A specialized class for dogs who bark, lunge, and otherwise show aggression when on a lead around other dogs. This science-based class will help you calm your leash reactive dog and gives you the confidence to walk your dog in public again. With a high student-teacher ratio this class is limited to a maximum of four participant dogs and their families, with additional places available for auditors – people who attend as observers and can use the skills to practice at home with their own dogs. An application form is sent following registration to determine the best candidates for this highly successful positively-based class.
Each weekly one-hour session covers a range of useful and positively developed skills under experienced and qualified instructors with veterinary behaviour endorsement and ongoing support.
Thursdays from 7.30-9pm
Venue: 2 Bell Road Brooklyn
Cost: $30 per session
New challenges with outdoor, vehicle and more advanced searches. Ideal for those considering entering Novice Nosework Trials or wanting to extend their training in more “real-life” challenges.
Continue developing your dog’s unique sense of smell and their skills at identifying and alerting on a special odour where-ever it might be placed. Further develop your teamwork and handling skills in this new sport. This course will be specifically for dogs who have already completed a nosework introductory course and understand the basic principles. Dogs with “issues,” or physical disabilities are welcome as each dog works with the handler alone and need not be comfortable in group situations. Nosework-Next Steps is a three-week class ( 90 minutes sessions) and builds the odour recognition work begun in earlier Nosework classes.
The next step in training with your dog. Strengthens control under distraction, adds more complex handling techniques and builds recall and stay reliability. Graduates receive the certificate recognised by Wellington City Council Animal Control Services for RDO registration discount applications. A five week course limited in size for maximum value and individualised attention from our highly experienced instructors. Additional charge applies to non-A.C.E. students who require an assessment and approval before joining us at this level.
