Designed to assist you with your dog training/modification needs. We work with you privately in-home or out and about where the problem occurs. Explaining why problems occur and teaching you the solution, we'll design a personal training plan and show you how to implement change. We also offer our popular 'Train Me' options for those who are time poor, lack confidence or simply prefer the bulk of the work be done by the professionals.
After a discussion of your goals and problems, we conduct an initial assessment to determine the problem/s at hand.
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. Ongoing training packs are available for those who require further assistance with complex problems or simply wish to working closely with a trainer to achieve the desired outcome.
Some examples of the behaviours we can assist with:
* Separation anxiety
* Fear responses; skateboards, lawnmower, bikes, traffic, etc
* Guarding resources; food, bed, bones,couch, etc
* Reactive dogs; dogs on lead, people passing by, etc
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 .
Our training packs are aimed at assisting you, through your chosen number of sessions, to teach your dog these life skills. Useful for new puppy parents, to guide you through a training plan or help you overcome the adolescent hurdles, these 45-60 minute sessions will arm you with the skills and knowledge to continually build not only on these foundations, but most importantly your relationship and confidence of you and your dog.
* New puppy/dog set up & introduction
* Destructive behaviours- digging, chewing, etc
* Recall & Leash manners
* Mouthing, biting, growling
* Excessive barking
