Greyhound class

5 Week Manners Course

Come and join our exclusive “greyhound only” class to learn how to build a stronger bond with your hound and all the tips and tricks of living with these magnificent creatures.

Greyhounds come with a unique set of challenges when starting training so it’s important to learn from someone who knows.

Greyhounds are known as ‘breed snobs’ meaning they often ignore other dogs and feel most comfortable with their own kind. So if you are starting training, our classes are a welcoming and familiar environment for them to learn – surrounded by other greyhounds!

Details:
Course will run for 5 consecutive weeks (no make up lessons if you miss a week)
Start time is 10am
Sunday mornings at Macgregor State High School
Cost $175

What you will learn:

Clear communication
Loose lead walking
Engagement
Confidence building
Drop/Down
Stay/wait
Place
Look
Basics of recall
And more!

There is a limit of 10 spots per class

Once you have completed your 5 weeks you will have an option to continue training in our weekly, casual class.

These classes are for greyhounds of all ages.

    One on one training

     Training in your home or via video

    If you can’t make it to class or have a hound that needs more help in their home environment then we offer one on one training in your home or via video call. You no longer need to be in Brisbane to get the help you need.

    We can tailor training to your needs that suit your hound and their day to day living.

    We can help with:

    • pulling on lead
    • leash reactivity
    • stop counter surfing
    • general anxiety
    • freezing on walks
    • not listening

     

    Welcome home

    Have you recently adopted?

    If you have just adopted your hound or are preparing to adopt and want to make sure you have all the knowledge needed to help them settle we offer a once off ‘Welcome home’ lesson.

    We will provide you with all the information you need to ensure the transition into your home is smooth and as stress free as possible.

    We cover:

    • where they came from and why it’s important to know
    • greyhound behaviour
    • why routine helps
    • nutrition
    • enrichment
    • confidence building
    • appropriate collar/harness options 

    The weclome home pack includes 3 x one hour in home lesson to ensure the information provided is specific to your home. You will also be provided with a handy booklet to refer back to when needed.

     

    Before class Floki was pretty good, but he wasn’t overly focussed on us. During the Greyhound 101 Class we improved our understanding of, and communication with, Flóki. Learning what drives him and how he thinks has been the key to us being better owners and him being better behaved. And being in a class just for greyhounds was helpful, we saw that we were going through the same stuff as everyone else.
    Sue helped us improve our understanding of rescue greyhounds. Knowing where they’ve come from is crucial to having a happy life with them. I’d highly recommend Sue!

    I first did the Movie Star class with Cody and then came back with my new pup Harper to do Young Dogs course!
    Cody is a little anxious and I liked that personal space and respect is emphasised. It made me feel much better with Cody being anxious and with Harper as an impressionable puppy.
    I love that we can go at our own pace and receive personalised advice. I really like that we had our own designated spaces to listen and train, and I like that Sue comes around to check in on us individually
    I loved it when Cody was excited to go back each week! And Harper was still calm at the end of her first class.
    Sue has helped us immensely! From working with my anxious dog in public spaces to understanding how my dogs played together at home. I would highly recommend her.

    We attended Fellowship of the Paws Movie Star Classes and to start Max was not a very enthusiastic learner. He was not excited about training and a his worst Max would turn and walk away.
    Max and I have learnt a lot from the class he now gets excited and loves training, now he is focused and happy to learn new things. And I am now able to make my training fun and exciting.
    I would recommend Fellowship of the Paws to my friends and family.
