LifeSkills Training

LifeSkills are an essential part of your dog’s life. Having the correct skillset can enhance your dog’s life and wellbeing greatly. We teach you how to listen to your dog and what they are telling you. We only use calm and gentle methods throughout all of our training programmes. 

We have both on-site and off-site options for you.

Our training centre is based near Faringdon, Oxfordshire.

For travel-out we cover Oxfordshire, West Berkshire and their surrounding areas.

LifeSkills Training offers you and your dog fundamental skills that will benefit you both for life! We tailor our training programmes to best fit you and your dog’s needs and to recommend the most suitable training exercises to match your individual requirements. This can can cover: Recall, loose lead walking, settle, calm greetings, house manners, impulse control (stays and waits), heel-work, target training, enriching training games, social skills, scent work, calming behaviours, emergency stops, fun tricks, distance control, confidence building, food manners, retrieves, fun agility and much more!
