Our Outdoor Obedience class is ideal for those who just want a regular training class to keep their dog engaged and happy. This mixed-ability class focuses on developing skills such as loose-lead walking, recalls, simple retrieves and sends, impulse control (like leave-it!), and waits and stays.
This class runs in our outdoor venue – whatever the weather! – and is particularly good for dogs who need to work on their impulse control, focus, and motivation in all environments.
For those who have passed the GCDS Gold Award, we run a Platinum Club focusing on more challenging obedience. You do not need to have trained with North K9 previously to attend! For more information on the Platinum Club, click here.
