Private Consultations

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.



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.

Example Training Programs

Here are some example of Training Programs designed for common issues, to help you know what to expect

LUNA - 9 Month Old Labrador - Loose Lead Walking

Luna pulls very strongly on leash when out on a walk. Luna's mum would like to train her to walk nicely on leash.


3 x 1 hr Coaching Sessions

Total Program Cost: $675.00

MAX - 1.5 Year Old Border Collie - Human Aggression

Max growls and barks at strangers when they enter the house. He nips at visitor's ankles when they move too fast

At your intake consultation we will discuss whether coaching or day training is best suited to your situation. Generally, Coaching (where we train you) is the less expensive option, but requires you to dedicate more time to your dog's training than Day Training (where we train your dog directly).
