Private Dog and Puppy Training

Private Dog and Puppy Training

Due to COVID19 we aren’t running any face to face puppy or dog training, we are however offering all of our current sessions virtually via Zoom. Please get in touch if you’d like to join one of our virtual sessions.

One on One Manners Training

If the group dog training environment is not your thing or you’d rather have Obedient Spaniel Dog On Leash Outdoorsone on one dog training, Manners For Paws Dog Training can provide private dog training sessions with you, your family and your dog either in your own home or at another suitable location on request.

Before we conduct our first training session, you’ll need to book an In Home Consultation first so we can assess yours and your dogs needs.  From there we will discuss the best options for you to help you achieve your training goals.

These sessions are designed to help you teach your dog some manners training so you can take them out and about with you on outings as well as, take you through the basics of dog training such as sit, drop, stay, wait, walking nicely on lead, recalls, leave, give, focus  and mat/place work. We can also throw in a couple of tricks to make it more fun for the humans! (if your dog is reactive on lead such as over excited, lunging, barking or growling etc, please see our Behaviour Consultation link for details)

Cost: $175 for 60 minutes (initial assessment session) – $135 for 60 minutes (follow up sessions)

Three session packages (excluding the initial assessment session) available, please contact Sharon to enquire!

New Puppy Training

To help get your puppy off on the right paw, Manners For Paws Dog Training offer a one IMG_1980 (1)on one puppy training service to help you with all you need to know about raising a socialised, confident and happy puppy.  Aside from covering the basics of training as listed above, we’ll also cover appropriate socialisation for your puppy and help them learn to be wonderful members of society so you can take your pup anywhere with you. We also cover common new puppy issues like toilet/crate training, diet, exercise, health management, jumping, biting, impulse control, environment enrichment and more.

Kind words from some of our lovely clients!

We recently met Sharon from Manners For Paws seeking help with our new Labrador puppy who was taking over our house. We learned so much from Sharon during our puppy consult, things we hadn’t even considered that will help us down the track with training. Sharon was a wealth of knowledge and she shared her advice in a friendly and professional manner. Watching her work with our puppy, showing us various techniques, really helped us see what our new puppy was capable of, more than just digging up our garden ? We loved Sharon’s holistic approach to puppy raising, not just about socialisation and obedience but also feeding, exercise, mental stimulation and setting our puppy up for real life experiences like walking to collect our children from school. We are thrilled with the results so far, we are seeing a calmer puppy already who is learning to wait patiently for things and thanks to her advice, he is tuckered out after his walks and Kong toys. Would highly recommend Sharon for any training needs you may have, she’s fabulous!…..Annabelle
