We are based in Reservoir but offer private training consultations anywhere in Melbourne*
* Please note that locations further away from us may attract an additional fee to cover travel time and costs.
Initial consultation $200
During the initial consultation we will typically discuss your training goals and any behavioural concerns you may have. We will introduce key foundational training concepts alongside practical exercises, which you will then practice during the week. The initial consult is intended as a starting point for further coaching/subsequent sessions. (75 mins)
Follow up consultation $150
During a follow up consultation we will provide feedback on your training practice with a focus on developing your handling techniques and furthering your understanding of training concepts. (1 hour)
Five lesson pack $650
We offer a discounted rate for those booking a pack of five sessions following your initial consultation. A five pack will allow the opportunity to internalise foundational training concepts with weekly feedback on your practice. (5 x 1 hour sessions)
Ten lesson pack $1150
We offer a discounted rate for those booking a pack of ten sessions following your initial consultation. A ten pack will allow the opportunity to internalise foundational training concepts and begin to address more complex issues, with weekly feedback on your practice. (10 x 1 hour sessions)
Group Training Class $25 per dog
The group class is by invitation only following private consultation(s). This is to ensure that clients have the foundational handling skills necessary for a group class environment to be productive for you and your dog. (1 hour)
We are currently not running group classes due to Covid-19, and hope to continue these classes at a later time.
We offer a daycare service for our existing clients who may be away from home for long hours during the day or just want their dog/s to have some enrichment while they are at work. Your dog/s will be well cared for in a home environment and their individual needs will be catered to. (Subject to availability.)
"We came to Scott after we realised our rescue American staffy X had some behavioural issues. Scott was fantastic. Perfect balance in training the dog and making sure we understood and had the skills necessary to follow through. If it wasn't for Scott our puppy would have been returned and possibly euthanized. He is a life saver."
- Nathan with Howard
Although significant progress is often made during our sessions, it is imperative that you the owner/handler continue to practice with the information and activities given to you. Some progress can be very quick but more complex issues may require perseverance and ongoing help.
It is impossible for us to cover all necessary information in one session, and practice with guidance is vital to your improvement as a handler. We offer a discounted rate for those who would like to book a session pack following your initial consultation. Information and activities will be given to you incrementally to build up your skills in handling and communicating with your dog, and to work to a realistic timeline for your dog's development.
