Play & Learn Class

Socialisation and training for older puppies and adult dogs

5 weeks for $130 or 10 weeks for $250
A 10% discount is available for pensioners and health care card holders, as well as for dogs that have done Puppy Preschool with me

This class builds on the skills developed in Puppy Preschool and it also suits the dog that has done little or no training, such as a dog you have rescued. It is not suitable for reactive dogs.

We work on:

  • A sustained sit, drop and stand
  • A longer wait and settle on a mat
  • Improving a reliable recall
  • Leave food or toys when asked
  • Loose-lead walking

We also play training games and do trick training. During recesses, the dogs play on the supplied play equipment, which provides confidence-building opportunities.

Contact us on +61 421 063 733 to book. Bookings are essential.
