GOOD MANNERS +6 MONTHS
We offer a seven week course designed to develop basic good manners for dogs over the age of 6 months. The first class is dog free where we cover theory, equipment and discuss what will be happening in the course and what to prepare.
Our venue is located in Penrith at Building E1, 1 Salmon Close, Penrith. (corner of Castlereagh Road and Andrews Road) The training room is equipped with seating and your own training zone to focus on working with your dog. We will teach you how to train and work with your dog utilising a clicker and reward based training.
Classes start every 4 weeks on both Saturday and Sundays.
We have up to five dogs in a class so we can give you personal attention.
The Good Manners course total cost is $350. Prepayment is required to reserve your place in the class.
Please note there are no refunds for cancellations 7 days before the class start date. Booking cancellations will incur an administration fee and online charge of $50.
