Group Obedience Classes

Our Family Dog Obedience course is our Beginners Level Obedience Training course. It is run as a 7 week block to set you up with solid communication skills and obedience foundations. 

For those keen to keep training after Family Dog Obedience, we have our 45 minute OBEDIENCE & LIFE SKILLS classes available. These classes are run most Saturdays, on a casual basis - pay for the classes you attend (rather than a set block of lessons).

Family Dog Obedience


Our group Family Dog Obedience course is suitable for owners wanting to teach their dog general manners and obedience skills.

If your dog has more complex behaviour issues that need addressing, such as aggression, fear, anxiety or barking, then you will require Private Lessons in your home. Group obedience classes are not designed to resolve behaviour issues. 

The first lesson is an owner-only theory lesson where we teach you:

How to create effective leadership & gain your dog's respect

How to communicate with your dog
How to reduce over-excitability & create a calmer dog
How to address jumping up and biting

In the remaining 6 lessons you will learn:

Leash handling skills
Loose leash walking
Come when called
Place Training
How to be calm around other dogs

When:        Saturdays 7:30am and 9:00am

Where:       Wilsonton State High School

                 275 North Street, Toowoomba

Duration:    7 x 1 hour lessons

Investment:  $265 (inc. GST)

Inclusions:  Weekly training notes & homework checklist to follow

                 Video lesson provided on request, if you miss a class

Age:           From 5 months to adults all ages

As this course often books out quickly, preference will be given to pups that have already attended Puppy Preschool with Think Canine. 

We recommend that you only register for this course, if you are prepared to allow at least 15 minutes/day to complete daily homework during the week.
