FAQS
 

WHY AREN'T CLASSES ALWAYS OPEN?

The SCDOC is a 100% volunteer-run organisation. Unfortunately, we just do not have the resources to open more frequent intakes. We apologise for this, if we could take on more people we would! When classes are too big, the quality of training is reduced, and we want everyone to get the most out of their training.

CAN MY DOG COME IF HE HAS AGGRESSIVE BEHAVIOUR ISSUES?

We do not take aggressive dogs into our classes. Our beginner's classes are group training sessions that cater to general obedience and good manners, not specific behavioural issues. If you are having problems, please email our Chief Instructor at chiefinstructor@sunshinecoastdogclub.org.au. If your pooch is aggressive, we will recommend you see a

1 on 1 behaviourist or behaviour modification specialist. 

IS MY DOG TOO OLD TO COME TO TRAINING?

No! There is no age limit for dogs who come to train with us! Some Golden Oldies come and train just for fun and exercise!

IS MY DOG TOO YOUNG TO COME TO TRAINING?

Dogs must be 14 weeks and over to come to our obedience classes. For dogs under 14 weeks, we recommend our puppy pre-school, which is our specialised course for pups from 8 to 14 weeks old :)

WHAT'S INCLUDED IN THE PRICE?

Beginners Obedience Course: 1 orientation session + 7 fieldwork lessons + 1 year single membership to the club + once off joining fee.

WHERE ARE THE CLASSES HELD?

We are located in Buderim at the Buderim Sports Complex, past the hockey fields on the right. We have our own private, fully fenced grounds where we hold outdoor, grass field training.

WHAT IF I'VE DONE PRIOR TRAINING ELSEWHERE?

If you have completed a formal obedience course with your current dog at another club or training centre (not including puppy school, beginners is different), please let us know! We might be able to place you in a higher class! Email members@sunshinecoastdogclub.org.au to discuss and organise an assessment with our Chief Instructor.

WHAT HAPPENS ONCE THE COURSE IS OVER?

Once you have finished the 8 weeks you graduate into the next level of obedience training - green class! After graduating beginner's obedience, classes are $7 each for however long you wish to keep training and progressing up the levels! We have four levels of obedience classes plus trial training, so there is still plenty left to learn!
