In Home Training

Treat. Play. Love. offers one-on-one pet training in your home. Our qualified trainer will assess your pet in your home, and design a training plan unique to your and your pet.

Seminars

Treat. Play. Love. offers a variety of educational seminars on topics ranging from Canine Body Language to Parrot Behaviour and Training. We can help with educational presentations for students, veterinary teams, training clubs, and more.

In Home Training

In-home training is ideal for busy families, reactive dogs, behaviour problems that occur at home, and for pets that aren’t catered for in a group class such as cats, birds, and pocket pets. We work with all species!

Some of the behavioural problems we work with include basic manners, barking, destructive behaviour, aggression between family pets, separation anxiety, and other fear-related behaviours. We also help people discover their pets potential through reward-based training, getting them ready for group classes, agility or obedience, or trick training.

We offer a range of training packages designed to help you reach your training goals. Given the unique needs of each client and their pet, we recommend you contact us to discuss which package will be most suitable for you.

If you have an enquiry or would like to make a booking, please see the contact page. If you would like to read more about modern reward-based training, please check out our blog to view our latest posts.

Puppy Preschool

To ensure our clients have a positive class experience our intake is limited to strictly 4-5 puppies per class. By keeping classes to a small number, we can ensure that each puppy grows in confidence and skills without feeling overwhelmed or intimidated.

Puppy Preschool is open to puppies from 8-14 weeks of age at the first class. During this time puppies are in their socialisation period, meaning they see the world as a fun and exciting place to learn and explore. We can help them to learn that the world is a great place, by exposing them to new experiences in a safe and enjoyable way.

To participate, all puppies must have had their first vaccination and be kept up to date with their puppy vaccinations throughout the class. For their safety the floors are disinfected prior to class, and we take care to minimise the risk of disease transmission by maintaining a clean facility. If you have any concerns about your puppy’s safety please contact us, we are happy to answer any questions you may have.

Due to the small class sizes, Treat. Play. Love. Puppy Preschool is often booked well in advance. We strongly recommend you secure a place for your new puppy as soon as you bring them home, or better yet, plan ahead and book in advance!

Seminars

We are passionate about providing quality education on a range of animal behaviour topics. We have presented educational seminars on a variety of topics, including Canine Body Language, Reactive Dogs, Barking Problems, Basic Parrot Training, and Parrot Behaviour Problems.

If you work in a veterinary clinic, pet shop, doggy daycare, groomer, or other animal care industry and would like to learn more about the educational seminars we can present to your team, contact us via the web form on the Contact page.
