Classes

Group Classes:

Group classes are a great way to start off your training journey with your dog.  The class environment enables you to work with your dog amongst naturally occurring distractions as well as giving you a chance to meet other dog owners.  Group numbers are kept small with a maximum number of 5 dogs per class to allow individual coaching from the instructor.

Due to the current COVID-19 pandemic all classes are currently postponed however, the cogs are starting to move to re-open!  Keep your eyes peeled for more updates, to ensure you are kept in the loop you can also subscribe to our newsletter here!

Upcoming Classes:

Life Skills

This class is designed to teach you and your dog skills and techniques to handle the everyday challenges life throws at you, from focusing on you in the face of distractions (squirrel!), coming back when called, walking on a loose leash or meeting visitors politely.  We focus on building concepts such as focus, impulse control and confidence as well as building your relationship with your dog.  These classes are fun and packed full of great games you can play with your dog, so if you’re struggling with your dog choosing to chase critters, jumping up on guests, pulling on leash or generally not paying much attention to you – this is the class for you!

Class cost $180 including tax

Classes run 1 hour a week for 5 weeks 

Date: TBC

Location: Braefoot Community Association, 1359 McKenzie Avenue

The Confidence Builder

This class is perfect for dogs who are struggling with their confidence, who need a boost to help get them out of their shell and give them the confidence they need to enjoy their world to the fullest.  All the games in this class are aimed at increasing our shy dogs confidence and to help them see things with a glass half full approach instead of a glass half empty! If you have a dog who finds novel items or environments scary, who prefers to hide than explore or who gets a little overwhelmed from time to time – this is the class for you!
