Beginner’s class is not a course. There is no “time limit” on beginner’s class – both dogs and handlers are individuals and they learn at different paces. You will be advised by the instructor when you are ready to be moved up a training level.


Please phone or email Lesley for price per month per dog for group classes!

Private evening training on Tuesdays can be arranged (BY APPOINTMENT) at the P.D.T.C. INDOOR training centre.  Phone Lesley for costs of one-on-one training.

Proof of Vaccination (it is mandatory for dogs in South Africa to be vaccinated against Rabies annually – and they should have a booster 5-in-1 vaccination too. If you are not sure whether your dog’s vaccinations are up to date, please check with your veterinarian. A Rabies Titer Test from Onderstepoort is acceptable!

A Poo bag to clean up after your dog if necessary

Good tasty treats (very small pieces of cooked chicken is an excellent choice)


We do have collars and leashes on sale at the office should you wish to purchase your collar or leash there.

We do offer further training – up to advanced levels.

We do promote positive re-enforcement training and reward based training.

We offer clicker training.

If your dog is too strong for you to handle, and can actually pull you off your feet or make you fall, please advise us before you come to school so that we can assist you upon your arrival at the school.

If you require further information, please contact Lesley on or (011) 763 2107/9
