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 training now! 

Group classes are currently only available in Blacktown for pups between 8 and 16 weeks old (click here for more info or to enroll: Puppy Preschool). 

Puppy Preschool classes will be offered as follows during winter:
Saturdays:  10am all size pups
Sundays:    10am all size pups.

Canine Kindy classes are now available as follows:
Saturdays:  11am for medium and large breed dogs between 4 months and 18 years old
Sundays:  11am for small breed dogs between 4 months and 2 years old.

Private in-home training for your puppy or dog is also available Tuesdays to Fridays between 11am and 8pm, so long as we practice physical distancing. 

You may also email Dorothy directly at dorothy@cheekypup.com.au 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; and
  • 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 $170.  For dogs over 4 months of age we always start with a 2 hour session at a cost of $320.  This is because at 4 months and over we have to spend time getting rid of bad behaviours as well as instilling good ones! 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). 


  • Mulgoa – Saturdays:  Canine Kindy for medium, large and x-l dogs (4 to 24 months).
  • Baulkham Hills – Saturdays:  Puppy Preschool all breed pups.

We also offer the following types of training at your convenience in your home to the residents of the Western Suburbs of Sydney:

  • puppy and dog training if you can’t make it to one of our classes or have specific behaviours you want your dog to learn,
  • behavioural modification for dogs or pups with serious problems or issues,
  • dogs with disabilities (we do accept deaf and/or blind pups into our preschool classes, but if your dog is older or has another disability we can help you too),
  • assistance dog training,
  • therapy dog training and assessment of therapy dogs and handlers, plus,
  • menacing/dangerous dog assessments for revocation applications.

Private behavioural modification consultations for dogs and puppies, including those with aggression or fear issues, are available at your home.  Available Wednesdays to Fridays between 11am and 8pm.  

All of our training is fun for your dog as well as being ethical and humane. 
We only use reliable and proven scientific methods of training and behaviour modification.
