Services > Private Training
Private Training is a great option if your schedule does not allow for group classes, or if your dog does not cope well with a class environment.
If you can't make it to regular puppy classes, or have a very shy or excitable puppy, our one-one-one Puppy Basics course is just right for you. We offer a flexible schedule of four sessions where we cover all the basics of Sit, Come when called, Walk on a leash, Toilet training and anything else you need help with!
Training for Life
If you would like your dog to be a well mannered companion, this course is for you. We cover essentials such as a being able to get your dog's attention anywhere, loose leash walking, a really solid Sit, Stay and Recall as well as Leave It, On you Mat and much more. And because we come to you, your dog will learn right where he needs to know his manners most: at your home and local park.
Just Come Back!
Can't let your dog off the leash because he doesn't come back when you call? Find out how to teach a solid recall and start enjoying life off the leash in one of the fabulous off leash parks of Melbourne!
Walk With Me
Walking on a loose leash is one of those essential skills for a happy life with your dog, yet very few people know how to teach their dog how to do it. Find out how to walk in harmony with your dog without the use of force or choke chains.

My dog journey started with Jessie, a small white fluffball bichon-schnauzer cross. She was trained the traditional way by choke collar and verbal praise. After she died, Giro, my Smooth Collie, taught me how wrong this approach was, and introduced me to the fascinating world of positive dog training. Kiara, my whippet, reaped all the benefits, and can't wait for her training all day, every day!
