Dog Training

Dog training is super important! It means you want a well behaved, polite, and confident dog you can take anywhere. It is also about you, the doggy parent, gaining the confidence and skills you need to help your dog be successful when it meets, plays, and interacts with humans and other dogs. Training is all about creating trust, setting boundaries, and having fun together!

Dog training at The Canine Creche is conducted on site by Smartypantz Dog Training and is led by Lisa Jacobson, a qualified dog trainer, dog instructor and canine therapist, affiliated with the Alpha Canine Professional and Lead the Way.

This dog training is run independently of The Canine Creche. For more information on the methods used, class dates and times or to make a booking please visit SmartyPanz Dog Training or call Lisa from SmartyPantz directly on: Mobile 0408 331 398
