PRIVATE TRAINING CONSULTATION

Affordable & Flexible

Private training consultations are for behaviourally sound dogs and puppies* that just need some help with basic exercises such as:

  • How to walk on loose lead

  • Sit, drop, stay, responding to name, go to mat

  • How to resolve common problem behaviours such as jumping on visitors or puppy mouthing

  • Recall under minor distractions


Consultations can be booked for 30min, 45min, 60min and are conducted in your home or a suitable outdoor location.

*Please note that behavioural issues require a more in depth behaviour consultation and cannot be resolved within a training consultation. Depending on how many exercises you would like to work on will depend on how much time is allocated and how many consultations may be required.

Cost: 30min = $74, 45min = $84, 60min = $102
+ Travel if more than 15kms from Woori Yallock, 3139.

The initial consultation is 1.5hrs (1x 45min video conferencing + 1x 45min face to face)  and involves a thorough behavioural assessment, discussions to identify any specific behavioural problem/s and a thorough training plan is developed for your specific situation so that you and your dog can achieve your goals. You will be coached through any relevant exercises in order to modify your dog's behaviour. Each consultation includes a behaviour report which is emailed to you after the consultation.

Examples of a behaviour consultation include on lead reactivity or aggression, excessive barking, destructive behaviours, separation distress, anxiety, etc.

WALK & TRAIN

More than just exercise!

A perfect service to provide your dog with not only exercise but the opportunity to teach new behaviours and improve existing problem behaviours such as pulling on lead, recall and general manners.

I come to your home, take your dog for a walk and train them at the same time! You can choose what behaviours you would like me to work on or I will tailor the session to what I think your dog needs.

Cost: 40 minute walk and train = $55, 1hr walk and train = $75
+ Travel if more than 15kms from Woori Yallock, 3139.

Discounts available for regular walks/sessions.

ONLINE PUPPY SCHOOL

Every Wednesday evening - pay as you go!

Many puppy parents have missed out on face to face puppy training due to the pandemic. Online training has many benefits. After all it is the most important period of a pup's life and shapes the adult dog you will have for many years to come.

We will be running a lesson every Wednesday evening for the foreseeable future. Each lesson covers different topics and enrolments are casual meaning you can pay as you go, rather than having to enroll in a whole course! All you have to do is purchase the individual lesson you want to attend.

Each lesson is live, therefore you will have the ability to ask questions.

Cost: $30 per 45minute Zoom lesson
