Canine College

6 x 1 hour classes, weekly - $360.00

Hunters Hill / Boronia Park

For dogs 5 months and older


Does your dog pull on lead, jump up on your guests, ignore you when you call him to come to you at the park?

If so, Canine College can help!


The most common cause of death for dogs under the age of two is euthanasia due to inappropriate behaviour. Behaviour such as digging, barking and snapping can become an enormous problem in a family’s life. Training provides your dog with skills and guidelines, and it promotes confidence in your dog. At Canine College we teach you how to prevent these behaviours becoming a problem.


Although for most pupils, Canine College is a follow-up from Puppy Pre-school, graduation from Puppy Pre-school is not a pre-requisite – all dogs aged 5 months and older are welcome. Canine College is run on Saturday mornings and classes are kept small with a maximum 6 dogs. Two qualified, force free instructors are always present to provide you and your dog with the assistance and attention you need. The underlying principles of sound dog training are used – kindness and positive reinforcement.

Plus, there is plenty of opportunity for fun when your dog gets to play on the mini-agility course!
