The Dog Social
A chance for friendly dogs and the people who love them to share time together and play.
Please Note: We are unable to run classes due to COVID-19.
When we return to Orange level, our classes will start again
For some dogs and their people spending time with others is the best way to spend a day.
Located in our indoor, 1800 square foot training hall, the Dog Social provides an opportunity for socially seasoned, experienced dogs to hang out and play with other like-minded canines.
Each social is one hour in length and is fully supervised by our resident dog trainer. We welcome dog guardians out to the program, allowing participants to see how their dog behaves in the group, how the group is managed whilst learning about dog behaviour along the way. Dog guardians are an essential part of the program and have the option of participating in the club room with their dogs or watching the group from our viewing gallery.
Dogs’ social preferences vary tremendously and change with time, so we work hard to carefully screen dogs and to place them with others who share their preferred play style and energy levels. Each social is carefully crafted with your dog in mind. Sound good? Join the club!
Suitability assessment: $20.00 + tax
Socials: $10.00 + tax per session or buy a 5 visit pass card for $45.00 + tax
