Why hire a professional dog trainer?

What are some of the common issues a dog trainer can help with?

Some common dog training techniques your dog trainer may use include:

Alpha-dog training - teaching your dog who their master is

Positive reinforcement - rewarding your dog for good behaviour

What are the benefits of getting a dog trainer in home vs going to a dog training school?

How much does dog training cost?

Dog training costs depend on your location, whether the trainer comes to you, your trainer’s experience, and the type of training. A private dog trainer may charge anywhere from $40-$100 per session, while group dog training classes cost anywhere from $120-$250 for a 6-week program.

What does a dog training class include?

Dog training includes a range of techniques and lessons to help your dog learn obedience, commands, and appropriate behaviours in different environments. While it’s ideal if you start training while your pup is young (approx 2-3 months old), more mature dogs can also benefit from dog training. Here are a few things you can expect from a dog training class or session:

Responding to commands

A dog trainer will help you train your dog to respond to voice commands, like sit, stay, heel, and come (when you call them). Your trainer will help show you how to establish leadership over your dog so that they listen to your commands and do what they’re told. Common techniques used are movement, actions, eye contact, treats, and praise.

Leash obedience

Leash obedience is essential for safe and comfortable dog walking, so you can be motivated and confident to take your dog for regular walks. Your dog trainer will gradually introduce your dog to their collar and leash, using playtime and treats so they associate it with good times. You’ll practice walking around with your dog on a leash in a safe, enclosed area. Once your puppy is comfortable with their leash, you can gradually introduce them to different outside environments.

House training

House training or toilet training your puppy is something you’ll want to start from the moment you bring your dog home, to minimise messes. If you can get a dog trainer near you to train your puppy at home, it’ll make it much easier to house-train your dog. Your dog trainer will give you tips around the best feeding schedules, when and where to take your puppy to do their business, and how to reinforce good house training practices with praise and treats.

Socialising

Your dog trainer can help you socialise your dog - both to animals and people. If they organise dog training classes with a group of pets and owners, it’s a safe environment for your dog to get used to being around other animals and people. If your dog’s having a tough time adjusting, your trainer will step in with some strategies like regular walking in suitable areas, remaining calm, gentle touch, and limiting new social events to once a week.

Bentley is a 4year old German Shepherd. He is a good dog but I do have a few areas I would like him to be better in. This includes being less excitable when people come to the house, being better at walking on the lead, responding better to commands (he seems to have selective hearing) and he is very on-and-off with other dogs (sometimes the interaction is fine, sometimes he tries to dominate them). I'd like to get some more information about your experience training dogs, how the sessions would run, how long the sessions would be (I'm only thinking half hour or maybe up to 1hr sessions) and a quote for these services. Thank you, Jacqui P.s. ignore the date it needs to be done by

I have a 1 year old lab x kelpie. He is a beautiful pup with such a nice nature but in the last few weeks he has been getting aggressive at other dogs over objects like frisbees or tennis balls. He has also started to growl if we(his 2 owners) get close to a new treat he has been given. With his usual dinner and normal treats he gets he does not do this. I would also just like some help training his obedience on top of that. I’m happy to do group sessions or 1on1 because he is great with other dogs apart from this recent issue.

I have an adorable 5 month old Golden Retriever male puppy who is beginning the tricky adolescent stage. Overall he’s a good pup but we have a few behaviours emerging we would like to nip in the bud. He’s completed puppy school but the behaviours relate more to the home environment e.g pull clothes off the line and tackling our older dog during walk time 🤦🏽‍♀️ Positive reinforcement strategies only.
