Golden Retriever Training

Beacon Essentials Course
For Puppies & Adult Dogs 16 Weeks of Age or Older - $220

Beacon Essentials is a six week obedience course with a flexible course structure designed to accommodate dogs of different skill levels. Whether you and your dog are brand new to the word of training, or would like to improve the skills you already have, this course will help take your training to the next level.

While most dogs are reasonably obedient in the home, many fail to behave in exciting or novel situations, like when visitors arrive or out at the park. Beacon Essentials is designed to teach you how to take the behaviours that your dog knows in some situations, and improve their skills so that they can behave in all situations.

While this course is suitable for owners who have already attended formal training with their dog at another school, no prior knowledge is required to attend.
