SATURDAY – TRAINING

PUPPY CLUB COURSE:  

Puppy classes are at 14h00 on Saturdays and occasionally we run an 11h30 class if the demand is unusually high.  However, the pups get split up according to ages so that the youngest are with the youngest and the older ones together in the other group.  You cannot choose which session you would like to attend if we happen to have 2 sessions running.

Fees are paid upfront before you begin your first class and are non-refundable.

R 1270.00 for the 8 week course (you have up until your pup is 6 months old to complete the 8 sessions)

If you have 2 puppies attending simultaneously the cost for the 8 weeks is discounted to R 2,000.00 for 2 pups.

Extra classes over and above the 8 weeks will be charged at R 75.00 per class

Puppy Club INTAKES ARE ON A WEEK-TO-WEEK basis to maximise their learning opportunity. You do not have to wait for the first Saturday of the month for new intakes.  Pups can begin a few days after their second set of inoculations. 

RAW BEGINNER COURSE

Classes are at 14h00 and 15h15.  The new intake session time alternates monthly. As one class progresses after their 8 weeks, the new intakes fill the empty spots. You cannot choose which session you prefer.

New intakes are the first Saturday of every month.   This course is for all our pups that are progressing up from puppy classes and for all new members at our club with dogs that are 6 months or older.  

This course runs for 8 weeks.  After 8 weeks you can either progress to beginner obedience classes or you will be required to leave the club to make space for new intakes.   

Unfortunately you cannot spend longer in this course than 8 weeks as the space is needed for new intakes from our puppy club and new comers to the club. 

Should you leave the club, you would be welcome back for a refresher course should you feel the need for it.

Fees are paid upfront before you begin your first class and are non-refundable.

R 1,200.00 for one dog

R 2,000.00 for 2 dogs training simultaneously (2 people training 2 dogs from the same household) 

OBEDIENCE TRAINING (BEGINNER, INTERMEDIATE AND ADVANCED):

Sessions are on Saturdays at 14h00 and 15h15 (and occasionally at 16h30) – time slots are specified for different classes and you cannot choose which time you prefer.

Fees are paid upfront before you begin your first class and are paid 3 months in advance and are non-refundable.

 R 890.00 every 3 months 

 R 1,600.00 (2 people training 2 dogs from the same household) every 3 months

MANWORK:    

This is protection training and is for invited members only.  If you are interested please indicate your interest to your instructor who will ensure that you work towards the requirements to participate.

NON-TRAINING MEMBERS:

Non-training members are members who have trained their dogs at our Club in the past, but for various reasons can no longer train regularly each Saturday and would still love to participate in events and socials at the club when they are able to.
