The group classes are restricted to small numbers of participants to ensure sufficient attention is paid to each client and their dog. 

 

Classes are held at Yuille Park Community College, Violet Grove, Wendouree which offers a safe, sheltered and secure training environment. There are many distractions for your dogs to learn to ignore whilst they are being worked.  These include school play equipment, the Kitchen Garden, and a small farm.

Puppy Classes

Puppy Classes are designed to teach the bare basics of obedience and behaviour shaping to very young dogs.  They are suitable for puppies aged from 8 weeks to 6 months.

The location for training is at Yuille Park Community College and is ideal for very young puppies as the only dogs allowed on the premises are fully vaccinated, and the hard surfaces discourage the growth and transmission of dangerous viruses.

The exercises covered are:

Handling Basics

Sit

Sit-Stepaway (stay)

Walking nicely on lead

Boundary Setting

Recall to Name

And at the same time working on behavioural issues such as nipping, jumping up and toilet training.

2020 Costs: $120.00 for 4 lessons and a halter or collar.  Next term of classes commences Monday 10th February 2020

Intermediate Classes

Intermediate Classes are designed to challenge your dog beyond the basics of the Beginner Classes.  Dogs that have completed either the Beginner Group Classes or a set of Private Classes may join this class level.

 

The Intermediate Classes work on the basics but with higher degrees of distraction and difficulty, plus we teach some new exercises.  We also begin to work dogs on collar instead of relying on the halter.  Not all dogs will be ready for collar work, which is perfectly fine.

 

The exercises covered are:

Refinement of Heeling

Agility Exercises

Stand

Stand-Stepaway

Long Drop-Stepaway

Trust Exercises

Recall to Heel

2020 Costs: $150.00 for 6 lessons.  Next term of classes commence:  Monday 16th March 2020
