Welcome to the wonderful world of puppy ownership!
At SitDropStay Puppy Training we believe your new puppy requires a mixture of leadership, love, affection, play, stimulation and socialisation, as well as clear boundaries and rules to grow into a happy, calm and balanced adult. Your behaviour over the next few weeks is critical to both your puppy’s development and your relationship with them.
Personalised puppy training gets results
From years of experience, we find that in-home personalised puppy training consistently gives superior results compared to group puppy classes. This is why we now only offer one-on-one training. Puppy school is usually good fun for both of you and does offer your pup valuable exposure to other puppies/people but they should be regarded as a social outlet that is complimentary to, not a substitute for, behavioural and lifestyle training.
We believe puppy school training doesn’t give you adequate knowledge or to teach your dog how to behave at home, learn boundaries or build self-control, respect and trust. Let’s not forget, puppies learn how to be calm and well-mannered from older dogs or their guardians (you), not other puppies.
We are Dog Behaviour Specialists
- You are in control each step of the way and get to decide how YOU want your dog to fit into your lifestyle.
- Personalised consults are tailored to your puppy’s specific personality traits, habits and temperament.
- You will be empowered to become a loving leader and have influence over your dog’s behaviour in all situations.
- You will be shown how to fulfil your dog’s true needs and create a more rewarding relationship with them.
- Our natural methods go beyond the need for harsh corrections, throwing chains, food rewards or clicker training.
- As we come to you, we are able to address your specific needs and issues at their source.
We believe we are Australia’s most effective and progressive puppy training company and look forward to helping you.
Here’s how we work:
We recommend you start building a healthy foundation with a our 2 hour home based private consult. This consult, for an investment of $280 (for puppies 2-6 months), includes lifestyle guidance, basic dog psychology, toilet training, diet, how to correct unwanted behaviour and reward good behaviour, socializing, how to create boundaries/limitations, enforce rules, how to introduce your puppy to other dogs and people, and how to earn your puppy’s trust and respect. This is the foundation of creating a balanced and healthy relationship and helps to raise a calm, balanced, happy and well behaved dog.
We then offer follow-up 1 hour consults as your pup gets older. These follow up consults are each charged at $140, and are for more specific training (walking calmly on lead without pulling/recall/off lead training/greeting guests calmly etc) and any behaviour problems your pup develops with maturity, and are as required, with no specific time frame. We can then target anything you want to improve or address more specifically. This way you can design your own training package as you go.
