For dogs

If you’re finding it difficult to fit our group puppy or dog classes into your schedule, or just prefer one-on-one attention, our private tuition is the ultimate form of training for your dog! It’s a fast, effective way to achieve the best results for your dog and your family at a time and venue that suit you. We will go through the theory of positive reinforcement training and how dogs learn, then each private training session is tailored to cover the behaviours and topics you want to cover because we focus on just you and your dog. It usually takes 1 x 1hr session and 2 x ½ hr sessions to cover all the topics featured in our basic skills classes.

Thinking about becoming a Delta Therapy Dog or Mind Dog?

Brooke and her dog Molly were part of the Delta Therapy Dog program for five years and Brooke has wonderful memories of this time. It is an incredibly worthwhile program. If you are contemplating accreditation as a Therapy Dog or Service Dog, our private training service can prepare you and your dog for the required tests and help your dog achieve the standards required for these strict accreditation processes.

Behaviour Consultations

IMG_0953Duration: First session is 1.5 hours, subsequent sessions last 30 minutes

Suitable for: Owners and dogs, as well as owners and other pets including cats and birds
See below for a guide to travel charges for consultations outside of the northern suburbs of Brisbane.

For dogs

A Behaviour Consultation is different to private training as this service is specifically designed to help you solve any behavioural problems you are having with your dog.

Does your dog constantly jump up, dig holes in your lawn, bark and lunge at other dogs, or chew up your outdoor furniture? Nothing happens in isolation for dogs, behaviour is all interrelated, so there will be very clear reasons why he or she is exhibiting these behaviours and understanding why will give us clear strategies about how to resolve the problem.

The behaviour expert at the Positive Pet Project will come to you for an initial private consultation, meet you and your dog to conduct an assessment, identify your particular behavioural problem/s, and develop a thorough training plan so that you and your dog can achieve your goals and learn how to focus on areas of concern. We’ll show you how to modify your dog’s behaviour and provide you with a written program specifically developed for your situation. Follow up consultations are also available.

For other pets

Problem behaviours are not just restricted to dogs! If you are having a behavioural issue with any animal under your care, The Positive Pet Project will work with you to identify the behaviour problem and develop a plan to help you and your animal to achieve your goals. We’ll show you how to modify your pet’s behaviour and provide you with a written program specifically developed for your situation. Follow up consultations are also available.
