Training services
Behaviour management

Designed to assist you with your dog training/ modification needs we work with you privately in-home.

After a discussion of your goals and problems, we conduct an initial assessment to determine the problem/s at hand.

Explaining why problems occur and teaching you the solution, we train you to train your dog.

By understanding them a little better and teaching them the skills necessary to be a part of our everyday human lives,

you will soon have a better bond, getting much more enjoyment out of your relationship.

We design a personal training plan, show you how to implement these skills and work closely with you to achieve the desired outcome. 

Some examples of the behaviors we can assist with:​

* Separation anxiety

* Destructive behaviors- digging, chewing, etc

* Excessive barking

* Mouthing, biting, growling

* Fear responses; skateboards, lawnmower, bikes, traffic, etc

* Guarding resources; food, bed, bones,couch, etc

* Reactive dogs; dogs on lead, people passing by, etc

* Submissive/excited urination

* New puppy/dog set up & introduction

* Socialisation

Life skills; obedience

Obedience. Its what we 'teach' our dogs to fit into our human lifestyles. 

We like to think of it as Life Skills. 


The dictionary defines 'Life Skills' as ; Skills necessary or desirable for full participation in everyday life .


​After an initial consultation discussing your training needs, our ongoing training packs aim to assist you with teaching

your dog these life skills, guide you through your training plan and help you overcome some common hurdles.  

Our 45 minute sessions will arm you with the skills and knowledge to continually build not only on these foundations,

but most importantly your relationship and the confidence of you and your dog.
