We have recognised the need for companion dog training and specialise in exactly that. Many dog training schools and centers focus on competition and professional training, which is way too “high” for the loving pet owner family. Most dog owners desire a well mannered companion at home, that has basic obedience skills and is a pleasure to have around. Our classes are designed to offer just that. Our puppy foundation courses start every 1st Saturday of the month, so don’t miss out. Scroll down to the bottom to contact your preferred branch and book your place.
Our puppy classes are generally 6 weeks long and focus mainly on socialisation and socialising (yes, there is a difference). The ideal age to start training your pup to become a stable member of our society, starts at the age of 5 weeks – yes, it’s that early. For health and safety reasons, though, we can only accommodate your pup after its second vaccination. You will learn to teach your puppy how to sit, lie down, come when called, stay, and walk nicely on leash. And this all in a fun way without harsh method – so remember to bring a bag of super yummy treats. In addition, you will get plenty information about common puppy problems, and how to work through them, such as chewing, biting, jumping up, digging, toilet training, etc.
Most of our puppies that graduated as Super Pup, are still emotionally and developmentally too young to be integrated into the more advanced classes. Their attention span and concentration ability is not sufficient to stay focused during a 45 minute training session. This lack of attention is often a huge frustration to the owners who wish to see results, which the puppy is unable to give. This is why we offer this group for doggie teenagers from the age of 6 – 12 months, to keep the puppy in the learning process but not to overwhelm it with requirements it cannot meet. In this group, we continue with basic exercises as learnt in puppy class, to give puppy and owner the confidence to handle the basics. Once your dog has matured enough, it may move to the advanced class.
This course is for the handler and dog team that have built a relationship already by attending our puppy or teenager classes. Depending on demand and availability, each branch offers various advanced training courses, such as Canine Good Citizen, scenting and nosework, service dog training, etc. Please inquire with your instructor about ongoing training option for you and your dog
This class also runs over 2 months and is designed for new dog handlers whose dogs are older than 5 months and cannot join the puppy course anymore. Older dogs are very difficult to integrate into a group class, and play with other strange dogs can be quite risky. This is why we prefer teaching these classes individually, either at our training schools, or at your home. Your dog will learn basic manners and you will be prepped in dog handling and communication. Your instructors will give you individual attention and assist with problem behaviours. Please contact one of our branches in your area via the contact form, and our instructors will get back to you.
