Puppy Preschool can be a wonderful experience for many owners and puppies. However, not all puppies are suited to learning in a group environment, and not everyone has local access to professional puppy trainers. 

 

With this in mind, we have created our ONLINE Puppy Preschool Course, so that anyone, anywhere, can access our training methods and advice! You can work through the program in your own time and from the comfort of your home or backyard.

You will receive over 8 hours of puppy behaviour theory and practical skills demonstrations, covering everything we do in our group Puppy Preschool, plus bonus activities.

Family Dog Obedience

Just like our online Puppy Preschool Course, we’re thrilled to also offer our Family Dog Obedience course in an accessible online format. This course is a holistic guide tailored not just for teaching obedience but also for fostering a lifelong and trusting relationship between you and your canine companion. <br>

 

The goal of our program is to enhance mutual respect and understanding. We kick off with fundamental modules on relationship-building, ensuring that both you and your pet are deeply connected. We understand a bond based on trust and love is essential, so our course holds engagement and focus as primary aspects of dog training. Once we’ve set the foundation, our course delves into the crucial commands and skills like Sit, Down, Stay, Come When Called, Place Training, Loose Leash Walking, as well as behaviour theory covering common issues such as not listening, jumping up, biting and other general manners.

What our clients say...

Just completed the puppy preschool program and I can highly recommended to all new puppy owners. It has definitely given our family the necessary foundations to train our Rottweiler puppy! The trainers were always very supportive and helpful.
I’ve worked with Katrina from Think Canine twice now on two separate dogs I have. I can not praise her high enough for her professionalism, her energy, her understanding and her knowledge. My older boy gets compliments everywhere we go. I put it down to the knowledge, work, tips and tricks Think Canine gave to us. My younger girl even after just one session is already on her way to becoming a fine young Doggo like her older brother. I believe the best investment you can make for your dog is a class with Think Canine.
Our Dane x Mastiff puppy has become quite boisterous. We were so appreciative of Think Canine's thorough and common sense information and after working from this information for a week with our pup, we have already noticed a difference! We would highly recommend the team.
