Beacon Dog Training offers individual sessions for behavioural issues or for owners who would like extra assistance with their obedience training in their own home.
Trainers generally categorise problems as either Obedience issues or Behavioural issues. Obedience problems require the dog to learn a skill – such as sitting on command. Behavioural issues are more complex, and are caused by an emotional state – such as a fearful dog barking at other dogs to keep them away.
Private Training is necessary for problems that may have an emotional component, as by their nature they require a tailored, individual approach.
A one hour session where we get to know you and your dog, set some goals together, and get started designing a training program.
CHOOSE YOUR PLAN
We will present you with various training program options, and help you choose the one that best suits your needs, budget & schedule.
Training programs can include both coaching, where we train you to work with your dog, and day training, where we work directly with your dog.
Phone and email support for the rest of your dog's life. You can get in touch with any questions or concerns, even years after we see you.
Standard consultation hours are between 10:00am and 5:00pm Monday to Thursday. After hours consultations are also available, though these incur a $50.00 fee.
