Welcome to VICDOG, a Melbourne based professional dog training and behaviour problem solving service. We strive to provide you with the ultimate experience in one on one dog training and behaviour modification. We come directly to your home and conduct the session in the convenience of your own environment at a time and day that suits you. In most cases, one session is all it takes to modify the undesirable behaviour in your dog.
At VICDOG we recognise and value the importance of having a harmonious human to dog relationship. There is nothing like the bond between you and your dog when you both share a mutual respect for one another. The best way to develop and maintain this bond is by fairness and consistency in all aspects of your dog’s life. By training your dog, you are enhancing both you and your dog’s quality of life.
Having researched all types of training procedures, VICDOG firmly believes that individual training is the ultimate option producing outstanding results in the fastest time. Undesirable behaviour that occurs in everyday life is unlikely to be corrected in group classes. Private lessons allow for us to individually assess both dog and handler and tailor the session and training techniques to the individual requirements of both. By having our full attention, we can ensure that your dog behaves to your expectations at all times, in the home and in the community. This is why we may train one session in your backyard, and the next at your local park with distractions. We will happily deal with any breed of dog, all sizes and all ages. Remember, it’s never too late to teach an old dog new tricks.
Training should be a fun and rewarding experience for you both. We recognise that all dogs are different and respond to different types of training. Unlike many other dog trainers that claim to use only one method of training, we assess what motivates your dog and use the method most suitable to your dog’s temperament. All of our trainers have been extensively trained in the use of all types of methods and equipment. Let your dog chose the best method to suit the both of you.
