building dog's confidence
under pressure


In the ring, almost anything can be perceived as pressure by our dogs. Most of the time we just want them to "deal with it". However, there are strategies we can use to teach the dogs how to feel comfortable with pressure. They don't just have to deal with it, instead, they can thrive! 


This workshop is for you if:

  • Your dog has a lot of feelings about ring barriers, people approaching, judges standing behind them, small spaces, spectators outside the ring etc. 

  • You want to teach your dog how to happily work while under pressure 

  • In this workshop we will cover:

  • How to build confidence in our dogs 

  • Games and tricks for improving our dogs ability to overcome pressure 

  • Implementation and application for obedience, rally and agility 

This workshop will meet you and your dog where you're at. After teaching the games, we will discuss how to implement these games into your obedience or agility work so you can continue progressing your dog's ability to overcome pressure. 


Please bring: 

  • Plenty of high value treats 

  • Platform / mat / touch pad (whatever your dog is familiar with) 

  • Pen / paper for notes (worksheets will also be provided) 




The Canine Good Neighbour Program is a 12-step test, that when completed successfully, will ensure that one of our most favoured companions, the dog, is accepted as a valued member of our communities right across the country. Canine Good Neighbours can be counted on to present good manners at home, in public places and in the presence of other dogs.

The test is non-competitive and allows dog and handler to demonstrate confidence and control in 12 steps. It assesses the handler and dog's relationship, together with the handler's ability to control the dog. Dogs are evaluated on their ability to perform basic exercises as well as their ability to demonstrate good manners in everyday situations.

The 12 Steps:

  1. Accepting A Friendly Stranger

  2. Politely Accepts Petting

  3. Appearance and Grooming

  4. Out For A Walk

  5. Walking Through A Crowd

  6. Sit/Down On Command and Stay In Place

  7. Come When Called

  8. Praise/Interaction

  9. Reaction To A Passing Dog

  10. Reaction To Distractions

  11. Supervised Isolation

  12. Walking Through A Door/Gate
