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
