Helping you build an unshakeable bond with your dog

If your puppy or dog is already past the tiny stage, our RSPCA Foundation Program provides you with skills and understanding to develop and grow together. Nurturing trust in the relationship between you and your dog will provide an unshakeable bond for life and give you a companion you can fully enjoy sharing life with.

As well as teaching the important foundation behaviours which will keep your dog happy at home and safe in the community, you will learn how to successfully communicate with your canine friend, both verbally and when handling.

We will also cover those not so desirable but very natural behaviours at home – including common concerns such as:

  • Mouthing
  • Chewing
  • Jumping up
  • Barking
  • Resource guarding
  • Being destructive
  • Digging

RSPCA’s Foundation Program is a 7-week course

Who: Pups aged over 13 weeks who are fully vaccinated.
Duration: One 50-minute session a week for 7 weeks.
Investment: $175

Please note: you’ll attend your first session without your dog.
