Have some questions first?

Can't see an answer you're looking for - ask us on our contact page.

My dog already knows some of the skills in Level 1. What course do I start with?

If your dog only knows a few of the skills, we recommend still completing Level 1. As our courses are all one-on-one (that means just you, your dog and the trainer), we can modify lessons to suit your needs. Plus, there's always heaps to learn and room for improvement! However, if you think you are ready for a higher level, we can do a single session to catch you up on anything you missed from previous levels. 

I have two or more dogs I want to sign up.

Lucky you! Additional family dogs can join a course for $100. You will need a responsible human for each dog participating in training. 

Note that we recommend that you make time to train each of your dogs separately so you can give them your full attention. 

Are the courses run in a class with other dogs?

Nope! Our courses are completely one-on-one so we can focus on you and your dog.

My dog has behavioural problems, will the Canine Life Skills course help?

Our Canine Life Skills course is focused on improving communication between you and your dog, and giving you the tools to train your dog the skills they need to be polite, friendly, and well-mannered. The course does not address specific problem behaviours however is aimed more at preventing them. 

For help with problem behaviours, please contact us regarding individual sessions.
