Group Class: Please Read – Your puppy needs to be fully vaccinated, before attending class. What does this mean?
The Basics+Canine Enrichment Group Class (2 hours only) min class size 4.
If you and your dog want to have some fun while training, then this class is for you.
The Basics+Canine Enrichment: Walking on a loose leash, Sit, Leave it, Wait/Stay, Recall, Jumping up, leash pulling, plus any other minor problems.
Canine Enrichment: Most dogs today, have lost the jobs they were born and bred to do and while physical exercise is good its not enough, dogs like humans need mental stimulation. Canine enrichment is great for teaching your dog to listen and focus on you, while having fun along the way, it also helps alleviate boredom, as the saying goes “a happy dog is a tired dog”. In this class I will introduce you and your dog to: Canine Parkour, (it will make your daily walk and training more interesting and fun), scent games, plus a few ideas on how to keep your dog happy and occupied with everyday items, we often throw away. These games and training can be adapted so you can do them in your own backyard or inside your home.
Private Training Options
$60 Private Lesson (one hour only) 1 or 2 problems you would like help with. (aggression not included)
$120 Private Lessons (two hours only) 2 to 4 problems you would like help with. (aggression not included)
$250 Private Lessons (2 x 2 hour) The 2nd 2 hour lesson will be in one months time. This will give you time to practice what you have learnt. We will keep in contact via email, text & phone calls. (aggression, basic obedience, long line usage for recreational and distance training).
My aim is to also promote dog safety & awareness so all training options will cover: How to socialize your dog, the right way. Basic dog behaviour & safety around dogs & people/Dog bite prevention, Responsible Dog Ownership/Dog Control Act.
Making a dog safety difference in 2019, most dog bites are preventable. It would be great if we could all in a small way help, turn the tide and try to reduce, through education, the number dog bites/ dog attacks in NZ.
Hopefully along the way, prevent someone from getting bitten and save a few dogs, a one way trip to the vet.
