Leadership 101

Like people, dogs aren’t born with good social skills. They need good leaders to show them how. It’s up to us to step up and take the lead to develop the foundations for better engagement, good manners and social harmony at home as well as out and about.

All dogs, regardless of age, breed, and temperament are capable of responding to good leadership.

Join us for a 4-week course presented by The Dog Workshop exclusive to Doghouse clients

The 4 week course is designed to:

  • Improve your understanding of dogs and their behaviours
  • Better manage your interactions with your dog
  • Develop mutual trust and respect between you and your dog
  • Bring calm to your household
  • Introduce controlled walking and public etiquette

The difference in Bella’s behaviours & indeed my ability to manage & lead Bella has enriched our life together. I wish I had the understanding that I gained through this program earlier and that I had completed this course before embarking on obedience training. Would highly recommend Leadership 101 to all doggie parents for dogs of any age – it was enjoyable, easy to implement & has made such a difference every day.


I cannot recommend Doghouse highly enough…I was so nervous after our previous experience at another daycare, but Doghouse understood Benji and all the staff are so loving! We undertook the leadership course there and it was fantastic! All the staff are amazing and take the time to talk to you, the course was great, the toys sold there are great (Benji loves to chew), the grooming is great, and they have a Snapchat account so you can keep up with all the doggies playtime!


About The Dog Workshop

Our primary trainer has been trained privately in the methods of the original Dog Whisperer, the late John Richardson and has a broad range of skills in leadership, communication, reporting and accountability, community engagement, event management, policy evaluation and development, all of which continue to be invaluable in the companion animal industry.

Just wanted to thank you for the Leadership 101 course. It was excellent. Zeeva is great at home and remains a work in progress when we step out the front door. We will get there and continue to train every day.


Rosie is much more enjoyable to walk now, and people have commented on her better behaviour and calmness. She is a very stubborn dog but she also learns quickly and enjoys training so I am really enjoying the process. The course has been just what I needed.

Mack was such a nightmare we’d stopped walking him. Every time I left the house he piddled inside. It was really hard to change my behaviour but it’s made such a difference to his confidence and happiness. We now love walking him (off lead) and I don’t remember the last time he piddled inside. It’ll be 12 months in Oct since we did the course and it’s like we own a different dog
