Goodog workshop and training sessions on rotation:

Recall:
Do you want the perfect recall and a dog who comes back no matter what? The Goodog Recall workshop helps owners and dogs perfect their recall. Learning a good recall also assists us keep our dogs safe from roads or exciting but sometimes dangerous items, like snakes or baits.

Leave It:
In this workshop Barbara teaches a solid ‘leave it’ cue. The ‘leave it’ cue assists in reaching any unknown items before your dog can – and potentially save their life.

Loose Leash Walking
Do you want your dog to walk nicely on a leash, ignore distractions and focus on you rather than all the other interesting things out there? We show you in a fun way how to train your dog to enjoy leash walking.

Training Refresher for Pandemic Pups and Covid Dogs:
In this 2 hour workshop we’ll specifically address puppies and dogs who had their routine or training affected by the pandemic. They may have forgotten their training, or become socially awkward. Therefore, this is a refresher workshop on everything. We’ll cover Recall, Loose Leash Walking, Tricks, how to behave around other dogs, and whatever pops up on the day. Barbara wrote an article for Australian Dog Lover about covid dogs, so join this workshop if this sounds like your dog: Covid Dogs: Lonely and Socially Inept!

Trick Training:
Trick training is a great way to improve your relationship with your dog and have some fun. We teach some basic tricks like take a bow, spin, weave through legs, then move to targeting, picking up specific items and how to close a door or turn on a light.

Goodog Graduate Refresher:
Join our Goodog Graduate Refresher – a fast pace fun course for clients who have completed one of our Puppy Preschools or Teenage, Rescue & Apartment dog classes. This is a 2 week class, one hour each week. This is a 2 week class, one hour each week.
