Controlled Walk Course

  • Donnybrook: Social Dog Walk, TBA.
    Free of charge for Dutchfield students. Social dogs only. If your dog is reactive or aggressive, please book a house visit or private lesson first to address these issues. As we walk in bushland, wear some sturdy shoes. Most dogs are off lead to socialise and play. We meet at the school oval of the Donnybrook Primary School on Marmion Street.
  • Controlled Walk course: In the Controlled Walk course we are focussing on training your dog to follow you so you can enjoy your walks together without your dog pulling you! In these 5 weeks, we will work on walking together and tuning into each other, loose lead training techniques, mental barrier vs physical barrier, leash handling skills and rewarding wanted behaviour. Dogs should be aware of where you are and where you are going. We want a dog to be relaxed and comfortable when out on a walk so they are less likely to give you trouble when encountering another dog or reacting to other triggers like traffic, children, skateboards etc. The end goal is to lead your dog through this world, not the other way around!The classes are small, a maximum of 6 dogs in one class, so there is plenty of time for questions and personal attention. The course is 5 lessons of 55 minutes, and costs $ 150.00 (per dog/handler)
