how can thinkdog help you?

private coaching

If you've got a behaviour problem or training goal and want one on one help, this is for you. Private coaching is the backbone of dog training and it's suitable for dogs of any age, breed or behavioural challenge. Whether you're a first time dog owner with a fresh wee pup, have a challenging adolescent driving you mad or adult with a more severe behaviour issue like separation anxiety, resource guarding, human or dog aggression - start here. 

Designed to support a dog and owner team through designing and implementing a behaviour modification programme and reaching their training goals. 

 

What to expect:

  • A 60-90minute Online Discovery Session to discuss your dog's history, behaviour, lifestyle, previous training and your goals. We'll develop a road map to move forward with, and guide you through implementing some initial homework. 
     

  • Teams sign up to the Platinum membership, providing a combination of fortnightly remote or in-person sessions, along with unlimited text support, video feedback and access to our resource library so you're never left to figure it out on your own. 
     

  • As teams progress and start reaching their goals, you're able to progress to the Gold and Silver membership levels with less frequent sessions & intensive support.

Pricing:

Online Discovery Session - $199

Follow up 1hour coaching sessions - $175 + travel on Platinum or Gold Plans

self-guided training

Over the years we have noticed patterns in the questions and problems dog owners come to us for help with. So we have developed our Bronze Membership for those who want cost effective, up to date information, tutorials, articles, how-tos and whys without the personalised one-on-one guidance. 
 

Updated weekly, this monthly subscription service gives you access to hundreds of dog training & behaviour resources along with access to our exclusive facebook group where you can ask questions, request tutorial videos on specific topics, join our monthly Live Q&A's, and be a part of our supportive, like minded community.

Pricing: $9.99/month Bronze Plan

self-guided training

Let our experienced team do the training for you. Our training walks are designed to take some of the pressure of your busy schedule while fast tracking your training programme.

Have one of our professional trainers collect your dog during the work day and train them for you before dropping them back home, happy and content.

 

Training walks are perfect for dogs that need their days broken up with exercise and enrichment while you're at work or for teams working on training goals that would benefit from a more experienced handler fast-tracking your training progress by getting more training hours into your dog's week.
 

Standing bookings of at least 1 walk per week are necessary to secure your spot. Sessions are 1 hour long, however longer sessions are available if your dog requires transporting to a specific training location.


Pricing:

1x per week = $90/walk

2x per week = $85/walk

3x per week = $80/walk

board & train

Peace of mind and a well behaved dog.

Whether you're short of time to implement the necessary training yourself, or your dog is displaying more challenging behaviour that requires a an experienced handler, or you're off on holiday and want to make the most of their time in care - board & train offers a home away from home boarding school.

Being a small scale home environment, our board and train dogs get the full attention of two experienced trainers as we get to know your dog, develop training goals, and get to work implementing a training plan for you. 

As many behaviours and habits are fuelled by the dogs home environment and the way they're being interacted with and managed - board and train is not a done and dusted fix all where your dog will come back perfect. Rather, all new skills take time and repetition to solidify and training needs to be continued once your pup comes home. However, board & train gives us the opportunity to work intensively with your dog and get much further along the training process than is likely to be achieved at home in the same period of time, as well as giving us the opportunity to really get to know your dog so our recommendations can be more specific.


Pricing: From $160/dog/day

dog trainer mentorship

when we know better, we do better

Dog training is a highly competitive, often political and ever changing industry. The science behind our methods and techniques is growing and developing rapidly as industry leaders discover more ethical and effective ways to resolve behaviour issues. It can be extremely tricky to navigate these waters for new-to-industry trainers as often what we learnt as recently as a year or two ago is no-longer considered best practice and the nuance involved with putting theory into practice can be harder than it seems. 

Our dog trainer mentorship was designed, not to teach non-trainers how to become trainers (there are many incredible courses for that!), but to guide and support new trainers after that initial period of learning, when you're ready to get out there, build your business and start taking on clients. We're there to help you learn how to build a client base, develop and implement behaviour modification plans, communicate effectively with clients, have a sounding board for new and tricky cases, discuss ideas and opinions, and offer a cracking little group of like minded trainers who are all in the same boat.

Applicants need to be hard working, willing to step out of their comfort zone, and have solid sense of humour. We learn a lot, but we have a bucket load of fun doing it.
