Attending your first class.
Before you attend your first class with us here at The Sunshine Coast Dog Obedience Club make sure you have the following:
A dog! (I know, surprising right)
Up to date vaccinations. When you sign up you will be asked to email us a copy of your dog's vaccination certificate, this enables the safety of all the dogs who come to our grounds.
A safe collar and lead that fits your dog perfectly.
Enclosed shoes are a must (Pro Tip: wear gumboots during the wet season!).
Treats! To ensure you get the most out of your training session bring along a bag of your dog's favourite treats that he will work for. As we always say, you wouldn't go to work every day without getting paid, food is your dog's paycheque.
If your dog has a tendency to get over-excited when he goes to new places, try to exercise him before you head to the class, your dog will find it easier to concentrate on classwork once he's got the energy out! Brain games work best for this purpose.
If you have a nervous dog bring him down 10 minutes early and let him settle in and relax before starting classwork.
Wear clothing that you can move freely in and won't distract your dog. Long flowing dresses/skirts, dangling scarves and jewellery tends to distract dogs.
If you have any queries or questions do not hesitate to contact a member of our team to discuss, we will be more than happy to be of assistance.
If you have participated in obedience training with your dog elsewhere and believe you are ready to move up a level, speak to one of our friendly team members. *Please Note- advancing classes is intended for handler's and their dogs who have trained TOGETHER previously.
