Manners-and-Life-Skills-Class1The Pawtential Maleny Manners and Life Skills Class is focused on ensuring you have an understanding of how to teach your dog desired behaviours, how to prevent behavioural problems, how to problem solve and how to put into place a training regime that will maintain the behaviours you have taught your dog.

Learn how to communicate effectively with your dog without the need for force or intimidation. We will show you how to develop a relationship with your dog that is based on fun, love, trust and companionship.

Classes are held at Maleny Showground Saturday and Tuesday mornings. You will commence with private tuition first to prepare you and your dog for the class environment. See the Fee Chart on the right side of this page
