Ever ask yourself how do I stop my dog barking?

Find out with a one-on-one assessment and follow-up training from qualified RSPCA Dog Trainers.

*** Information for COVID-19 ***

RSPCA Dog Training is offering one-on-one training sessions, within current government guidelines for physical distancing and gatherings, for one-on-one dog training lessons. Lessons will take place at a suitable location convenient to you, and we ask that only 1 person attend with your dog, to maintain the 2-person gathering limit.

Please do not book a one-on-one class if:

  • you have had contact with someone who has tested positive for COVID-19 in the last 14 days
  • you have returned from overseas in the last 14 days
  • you have had contact with anyone who has returned from overseas in the last 14 days
  • you are feeling unwell
  • you or someone in your family are self-isolating 

PAWsonal training sessions for your dog are designed to target common problems with dog behaviour – including reactivity, separation anxiety, excessive barking, or jumping on people. Or you might just want a personal lesson to make sure your dog is the best-behaved member of the family.

Learn ways to communicate with your dog to address unwanted behaviour, and positive techniques to reward good manners.

Classes are held in a location suitable for each common dog problem: we might come to your home to address excessive barking; or meet you in a local park if your dog is reactive to other dogs or people. Times and locations are based on your and your dog’s needs.

Your first personal dog training session will consist of a one-hour assessment followed by the first training session, so you and your dog can start to learn straight away.

  • How much does personal dog training cost? Usually $130 per hour, use Discount Code COVID19 for a 19% discount to $105.30 an hour. Your first lesson will include a short assessment of your dog to identify any behaviour issues that need to be addressed.
  • Where does RSPCA Personal Dog Training happen? A suitable location will be discussed based your dog’s issues. Locations, like local parks, will be selected as long as they can accommodate the government’s guidelines for physical distancing and restrictions on gathering. For puppies who may not be fully vaccinated, one-on-one lessons can be arranged in your backyard, within government guidelines for physical distancing and gatherings.
  • Can any dog attend? If our online puppy-kindy and dog training classes are not suitable, RSPCA Personal dog training sessions are suitable for all dogs over 14 weeks who are up to date with their vaccinations.
