Getting To Know Your Pet
Introducing a new pet to your home can take some adjusting for both of you. Our new pet training is designed to help owners and their dogs get to know each other, starting your life together on the right foot by building healthy habits and relationships.
Helping Ease The Transition
Bringing home a new pet can be both exciting and stressful. We can help this transition by giving you tips, techniques and advice on things like:
- How to introduce your pet to your home
- How to introduce your pet to family members and other pets
- Establishing good habits around things like toilet training, jumping up and mouthing
- How to set up safe sleep and play areas
A Personal Service
We are often asked what the difference is between our new pet training and puppy preschool. Puppy preschool is usually limited to the ages of 8-18 weeks and is done in a classroom setting with other dogs. It is great as an introduction to training, and especially good for socialisation skills. Our new pet training, however, is a personal, one-on-one service where we focus completely on you and your dog. We can come to your home and create a personal, customised plan for training your dog that assesses both of your specific needs. New pet training can be done at any time, in fact, if you are the one new to pets and your pet is a little older, this is a great way to learn the ropes of pet ownership.
Working With Rescue Animals
Adopting a rescue animal is a wonderful thing, but often it can involve a lot of hard work. It’s not uncommon for us to meet owners who had the best of intentions but have discovered that bringing home a new rescue animal is much harder than they expected. We are passionate about helping animals and owners learn to live together, and with such a rich history in animal care, study and experience, we have all the tools you both need to make the transition work.
