Puppy Kindy is a four week program for young puppies. Classes focus on owner education, socialisation with dogs and people, and positive training in basic skills
This class is for puppies from 14 weeks to 5 months who have attended Puppy Kindy or equivalent but are too young to attend Obedience Class.
Canine Companion Class 1 is an 8 week program for dogs aged five months and older. It is follow by a further 6 weeks in Canine Companion Class 2. Our classes feature the most up-to-date methods of positive motivational training, with a particular focus on the needs of pet dogs and their families.
Gold Coast Dog Obedience Training Club Inc. caters for all levels of obedience from beginning pet manners to competition obedience classes. We use positive methods involving rewards.
The Gold Coast Dog Obedience Training Club Inc was established in 1971 and has helped thousands of Gold Coasters train their dogs. Over the years our training methods have changed dramatically from the old “jerk and pull” method using choke chains to exclusively positive methods using rewards and soft collars.
Our Instructors are Club members who, after training their own dogs, have undertaken extensive instructor training. They volunteer their time to teach you how to train your dog; we do not train your dog for you. They will also give advice on dealing with problems you may have with your dog at home. Most instructors have trained one or more of their own dogs to competition standard.
We also develop the skills of handlers and dogs who aspire to compete in obedience and agility. The Club is affiliated with Dogs Queensland and conducts several recognised obedience and agility competitions each year.
