Dog Training

The AWL conducts a variety of dog training classes at various sites across Adelaide for people who have a puppy or adult dog.

These classes are suitable for improving the relationship with both new or existing dog(s) in your family.

Qualified instructors help new owners train their puppy or dog using reward-based techniques. We have found that positive reinforcement methods really work and help to build a positive relationship between owner and dog.

We have lots of tips and fast facts to help you look after your pet and live happily with them. Whether it's a barking dog, house training a kitten or general hints for your new puppy, we have that expertise to help you.

See below for more information and to book the various classes that we offer.

We will contact you once you have made your booking alternatively if you have further questions before booking feel free to contact us.

    We can provide you with your own personal private consult.

    Private consults are available for those who feel like their dogs are not ready to join a class environment and for those who would prefer the convenience and focus of one-on-one training for their dogs.

    Private Consults are tailored to suit the individual and their dog's needs and are great for when you feel you need behavioural advice for a specific problem.

    Anyone wishing to do a private consult will need to complete a client profile and a detailed history of their dog before their first private to help the instructor have as much previous history on the dog as possible. This will be emailed to you by our training team once you have made payment.

    As Private consults are tailored to suit the individual and their dog, each private session will be different. Complimentary handouts and notes will be emailed at the end of each private consult.

    Private Consults can be held at either Wingfield, Osborne or Croydon Park
