Real life training in and around your home.
Group dog training classes are great for happy, friendly dogs and offer the best value for money however, for some people the location just doesn’t work or they need flexibility to vary the day and time for each session. So I offer private dog training for clients where I work with them one on one at their home, or out and about nearby to learn with real life distractions. Sometimes the behavior that you would like help with only occurs in the home and therefore One on One training can work in these situations.
If you have a nervous or fearful dog, group classes aren’t suitable and One on One Training is perfect. Here I use science based techniques of desensitisation and counter conditioning to help your dog feel more comfortable in the world. I show you the training and management techniques to practice that will help your dog gradually become more confident and relaxed.
Building your dogs confidence around your area.
Many dogs can display nervousness and anxiety when out in the big wide world. This can be very upsetting for the dog and owner. Through 30 minute Training Walks, using desensitisation and counter conditioning techniques to help your dog feel more comfortable with whatever is creating the anxiety and fear.
These sessions normally follow on from One on One Dog Training and can be done with you, to help you keep practicing the training and management techniques and gain more confidence on walks.
Or, if you don’t have the time, I take your dog for a walk and train them myself to supplement the walks that you are able to do.
Through RSPCA SA's great training program.
I am very proud to be one of the dog trainers that takes group classes for the RSPCA SA.
Group dog training classes are great for dogs that are comfortable around other dogs and people. They also offer the best value for money.
