Ticket Information:

  • Kids and Dog Training: $60.00

This 4 day (1 hour a day) training is specifically for children and young adults.

What jobs can your child teach the dog?
- send their dog to bed
- get their dog to bring their favourite toy
- finding Nemo and other strange things
- go through hoops, and jumps
- do some hide and seek recalls
- teach their dog to read

To make the course a bit more interesting, kids will be put into groups for some activities, and some of the activities will earn their group a clue. At the end of the week, their group will have enough clues to solve the mystery.

This 4-day course is great for all kids over 10 (or have the maturity) and must be accompanied by an adult. Your child will train their dog under your supervision and ours. Kids will be put into groups for some activities as it's not just training.

The cost is for one dog, but the whole family can come and participate. Maximum of 4 family members per dog.

Your dog must have some basic knowledge of commands like sit, come and have some self-control. Your dog must be friendly. No unresolved aggression please.

We want your child to succeed with a dog that has been trained or semi-trained by an adult.

If you don't know if your dog is suitable, ask us - email us. We want your family to be successful in the school holidays!
