Is your dog struggling with a behaviour challenge that requires a more customised plan?


You’re not alone! 40% of our business is private training. We work with almost all cases. Some we may choose to refer to a trusted colleague who specialises (like a Veterinary Behaviourist, for example) or to a Veterinarian for follow-up to rule out medical causes for concerning behaviour.

We work with dogs of all sizes, ages, and breeds, whether they are from reputable breeders, hobby breeders, rescues, or shelters. We don’t discriminate! 

Typical Cases


  • New rescue dogs
  • Fears, anxieties, and phobias
  • Body handling
  • Resource guarding (possession aggression)

But don't I need in-person or in-home lessons?

You might think that you need a trainer to be there with you, live in the flesh, but I promise you, you don't. Because you're the one living with your dog, you need the coaching to learn strategies for behaviour change. Dog Trainers don't often train dogs; we train people. 

You may think I need to see how your dog reacts in various situations but I promise you that in 90% of cases, I don't. (And if you're in the 10% I will refer you to a trusted colleague.) 

I know what it looks like. If you were having an anaphylactic reaction to nuts, would your Physician need to trigger that response in order to help you? I should hope not. 

This is how it looks when you work with a Professional. It comes from over a decade of working with thousands of dogs. 

I know exactly what you need and how I can help you.


During this worldwide pandemic, we are not comfortable putting our students at risk in a classroom environment or even with a social-distancing home-visit due to our families being higher-risk. Until we have more data on treatment or a vaccine, we feel this is the most responsible choice that we can make. We appreciate your patience, understanding, and support!
