Group Obedience Classes

Our Family Dog Obedience course is our Beginners Level Obedience Training course. It is run as a 6 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 NEW Intermediate Obedience Course. 

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 5 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

Cost:        $245 - includes 7 lessons PLUS written training notes

Age:        From 5 months to adults all ages

Requirements:  Current C5 Vaccination

                      No prior learning required

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

Intermediate Obedience

Our Intermediate Obedience Course is a continuation of our Family Dog Obedience. Again we are focusing on obedience required for family dogs and daily life. This is not competition or sport obedience training.
