You will continue to teach your “teen-aged” dog good manners and practice calm behaviour in a group setting. Prepare for class using information and videos online, and practice foundation skills before you arrive.
Fully vaccinated pups between 5 months (20 weeks) and 8 months can join our Tweenager Dog Manners Course after they have participated in a Puppy Course. As always our focus is on positive reinforcement and fun!
As with the Puppy Course, the Tweenager Course is organised so that you practise new training topics each week. The training topics in this course build on and add to the topics in the Puppy Course. Extra emphasis is put on how to navigate training while your pup’s brain is changing and developing in their social world. Training techniques will help you meet the challenges of of training your young “teenager” dog.
Our class venue is Billy’s Day-Care for Dogs in Belmont, WA. This purpose built indoor centre is perfect for distracta-dogs (teenagers, right?). We can control the environment and spread the kids out and then re-group them to improve their learning. Class size is limited to 12 pups, and will be run workshop style.
Once you have enrolled, you will need to provide some details on your pup and their history and habits. This is to ensure that they get the most benefit from classes. We’ll contact you to confirm the details of your first class in the week prior.
Tweenager Dog Course includes four 1 hour classes in Belmont, Western Australia on Saturdays at 10:20am, PLUS weekly Wednesday night Q&A sessions, and 5 weeks of online learning.
