Week 4 – Graduation
This is a really fun night where we get to see how far the pups have come with our Graduation class. We go over what we have learnt over the past 4 weeks.
In the months of daylight savings we conduct some of the classes at Dendy Park to give the owners and pups some real life skills on how to behave and stay safe at the park.
