Furry Critters runs positive reward training Puppy School and Advanced Puppy classes in Port Melbourne and Albert Park.• Delta Accredited• Small indoor classes.

Furry Critters is an Accredited Delta dog training school that focuses on positive reward-based behavioural training, providing you with tools to train your dog in basic manners needed in everyday 'real life' situations. The focus of our classes is to ignore unwanted behaviours and to reward desired behaviours. Positive training is easy on the dogs, it increases their desire to learn, it enhances the bond between you and overall it helps them lead happier lives.

Reward based training doesn't require physical strength to achieve results, just consistency and a desire to learn and connect with your dog. In adopting this method and teaching your dog with positive reinforcement, corrections are not used. Very solid skills are achieved in this way. All dogs love learning this way as do their humans. Positive trainers do punish their dogs, but not in the traditional sense of the word. They may withhold a reinforcer, or access to fun, or ignore the dog for a few seconds! If you aren't ignoring your dog for 'bad' behaviour, then you're reinforcing it. If you pay attention to both 'good' and bad' behaviours, then you're confusing the heck out of your dog! Because both are being reinforced, the dog will continue to do both. All our staff are police checked and have first aid training. See our website for more about positive reinforcement training.

Puppy School - Designed for pups 8-16 weeks of age.
A wonderful introduction to life experiences, socialisation and basic requests (sit, drop, stay, recall). At this time in your pup's life it is critical that he become familiar with different sounds, that he gets to learn how to play appropriately and gets to meet a variety of people. What better way to do this than training in a safe environment with pups of a similar age?

All of our classes are small to provide you with the best training possible - ensuring maximum attention to each and every pup and their human companions in a controlled, positive environment - it is all about quality rather than quantity in respect to a pup's happy and confident development. Bookings are essential to hold your place.

Advanced Puppy - Designed for pups 16 weeks - 6 months of age.
The aim of this 6 week program is to provide training for dogs aged sixteen weeks to six months that have completed Puppy School. This class is structured for puppies that have puppy pre-school, or some preliminary training.

This is the next step for pups and owners to ensure you're still on the right track. Your pup will have entered another developmental stage at this time, where you will be facing different issues and discovering different behaviours from your pup. Get the right advice.
