RSPCA Dog Training

RSPCA Dog Training in Perth

Have you just welcomed a puppy into your life? Have an older dog who needs some training to work on their manners? Or do you just want to ensure you’re using the best positive-reinforcement strategies for a happy and well-socialised dog?

RSPCA Dog Training will teach your dog off-leash control, recall, toilet training, and basic dog obedience commands using positive techniques.

In small-group classes catering for puppies (from 8 weeks old) to adults (and their humans, of course!), you’ll walk away understanding exactly how to best communicate with your dog.

  • Puppy Kindy for pups 8-13 weeks old
  • Level 1 for dogs too old for Puppy Kindy but need help with basic manners
  • Level 2 for dogs to learn more complex commands
  • One-on-one classes to address specific needs and behaviours

Best of all, all proceeds from RSPCA dog training classes go towards helping animals in need – so you’ll be making a huge difference to all creatures great and small across WA.

The following information is provided for RSPCA Dog Training and RSPCA Puppy Kindy clients in light of a recent increase in incidences of Parvovirus (Parvo) in the wider Perth metropolitan area.

Symptoms of Parvovirus

Common symptoms of the current outbreak of Parvo include

  • vomiting
  • diarrhoea
  • lethargy
  • loss of appetite.

If your dog is showing any of these signs, contact your vet immediately.


Dog Training and Puppy Kindy classes will continue

RSPCA Dog Training and Puppy Kindy classes will continue to run as scheduled, despite an increase in the number of dogs reported to have contracted Parvo. RSPCA WA Dog Training has always had specific measures in place to ensure dogs are safe and owners are aware of any current health risk.

These measures include:

  1. All dogs attending RSPCA Dog Training must be up-to-date with full vaccinations.
  2. All puppies attending RSPCA Puppy Kindy must have had their first vaccination before attending the first class.
  3. All dogs and puppies must be in good health ahead of each class. If your dog or puppy is showing any indication of being unwell, please do not bring them to class and seek professional medical advice from your vet.
  4. All indoor venues for RSPCA Puppy Kindy are treated with a vet-grade disinfectant to prevent contamination.
  5. If your puppy is not fully vaccinated, you must carry them between your vehicle and the venue to minimise exposure to potential contamination.

If your dog is unwell and you miss a class, please let your trainer know and they will email through the homework assignment for the class(es) that you miss.
