Dog Training School

RSPCA Dog Training School is our brand new dog education program. Classes are catered towards dogs and puppies of all different ages and abilities and are limited to 8 dogs to allow participants to receive more individual attention by our experienced instructors. Our aim is to give your dog the required skills to have a happy, well-adjusted life with their family, using positive reinforcement. Initial training focuses on manners, frustration control, how to sit, drop, how to walk nicely on lead and how to introduce dogs to each other in a safe manner. The different levels are:

Orientation

All participants are required to attend a once off compulsory orientation. Here, you will meet your instructor, learn important information relating to your class and dog behaviour and receive your training equipment that you will utilise in class.

Duration: 1.5 hours – one week
Cost: $50
 

Introductory Levels

Puppy Preschool Puppies aged between 8 - 12 weeks
Puppy Kindy Puppies aged between 13 – 16 weeks

Don’t worry if you pooch isn’t quite ready to move onto the next level! We are happy for them to repeat until they are confident to graduate.  

Depending on the dynamics of the classes, there may not be on or off-lead play. It is critical for all dogs to have a good experience when learning to interact with each other and not have a negative experience that could impact their entire life. For this reason, the instructors will decide if playtime will occur during your class.
