Fees & Payment

Before you ask ‘how much’…

Ask yourself this: what is the cost of not training?

Every dog deserves to live a long, stable and happy life. And every family deserves to truly enjoy their companion – without experiencing fear or frustration on a daily basis.

That’s why the time and effort you invest into training matters. There’s no such thing as ‘seeing how we go’ or ‘she’ll grow out of it’. Complacency like this inevitably leads to unwelcome stress within the home, premature rehoming, runaways, or worse, dog euthanasia.

In most cases, one consultation is all it takes

Our consultation fee is determined through our discussion with you, depending on what issues you may be experiencing and what your requirements are. 

A 1½ hour consultation lesson at and around your home delivers fast, long-term results and in the majority of cases, it’s all you need to achieve the outcome you’re looking for.

Advice from John

The Dangers of Chicken Necks

I have been warning dog owners for many years now regarding the dangers of chicken necks, however many Breeders and Veterinarians keep advising owners to give them to dogs. The University of Melbourne study warns against feeding dogs raw chicken meat especially chicken necks. It is not hard for a pup to choke. Read more about the dangers of feeding your pup chicken necks here.


Dog Bites and Children

All too often we hear of another child bitten by a family dog. So many people clearly do not understand about the importance of managing family pets around young children. More children are hospitalised in Australia each year resulting from dog bites than car accidents. You may be surprised to know that most dog bite incidents occur within the family home with small children by their family dog.


Children and Dogs

Don’t take it for granted that because your dog is good with your children that he or she will be fine with all children. Don’t be paranoid, however, exercise caution with dogs around children, particularly those under 8 years. Often children don’t realise their strength and can damage internal organs on pups with an over-affectionate cuddle.
