Our Classes - what to expect
Metropolitan Dog Club offers graded class levels teaching obedience and everyday life skills so that your canine companion can be a happy, confident member of your family
Classes start with an introductory session, without your dog. You will be guided through our ground rules, some basic information about dogs, instruction on Commands we use, demonstrations of how you train your dog as well as practical work with your dog in the second week, in the formats we use and also how to progress through our class levels. These sessions are limited to 12 participants and generally are scheduled fortnightly - check the Book Now page for upcoming scheduled dates.
