It's not just what we know... it's how much we care!

Canine Good Citizen

We provide dog training courses for Wingham, Taree and the Manning Valley. The Canine Good Citizen course is a 9 week positive motivational course that aims to produce a well behaved, socialised pet and an informed and responsible owner.

The emphasis of this programme is training for “real life” situations – so your training ground is your everyday world.

The programme aims to produce:

  • A dog anyone would like to own
  • A dog that can socialise with other dogs and people
  • An owner capable of understanding and handling a dog and who is fully informed on all aspects of its care, wellbeing and responsible dog ownership

The street walk is a fun and important part of the course

At the end of the 9 week course you could expect your dog to:

  • Walk with you on a loose lead along a crowded street past everyday distractions
  • Sit quietly beside you while you stop to talk to another person both with or without a dog
  • Sit beside you while being petted by a stranger
  • Stand still and tolerate grooming and a visit to a veterinary surgery
  • Stay briefly in a sit or down position
  • Not jump from the car until instructed to do so
  • Come when called and have a lead attached
  • Tolerate being separated from you for short periods

Please contact us if you would like to book for the next course or would like more information.
