Obedience

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.

Basic Dog Obedience Classes

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.

Would you like to have:

  • A dog that is well-mannered at home and in public?
  • A dog that willingly focuses on you and is easy to manage?
  • A dog that understands what you ask and is willing to comply?

If so, we can help. Register for Canine Companion Class 1 and Class 2.

Class 1 will build your training skills, so that you can

  • Teach your dog to focus on you and display self-control when asked
  • Improve your dog’s manners in everyday life
  • Teach useful behaviours like sit, drop, come, stay, and walk on lead without pulling

 

Class 2 will help you consolidate what you have learned in Class 1–

  • Longer stays at greater distance
  • More reliable recalls
  • Improved behaviour on leash walks
  • You will also learn stand, leave it, how to stop your dog on the spot from a distance, and some tricks.
