Planning your training goal
Prioritise your goal/s. Creating a simple training plan will give you a clear direction on what you need to do to achieve your training goals successfully.
Here's an example of a training plan below.
Social Pack Walks
Below are the services I can offer to you and your dog. Any other queries or questions, contact me on my contact page.
IN-HOME DOG CONSULTATION / TRAINING SESSION
This in-home consultation covers obedience issues, behavioural problems, lifestyle challenges, complex skills in the home. Here are some examples to consider:
General obedience, toileting, over excitement, jumping up, barking, mouthing, digging, chewing, separation anxiety, food guarding, fear, reactivity or aggression, awareness & avoidance training and any other issues you may be having.
Phone consultations are available to offer you the benefit from my experience, knowledge and qualifications. It is very convenient if you just like to ask questions about your dog, are time poor or live at a distant location. This service will help you solve and understand what is required before committing to a consultation/training session without having to pay the full-service fee.
Duration: 1 hour
Price: $ 40.00
LOOSE LEASH WALKING
On average, training your dog not to pull on the leash will require 2-3 private lessons with you practicing/committing in between. I come to you to assess your dog and offer the best method that is suitable for you and your dog. The more you practice, the sooner you will be successful.
SOCIAL SKILLS & ETIQUETTE
Teaching your dog social skills & etiquette is about how to meet and behave with other dogs, people, in the home, on walks, in parks, beaches, public areas, etc. I teach you what to look for in a dog's body language, behaviour and what you need to do to keep your dog safe.
SOCIAL TRAINING PACK WALKS - STPW
This service promotes a better quality of life to your lifestyle and help build your dog's confidence in society. It's about getting you and your dog out in society to train, practice and manage your dog in real-life situations with a qualified trainer to help guide you in real-time.
Each STPW starts with safe socialising introductions between all types of dogs teaching you about body language and how to achieve positive outcomes.
The STPW are held in many different environments with a variety of stimulants and surroundings. These can be at parks, beaches, estuaries, boardwalks, foreshores, markets, cafe, etc. Basically places where you would like to take your dog and have full control of your dog.
During the walks, suitable dogs are let off the lead to socialise freely, burn off energy, explore the environment, etc, as well as you practicing recall and release.
Held on weekend mornings, your dog will make new dog friends and you will be with like-minded participants. The best thing is your dog will have lots of fun and so will you!
Before joining, all dogs complete a free behavioral assessment before joining the STPW to bring compatible dogs together.
There are Social Training Pack Walks catered for small dogs, medium to big dogs or a mix of dogs.
Contact Kel if you like to partake in the Social Training Pack Walks.
Duration: approx 1 - 1.5 hours
Price from: * $20.00
Fully insured and supervised by an experienced & accredited behaviour trainer.
RECALL - "COME"
Recall training is one of the most important skills your dog needs to learn, as it can prevent a life-ending situation. Train your dog is going to come back when called and in your control will avoid any serious consequence. From avoiding a fine for not having effective control of your dog, to coming away from unsocial or fearful dogs, children, people or to not run across a busy road are some examples.
For 100% recall contact us for a consult/session.
IS YOUR DOG REACTIVE OR AGGRESSIVE OR BOTH?
If your dog barks, is pulling or lunging on the leash when out walking, this training is for you. Whatever the behaviour this training encompasses focus, loose lead training, leadership, guidance and what to do when faced with whatever triggers your dog.
Go to the Before and After page to see Kel's past results.
AWARENESS AND AVOIDANCE TRAINING
This training is about teaching your dog to be aware, avoid and distance themselves away from hazards, distractions, potential or life-ending attractions and situations. Usually, 2 -3 sessions are required depending on the type of training required.
This training can be anything from
Wild-life - snakes, bobtails, kangaroos, birds, etc.
Livestock - sheep, cattle, horse's, pony's, chickens, etc.
Sea-life - blow-fish/puffer-fish, sea hares, bait, etc.
Parks/ovals - leftover food scraps, bones, baited food, etc.
Domesticated pets - cats, chickens, ducks, aviaries, etc.
Basically, anything you want your dog to be aware of and avoid.
Without giving your dog the opportunity to learn and understand what is ok and is what not ok, the end result will save you the emotional turmoil and financial cost.
Contact me for prices and what you would like your dog to be aware and avoid.
