Connection, Cooperation & Control course

Dog training generally focuses on teaching dogs specific behaviours, but forgets to include the relationship, communication and connection. Without those key ingredients, you end up with a dog who knows “stuff” like SIT, DOWN, STAY. But still drags you here and there, tuning out and sometimes just completely disconnecting. Sound familiar?

Distraction is a common problem for pet owners and professional dog trainers. The Connection, Cooperation & Control (CCC) training system bridges the gap between training at home and in public places to keep the dog engaged and cooperative while the rest of the world happens around him.

The CCC course focuses on the ingredients that create a strong relationship, like handler body language and intent, teaching dogs how to ask permission before dashing off or dragging you around. Best of all, this training system offers the opportunity to train the way real life happens – without a bait bag or treats in the handler’s pocket!

CCC uses food reward puzzles to offer the dog a richer experience, enhancing motivation, an eagerness to continue training, and making it easier to teach behavior and cooperation. Studies have shown that dogs wag their tails more when solving a problem and are more eager to repeat the experience than when they are simply given a reward for compliance.

Whether your dog’s just a Friendly Freddy, a Distracted Daisy, or even a Reactive Roger, you can have the joyful, cooperative and connected relationship that you want with your dog. Clients report immediate shifts in connection and cooperation after just one lesson!

The course is great for puppies and adult dogs and also ideal for those adolescent dogs who may have mailed their brains to another planet.

Puppy Classes 

The puppy classes are for puppies between 8-12 weeks of age and are held in small groups.
We will teach your puppy:

  • come when called;
  • socialise with people and other dogs;
  • sit and lie down on signal;
  • do stays;
  • wait for dinner and wait at door; and
  • walk beside you on a loose lead.
