Doggy Day School Training

Wednesdays and Thursdays.

Doggy Day School currently only operates on Wednesday & Thursday – this is to coincide with the Doggy Day Out schedules for Shepparton and Echuca residents.

Dogs who attend our Doggy Day Out or Doggy Day Care programs (daycare for dogs) are welcome to enrol in our Doggy Day School.

Before the commencement of training, Heather will liaise with you as to your requirements.

A maximum of 10 training sessions usually do the trick (the final two are allotted to a hand-over with the owner and an appointment will be set up to achieve this).

The training consists of a 30-minute intensive session, one-on-one with our trainer. The rest of the time is spent playing and socialising with carefully selected canine buddies. All under the watchful eyes of our staff.

Owners book 10 weeks of daycare along with 10 training sessions.

Some instructional YouTube clips and written reports help owners practice commands at home.

To help you decide your pet’s training requirements, the following will assist.

1. PupperGarten Training

Puppies under 6 months

  • Designed for puppies during their critical developmental learning periods.
  • Establishing foundations in obedience basics and good social skills around people and other dogs.
  • This course aims to assist in developing a well-socialized, confident young dog.
  • Training occurs on a leash, with low distractions, to ensure that your puppy has the best chance at successful learning.

2. Houndations Training

Dogs 6 months+

  • If your dog missed out on PupperGarten, don’t fear, it is never too late to start learning!
  • This program establishes solid foundations in basic obedience and good social manners around people and other dogs.
  • Training occurs mostly on a leash or long line – with low to medium-level distractions. This ensures that your dog has the optimal chance to experience success in learning.

3. GradDog Training

For Houndation Graduates

This program focuses on increasing the performance reliability of the skills established during Houndations. Training concentrates on your dog performing with more distractions, holding drop, sit or place position for longer durations. Increasing recall reliability and loose leash social walking with distractions. Training takes place on and off-leash.

Of course, humans must play and practice with their dog/s at home. Weekly reports (via email or your Propet account) will explain the skills introduced to your dog and how to achieve them yourself. Reports will provide video links to the training techniques and some games.

The aim is to build skills one by one, week by week.
