Companion 1 is our beginner's class and is suitable for adolescent dogs older than 4 months or an older dog needing to brush up on their manners. Training exercises are relevant to the family dog and can be applied in the home or when out and about. For dogs younger than 18 weeks our PUPPY school may be more suitable. Classes are small (max. 8 dogs) so we can give you and your dog individual attention. We use positive training methods to teach basic obedience and life skills. You and your dog will enjoy every minute of training.
This is a 7 week course at beginner level.
NEXT INTAKE: September
Mandatory orientation session for handlers only is Wednesday 20 September 2023 at 6.45pm and Monday 25 September is the first night on the field.

If your dog shows aggression towards family members, other people or dogs or shows resource guarding tendencies, please contact us prior to completing the booking request as these issues require one-on-one training and cannot be addressed in a class environment.
Calm relaxed behaviour is encouraged in class with exercises using a mat. Some dogs become so relaxed we have to wake them up to go home!
