If you order 2 days before class I will bring along to class for you to collect.

Our course is held at our local vet, Hobsons bay Veterinary Clinic.  Designed for both new and outdated dog owners, families with kids or simply for a refresher on all things puppy. The four weeks is jam-packed with information from your experienced trainer.  

Uniquely staggered entry so you can join whenever so long as the weeks and times are subsequent and you watch the video provided prior to commencement of your class each week – practice is the key to success.

We will cover all things puppy, what to expect, how to train your puppy and socialise with covid restrictions in place.  You will be sent a video each week prior to class for your whole family to watch and practice. 

Your practical class will be simply to help you refine your handling skills and let your puppy socialise in a safe environment while the rest of the family watches on from home.
