School information

We train on Monday nights during school terms on the back oval of Trinity Gardens Primary School, corner Portrush Road and Devitt Avenue Trinity Gardens, South Australia. Please enter from Devitt Avenue towards the rear of the school.

We run Bronze level classes at 7.00pm and all other training level classes at 8.00pm. All classes run for 45 minutes. Our venue is outdoors under lights, with the exception of the dog-free information session in week 1 of Bronze level, which is held in a classroom indoors. Please dress appropriately for the weather conditions.

Equipment

Choke/correction collars, prong collars and electric/shock collars (illegal in South Australia) are not permitted in any CBS class. Dogs should wear a flat collar and/or a harness.

Arrivals and departures

Care must be taken when arriving and leaving classes as we have a number of classes running simultaneously. Some of our dogs may require extra space and may have something yellow on their collar or lead (see the Yellow Dog Project). Please ensure you always ask the guardian before approaching any dog.

School shop

Our school shop has a range of treats, chews, training equipment, and enrichment items available for purchase. We also stock Softouch Concepts Inc front-attach harnesses and can fit your dog with the appropriate size. The shop is open from 6.40pm until 8.15pm on Monday nights. We accept cash and credit card payments.

Vaccinations

Your dog’s current vaccination certificate must be produced to the reception desk on your first night of training. If your dog is holistically vaccinated please bring with you a current copy of the dog’s blood titre levels for inspection.

Dog illness/injury

Dogs suffering from a contagious disease or injury, or who have associated with a dog suffering from a contagious disease, must not be brought to the training grounds until at least two weeks after contact and/or after being cleared by a veterinarian.

Dogs in heat

Female dogs in oestrus (on heat) must not be brought to the training grounds for a period of 21 days after the first sign of season. Please ensure your dog has been bathed before returning to class.

Children in classes

We encourage all members of the family to attend classes. However, children on the training grounds must be directly and closely supervised by a parent and/or guardian. That person is directly and solely responsible for the behaviour and wellbeing of the child or children in their care. Children under the age of 16 years may not handle a dog in class, unless approved by the instructor of that class and with a parent’s approval and presence.
Our instructors have the authority to request any person acting in a manner not conducive to the interests of CBS to leave the grounds.
