Puppy Classes


I am committed to providing affordable, family-friendly dog training services.

I use reward-based training methods which will help you and your dog to build a strong and affectionate relationship based on trust. Classes are based around teaching your dog practical obedience for daily living. Fun activities are included at every level of training.

Puppy Classes

Puppy SchoolI run puppy classes outdoors in a fully fenced training area at Chandlers Hill Vet Clinic, 190 Chandlers Hill Road, Happy Valley and indoors at Playful Pooch Dogcare, 5 Sherriffs Road, Lonsdale. Puppy classes are offered on a “Roll-On, Roll-Off” continuing entry basis i.e. you can join any time as long as there is a place available, and you attend for 6 weeks. Puppy Classes are for puppies aged 8-14 weeks at enrolment.  Puppies can attend once they have had at least one core vaccination. Cost is $90 for 6 weeks. Course covers basic obedience, puppy management, appropriate safe socialisation, teaching your puppy to accept handling, and fun games to play with your pup. Puppies are on lead during class so that your puppy learns to be calm and polite around other dogs, and to pay attention to YOU.

Group Classes for Young Dog

The “Up From Pup” class is for dogs 4-12 months held at Chandlers Hill Vet – 6 weeks for $90. For older dogs with little or no training, I recommend one-on-one training as it is less stressful for your dog and much easier for you without the distraction of other dogs around. Dogs with behaviour problems cannot be effectively helped in class and will need private lessons.
