Dog Training that is more than Sit, Stay, & Wait

We create a positive learning environment which is important for your dog’s success and fun, and shows that learning doesn’t have to be boring or involve repetitive skills.

We use only positive rewards-based training methods to develop your communication with your dog, and improve your dog’s impulse control. Games and exercises help both dogs and their owners make good behaviour fun and strengthen the bond between you and your dog.

We provide a proven method of staged dog training

Training Puppy

Puppy Training

Puppies are taught loose leash walking, basic obedience exercises such a sit, drop and stand. Emphasis on social skills is an important part of this early training. Puppy behaviour is also covered along with any puppy problem behaviour that may arise.

Training Intermediate

Beginner Training

All new members, other than puppies, will start in one of our beginner classes where we cover the basics of training. This includes communication with your dog, fundamental skills and socialisation training.  We use a variety of activities and games to help your dog learn and develop these skills.
There is no set time to spend in our beginner classes. Our Instructors continually assess you and your dog and will move you to the next class when they feel you and your dog would most benefit. And like for our puppies, socialisation is encouraged as part of our dog training program.

Training Advanced

Intermediate/Advanced Training

These classes are set at a variety of levels to accommodate the needs of dogs as they learn and grow. The aims are to develop your dog’s skills in increasingly challenging ways, including working with distractions, recalls, stays and waits, resisting temptations, and working towards your dog being able to work off lead.

The correct training equipment is important. If you require any assistance on which collars and leads are appropriate for you and your dog the MPCDC shop has a range of equipment at competitive prices.

Please be advised that MPC Dog Club does not approve the use of Retractable leads or Choke Collars when attending our Dog Training Classes

What our members say

How the Mornington Peninsula Community Dog Club has changed lives? Hear it from some of our past and newest members.

I have a greyhound in the socialisation class. Teachers are wonderful and caring. They have helped a lot with my anxious greyhound and they have taught me a lot too. The people there are very supportive of each other and their dogs. Highly recommended.

Great classes. Full of fun for me & my dog while I trained my own dog to listen to me.
I have an anxious dog, which we had previously taken to other dog training and I was very nervous about attending classes.
The trainers were amazing and have helped us so much.
