‘We engaged Heather from ‘Teach my Dog’ when we were experiencing problems with our two dogs barking unnecessarily at a new house. Heather provided practical solutions to address not only the barking but a number of other concerns we had with the dogs’ behaviour. We found Heather to be very practical and solutions-focussed while also very understanding and compassionate. Heather has a great understanding of the behaviours of dogs and uses that knowledge to provide coaching to pet owners that reinforce the right behaviours. We are certainly enjoying our dogs more now after the time we have spent with Heather understanding, and addressing, their behaviours!

Individual Training Classes

Personal training for you and your dog gives individualised training to target specific areas or to teach you the skills to train your dog in your home. Our trainer will assess your dog, your goals and the environment to determine the best training method and solution for you and your dog.

Enjoy the benefit of one on one personalised attention in your dog’s home environment to minimise stress and maximise learning for you both.

We will provide you with information on how to create the correct structure for your dog at home and explanations on the reasons for your dog’s behaviour to help you understand why your dog is behaving in the way that it is. Combined with the skills and practical training strategies you will be able to shape the behaviour you want from your dog.

Session durations are 1 ½ to 2 hours for the initial visit, follow up visits can be arranged as needed.
