COURSES

COURSES

Our courses are designed for puppies and dogs that are comfortable in the presence of other dogs and people, and have the capacity to learn. Group classes are small, with a maximum of 6 per class so that personal attention can be given and specific goals worked on. Every person and their puppy/dog are treated independently.

For a dog or puppy exhibiting behaviour at class or home which is not included in the course program; a private consultation or assessment may be required. In some instances a referral to a Vet Behaviourist may be recommended to address the behaviour.

The whole family is encouraged to attend Paw Power courses, however, please ensure that children under the age of 18 years are supervised by an adult at all times.

All dogs/puppies must come to class secured by a flat lead and collar/harness. Check chains are not permitted.

Remember, we are training you to train and manage your puppy/dog.
