Enroll in the 5 week puppy course to start building the foundations!
No more than 6 pups per class

Puppies have a small window of opportunity to get the most out of learning things about life early on. Dogs learn for their entire lifespan but we can help them adjust to our world easier if we can positively expose them to lots of things between 6-18 weeks of age.
Attend puppy class and learn the basics to positive training. Learn what you should be introducing your puppy to and how to do it properly.
Classes are kept small (no more than 6 puppies per class) so everyone is provided the best opportunity to get the most out of classes.
Basic exercises and positive reinforcement training to start the puppies out on the right paw. Including:
Sit & lie down on cue
Responding to their name & making eye contact
Nose targeting & following body/hand signals
Go to bed/mat
Beginnings of recall
Beginnings of leaving an item
Demonstrations on stays and loose lead walking,
and further discussions on So much more!
Guidance is given to ensure that you know how to advance and progress with your training whilst building a bond and relationship.
Education: toilet training, bite inhibition, and understanding what's normal so we can provide guidance and guardianship. We supervise and discuss appropriate play styles and behaviours, environment enrichment and desexing - Each family is provided a folder of notes to take home along with weekly homework sheets to keep you on track.
Companion Dog Training &
Private One-On-One Training
FIGURING OUT THE WHO'S, WHAT'S AND WHY'S?
Initial consultation is $350 for 2-3 hours.
Follow up appointments are $100 for 1 hour.
Sometimes our dogs (or us) don't work well in a group situation. That's o.k! During a private consultation I can visit you at home and get the full picture of how the dynamics of the household really are.
One-on-one personal appointments can be beneficial to suit with the owners time restraints and availability in the busy lifestyles we lead. It can also be a great way to be able to incorporate the whole family into training and get some solid and achievable 'house rules' in place.
You'll be provided specifically designed behaviour modification programs to help you and your family with the 'troubles' you may be facing and also give you some individual advice and attention that you deserve.
If we can set our dogs up to succeed, they will! Why would they ever want to fail for you on purpose? It's not how they are designed to think... They think you're the best thing ever and all they want to do is make you happy... Some days it can be hard to believe but it's true... Dogs really are a mans/womans best friend.
