Training in The Southern Highlands
Whether it's general behaviour or etiquette training for dogs of all ages and sizes, great and small,
we can help. Puppy training, enrichment programs, dietary advice, preparing for advanced
competition trialling, noseworks, dog walking, transport, or in-home care - We have it all.
Nothing maintains that foundation you've built, or the relationship and trust you're investing with
your dog more than positive, reward-based training. Training should be happy, consistent,
and most importantly - FUN!
It's training YOU to train YOUR dog. Building that trust and confidence as a team.
Education is key, it's important your dog be well-mannered around people and other dogs.
Much easier said than done - right? We can provide exercises on focus and attention.
We owe it to our four-legged friends to bring out the best in them - both physically and mentally.
What a thrill it is watching them use their brains and make good decisions.
Why not start with Basic Obedience Training?
It provides the foundations for your dog and YOU, as their handler, to evolve as a team.
Building and enhancing that bond is one of the most rewarding and important lessons you can both discover.
Learn about Nutrition and the importance of Enrichment in your dogs daily life.
This is imperative to their overall wellbeing.
Do you work during the day? Dogs love getting out and about (just like us).
We're happy to Visit, Walk and entertain your dog/s from their own home... and it's all guilt-free. We'll play, cuddle, feed and water them, assisting with your busy lives. We love dogs, the very reason for starting our business.
Please note: We do not condone leaving a dog at home alone for more than one day.
Our training philosophy and methodology is always reward-based.
Puppy School Classes:
Socialisation and proofing for life's events.
Includes general Obedience; Sit, Drop, Stand, Stay, Come and the most important... the RECALL.

Good Manners Obedience Classes for all Ages:
Teams who already have some experience of working together and wanting to further hone their skills or refine their teamwork.
Taught by Obedience Instructors. Also for more mature dogs who, for one reason or another, may have not had a great start or much training, such as rescue or rehome - It's a new day and a fresh start to life so let's begin from day one with a fresh outlook.
Teach them that working together as a team provides happy experiences, confidence and fun... And best of all, food or their favourite toy!
Train for loose-leash walking and to stop jumping.
