We are excited to announce that Sit Happens is now offering group obedience classes.
The first set of classes started at the beginning of June and is running for 7 consecutive weeks. Classes are currently being held at a fenced-in park in Cowan, but in future, the location and the exact times and days will be determined based on demand, so please contact us.

To make sure you get the most value for your money, we have decided to limit class sizes to a MAXIMUM of 6 dogs. Make sure you register early, as we are taking bookings now and classes will fill up quickly.
As the group classes are a new service, for the time being we will only be offering basic obedience. However, if there is an expressed interest in more advanced training classes, those will be offered as well.
BACK TO BASICS
- 7 sessions once a week for 1 hour
- 1st session focuses on theory- leave your doggies at home please!
- Subsequent 6 sessions cover leash manners, Sit, Drop/Down, Stay, Come, and building toy focus to teach the Take it, Leave it, and Out commands
- Cost is $250.00 with a Basic Training Tools Starter Kit included
Our classes are open to dogs of all ages and temperaments. However, they must be at least 4 months old and be up to date on all of their vaccinations. Please bring your dog’s C5 (or equivalent) vaccination certificate to be cited at the first session.
What to Bring:
Remember, the first session is just for the humans, so pooches can stay at home and relax. The rest of the sessions, please bring a water bottle and bowl, yummy treats (preferably nothing crumbly), a favourite toy, a flat collar and lead (no longer than 6 feet), and don’t forget the poop bags.
The primary focus of these classes is to encourage polite, calm behavior in our dogs and develop their willingness to work with us. The goal is to open the lines of communication between each owner and their dog, while utilizing the other dogs as distractions, NOT as playmates. Therefore, in order to create a safe and productive learning environment, dogs MUST be on leash and be kept separated AT ALL TIMES.
