Location: Darra

This class is for the older puppy or dog aged 5 months & over. If your dog has completed a puppy pre-school, or if you have already started training at home, then this is the class for you.

Obedience training not only teaches your dog to sit, down, stand, come, stay and walk on a loose lead, it also promotes the communication between owner and dog so there is a greater understanding from both ends of the lead. These commands are learned with the distractions of other dogs and people to enhance control. We teach hand signals and verbal commands and work towards the dog responding without the use of rewards.

The course also teaches exercises, which are practical to your everyday activities with your dog like street walks, and good manners around the home. A full aptitude test is completed by you which gives us vital information on your dog’s true and learned behaviors, this enhances our strategies to help you problem solve your dog’s behaviour. Don’t forget our “fun attitude” we have here at Wagtails, we also teach tricks, play games and do agility in this course.
