Dog Behaviour Classes in Melbourne South Eastern Suburbs & Bayside
As dogs grow out of their puppyhood, it is essential to partake in training if you want a well-behaved dog. Our classes teach you how to gain control when needed, and encourage your dog to be enthusiastic and eager to please.
We have two dog classes available:
1. Intermediate Puppy School
Our Intermediate Puppy School is designed to get the best out of your growing pup and is suitable for pups 16 weeks – 12 months old. The classes are held in Elwood (85 Ormond Rd) on Sunday mornings (11.30 – 12.30) over a four-week period.
We cover a wide range of subjects such as helping owners with issues left over from puppyhood, like toilet training or mouthing, and other problems that can arise during a dog's adolescence. Achieving general household manners, walking on a loose lead, recall, acknowledging good behaviour and how to deal with bad behaviour are just some of the topics we cover.
Even if your dog doesn't have any behavioural issues, and you're just interested in learning the A-B-C's of dog training, you are more than welcome to join us.
Having attended our previous puppy classes is not essential, just notify the trainer on your first day.
Dog behaviour training makes all the difference
2. Dog Behaviour Classes
Dog Behaviour Classes are suitable for dogs of all ages and are held in Cheltenham (161 Park Rd) on Saturday mornings (10.30 – 11.30) over a four-week period. There are usually about six dogs in each class and two professional dog trainers.
Three of the four weeks are held indoors in a controlled environment (away from outside distractions and unpredictable weather), but we also spend some time in the street and at a nearby park for loose leash walking and recall training.
We cover a wide range of topics, including helping people with any recurring issues and doing some foundation work to encourage your dog to be naturally calmer and better behaved. These classes are ideal for people who want to continue with further training after Puppy School or for those who need a little help with their dog being boisterous, bossy or needy.
No previous experience or attendance is required.
Tackling all your urgent dog behavioural issues
Dogs that have shown any sign of aggression will need to be assessed before being allowed to attend.
Prices include the full tuition, notes and a graduation certificate. If you reside in the City of Glen Eira (they are the most pro-active council!), we also include a free assessment for an obedience certification, which enables you to receive the next year of council dog registration for free and 1/2 price for the rest of your dog's life (more than paying for the course).
