Dogtraining101 provides the trainers for this not for profit so you get the best training possible and they get the financial benefit.

 

All our Group Courses are designed to build either on each other or in conjunction with them.  This is about building a relationship with your dog.  Unfortunately there are many out there who do not teach you how to do this.  We provide these courses in an environment that can be distracting for the dog so they learn to trust you in all situations.  Once you have done a course from Level 1 and above you can redo it anytime for Free for the life of that dog.

For any Obedience course there must be at least 2 dogs in the class to go ahead or we will offer you an alternate solution.  There is also a maximum of 6.

Below are all the courses offered in a Group situation and their costs. Locations offered vary.  To check you can use our quick search function

Puppy School Course Information

For Puppies – Starting age must be less than 16 weeks of age or less

This is not your run of the mill puppy school – we are here to ensure the proper development of your puppy, not add on sell you or throw treats in with the puppies and call it socialization.  The course has been designed on the feedback from clients unhappy with what is in the marketplace, there are now a number of other businesses that copy our formats and methods as we lead the way.  The trainers are trained in Dog Behaviour and are in the field training dogs and dealing with behavioral issues with clients every day – not trained in a shop reading a book on learning it via an in store training system.  We have seen too many clients disappointed with whats on offer or given incorrect even dangerous advice in stores.   There are a maximum of only 6 puppies allowed in each class to ensure you and your dog learn what you need to, and we strongly encourage families to bring their kids to learn.

We have online videos to assist with your learning and information booklet to assist you.

Please note – these puppies are in the most formative part of their life – as such we never use any technique that is cruel, inhumane or harsh.  The course is designed to use treats to MAP in their mind specific behaviors for later in life.  Once they graduate and are old enough we don’t use treats to bribe our dogs to do basic commands and basic obedience.  We use positive rewards not food and basic obedience teaches you how to do this.

Reactive Dog Course

$300 – 1x 60min in Home session – 1 x 4week specialized group course

This is not a normal dog obedience course – this is designed for leash aggression and reactivity to other dogs.  This is for dogs that have previously been attacked or owners that have been attacked.  This is for the owners too scared to do obedience or rejected by every other training organization who only know how to use food.

NOTE – we do not use food, static collars etc in this course. Only 3 Dogs per Trainer.

What does the course involve – there are two parts – firstly some private tuition to prep you then the group component.  The cost covers the in-home component – group component.

Part 1 

  • 1x 60min In home sessions first with the dog.

Part 2

  • Week 1 – Revisit the principles learned in home but in the group setting – with Mat training and Sit.  Learn how to get your dog in a controlled position for more than 5 seconds.  We start to teach you how to build trust with your dog and that you are the protector.

 

  • Week 2 – We visit the Heel Command.  We start to increase the level of stimulation under control to build resilience and confidence both in the owner and the dog.

 

  • Week 3 – We visit the Stay command.  We continue to increase resilience and trust but without the owner being next to the dog.

 

  • Week 4 – All commands are put together in environments that will continue to build trust in the owner.
