Dog Class Referrals – no charge
How to Train a Dog strongly encourages guardians to enrol their dog in a dog class that’s run by someone who has certified qualifications specifically using modern best practice training methods.  Most dogs do not cope with outdated, forceful training methods, so feel free to give us a call or visit PPG Australia for a dog class referral.
