Beginner Classes

Our fixed length introductory classes include Puppy Kindy for young pups (9 – 15 weeks old) and Canine Companion Class (5 months and up) for adolescent through adult dogs. We also have a casual class called Juvenile Class (15 weeks – 5 months). See the Advanced Training tab for information about other classes. 

Our trainers are current Club members who, after training their own dogs, have undertaken extensive instructor training. They volunteer their time each week 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. Many instructors have trained one or more of their own dogs to competition standard.

Juvenile class is for puppies who have completed Puppy Kindy or equivalent but are not yet old enough for Canine Companion Class. The class features further socialisation, informal obedience, tricks and games, and advice on teaching good habits and reducing undesired behaviours.

Age: 15 weeks to 5 months

When: Tuesday night at 7:00pm   Duration: Casual attendance    Cost: $10 per night paid on arrival

Requirements:

  • Please bring your pup's current vaccination record on the first night. 
  • Closed shoes are required for safety. 
  • A flat collar or harness and soft lead for your puppy. (No check chains, slip leads or retractable leads).
  • A chill out mat or towel for the puppy to lay on and poo bags. 
  • Lots of small, varied, tasty treats cut to around the size of your little finger nail and a treat pouch or bum bag to store them in. We recommend high value treats such as mix of something soft, meaty and easy to digest such as cooked chicken or sausage, Chunkers or Prime100 roll. 

For more information about Juvenile Class, please phone:  0450 721 189 or email: gcdotc@yahoo.com.au
