OBEDIENCE TRAINING

Group Obedience Classes

COVID 19 POLICY

All Services adhere to the current covid 19 policies.

BASIC OBEDIENCE

Starts:March 3nd

Day:Sunday

Time:1-2

Length:5 one hour sessions

Location: Vantreight Park

Rate: $252

A solid foundation for puppies or a great refresher for dogs who have had previous training. Also, a great introductory class for those considering more advanced levels of obedience training or competition.  

Beyond basic obedience training, I will help you understand what you need to become a strong leader for your dog. As no two dogs are the same, you will gain a better understanding of who your dog is and what they need to develop into a well socialised, confident, well-mannered dog. My goal is to transfer my skills to you.  All training is done using a positive reinforcement philosophy. 

Topics covered:

Feeding, crate training,  manners, greeting other dogs, keeping your dog safe, recall, basic obedience commands (sit, down, stay recall, leave it), space & boundaries, waiting & impulse control, avoiding separation anxiety, house training, leash skills, socialisation and problem prevention will all be covered in this class.

For all classes you will need:

  • High value treats (cheese, meat)

  • A hungry dog (please do not feed before class)

  • 6 foot leash

  • Your dogs favourite toy

  • Dog Crate

LEASH WALKING AND ADVANCED RECALL-TRANSITIONING FROM ON LEASH TO OFF LEASH

Location:Torquay Elementary School

Starts:Sunday March 3rd

Time:3:00

Length: 1 hour for 5 weeks

Rate: $252

We all get frustrated when our dog pulls on their leash or they take off when we call them. What happens on leash transfers to off leash. There is nothing more important than a dog who does not pull when walking and comes when they are called.  Too often we give them too much freedom before they are ready for it. Especially when there are high distractions. Loose leash walking and recall are important skills that we teach our dogs.  We want them and ourselves to be safe. Dogs love to work. A dog who has a job and uses its brain is happy and confident.  Beyond training, Recall Advanced Obedience and Loose Leash Walking not only challenges your dog, it teaches you how to build a strong relationship and partnership with them.  You will develop skills to handle your dog in any situation whether they are on or off leash. 

Topics covered:

Loose leash walking, advanced healing on and off leash, recall from distractions, holding a down, sit and standing stay with high distractions (other dogs chasing balls and toys, recalling away from playing dogs). Also, commands on the move, i.e. taking a down and standing stay command while in motion. A solid leave it.
