Competitive Obedience, Coaching Programme with Alesya Miroshnikov


Saturday 28 April, 05, 26 May, 02, 09 June 2018, Woking

This five-week coaching programme will introduce you to or work on your next steps in Competitive Obedience. You don’t have to intend to compete, but be prepared to commit to train (and have fun) at a similar level, to the best of your and your dog’s abilities, including home practice.

Competitive Obedience is a canine sport in which handler and dog work as a team. The handler directs the dog through a series of behaviours that demonstrate control, focus and precision. It provides high mental stimulation to the dog, with low physical impact. Obedience elements are also a requirement in other dog sports, like IPO, Working Trials, etc.

Coaching will be tailored to each handler-dog team and can cover either or both UK Competitive Obedience as well as FCI Obedience (Fédération Cynologique Internationale), for a wider variety of exercises. There will be focus on distraction training, overtraining, the detail in different exercises and the dog’s ability to listen instead of anticipating.

Group size is limited to four, to maximise individual attention and get the most of each session. Participants will have access to personalised online coaching between sessions. Any dog breed and temperament can participate, as long as handlers have a preliminary idea of what Competitive Obedience is about, i.e. by having watched videos, shows or dogs performing exercises. You don’t need previous experience, but a basic working relationship is desirable. Please contact us prior to booking if unsure about anything.

Please read details and joining instructions under ADDITIONAL INFORMATION below.



Alesya Miroshnikov is a certified dog trainer and behaviourist with more than ten years experience in training, helping as well as educating owners and their dogs. She has been successfully working with dogs of different ages, sizes, shapes, breeds, types of temperament and problems. Alesya’s philosophy is that dog training is not just some short periods of time when you teach your dog to sit, lay down, walk on the lead or perform some tricks. Training involves understanding your dog’s behaviour, establishing a good relationship, teaching your dog the rules s/he should respect in/outdoors. Train your dog as you live, without separating training from your everyday activities, so training becomes a part of life. Alesya is passionate about Competitive Obedience and has achieved numerous awards with her dogs in Poland and the UK.
