What To Bring to Puppy Playgroup
Here’s everything you need to know.
We are located in the Station Road Creative Precinct and the address is:
281 Station Road
We are located directly opposite the road from World Gym which is on the same street as Yeerongpilly Train Station. Parking is available on-site or on the street.
You MUST provide a current vaccination certificate or titer test certificate on request (If we have not sighted this prior)
It needs to be valid and up to date on the date of your puppy playgroup session. Read this article for more information on why this course is not safe for a puppy that has not completed their vaccine schedule.
If it’s easier for you, you can email me or text me a photo of the proof of vaccination before the first class.
Here’s what you need to know, and what to bring to each free puppy playgroup: –
- Fully enclosed shoes
- A standard Collar and leash (ideally min 2-meters long)
- A large snap lock bag full of your dog’s favourite treats cut into very small pieces
- A mat for your dog
For dog treats, we recommend you use chicken, turkey, ham, devon or cheese cut into really small pieces. No “Smackos”, liver treats or dried biscuits.
Why? Well, rewarding your dog for doing something really awesome with “Smackos”, liver treats or dried biscuits would be like rewarding a child with broccoli for learning the alphabet. These snacks are boring! and not very motivating for your dog.
At FUR GET ME NOT we only use positive reinforcement training techniques. We are not into harming our dogs, trying to dominate them or treating them badly.
DO NOT bring or use retractable leads, ropes or chains. We also do not allow or condone the use of check, choke, prong, electric, citronella or sporn harnesses and collars for your dogs. You will be asked to leave the course if you bring these.
Here is some other important information you need to know: –
- If you are late, even by a few minutes, you will not be permitted to enter the class so, please arrive at least 10 minutes before your class is due to commence.
- Everyone attending our classes, including children and all family members – Must wear enclosed, non-slip shoes at all times.
- Children under the age of 10 years are not permitted in classes.
- All dogs MUST be on a leash at all times and controlled by an adult
Your dog must remain on leash with a well-fitted collar or harness at all times unless instructed otherwise by your trainer.
No dogs are to greet or play with other dogs at any time unless directed by your trainer, please make sure you allow plenty of distance between you and the other participants.
Please be kind to other participants and clean up after your dog whilst on the premises and in classes.
Classes may be delayed at times due to weather or unforeseen circumstances. You will receive a text message with as much notice as possible if a class needs to be cancelled or rescheduled.
We cannot wait to see you at playgroup. Please let us know ASAP if you cannot attend as places are limited and we often have people on standby who wish to participate in sessions, we would hate for our four legged friends to miss out on seeing their fur-buddies.
