PUPPY TRAINING

In Home Puppy Training Lessons

Having a new puppy is a very exciting time for any family. Once your puppy comes home it can also be an overwhelming and even stressful time for you and your puppy. It can be a big change for you and your puppy – you may have owned a dog before and they were the perfect pet.… But with this pup you are scratching your head wondering what to do? We will teach you, through our unique puppy training program, K9 PuppySmart™, the correct procedures in the handling, training, rearing and socialisation of young puppies from 8 weeks to 20 weeks of age.

  • Introducing your new puppy into your home and family (with other dog or/and kids)
  • Puppy Management – Toilet Training – Feeding – Sleeping
  • Puppy Socialisation in the home and outside
  • Puppy Manners – we all know puppies bite, jump, chew and generally make a mess

Private In Home Puppy Training, our K9 PuppySmart is a great alternative for those who:

  • Have a puppy and are not confident with their pup in a public/group situation.
  • Need to address issues that are home specific such as toilet training, management, separation issues.
  • Like our In Home Dog Training Program because appointments can be made around a busy schedule.
  • Would just like a personal one on one training lesson in a safe, comfortable  environment.

Dog Behaviour Training You Visit Us or In Home

We will call you to have a chat about your situation with your dog.  Don’t worry we have heard and seen it all and believe us your problem is more than likely normal. We will then book your first appointment with you and visit you in your home or somewhere that suits your dog training requirements. We will assess your dog and its environment, and tailor a K9 HomeSmart dog training program specifically designed for you and your dog or dogs. We use training methods that complement the dog’s individual temperament. If you currently us food as a reward with will show you how to transition your training away from food. The training is thorough and takes advantage of different situations and environments that enrich the learning process and build the dog’s all-round stability and proficiency. One of the most important components in any dog training is the use of Canine Psychology. It is extremely important to communicate the correct message to your dog if you require the right response and in turn have your dogs communicate properly with each other, this limits in pack fighting. We build a trust and then develop the dog’s proficiency through exercises that are planned from a confidence base – not a fear base. As a service we also offer specific training programs for your dog that are designed with the dog’s individual temperament and normal environment in mind.

Dog Boarding and Training Courses

This is a great live in dog training program for those dog owners going away or those who simply don’t have the time, knowledge or strength both physically or mentally to embark on their dogs new training program. We can start you and your dog onto the correct path. (we do the hard work for you) After your dog spends the time with us training you will be asked to have a one on one hand back lesson (included) and go through all of what you dog has learnt in their time with us. In this private lesson you will see the changes and this time you will find it easier to interact and continue the steps that we teach you. Dog Training for All needs and All breeds of dog. We do all of the hard training for you while your dog boards with us. We deal with the following.

  • Basic and Advanced obedience
  • Behaviour modification for unwanted bad habits
  • Aggressive behaviour towards people and / or other dogs (Please Note that all aggression based problems will require and assessment prior to acceptance into our BoardSmart Program.)
  • Pulling on the leash – not walking
  • Jumping
  • Being afraid of new people and strange objects
  • Ignoring basic obedience commands
  • Destructive habits like chewing and digging
  • Suffering from severe separation anxiety
  • And just plain old lack of manners! Barking and whining
 

Aggression Assessment and Training

Qualified Professional Dog Trainers   “How to Calm an Aggressive Dog” – “My dog has aggression issues, can you fix them?”     Reactive Dog Training & Dog Aggression Problems

 

This is a one-on-one service, specifically designed to understand your dog’s aggression or reactivity issues and causes, and from that develop a comprehensive dog training program that is individually designed for you and your dog. We will  help you determine why they have become aggressive, turning a once loved pet into a stressful relationship within the family.

Aggression or reactivity in dogs can be a scary thing, we understand that, but it doesn’t have to be a lost cause. We can teach you to calm an aggressive dog, and it doesn’t matter whether that is aggression towards another dog or aggression towards a human. There is always a reason behind the aggressive nature that your dog is displaying and we can help you get on top of your problem and show you how to fix and manage your dog.  For all of your K9 aggression and related behavioural training needs call us today.

Anyone who’s met our boy Koda knows that he’s a handful! Koda is a cheeky GSD, and he had terrible manners, clearly thought being disobedient was a great game, and unfortunately became aggressive towards dogs after he was bitten as a puppy. More Here

We contacted K9 Centre for a behavioural assessment after the council unfairly declared our dog menacing due to an incident where she grabbed (and let go of) a neighbourhood chicken. Through conversation and viewing our dogs behaviour in several situations, Martin was able to give a detailed review and promptly provided an official report. We found his assessment to be very insightful and allowed us to better understand our dogs behaviour and drive. As a result of Martin’s assessment, the council reversed their decision. Martin’s service is absolutely outstanding - he’s incredibly knowledgeable and easily able to translate this. His service is professional yet friendly and very efficient.

raining My German Shepherd THANKYOU to the K9 Centre Toowoomba for training my 3-year-old German Shepherd named Jazz using their K9 Board Smart Training Program. Since we have had Jazz back, he has been a lot calmer in himself and more controllable. We have also noticed that he listens a lot better and obeys commands a than he had in the past. Not only did the K9 Centre Toowoomba train Jazz but also explained the K9 CalmSmart techniques which in turn helped my instruction over my dog to be a lot clearer and understandable in what I was doing. Jazz did have a lot of aggression issues before The K9 Centre Toowoomba worked with him, now we can do a lot more with the Jazz due to the time and development that he received from the training he received and would recommend The K9 Centre to anyone wanting training for their dog in the Toowoomba, Darling Downs area. I am sure that I will be taking more dogs to The K9 Centre in the future. Regards Scott Brookes Toowoomba, Queensland

We can’t thank The K9 Centre Dog Trainers enough for helping us with our dog Phoebe. Prior to training, we couldn’t walk Phoebe on a lead as she pulled too hard. K9 provided us with techniques and methods on how to train with Phoebe, answering our questions and providing direction. After just 2 lessons, it is a pleasure to walk Phoebe on a lead, in fact we don’t even notice she is on the lead. Phoebe also had issues with other dogs, and after a few lessons we have better control of Phoebe when out near other dogs. It is now a highlight of our day to leave home with Phoebe.

Bear is a 11 month old German Shepherd who is very clever and full of life. I was finding him very hard to train and to get to behave on command. After spending a little bit of time researching ways to train my dog I came across the K9 Centre Australia website and found the Boardsmart Program where I could board my dog and have him trained at the same time. Thank you very much I am very appreciative of you.

Just an update on how we are going. Maisy is fantastic! She really is a changed dog. Yesterday we had a break through with the postman, for the first time she never barked or even got off her bed. She sits and stays without the lead and is generally a calmer dog all round. It was a pleasure yesterday to go out in the garden without her trying to attach everything – she just greeted me as I came out and sat there until I asked her to come. Thanks again. Warm regards from a happy dog owner. Barb McDonald

We would just like to say thank you so much for all your help and support with Cleo. As you know we got Cleo from the rspca at nine months old. She had major anxiety issues which stopped her eating and she destroyed the house when I left her. The vet suggested putting her on medication to calm her down but fortunately I listen to you and avoided that route. I followed your advice and within just over a week she is a lot calmer and crate trained. What I love is the fact you are always on the other end of the phone if things are getting hard. Still working with her and I am looking forward to moving onto obedience classes with you in a month. Thanks again. Rebecca and Tim Kenmore.

We just wanted to say thank you again for the massive improvement in Tash's obedience after spending 10 days with you; and of course, the extra time you spent with us teaching us how to continue on with both Tash and Bob. Tash no longer jumps up whenever she sees us, she no longer jumps on my car when I come home, she has gone from a hyperactive attention seeking nuisance (who we did still love) to a calm, attentive 1-year old German Shepherd who is a pleasure to be around. It is now also no longer a chore to take both Bob and Tash for walks, they both heel nicely on the lead instead of trying to have play fights with each other, pulling and tugging and being very annoying. We really appreciate the time and effort you put in with both of them! Thanks again, Nesha and Charles

We are writing to thank you once again for the training you provided to Indi and ourselves as owners. She has drastically changed her ways to our surprise. We had tried so many different trainers and techniques recommended to us and you were our last resort for her as we thought she would never change. She is such a pleasure to walk now and is improving everyday with the simple and short training you showed us. Her aggression to other dogs has decreased and she is no longer an embarrassment to walk in public. Thank you so much. We will without thought recommend you to others. Look forward to following up with you soon.

To the Lovely K9 Centre! Thanks so much for helping me with my dog's ( Nancy ) problems. I was at my wit's end, and in desperation, went searching on the internet one afternoon and came across your site. I saw it was a Brisbane company so thought I would give you a call. After talking with you on the phone,at length, about Nancy's various problems, we decided to go ahead with your programme. Within minutes of you taking control of Nancy, only using the calming technique, she was a calm dog. Wayne and I were totally amazed! She has become a different dog with the simple techniques that you have taught us. All of our friends and relatives are commenting on the difference already. It has also given me the confidence to tackle all of her many problems with hope,that sometime soon, we will have a beautiful dog. I highly recommend this company, for helping anyone with Dog behavioural problems.

Hi, My name is Tania and I am the owner of two Rottweilers, Jake who is now 10 years old and Diego who is 18 months old. I have been training with the K9 Centre since February 2004. I found the services of the K9 Centre through the internet and was quiet impresses with what he had to say when I got in touch with them about training Diego. Jake has had some professional training before and I was interested in trying a different method, it seems that Jake is being re-educated in a sense and he is responding well to The K9 Centres way of dog training. Since Diego has started training we have gone from doing a full range of obedience to protection work and now we are working on tracking, Diego has a long way to go and I have all intentions of staying with the K9 Centre Although I have a small amount of experience in training dogs, The Trainers at the K9 Centre have shown me a whole new path to ways of training my dogs and I am extremely pleased with the results. It is quiet pleasing to find a dog trainer that does not use food as the only way to train dogs

The K9 Centre has been fantastic in assisting us with improving our dog’s behavioural issues. From our first meeting, our trainer was friendly, professional and very knowledgeable about reducing separation anxiety in our 4-year-old cocker spaniel. We started with the basics such as sit and stay through to crate training which has really helped ease the intense separation anxiety our dog had been suffering. We meet our trainer every second week to learn new skills and improve our dog’s behaviour. At each meeting they provided us with techniques and encouragement to take back control. I have no hesitation in recommending The K9 Centre for all your dog training needs; they never caused our dog any distress and was always available to chat on the phone if we had any questions. I had issues with other trainers that we had used and their methods; however our trainer made us feel very comfortable about the way they treated our dog and the techniques that they used.

Thank you so very much for all your help with Buddy, our 3 year old golden Labrador. When I brought Buddy home, he was uncontrollable and I didn’t know where to start with him. He was so lively and unmanageable. Taking him for a walk was a nightmare. After going through your training program the changes have been amazing. For the first time I know how to control him and predict what he is going to do next. That is the best feeling of all. That doesn’t mean he still doesn’t get overexcited, but after going through your program I know how to calm him down without yelling at him, pleading with him or bribing him with treats. He now knows who’s the boss. Thank you for your knowledge and patience with him (and me) and seeing his potential of becoming a well-trained dog. Your kind and firm method produced instant results. I enjoyed going through the program and am so happy that we have a happy and obedient dog who has become a much loved member of the family.

Thank you so much for the training and education you have provided for Rocky and Bailey. It has been a very worthwhile exercise not only for the animals but also for our understanding of the psychology of dogs and in turn identifying behaviours and how to effectively respond to problems. It has and will continue to improve their happiness and well being and that of the household. Once again thank you for the opportunity to share your experience and knowledge around these amazing animals.
