Puppies and dogs must have up-to-date vaccination records. We recommend puppies are at least 16 weeks to start in Level 1.
Our programs are designed for companion dogs and their people. Classes are outdoors - we keep the size small (6-8 dogs) to maximise one-on-one assistance and strive to provide a suitable environment for you and your dog to learn in successfully.
We want our clients to feel empowered to understand their dogs, reach their training goals, and problem solve along the way.
To enrol in a class please complete a profile form and we will send you an email.
