Dog Training the BCDTS way

Bayside Companion Dog Training School

A dog training school with years of experience and lots of volunteer instructors and dealing with all manner of dog behavioural issues. With a clear focus on making your pet the best companion, we teach you and your family the skills to keep your dog happy and well socialized with other pets and people. We help rehabilitate rescued dogs and give puppies a good start, and are confident that our classes will help strengthen the bond between you and your pet. Most importantly, training sessions are held in an environment much like a visit to the park, ensuring that your dog learns to behave off-leash and in public.

BCDTS is located in Bentleigh, in the South-Eastern suburbs of Melbourne.

Enrolments are taken every Sunday and Thursday. If you need to register please arrive 30 minutes before class. Your puppy will hopefully get some excited energy out of its system before class starts.

We understand that everyone’s situation is different! Hence we provide flexibility in our training so that members can progress in manner that fits their capabilities and commitments. Each of our grades develops core skills, but progress is tailored to the individual and dog.
