Dogdayz have partnered with Harley McKean of Leash Free Hounds to provide our clients with professional training options for puppies, and older dogs.
Harley’s extensive knowledge of different training techniques, and years of experience as a trainer enables him to provide you with a well-rounded, holistic and effective approach to training your dog.
Puppy Training School
At Dogdayz’ puppy training school, your pup will go through 5 weeks of learning and social engagement with other puppies, gaining confidence to thrive in the big, wide world, as well as behaviours and social skills that will be the basis for a productive and happy life.
Our 5 week Puppy School is $150 with payment due on arrival.
Note: all pups must have completed at least 2 rounds of vaccine (including 1 round of Canine Cough) prior to attendance. Any questions—just ask.
“You mean I’m too old for Puppy School!?”
Learn the basics for adult dogs—or take your dog’s skills to the next level with positive dog obedience training. Learn how to work with your dog to:
- Sit, drop and stay.
- Come when called.
- Walk on loose lead.
- Use manners when meeting others.
- Build a close bond of trust and companionship to benefit you and your dog.
Specific Behavioural Consultation
Are you experiencing any unwanted behaviour from your dog?
- Pulling on the lead
Harley can help with proven techniques to manage these behaviours and create a more harmonious environment for your dog and your family.
DOES YOUR DOG FEAR going to the groomers? Fear when being bathed and/or fear of clippers or dryers?
We can help with “Groom Therapy” sessions. Harley and one of our groomers will use safe, gentle handling to re-introduce, reassure and desensitise to all grooming procedures.
Learn basic grooming techniques that you can apply at home too!
Ready to enrol? To provide the best and most relevant guidance, we ask all Training participants to complete all relevant parts of our Enrolment Form.
Also, Assessment Procedure on your dog’s first day will monitor for any unsociable/possessive behaviour in order to address these traits promptly and effectively.
