Continuation Training
 
6 Week Basic Class
 
The 6 Week Basic Class is to improve on the behaviours taught in the above classes, you will continue on with the Social manners in a fun environment. Your dog will learn longer duration and more distance for the Sit and Drop commands. Better focus and be able to work closely with other dogs.
 
Basic, Intermediate to Advanced Levels (Membership)
 
The Basic (same as above), Intermediate to Advanced classes are an alternative to the 6 Week Basic Class and continues with the commands taught in the 6 Week Classes but getting more consistency and aiming for a higher standard.    Joining as a Member entitles you to reach the Intermediate to Advance Levels which includes regular Fun Days (playing games, Morning Teas and more).   Over the summer and weather permitting we plan trips to the beach as a group or to Navan Park to walk around the lake as a socialisation exercise.
