Club Classes and Joining

We are a small group of dedicated volunteers who enjoy spending quality time with our dogs and want to pass our knowledge on to others to benefit both dogs and households.

We run classes all through the year, except for a brief period at Christmas and in the midst of darkest winter. We start new Basic Obedience Domestic classes regularly (depending on need) and you can naturally progress to other classes as you and your dog’s skill set develop. 

Once you have passed the basic class you can become a club member for $65 per year and this will give you access to almost any of the classes on offer. 

Basic Obedience Domestic Class Tuesday (Times may vary) $120 for 10 weeks.  An entry level class to teach you and your dog basic canine commands and manners. In this class we will cover loose lead walking, stays, recall and basic sit and down commands etc.
At the end of this course there is a small assessment which will need to be passed before moving into any of the other classes we provide, this is to ensure there is a certain level of control. 

What do I need for this class?

*Dog must be registered with a local district council 
*Have a current vaccination certificate showing full parvo shots
*A lead & Collar (haltis and harnesses are also fine) Poo Bags  Treats (preferably soft treats) 
*Appropriate clothing and shoes for dog training (no jandals)
*Bitches in season must be left at home for the duration of the season which can be up to 21 days.  If your bitch comes into season halfway through a course, talk to your instructor as we will aim to slot you into the next available class

If you would like to express interest in this class please email our course coordinator Sandra at and she will be able to inform you of any upcoming classes
