Welcome to Cheeky Pup! Dog Training
Come Stay Learn Play!
If you want your pup or dog to:
- pay attention to you,
- learn to make great behavioural decisions, and
- start doing these in just a few minutes
enroll in one of our classes or book one-on-one in-home or on-line training now!
Group classes are currently unavailable for pups between 8 and 16 weeks old (click here for more info: Puppy Preschool), and adolescent dogs between 4 and 24 months old (click here: Canine Kindy). Private in-home training is available for all dogs regardless of size, age, or behavioural issues or goals (email email@example.com letting us know a little about your dog/pup and what the problem is).
Based on Australian Government directives we are no longer able to provide group classes for the foreseeable future. However, we are still able to private in-home training for your puppy or dog, so long as we practice physical distancing. Please email Dorothy directly at firstname.lastname@example.org to arrange your appointment. Make sure to include:
- the time and date you would like your appointment to occur
- your dog’s name, age and breed
- your street address
- the top 3 things you would like your dog or puppy to learn – this is to ensure we get the most important things attended to and then we can address other behaviours if time permits
For pups up to 4 months old we limit our training session to 1 hour, at a cost of $150
For dogs over 4 months of age we always start with a 2 hour session at a cost of $280. This is because at 4 months and over we have to spend time getting rid of bad behaviours as well as instilling good ones!
Included in your private training for pups and juvenile dogs (up to 2 years old) is 2 group socialisation sessions to be held once we are allowed to gather in public spaces in groups of 4 or more people.
These future socialisation sessions will give your dog a chance to socialise and potentially play safely with a small group of similar sized and aged dogs under Dorothy’s close supervision. Dorothy will also be then able to identify any problems you’re dog may have and whether or not they require any further interventions (either training, behaviour modification, social distancing, medication from your vet in the most extreme cases).
Please note – when in public or having visitors to your home, either restrict who may pat your dog to those you know are healthy or wash your hands after patting your dog if strangers have been allowed to pat them also (this will ensure any virus that may have been transferred to your dog’s coat will not be transferred to you).
