Dog Competition Training

‘It ain’t enough to talk about it – You gotta be about it’

Just you and your dog – no training aides, no tricks. Achieving success at competition level is the real challenge!

As competition trainers ourselves, we understand the demands of this discipline. We’re here to help you to reach the full potential of your handler-dog team’s competitive abilities in a trial/competition scenario.

Training is centred firmly on the relationship between handler and dog as this is fundamental to your success.

Our passion in training for competition obedience centres around the dog and handler bond; being in-sync and working as a single unit, developing drive, precision and results. This style of training builds the dog-handler bond to its greatest potential.

The PK9 Competition Training Package supports owners from the initial imprinting of behaviours during puppy-hood, right through to refining behaviours well into their dog’s trialling career.
