What is a Genius Dog? A Genius Dog has amazing self-control, crazy focus and enviable confidence and optimism. A Genius Dog finds general day-to-day life super easy! They can think in arousal and make great decisions time after time.

We will work on the following skills:
- Loose lead walking;
- Relationship building;

- Shaping behaviours – under, over, through and around objects;
- Fitness, body awareness & movement;
- Boundary Games (help with counter surfing, greeting guests, manners and calmness)
- Duration Sit, Down, Stand positions (building a solid stay);
- Advancing life skills (in Summer, group walk); and
- many more….so much more!!!
We are looking forward to having you train with us! To help us ensure you have the best possible training experience, please arrive at the time specified. Devon Dogs is a Centre of Excellence training facility and we want to ensure all class change overs are smooth and easy. For this reason, can you please ensure you and your dog remain in your vehicle until the trainer is present and ready for you.
We understand it is difficult to guess arrival times and we know you will have planned for the unexpected in your journey! Should you arrive a little early we recommend stopping at the Shell Services just off of the A30, only half a mile away from us. There is a Little Waitrose with tea/coffee and lots of healthy (or not so healthy!) snacks and prepared meals as well as toilet facilities. If you wish to go for a short walk, you can access the Granite Way in Sourton
