Get off to the right start for a stable & balanced puppy!
In Home Puppy Training consultations are designed to introduce your new puppy into your home and get on the right track for raising a confident and stable dog. We help you with toilet training, settling the pup at night and getting started on the right track with socialisation, confidence building & independence training.
Correct socialisation & independence training during the critical period (first 16 weeks of pup’s life) are so important to build a solid foundation for your pup. If you get this wrong or miss the opportunity, it can mean problems for your pup as an older dog. Independence training is teaching your puppy that he is ok on his own so you need to build a positive association with alone time and not encourage reliance on you. Environmental enrichment forms an important part of this. It’s called the critical period for a reason as it’s critical to get this right.
We can tailor these puppy training sessions to cover the following topics plus any other areas specific to you and your dog.
Toilet training, Mouthing & Jumping, Environmental enrichment - giving the dog mental stimulation, Confidence building and independence training, Introducing your puppy to an existing dog or other animal in the home, Dogs & children - teaching boundaries, Introduction to obedience skills – walking on a loose lead, recall, sit, Diet & nutrition & more….
In Home Puppy training sessions normally take 2 - 2 & 1/2 hours as a guide.
In Home Puppy Training
Tailored puppy training session in your home specifically for you and your puppy.
Getting your puppy off to the right start is serious business!
Puppy pre-school should not just be a social “free for all” for your pup. This approach doesn’t teach them anything about restraint or being calm.
My program is behaviour based and I focus on correct socialisation and independence training to set your pup on the right path to being a confident and stable family dog who is easy to live with.

Would you like to have your dog involved in your wedding service and in your wedding photos?
We will pick your dog up and transport them to the venue, look after them throughout the proceedings and ensure they have fresh water, walks and personal care. We can be as involved in the day as you wish to have your dog a part of your special day.
As qualified trainers we can also assist with any training requirements before your big day and to make sure your dog is comfortable with us throughout. We will do two "meet and greets" prior to your wedding day so your dog is comfortable with us throughout the process.
At the end of the big day we will transport your dog back home, settle them and feed them as required and let you know they are safely returned so you can relax and enjoy your wedding.
We can assist for other occasions too. Let us be your dog's personal chaperone!
We have packages available depending on what you want for your special day or we can tailor a quote to suit special requests.

In Home Dog Training & Behavioural
Does going for a walk with your dog stress you so much you avoid going at all? Is your dog tearing your house apart when you leave him at home alone?
Behavioural problems can be stressful not only for you but also for your dog. Whether it’s over excitement, aggression or just bad manners, we work to provide practical and humane solutions for issues and not just easy fixes.
We do this by assessing your dog to identify the root cause of the problem behaviour and provide you with the skills to work with your dog to modify his behaviour.
Options are flexible as some issues may only require one consultation whereas others may need an ongoing plan. We will work with you to what suits you best.
Phone and email support is provided following a consultation to make sure things stay on track.
