General Companion

This training programme is designed to teach adolescent and adult dogs to respond quickly to a selection of commands/cues whilst eradicating undesirable habits.


Minimum 6 weeks (depending on the individual dog) and a compulsory handover of two half-day sessions with the owner upon completion of the programme at The Dog House, Wales. All handlers/carers of the dog should be present at the handover.

Ideal age:

From 6 months old (depending on breed and maturity).

Elements included are:

  • Teaching 8–12 basic cues so your dog responds to voice, hand and whistle signals. We also try to teach a further 8 – 12 behaviours. A printed guide is provided as a reference.

  • The teaching of rapid response to recall (coming immediately when called).

  • Discouragement and elimination of pulling on the lead, boisterous behaviour, jumping up, chasing, and other behavioural issues.

  • Depletion of vocalising when left alone, over-sensitivity to loud noises, destructiveness, stealing, and other household problems including house training.

  • Sit and stay commands taught and reinforced before crossing a road and approaching an opening doorway, car door, or gateway.

  • Regular exercise and socialisation with a variety of breeds for a minimum of 1 hour each day.
