The best time to start training your new puppy is as soon as they come home! In this class you will learn important management strategies to set your puppy on the right path to a lifetime of learning.
Did you love attending the Baby Puppy School class, or another puppy preschool program? Now your puppy is growing up it is vitally important that they continue learning the behaviours you want in your family dog! Senior Puppy takes up where Baby Puppy School left off - you will build on the skills you have already learned and will learn a whole lot more!
Is your dog 4 months or older and brand new to the world of training? Or perhaps they attended Puppy Class a while ago and you really need a refresher? Have some behaviours developed that you would like to improve? The RSPCA School for Dogs Foundation Class caters for dogs of all ages – our small classes ensure that everyone receives the individual attention they need.
Have you completed our Senior Puppy or Foundation Class and are now really hooked on positive reinforcement training? Perhaps you would like to take your new skills “on the road” on street walks, or for a cup of coffee at the local coffee shop? Or want to gain more advanced training skills before you undertake another doggy activity like agility, treibball or dog dancing? Life Skills is the class for you!
Group classes are not a suitable environment for some dogs. One on one training can help you and your dog with concerns such as barking at other dogs while out and about; resource guarding (e.g. growling over food or toys); home alone troubles; settling in a new pet; and/or issues related to aggression.
