Tuesday Night Club Classes - 7pm

 

Agility for Beginners 

These classes are designed to teach an introduction to agility and are suitable for complete beginners. They will also provide an opportunity to build on any skills learnt in previous terms for those who have been before. These classes are not ideally suited to dogs that need their own space or those are not comfortable in a high energy environment. If you are unsure about your dog's suitability please ask one of the instructors or pop along (with or without your dog) to have a look and see what you think.

For those that get hooked and wish to progress their agility and/or flygility skills we recommend you contact the Dog Agility Wellington Group http://www.dawg.co.nz/ as they offer comprehensive training and progression in both disciplines.

 

 

 

Introduction to Treibball

Treibball (pronounce Try-ball) is a fun sport for dogs of all ages and sizes. Great fun for you and for any energetic dog who loves to play, to chase or to herd. It’s also easy to play in the backyard. Or great for an older dog or a recovering dog for whom agility and other shenanigans might be a bit too risky, but who still just love having fun.  

In Treibball, the dog drives eight balls (big swiss/fitness balls) to his handler into a goal. The sport has elements of herding trials, canine soccer and obedience. 

Treibball is safe and fun, and an opportunity to continue building your training skills and relationship with your dog. 

In this 4-week course you will learn

  • how to train your dog to perform the movements necessary to herd the balls, following your verbal and hand signals.

  • how to shape behaviours step-by-step and build in distractions

  • how to teach your dog to work well off-leash (if he can’t do so already).

(Well, at least we’ll make a start on learning these skills.)

CADTS’ Tuesday night club classes are open to all members who have paid their activity fee (this is a per annum fee and includes admission to all Tuesday classes throughout the year). We aim to offer a variety of skills to suit our broad membership and we encourage you to come along and give it a go! 

If you have any concerns about suitability then please get in touch with us and ask.

There is usually an opportunity to have a cup of tea and a chat whilst the dogs have an off-lead play after class has finished and packed up for the night.

We look forward to seeing you at Central Allbreeds soon.

 



   

Training

 

 

We believe that we can use our brains rather than our brawn to train our dogs, without pain or force being applied. We know that behavior that is rewarded will be repeated, and therefore we work to set ourselves and our dogs up to succeed so that they can practice getting it right in order to form socially acceptable habits, and learn in a positive manner how to live their lives with us, and us with them.

Classes

 

 

Classes and events currently available can only be booked online.  We also have "Waiting list" classes in Bookwhen so if you don't see a class that suits please sign up for the wait list and then we can contact you when a class becomes available. We run classes on a 10 week term with both weekend and weeknight options.

   

About us

Central Allbreeds Dog Training School recently celebrated fifty years of training and is a fun, family-oriented, friendly club for all dogs (no matter what breed or mix of breeds) and their owners, promoting training with positive reinforcement techniques.

We can help you achieve the best relationship with your dog. Activities we teach include lifestyle (domestic) training, Rally-O, agility, flygility, scenting and anything else that's positive and fun that owners would like to teach their dogs to do.

Dogs need to be over 4 months old and fully vaccinated. Our only other criteria are that the training is fun, and that you both enjoy it!
