Training

Our Private Training Programs have been designed to support and educate both dog and human, in order to help you maximise results during your program and to give you the skills and knowledge to continue your training ongoing.

Private Training Programs are comprised of two session types:

Coaching Session: trainer, dog and handler. Designed to coach you on your handling skills, and progress you and your dog as a team

K9 Training Session: trainer and dog only. Dedicated training time designed to progress your dog’s learning

We understand every dog-human team is different; our programs offer flexibility and we provide individualised support which best meets the needs of you and your dog.

As part of the Good Dog Project, we offer group training classes for all ages. Our classes are designed to be accessible, fun and engaging for every dog-handler team.

Initial Consult

Duration: 1.5hrs

The Initial Consult is the starting point for all clients new to Leading K9. This session is personalised to you and your dog, and takes place at your home.

In this session we will get to know you and your dog, discuss any problem behaviours, define your training goals and begin your training.

Following this session you will receive relevant written information as well as homework exercises to continue progressing your training.

Whilst some issues can be addressed in a single session, dog training most often requires ongoing, consistent work over time. We offer a range of options for dog-handler teams seeking ongoing support, both privately and in a group setting.

Puppy K9

Duration: 4 week and 8 week options

Suitable for puppies aged 8 weeks to 5 months.

Puppyhood is an important time in our dog's development, and the work we do in this period helps set them up for success as adults.

This program is designed to support you and your pup in getting off to the best possible start, and to lay strong foundations in your training.

Group Classes

Leading K9 in partnership with Adaptive K9 present The Good Dog Project. A new breed of group training classes for the Sunshine Coast, QLD.

All of our classes have been designed with the pet dog in mind, building obedience alongside developing social skills, confidence and impulse control in order to create a dog that navigates the world with ease and sees advantage in engaging with their handler.

There are options for dogs of all ages from puppies through to adult dogs, and class sizes are limited to ensure ample time for trainers to assist you.

New classes commencing regularly. Contact us directly or visit our Facebook page for more information on our current roster and upcoming class dates.
