Training walks (Owner & pup)

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.


We'll teach you a 3 step training method which will give you the skills to achieve a reliable heel walk transitioning into a relaxed loose lead walk. 









Regular walks*   

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





Duration: 45 minutes 


*Service areas: Northcote, Thornbury, Fairfield, Alphington, Preston, Fitzroy.



We are currently fully booked for regular walks. Check back for openings.
