PET DOG SERVICES
We know that your dogs are your family, and you want the best for them. We take into account your busy schedule and skill level when planning out your training program, making certain that we only set targets you can manage.
Many of our programs take as little as 15 minutes per day.
Pet Dog Obedience is often teaching dogs Life Skills, understanding how to behave in public and stressful situations.
Steve is a Nationally Accredited Canine Behaviour Specialist with thousands of successful cases behind him. His reputation spans Australia, New Zealand and beyond as someone who will take on the cases that no one else wants and get outstanding results!
Behaviour Modification is so much more than dog training, so it needs more than a dog trainer.
No matter how severe or how minor your problem is, you have come to the right place.
DOG SPORTS COACHING
Steve is known for working with the highest drive dogs in many capacities and also generating drive in dogs when most others have given up. Motivation is what can take you from competing to winning.
We can help you with any sport and have clients running winning rounds in Agility, Flyball, Obedience, Schutzhund/IPO, Tracking and other sports.
If you need to know how to learn the basics or if your dog is a top competitor and your looking for that edge, you wont be disappointed.
PUPPIES AND YOUNG DOGS
A puppy is a 12 – 15 year plus commitment, that is longer than a life sentence in some cases.
We don’t believe in getting pups with the intention of re homing if the pup doesn’t turn out the way we want. Pups are a product of environment and genetics and they will turn out to be the product of these two elements.
Everyone says that they have puppy programs, here is a video example of our work…

When a Block is purchased Steve will work with you to decide how often you will need to come and what you will be training. He will listen to your goals and design the sessions so that you will achieve them in the time you have booked.
Sessions can be form 1 – 3 hours and you can purchase Blocks of lessons starting at 4 lessons through to 26 block sessions of either 1, 2 or 3 hours.
