Socialising and Walking Group Training

The objective of the socialising and walking group is to:-

  • Socialise your dog in a safe environment. (One dog per handler and on lead at all times.)
  • Maintain your handling skills.
  • Address “loose” lead walking.
  • Modify anti-social behaviours eg: dog to dog aggression, dog to people aggression, jumping etc
  • Increase your dog’s obedience levels to become reliable in basic commands such as focus, sit, drop, come, stand, heel, leave and give.
  • Teach your dog café etiquette.
    We walk approx. 15 min. to an appropriate area and complete obedience/socialising exercises for 30 min, and then we walk back to our starting point where you can purchase a refreshment.

    It is recommended to bring rewards (eg: food treats/ball/toy etc.), a towel for after beach sessions, a mat and a long lead.

    This is a great opportunity to meet like-minded people who love dogs.
