One-On-One Consults

Training in your own home

I will come to your home, clarify any questions I may have to define your training goals and observe your dog. From here you will be given some immediate management strategies and training homework to get started with. After meeting with you I will design a customised programme to meet your training needs. This involves compiling all the information into a report with recommendations. In most cases this first consult will be followed with subsequent visits.

Online Senior Puppy Classes

Train at home with great success 

For your convenience I am also able to provide senior puppy classes online. For many puppies online classes can work better, especially if you have a puppy that is timid OR a puppy that is very excitable. Sometimes having these kinds of puppies in a class environment can be too overwhelming for them. Teaching from your own home can help promote calm and focused results. 

WHAT ABOUT SOCIALISATION? 

It is true that socialisation is an important part of puppy development. But it has to be done the correct way.  Doing online classes won't mean you will miss out! Instead you will be guided through the socialisation process. You will find some more information about puppy socialisation relating to a class environment here and why it isn't suitable for all puppies.

Online classes have the bonus of being recorded so you can refer back and hour long sessions are split into 2 x 30 minute sessions twice a week to help fit in with your busy schedule. You also have access to a private group on the website where you can post videos of your progress, share photos and chat with other members of the class, and find support when you need it.  Even better you can download an app on your phone to help you access these resources easily.

Training Walks

Perfecting Loose Lead Walking

Loose lead walking is often a challenge to get right, and when walking your dog is a struggle it is often left off your to-do list. Let me help you to train your dog to walk on a loose lead so that you can both enjoy going for walks together.

This practical training will start first in your home to get the techniques right, and end with a field trip out in the real world. 

Time and results may vary depending on your dog, and the commitment you put in to training. But I promise you it will be worth it in the end!

3 x Training Walks $150

4 x Training Walks $200

Note: Pre booked training walks must be completed 4 months after first purchased.

Scent Work  Classes

Scent Work is based on the task of working detection dogs,  It is a positive, challenging activity that allows dogs to use their strongest natural sense in a way that is fun and engaging. Because it is an exercise that requires the dog to locate an odour and communicate this to the handler, it also establishes a building of trust between dog and handler. Classes run for 6 weeks starting with scent imprinting of DNZ approved Essential Oil. This activity is suitable for dogs over 6 months old.

Lisa is a registered Scent Work Instructor for Dogs NZ.

6 week program $70

Rapid Recall Classes

Review the rules of recall and stay, focus on plenty of practice.

You've had a little practice with recall, and maybe you have attended a workshop.

BUT you and your dog still need some extra practice and you've decided your dog’s recall is something you need to spend some practical time on. Perhaps your adult doggo simply “forgets” to come when she’s occupied. Or recall is just one of those behaviours that never really took hold. The class environment can be a challenging place for dogs, So it’s a great place to practice getting control of our dogs in the face of distractions—a critical piece of a strong recall.                                                       

This is three 60 minute -session class consisting of two classroom sessions and a fieldtrip or outside practice session.

3 x Rapid Recall sessions - $80

This class is not appropriate for reactive dogs or dogs with aggression issues, as there will be quite a bit of movement as well as off-leash activity.

Suitable for dogs 6 months and over.

Getting Control of Your
Outta Control Pooch

Work on reliable behaviour to use for building impulse control in the face of various real-life distractions.

Do you feel generally a little out of control, of your dog? Or out of control in certain situations. Perhaps you have a social butterfly that loves to say hello but does it by jumping on everyone she meets. Or maybe you have an enthusiastic door dasher. Maybe your dog has trouble remembering what the word “Sit” means. Or perhaps it just feels like everything in the world catches her attention more easily than you can!

In short, if you sometimes feel like you live with a four-legged teenager that acts first and thinks later, Good news: These behaviours are annoying and difficult to deal with, but they generally mean you’ve got a dog that can’t wait to be trained! Smart dogs with lots of energy can do great things when that energy is redirected.
