DayCare & Training

Daycare and Training is an excellent option for those of you who struggle to add the task of training your dog into your already busy schedule. In a nutshell, while your dog attends their day at school, we train them and then show you everything they can do and how you can get them to do it too.

Continuation Training - $30 per day (pay for 10 upfront and receive a 10% discount)

Any dog who has completed one of our Daycare & Training Programs is welcome to continue training with us at any point in their life through our Continuation Training Program. Through this program we can continue to focus and build on the training areas outlined in the training program your dog has undertaken. 

Socialisation Training - $35 per day (pay for 10 upfront and receive a 10% discount)

Some dogs may not have a good understanding of how to socialise properly. It could be that they are too rough, a little timid, a bit grumpy ect. For dogs like this, we need to spend additional time showing them how to socialise properly and how to listen to us so we can manage them appropriately. This is where our ''Socialisation Training" comes in. We will give your dog all the tools and skills they need to make appropriate and safe choices throughout the course of the day and teach them how to listen to us when in a stimulating social environment. This form of training will be a must, not an option, for some dogs and will be a condition of their approval to attend daycare with us. 

*** Please note, training outcomes may vary based on the individual age and temperament of your dog. While this style of training means we do the large majority of work, you will still need to follow directions and work with your dog at home to maintain the results of the training.
