In-House Training Programmes

Do you want your dog trained whilst coming to Daycare? Book them into our in-house training program to brush up on their manners, learn new skills, and boost their obedience levels!

We have developed exclusive dog training programs where dogs of all breeds and sizes can be trained in-house by our professional dog trainers.

Our In-House Training focusses on the below three core programmes. However, we can also tailor a training programme for your dog's specific needs where required. For all training options, contact our reception team.

Puppy Socialisation Programme

Target Age: 8 to 12 weeks

Price: $450

During our Puppy Socialisation Programme, your puppy spends 30 minutes one-on-one with our in-house trainer once weekly over six weeks. You will receive a weekly report on how they went that day, homework to focus on for the following week, and a direct email address to our trainer to ask any questions you may have throughout the programme. Once your pup completes the 6-week course, they will receive a certificate of completion.

This programme focuses on building your puppy's confidence in the big wide world positively and calmly. 

The benefits of this programme are significant. Your puppy gets to come and socialise with other dogs in a safe, well-managed environment for a day of daycare and gets the bonus of one-on-one socialisation with our trainer. This programme sets your puppy up for success and is an excellent entryway into the training world!

Puppy Socialisation
Puppy Development Programme

Target Age: 12 Weeks to 12 months

Price: $450

The programme has been designed to help your puppy develop the basic skills necessary to grow into a well-mannered, happy dog and focuses on teaching your puppy basic doggie manners, key commands and excellent socialisation skills.

Your training package includes six one-on-one sessions (usually one session a week for six weeks) with one of our experienced puppy trainers, six full-day Puppy daycare sessions, a pamper bath and nail trim and weekly feedback, practice notes, and follow-up for puppy parents. 

During our classes, we use positive dog training techniques where your puppy will be positively encouraged to make good choices while we discourage bad or inappropriate behaviour. This is because we believe good puppy behaviour should be rewarded whenever possible.

Puppy Development Programme
Next Step Development Programme

Target Age: 12 months+ or graduate of Puppy Development Programme

Price: $530

PITC uses fun games-based dog training to shape good behaviour and build a strong relationship between you and your dog. Our Next Steps Development Programme will arm you with a tried and tested arsenal of games that you can plug and play with your doggo anytime, anywhere, and is the perfect next step for your dog's training journey. 

The Next Steps tailored training package, which includes 6 full daycare days, is only $530.00.  We have limited space available, so if you are interested, please contact us for the next available start date to secure your spot.

Next Step Development
"All staff at PITC are amazing and very friendly; we recently put Brody through the Puppy Development training courses on offer, and the wonderful Danielle took him through his paces; she did a fantastic job! After the first 6-week course, we continued and did another 6 weeks, and I noticed a real difference in Brody’s behaviour. The training was well worth it".
