What Sets Us Apart From the Rest
Training groups are private or 3-5 participants maximum (small group sizes)! Dogs with less or no socialisation are booked for individual/online training. This ensure you and your dog get the most out of all training- whether in a small group or an individual class.
We create individualised plans and produce a write-up for each person and their pet after each training session.
We are able to communicate via most online messenger systems and telephone. Whichever works best for the client.
Although it is possible to do in-person training, many of our services are also offered via web-based methods. This allows for extra security for you and your pet. It's less stressful for fearful dogs and less cost compared to having a trainer visit you in person. Even young puppies, that haven't been vaccinated yet, can begin training right away with online options. It also allows you to learn from the comfort of your own home!
True Expert Care
Your pets training advice is being provided by someone who is a professional in this field!
The trainer at Shaggy Dog has a master's degree in animal welfare & behaviour, a veterinary degree, and current experience (2020 experience) in both these fields. The techniques are positive reinforcement-based and evidence-based science practices. Continued education of at least 35-hour per year is also acquired every year to keep up to date with new research.
You and your pets are learning from the best and receiving the best- ALWAYS!
