Basic Obedience - Mindful Manners - Mindfulness4dogs

Six lessons, each one hour long

Price : $199.95

(Must have attended Basic BowlingoProgram)

Now that you have completed the Basic Bowlingo™ Program, you have a clear understanding of the principles that build a strong foundation for effective communication and a long-lasting positive relationship between you and your dog, the next step is to develop the fluency of each of these skills through our Fluent Bowlingo™ Program.

Each of the six sessions has been designed to allow you to enhance the accuracy of your Bowlingo™ skills – now is the time to refine each element in your application of these fundamentals. With regular practice and support, you and your dog can make great progress in the fluency of your communication. 


Just a quick recap of what we believe about training a dog and what our Bowlingo programs are all about:

Communication is Key

Your dog does not speak English – obviously – and you do not speak dog. So the number one issue in dog training is communication. Our Bowlingo training programs teach you how to ‘speak’ your dog’s language – called Bowlingo – (which, interestingly, is 90% body language) and we help you to ‘attach’ english words to certain desired actions or tasks your dog needs to be able to live comfortably with you and your family – e.g. sit, stay, come, etc

Obedience is about Relationship

Even if you were Dr Dolittle and could perfectly communicate with your doggo, their obedience would still be down to the relationship that you have with them – and the context of the situation (i.e. why and when the command is given and what else is happening at the time). So, we help you to develop your relationship with your furry friend – i.e. for you to better understand them and for them to better understand you.

Have you read our Terms of Attendance?

Terms of Course Attendance

    • Your dog must be up to date with their vaccination and worming to attend this course, please check with your vet if you are unsure before booking.
    • For dogs that have graduated from the Basic BowlingoPrograms.
    • Your dog must be sociable with other dogs.
    • Dogs that bark excessively in a group class environment are not suitable to attend this class as this means that other handlers won’t be able to hear instructions and the excessive barking can cause anxiety with other dogs. If this should happen, we will, unfortunately, have to ask you to leave and you will forfeit the cost of your place as we will not be able to offer that place to anyone else. If you feel that this may be an issue for you and your dog, please do contact us to book a Bowlingo Ability and Readiness session. In this 1-on-1 private session we assess your dog and, if required, discuss what support and guidance can be provided to enable your doggo to be ready to attend one of our Bowlingo™ programs.
    • Late arrivals are not catered for. Late arrivals would not only disrupt the lesson, but also unsettle the dogs and clients that have arrived on time, and the lesson would have to be halted to allow for these dogs to be resettled along with the late arriving dog — who is likely to take longer to calm down in the new environment. Due to the above and to ensure the safety and security of all attending, the doors will be closed and locked at the start of each training session and will not be opened until the end of the session.
    • If you feel that you cannot make it on time to the class, you will need to make other arrangements.
      • A penalty fee will be charged and you will need to transfer to another class
