& then came pup.....


Owned a dog before? Just need a new puppy refresher?

If you've owned a dog before then chances are your instincts are right. But, it's been such a long time you just need a reminder & some finessing. 


If that's you, then maybe a session dedicated to the questions you have, along with an understanding of the foundation skills needed to grow your pup (& you) into the best family you can be is the way to go.

Training walks

One of the best things you can do for you and your pup is teach them how to walk properly on a lead. Not only will it make the walk more pleasurable but you'll feel in control and able to manage your dog if you ever come across a challenging situation.


Training walks will teach your dog both loose lead and heeling. 





Duration: 45 minutes


Regular walks   

For those who don't need the training, just the walk.





Duration: 45 minutes 


Regular bookings are welcome. 



*Service areas: Northcote, Thornbury, Fairfield, Alphington, Ivanhoe, Eaglemont, Preston, Heidelberg, Reservoir, Bundoora, Brunswick, Coburg, Fitzroy, Collingwood, Richmond, Carlton, Parkville, North Melbourne, CBD.
