Training New Pets

Start your pet’s relationship on the right foot as we show you how to acclimate them to your home and establish good habits.

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.

Julie is amazing ! She has a wealth of knowledge and our little Phoenix adores her. She has given us so many practical strategies and has made such a difference in how we approach and help our puppy grow into a calm and happy member of our family. This was Phoenix a few weeks after seeing Julie and we could already see such a difference in his demeanour. She recommended a more healthy diet for our little dog and some great strategies for helping to settle him. She is so patient and so very generous with her knowledge! Couldn’t recommend her enough !!

We recently engaged Julie to provide behavioural training for our cat Mila. We found Mila had become extremely stressed after we relocated. Mila was constantly crying, not eating, hiding and very lethargic. Julie was outstanding from the moment we contacted her. Julie actively listened to our concerns, took the time to meet Mila and assess our environment and then devised highly effective strategies with regular follow up that eventually turned Mila back into the happy and healthy cat we know. Julie’s love and knowledge of animals clearly shows through in everything she does and we cannot thank you enough and look forward to also using your pet sitting services in the future.

I just got my 4months cavoodle puppy full body groomed and I love it so much!! I never thought short hair would suit her but amazing Julie made her beautiful plus so much puppy training tips as my puppy is going through bad play bite. I have also learnt so much from her. Thank you so much and highly recommend Beyond beginners from grooming to behavioural consultation!

Can’t recommend Julie enough! She’s so understanding and full of knowledge. We welcomed a puppy to our family during lockdown when puppy preschool classes were not running. She was able to do one in one sessions with us (when restrictions allowed) and started us and our puppy off on the right foot. Knowing we have an expert to refer back to if we need help is so reassuring! Thank you Julie!

Julie really helped with issues that our German Shepard was having with barking and walking on lead. Tried other dog trainers in Bansktown but nobody could solve these issues until Julie. Couldn't recommend Julie and beyond beginners enough.

Julie was so helpful in helping us train and learn about our new puppy. She is absolutely passionate about her job and has a wealth of experience and knowledge. We learned so much we did 2 puppy preschool courses with her and it really helped us all to adjust to our new family member in the healthiest and happiest way. We are so grateful we found her. Would not hesitate to recommend her.
