Southern Highlands Positive Reinforcement Dog Training
If you have a puppy ready for puppy socialisation classes, please ring Shona on 0417506006.
For other classes or enquiries, please fill in a form for the appropriate activity.
Basic Training Classes
The critical period for puppy socialisation begins at 6 to 8 weeks of age. If you want a well adjusted dog, start socialisation at 8 weeks.
Older pups (between 4 & 6 months) become much more independent & can start to develop behaviours we don't really want. This is the time to begin puppy obedience training
Positive reinforcement dog training works for adult dogs too. help them reliably follow your instructions to: wait, stay, go to mat, come when called, leave it & stop.
Having your dog pull you along when you are walking takes all the pleasure out of your walk. Often it means that you stop walking your dog altogether. With our positive reinforcement dog training methods we show you how to change your dog from a pulling demon into a dog that is a pleasure to walk.
For people whose dogs have special behaviour problems that are not covered by our other solutions.
Special training classes
Is your dog a real bright spark? Maybe likes getting into mischief? Then enroll in our trick course. Learning tricks helps dogs settle & can overcome naughty behaviours by giving them something more interesting to do.
Agility is a great way to exercise your dog's brain as well as his body. Our agility classes are for fun and therapy only.
If your dog barks & lunges at other dogs or people when on lead, you can help overcome this behaviour by enrolling in our specially designed positive reinforcement course.
One on One training
1. Come (immediately & reliably!) when you call
There is a solution for dogs who come only when they want to. If a reliable recall is important to you & you are prepared to put in consistent work, then you can turn yo9ur dog into one who comes running to you each time you call.
2. Training & assessment of dogs as Companion Animals
If you have a suitable medical certificate, this allows you to take your dog on public transport & in other places where a dog would not be allowed normally.
