Dog Training Programmes

Thank you Grace!! Thanks to you we were able to train the untrainable little diva. Absolutely worth your weight in gold. The fact it’s not treat based is an even bigger bonus.

Food-Free Training for a Happy & Well Behaved Dog

Do you wish your dog would stop jumping, mouthing, stealing and chewing? Do they drive the neighbours nuts with their barking, harass your cat, or nearly pull your arm out of its socket on walks? Or maybe you just want them to listen to your commands, instead of waiting for the tenth time you say it, or not listening at all?

In our one-on-one, in-home programmes, you’ll learn how to create the well-behaved dog you pictured when you first brought them home. The programmes are tailored to you and your dog, to address the problems you’ve been having, and the things you want to teach.

Because the training is in your own home the whole family can be involved, so everyone is on the same page, without having to bundle everyone into the car and trek across town every weekend. All programmes also include a free Black Dog Wear halter and lead, as well as travel to your home (for Rolleston and the surrounding areas).
