Off Lead Control

We are continuing to offer training over the Christmas period, other than the public holidays! 
Introduction to off lead control!  

This off lead course offers all the knowledge and techniques you need to get your dog off the lead and under control, while still mastering the basics.  We run this course at Lyall Bay, Upper Hutt, Porirua, Lower Hutt and Karori.

Having a well behaved dog off the lead makes your time with your dog much more pleasurable and rewarding having the confidence it will follow your every command. Then both you and your dog can enjoy your walk and have fun!

In this course you can expect to be given the tools to train your dog off the lead and responding well to your commands.  There is nothing more powerful than having a dog off the lead and under control.  You will be astonished how easy and effective the training is once you understand how you can tap into your dog’s natural instinct to gain control.  It’s liberating!

In this course we accept puppies and dogs who have completed our basic obedience level or the equivalent of elsewhere.  Our venues are indoors so our off lead course takes place regardless of the weather.

We encourage any family member who wants to walk your dog to come to the course, so everybody is on the same page.  Currently only two members of the family can attend the training.

We will provide you with weekly homework, to keep you focused with the training.

We are approved trainers with the Wellington City Council for your responsible dog ownership.  Our quality training program is also recognised by Councils and Vets throughout the Wellington region.

All participants MUST complete all 4 sessions and pass an internal assessment to receive a certificate.

We have two Trainers per class to ensure you get the individual attention and feedback you need to help you through the training

Your trainers are Louise, Glenn, Tamara, Holly & Hope.

All participants will receive weekly homework to follow, to keep up with the training.
