One on one Consultations / Private or In-home Training

Sometimes a class or workshop environment is not appropriate for your dog, or you’re unable to attend a series of lessons due to work/life commitments.

Or perhaps there is a particular problem behaviour you are worried about, or would like resolved.

The Dog Project runs private training to allow us to assess your dog’s behaviour and establish a personal program specifically for you and your dog.  A qualified behaviourist will help you understand why your dog is behaving the way they are, and how you can both head in the direction you want!

Common behaviour issues include:

  • Aggression
  • Anxiety
  • Barking
  • Biting
  • Chewing
  • Digging
  • Hyperactive behaviour
  • Jumping
  • Toilet Training
  • Many more!

You receive a comprehensive survey beforehand, so that the consultation can be as useful as possible to you & your situation, right from the start. You also receive a detailed follow-up report & ongoing support via telephone/email.

We have the following packages for private training consultations:

Private Training - At Your Home

Every package includes two sessions, with further sessions available at a reduced rate ($80/hour). Our standard private consultation package is:

  • 2 x 1 hour sessions (usually held approximately 2 - 3 weeks apart)
  • $250 for the package

The second session allows us to fine-tune techniques tried in the first, or progress skills.

Dates and times are flexible, to find something that is mutually suitable. 

Currently private training is held at your home, or at a training venue in Fairy Meadow. Home visits available between Scarborough - Kiama Downs. Clients outside these areas are welcome to visit a training venue in Fairy Meadow for private training.
