  • Puppy Academy: Early Manners & Socialisation

    Puppy Academy focuses on those essential experiences for your puppy in its first few months of life.

    This includes exposure to other puppies, exposure to lots of different people, common and uncommon sounds and all kinds of objects. This helps to build your puppy’s confidence and exposure to new experiences. Here at ABT we also get started on some basic obedience for your puppy. Teaching them manners from an early age helps to prevent rebellion later which builds a good foundation of trust and respect for you and your puppy. We also include lots of information and assistance with all those puppy-joys such as toilet training, mouthing and teething! During classes, puppies will be learning:
    • how to give attention when asked
    • to be calm
    • commands such as sit and drop
    • general manners
    • to come when called
    • leash walking skills
    • Leave, wait and give
    • Mat training
    For more information, please contact us. The first week is run with no puppies present so your instructor can get to know you, and you can learn the theory behind dog training and how dogs learn without the distraction of your puppy.

  • Obedience Level 2

    Advanced dog obedience classes for adult dogs

    This course is designed to refine some of the basic exercises from Level 1. Level 2 will focus on verbal and hand cues, and getting your dog to improve with duration, distance and distractions. We will work on:
    • recalls
    • commands such as settle, mat (go to mat) and stay
    • settling after play
    • walking close in the heel position for passing dogs and people
    We will also teach your dog to follow targets and perform tricks. Dogs will learn to walk and perform at markers, handle and accept restraint, first aid, tolerance to separation and car safety. You will be finding out about how dogs learn and communicate, leadership and trouble-shooting skills.

  • Puppy Academy: Early Manners & Socialisation

    Puppy Academy focuses on those essential experiences for your puppy in its first few months of life.

    This includes exposure to other puppies, exposure to lots of different people, common and uncommon sounds and all kinds of objects. This helps to build your puppy’s confidence and exposure to new experiences. Here at ABT we also get started on some basic obedience for your puppy. Teaching them manners from an early age helps to prevent rebellion later which builds a good foundation of trust and respect for you and your puppy. We also include lots of information and assistance with all those puppy-joys such as toilet training, mouthing and teething! During classes, puppies will be learning:
    • how to give attention when asked
    • to be calm
    • commands such as sit and drop
    • general manners
    • to come when called
    • leash walking skills
    • Leave, wait and give
    • Mat training
    For more information, please contact us. The first week is run with no puppies present so your instructor can get to know you, and you can learn the theory behind dog training and how dogs learn without the distraction of your puppy.

  • Advanced SkillsAdvanced Skills class incorporates different types of classes into one. Assistance Dog Training, Treiball, Doggy Dancing, Trick Dog Training and Scent Detection Training. We can help you to train one of these areas or multiple.

    Advanced/ Assistance Dog Skills 

    Thursday night 8.30pm weekly

    ASSISTANCE DOG TRAINING You may require your dog to help you with your day to day life, especially if you have limitations of your physical abilities. Or you may have a spouse or child that could benefit with the help from your dog. We can train many different Advance Skills, for example opening the door or fridge door, remove your shoes and/or socks, alerting you to a sound or sight, picking up items. TREIBALL Treibball (pronounced try-ball) is an awesome new dog sport and is a fun game for dogs of any size or breed. Dogs learn to run around 8 large exercise balls, pushing the balls one at a time with their nose or shoulder straight into the goal as quickly as possible. Treibball promotes better teamwork and communication between dog and handler as they develop skills in distance work and impulse control. During this class your dog will learn how to play the game, which involves:
    • Out runs
    • Orientation
    • Distance work
    • Nose targets & ball push
    • Impulse control
    • Increase speed
    • Goal scoring
    DOGGY DANCING Doggy Dancing provides handlers and their dogs with an opportunity to demonstrate a skilful, choreographed routine, performed to music.  While having its foundation in obedience heelwork, Doggy Dancing enables the handler to include innovative and creative moves and movement in time to music, giving the illusion of dance.   In Heelwork to Music (HTM), another division of DoggyDancing, which is more closely aligned to obedience heelwork, the dog performs in one or more of the prescribed heelwork positions for at  least 60% of the routine. Doggy Dancing is suitable for handlers of all ages and dogs of all breeds, sizes and ages.  There are no compulsory moves in Doggy Dancing Freestyle and the handler develops the routine to showcase the individual dog’s strengths and can omit moves which the dog finds difficult or which are not yet perfected. In Doggy Dancing, handlers and their dogs develop a terrific rapport and, most of all, have fun doing it!  Spectators also thoroughly enjoy watching the sport and seeing the enjoyment of the dogs and marvelling at their achievements. TRICK DOG TRAINING Novice, Intermediate, Advanced, Expert and Champion levels Trick Training is a great way to develop a closer bond with your dog as you work towards goals and enjoy the fun. It helps to improve communication and understanding with your dog and can also increase your dog's confidence, strength, balance and focus. Throughout the class you will be assessed by Amy Van Dyk to gain points to achieve your NTD (Novice Trick Dog Title), ITD (Intermediate Trick Dog Title), ATD (Advanced Trick Dog Title), ETD (Expert Trick Dog Title) and eventually even Champion Trick Dog Title through 'Do More With Your Dogs USA' (the official sanctioning and organising body for the sport of Dog Tricks). SCENT DETECTION TRAINING The objective is to teach the dogs to discriminate one scent and indicate it. We begin by improving the relationship/communication between dog and owner so it works for our goal of scent detection. Then, we teach the dog the indication behavior that we want it to show us when it detects the target scent. The next step consists of getting the dog acquainted with the target scent (and to indicate it). Finally, we move to discrimination where the dog has to identify the target scent from among others. Finally, we move to blind detection where the target scent is hidden in a location unknown to both dog and owner.

  • AgilityAgility training involves teaching your dog to go through a fun obstacle course. It is great for building confidence in dogs, helping them improve coordination and is an excellent activity for increasing the bond between dog and owner. These are pet dog classes but all equipment is of a high standard if you would like to learn how to do it at a competitive level.   Saturday @ 4.15pm-Agility Class Fortnightly  29th April 13th May 27th May 10th June 24th June 8th July 22nd July ABT Open Day 5th August – NO CLASSES 19th August 2nd September 16th September 30th September   0e15f70b1f30f4d6e0391bf137f8664f agility-weave-poles-6-cost-effective-dog-weaving-poles-1124-p 729849110298B agility jump1   agility_tunnel    , 4:15 pm, 41 Glenroy Street, Athol Park,
