Having a well-trained, properly socialised dog is all kinds of awesome. Whether you want to enjoy a coffee at your local cafe, a few quiet drinks with friends, or dinner with the family – a well-trained dog is included in your lifestyle and gets to go more places, more often.
We offer private training in the following ways:
Private Coaching is our most popular option and is designed to teach you how to train your dog. We come in and work collaboratively with you in the convenience of your own home and around your neighbourhood to create practical, real life training situations specific to the needs and goals of both you and your dog.
Private Coaching is a great choice for the handler and dog team that want a one-on-one approach to get on the right track.
Cost: Starts at $180 for an initial 1.5-hour session. Program options available.
**PLEASE NOTE: Sadly, as at this time, we are not permitted to operate due to current COVID-19 restrictions in Melbourne. At this stage, we plan to commence booking new clients for face-to-face sessions from Dec/Jan pending government directive. You can stay up to date via our social channels.**
Whilst you’re at work, we train your dog in your home and/or neighbourhood and then teach you the necessary skills to maintain the training for the long haul. A typical day-training program consists of 2-3 hourly sessions per week with a handover session at the end of your dogs time with us to show you what your dog has learned.
You are not required to be present except for the handover sessions however you’re not completely ‘hands-off’. You will still need to put some work in if your dog is to listen and behave for you at the end of the program.
This is a fantastic option for our existing clients who want everything that comes with having a well-trained dog but are short on time. Let us do the work and help you train your dog faster and with less stress.
Cost: Programs start at $1,305.
**PLEASE NOTE: Day Training books in advance (currently 3-4 months) and requires a 50% deposit at the time of booking. Due to overwhelming demand, we’re not taking on new clients for this service at this time.**
Pick your program and let us know what kind of option for training you’d like,
eg; Private Coaching + The Super Puppy program — or — Day Training + The J K Growling program.
