Underdog Group Dog Obedience Classes

Melbourne Group Dog Training
Group Dog Training by Underdog Training

Located in various Melbourne suburbs, our group training classes run differently to most in that they run in 4 week blocks. This maximizes energy and interest levels in both dog and owner, allowing you to get the very best out of your dog. Most owners complete training blocks 3-4 times per year to maintain their training, depending on the level of obedience you require.

Our Melbourne group training classes are split into two levels: Novice and Elementary – to ensure you are grouped with dogs and owners at a similar level to you. Dogs may complete multiple courses in each level, moving on only once they are ready to do so.

Our class sizes are small so you can always receive a little additional help- whilst all dogs progress at different rates, no-one gets left behind at an Underdog group training class. We have an average of 1 professional instructor for every 8 dogs so you can be sure you will receive the very best instruction and attention.
