Group Classes

Welcome to our selection of Group classes.

K9 FUNdamentals provides training and guidance not just with your dog but you will also leave our classes with a greater sense of confidence with the necessary skills learnt. Our Group classes are typically small in participant numbers. This ensures that we optimise our time and attention with each owner and dog. Whilst we are providing guidance and training to the entire group, we also tend to observe and pick up nuances that may be specific to your dog. We make a point of providing this feedback to you so that you can further enhance the learnings gained from the class.

Currently all the below classes are held in our private training area located in Dairy Flat (5 minutes from Old Albany Village).

Adolescent

So you may have done puppy classes previously or taken on the responsibility of a teenage dog. They are now at an age where you're finding that your dog has forgotten some things and you're struggling with them pushing boundaries (just like human teenagers!)

This course suits dogs aged between 6 months and 2 years old.

What we will cover:

  • Helping your dog to want to listen to you

  • Tips, tricks and games to encourage interaction

  • Having your dog want to spend time with you

  • Reinforcing those commands you'd previously taught that may no longer be working

Investment for this 4 week course (4 x 1 hr classes) is $220 (includes Group follow-up notes per class)

(This course is not suitable for aggressive dogs. We can assist with individual cases if you would like to know more )


Reactive

Does your dog get overly excited by barking and pulling towards other dogs when you're out walking? Do you get that sense of dread when you see someone else's dog knowing how your dog is going to react when they see it?

Then this course is for you.

We teach you techniques on how to get your dog showing more interest in you than other dogs, using distance and distraction to your advantage.

Investment for this 5 week course (5 x 1 hr classes) is $400 (includes Group follow-up notes per class)

Loose lead walking

Are you struggling with walking your dog calmly beside you? Instead you feel like your arm is about to be yanked off as your dog pulls you down the road?

Then this class is for you.

Recall

How many times have you been left standing at the beach or park calling out your dogs name and they're ignoring you?

Then this is the class for you.

We teach you how to get your dog to want to come back to you and how they'll find you much more exciting than anything else that's around.
