Adult Basics

Available to all fully vaccinated dogs aged between 4 months and 18 months (at time of Orientation) who have had little to no formal training or require a refresher course.

This course includes self-control and confidence building exercises as well as basic trick training. The course will cover simple behaviour management techniques that are relevant to the group, to help overcome or prevent problematic behaviours from being established.
