Consolidation Course

The Consolidation class is for dogs who have completed a puppy or adult basics class and who are aged 12 months or older and fully vaccinated. The aim of the class is to continue to build on the behaviours learnt in the basics class and add some new behaviours to help your dog become a good canine citizen. It will include some revision and extension of your dog skills for self-control and confidence building plus fun tricks and games to build a better relationship with your dog. You will learn how to get your dog to be calm and settled and how to problem solve behaviour struggles. The course will be 5 weeks and will be tailored to the group to achieve the best outcomes.
