JUNIOR DOG TRAINING CLASS
Our Junior Training Classes are for dogs who are over 4 months of age and who may have missed out on attending our puppy classes OR for those that have attended our puppy classes but wish to do some further training with their dog. During this class we hope to give you a better understanding of your dog and help him or her become a well-mannered member of the community.
- Teach basic manners (Sit, Come, Lie Down, Stay, Stay, and Leave);
- Teach dogs to walk nicely on the lead;
- Help owner to get their dogs attention and teach them to come away from another dog when called;
- Help owners to relax/calm their dogs and teach them to go and lie on their bed when asked;
- Teach dogs to accept and enjoy being handled for Vet checks and grooming;
- Discuss responsible pet ownership;
- Help owners with any problems they may be having with their dogs.
Our Junior dog training classes are a 4 week class held each month (enrollments dependent) held in both Cooma and Jindabyne. These classes are unique as they are held in different locations each week and once you have completed the introductory session (which can be done as a home visit or by joining in with our monthly puppy class introductory session group) then you can start your 4 week training sessions when ever you like. These classes are independent of each other and we accept new dogs for the 4 week course each week meaning the dogs get to learn in a variety of different situations and meet different dogs each week. You may keep coming to our Junior Dog Training course until you feel you have gotten the most out of the training and have the well behaved dog you wish for, therefore all levels of training are welcome and the class is ideal for those that have previously attended our puppy class and want further training or for those that are just starting out.
All dogs must be up to date with their vaccinations. Classes are held in Cooma and Jindabyne throughout the year and dogs must be people and dog friendly to join this class. If they have previously had problems with people or other dogs then this will be assessed as part of the private introductory session prior to joining the class. During this assessment your dogs social skills with people and other dogs will be assessed to ensure they will be happy in a group situation. This is necessary to ensure the smooth running of the classes, but also to make sure your dog will be able to cope in a group of other dogs and people. If your dog is not happy around strange people or dogs then he/she would not benefit from the class and he/she may end up more stressed than before.
If we feel your dog would not suit our Junior dog training class then we can continue with private lessons or we have a Reactive dog class which may be more suited.
Please note: The introductory session is mandatory and must be completed before attending any of the rolling enrollment sessions. Once you have booked into the Junior Dog Group session, you will be contacted to organise a time for the Private Introductory session.
