Behaviour Consultations

Private Dog Training in Sydney

Want a more individual approach to your training? One-on-one consultations are specifically tailored to help you train your dog to be the best dog they can be!

Individual Behaviour Consultations

APRIL 2024 PROMOTION – complimentary 15 min Zoom call to discuss your dog’s behaviour problem – fill out the questionnaire below and I will be in touch

Why One-On-One Consults?

Some behaviour issues simply cannot be addressed through group classes. One-on-one consultations are specifically tailored to help you train your dog to be the best dog they can be!

Whether you have a shy dog who can’t learn in a classroom situation, a dog with more serious behaviour issues, or if you just prefer a one-on-one learning environment, we can tailor the training to your individual needs and help you achieve your goals.

Plus we understand that sometimes people who have never had a dog before, just need that little bit of extra help.

Is your dog reactive?

How Can We Help?

  • Anxiety: We specialise in working with dogs who suffer from anxiety. If you have the time, patience and commitment that is needed, we can help you both gain the confidence to lead a much more relaxed life together.
  • Leash Reactivity: Do you feel like you can’t leave the house with your dog without feeling apprehensive?  We can help you manage and gradually overcome lead reactivity so you can enjoy your walks together again.
  • Sound Sensitivity: Is your dog reacting to the doorbell or sounds in your apartment building, deliveries and visitors arriving?  If so, we can help you gradually change their emotional responses to our noisy urban environment.
  • Basic Training: From foundational skills and how to apply them, to turning problem behaviours like jumping, pulling on the leash and lack of self-control around, we can show you how to get your dog to work WITH you using positive and fear-free training techniques.
  • Puppy Home-schooling: Some people prefer to home school their puppy because attending classes can be tricky in this busy world… This can be arranged! 

Let us know what is troubling you and your dog and we’ll be happy to help.

Don’t Just Take Our Word For It

We brought our 8-week-old Labrador home to two rescue cats and decided some in-house training would be invaluable to help the transition. Kimbra was recommended, and she fitted us in for an appointment very promptly. Within two one-hour sessions, she taught us to how to teach Marra several different foundational cues. We now have more…

Lucy, Scout & Pepper

Kim has been absolutely fantastic in helping train my puppy. My pup Scout has endless amounts of energy, and before Kim’s help, he would be chasing and terrorizing our two cats. Since Kim’s support, he has settled down and can be near the cats without chasing them and jumping on them. Kim’s naturally supportive, calm…

Gabrielle & Whiskey

Kim has been the most wonderful trainer to work with! She has really helped me with my reactive pup and given me all the tools I need to succeed. My dog (Whiskey) became reactive as a puppy when he was scared by off-leash dogs and I didn’t know what to do until Kim was recommended…

Sukie, Emon & Mumu

Kim rebuild my relationship with my little boy. I have a reactive Border Collie with multiple behavior issues — barks at small dogs, fights with small dogs, pulls the leash, doesn’t listen to me even he understands me. When I realized our relationship was getting worse, I reached out to Kim. During that 1 hour…
