Dog Training

By JackW01 - 4 December 2014 7

Hi All,

I know there are previous articles on this topic but does anyone have any suggestions in dog training. I have done some basic obedience classes though looking for some more training. I have a Kelpie so very energetic and would prefer someone who has experience working with the breed. Any suggestions?

What’s Your opinion?

I work for a business called A.B.C.D.O.G, and run one-on-one training sessions. Having worked in an animal shelter for a fair while I have a lot of experience with working breeds (plus I’m a Kelpie owner) If you’re interested have a look at our website abcdog.biz

When we got our puppy in March, I tried to reach out to the Belconnen dogs club and despite multiple attempts received no replies. Instead we went to http://www.paws2play.com.au in Macgregor with great results. Cannot recommend Geraldine enough.

The specialist companies are good for one off or time limited training and will certainly give you tips on managing your pooch. However (unless you have the financial means) they do not provide socialisation and ongoing activities.

there are 4 Dog Obedience clubs in Canberra that offer a range of activities including obedience, agiligy, flyball, dancing with dogs, rally-o and lots more. membership to the clubs is quite affordable with an annual fee somewhere around $200 to access an activity for a year. the training is in group situations and if you go regularly the dogs and owners develop connections. Kelpies and other energetic breeds are certainly a breed that is prominant at the clubs. contact details are available on the Dogs ACT website at the bottom of this page: http://dogsact.org.au/Club_lists.htm

She is fairly social already, it might be worth looking ito the different activities. Thanks for the info 🙂

We have two Kelpies and older one and a puppy. We use a company called Naughty Dog. He helped us out with some issues we had with the older one, and our puppy is currently attending his puppy school. Highly recommended!

Thanks for the advice I will look them up 🙂
