Our Services & COVID-19

We're taking the COVID-19 pandemic very seriously, and are doing everything we can to minimise the impact on our communities. We will continue to adjust our strategies as the situation evolves.

We are practicing strict distancing of at least 1.5m between people in classes and private consults. All students must bring all their own supplies and equipment. 

In person private training and day training is offered if deemed safe, on a case-by-case basis. Please consider our online/Zoom coaching options, and contact us if you believe in person training is necessary. 

Training is not

rocket science!

We can teach you how!

Day training

Day Training is a private training option for those who are time-poor. Having us do some of the training may skyrocket your results.

 

We start with an initial consult and create a tailored package. Then we train them while you're at work, and teach you to reinforce the behaviours yourself in followup lessons. 
 

Topics may include:

  • Preparing for the arrival of a new dog or puppy

  • Creating polite greetings: no more jumping up!

  • Walking on a loose leash - save your shoulders!

  • Appropriate play with kids

  • Addressing destructive behaviours

  • Preparing your pet for the arrival of a new baby

  • Coming to you even under distraction

  • Anything you like!

**In person privates are currently offered on a case-by-case basis if deemed safe. Contact us to express your interest!
