OUR AIM

Our aim is to help you create happy, resilient, well-adjusted family pets, but most importantly, to build the bond between you so that you can really enjoy life with your dog.
The service we provide intends to set you and your dog for success in the real-world using an evidence-based, holistic, ethical, and positive approach to training and behaviour.

We only use kind, force-free methods, often called reward-based or ‘positive’ dog training.  Positive reinforcement dog training is a modern, science-based approach that uses the principles of behavioural science to teach and communicate with dogs, in order to build lasting bonds based on mutual understanding, trust and respect. 

We simply teach your dog what you would like them to do in a kind and effective way.  There is no need to intimidate or hurt a dog to train them; learning should be fun, not fear-inducing.

PUPPY BASICS

Train in the comfort of your own home and save time 

The first session with a training plan - $100

Subsequent training sessions - $80

With today’s busy life, not everyone has the time to attend scheduled puppy classes. I offer private, one-on-one basic training sessions for you and your dog in your own time, wherever is convenient to you.
In the 60-minute session, I will teach you to train your dog to sit, drop, stay, wait and be calm on your request. This individualised approach will save you time as we can cover more than is possible in a group environment. You will also receive helpful tips on troubleshooting common challenges people face with a new puppy

BEHAVIOUR CONSULTING

Customised, expert advice and training

The first session with a training plan - $130

Subsequent training sessions - 100

My Behaviour Consulting work involves an intimate understanding of your animal’s natural and individual history. Your pet has plenty of potentials to learn and understand cues, and my techniques will lay the foundation for you to build upon. I combine your needs and wants with the natural attributes of your pet.

If you need help with behaviours such as:

  • leash reactivity

  • excessive barking 

  • aggression

  • polite manners

  • recall

  • walking nicely on the lead

  • and more...

This service is for you​

ASSISTANCE ANIMAL TRAINING AND ASSESSMENT


Wooft is an approved assistance animal trainer and assessor

PAT $200

Training session $110

The ACT assistance animal accreditation framework is voluntary and clarifies and promotes the rights of access of persons with a disability who use an assistance animal.
This means that people who rely on an assistance animal to alleviate the effects of a disability will be able to have their assistance animal tested, accredited and registered as an assistance animal and issued with an Accredited Assistance Animal card (ID card) for a period of up to two years.
The ID card will give handlers, businesses and the community confidence that the assistance animal meets standards of behaviour and hygiene acceptable for public places.

WALK AND TRAIN SERVICE

Going back to work, we may not have as much time to spend with our dogs. Don't feel guilty for leaving your dog home alone. Book your dog for a walk and train session, when you need it.

We offer a 30-60 min walking and training service provided by a qualified dog trainer. We pick your dog up, take them for a walk, where your dogs enjoy the time out and about and learn polite lead manners. After the walk, we drop them home safely. 
30 min- $50
60 min- $75

 

TESTIMONIES

 

"There is so many great things I could say, but the pure support, encouragement and help I got was simply incredible. I had so much anxiety surrounding my beautiful dog Darcie passing her public access test, yet, I got nothing but positivity. We got through it with no stress, no pressure and so much professionalism in could not recommend the lovely Izabela enough. Her knowledge and guidance is clear and easy to follow. Definitely a 10/10"
