Beginner obedience training is for the slightly older puppy/dog, aged 4½ months onwards, whose handlers wish to teach their dog to be a happy, well behaved canine companion. The Club teaches you to train your dog using an appropriate collar and leash, and positive reinforcement. The handler learns how to train the dog to be calm, disciplined and obedient, all of which engenders security. No dog is too old to learn!

Beginner Obedience Classes commence at 2:00pm on Sundays and handlers should arrive no later than 1:30pm for vetting (dog’s health check).

Handler joining Brush Farm Dog Training Club for the first time should arrive between 12:30pm and 1:30pm without the dog, to register and attend an orientation session at 2:00 pm, you will start training the following week .

  • reminded to have mobile phones turned off during training.

  • 1m (3ft) lead.
  • leather or strap collar
