How to Register

  1. Buy a membership package
  2. Register for a 'Member class'
    1. Choose the day of the week of the first class you want & click on 'Sign-Up'
    2. Choose the dog & desired date; choose 'yes' to using your credit & 'continue'
    3. To register for an additional class choose 'add more items', otherwise click 'finish'

Please note when you register for a certain class, only the date will show, not the name of the class.

Numbers for all classes are strictly limited to ensure you and your dog receive the attention you deserve.

If you’re unsure if a class environment is suitable for your dog, please contact us

All classes are run using positive reinforcement, non-dominance methods. We focus on teaching your dog how to behave, and aim to make it fun for both you & your dog!

Who are the classes suitable for?

These classes are suitable for graduates of The Dog Project™ Pet Dog Manners, Out & About Workshop, and potentially some Puppy Pre-School graduates (or Pet Dog Manners may be more appropriate).

Dogs who have not attended classes with The Dog Project™ may be suitable if they have a good level of 'basic' obedience (reliably sit in areas of distraction, can perform a selection of other basics such as drop, a short stay).

The classes are NOT suitable for dogs who are reactive to other dogs or people. Please see our Growly Greeters class or in-home consultation options.

Terms & Conditions

  • Membership gives access to The Dog Project™ 'Member classes' only, not any other classes run by The Dog Project™
  • Each package has a valid expiry date
  • Classes may be cancelled, postponed or rescheduled from time to time. In such circumstances every effort will be made to give participants as much notice as possible. The Dog Project™ shall not be responsible for any associated participant costs.
  • 48 hours notice is required for cancellation by a participant of registration for an individual class. If cancellation is within 48 hours the participant forfeits the credit for that class. Credit restoration only possible if another participant can fill the vacated position.
  • For Gold Package holders a 'fair play' rule applies. 48 hours notice is required for cancellation by a participant of registration for an individual class. If cancellation within 48 hours occurs three (3) times, then the Gold membership package may be cancelled.
