What can we provide for you?
Private Consults and Behavioural Modification:
Our aim is to provide customized training to suit your requirements. Every Dog and their family have different lifestyles and needs so there is not a single training method that will apply to everybody.
Our initial consult will isolate the top 10 issues that you are currently having with your dog and assess the temprement and current level of training in both the dogs and the handlers.
We then gain understanding of your wants and needs through an interview and build up a profile of the main issues and how to approach each task.
We teach you the very basics, the fundementals of how to communicate clearly with your dog and how to read their signals. From there we build on these skills to the level required to modify any unwanted behaviours.
We offer advice and training on all forms of training equipment so that you can make an educated choice as to what will work for you and your dog.
Our training is based on a balanced format and incorporates both postives and negatives so that there are clear boundaries set and a very fast learning curve is achieved. We find the dogs most favoured form of reward and use this as a powerful training tool. We teach you how to reward your dog appropriatley and how to modify a behaviour that is inappropriate.
This method of training strengthens the bond between dog and handler and provides a wonderful way of incorporating your dog into your lifestyle so that they truely become a beneficial part of the family.
We have small class formats available throughout the North East. Moyhu, Myrtleford, Wangaratta, Bright and Mount Beauty, Beechworth and many more to come!
We run 4 week courses that cater for all breeds and ages. The format is dynamic and fun, everybody having the opportunity to train in their own space and at their own pace.
Small class sizes allow constant interaction with the trainer and plenty of room to move so that you never feel crowded. We start with the very basics and then build on these week by week until you have a sound understanding of handling and training your dog.
Dog awareness programs:
These are custom designed to suit your school or community group, catering for all ages from primary through to Adult. Education is the key to creating a safe environment for both dogs and humans to interact in sensible ways. These programs aim to build an awareness in dog owners as to what is a safe and appropriate management system for their own dogs. We also cover training, socialisation, imprinting and impulse control for both dogs and children.
We will be running a series of Workshops that are available for Training Clubs, Foster Carers, Rescue Groups etc that cover a varied range of topics. We can customise a workshop to suit what you need. Just give me a call and we can work out a format that will suit your needs. Format can be either all classroom based or can be a more hands on approach and involve the participants dogs as well.
