  • 1 May    CANINE NEUROBICS ONLINE COURSE

    Canine = dog. That’s easy.
    Neurobics? Hmm, how about aerobics for the brain?

    There you have it: some brain work for your dog.

    This self-paced online course will be great for all of your dogs, and is now available to all current financial members.

    Contact us for more information.

  • 13 May    INTRODUCTION TO K9 NOSE WORK® ONLINE COURSE

    This is a course suitable for ALL dogs. No obedience necessary. Ideally, it is run in person, so that your and your dog get the much needed advice and guidance from your instructor. But, with our current restrictions, this is not possible.

    This course is being offered as a 6 month self paced online course via Facebook, and is available to current financial members now.

    Contact us for more information.

  • 25 Jun    Bayside City Council Grant Update

    Last year, Bayside City Council awarded Southside Dog School a Community Grant to enable us to purchase some new technology to enhance our students’ and instructors’ learning experiences. With the Grant, we purchased a GoPro video recorder to record some of our classes, and a MacBook to store and share these recordings.

    The main intention is to use this equipment to film some of our classes, to enable our students to see themselves training their dog. This may assist them to understand what they are doing right, or what they need to work on when training, helping them to learn by observation. This equipment is also useful for the instructors to view their classes and to reflect on their training skills.

    The equipment will also be used by the instructors to record training tips and advice, which we will continue to share on social media.

    We have been a little slow and spasmodic in utilising the equipment, for a numbers of reasons: mainly due to lockdown, but also the need to learn how to work the equipment, and having enough volunteers to assist. However, we have finally started to put this equipment to good use.

    Keep an eye out for our roving volunteers recording some action during classes, and feel free to review your videos if you have time.
