Giving you and your Puppy the best start together.

DogTech® COVID-19 Response

Due to the COVID-19 recommended government restrictions imposed and the importance
of taking up this fight with COVID-19 in our society, currently, we’re only accepting
in-home one-on-one training bookings.

Our in-centre and puppy school training sessions are on hold. We apologise for any inconvenience
this may be causing and appreciate your understanding.

Dog Training With A Behaviour Specialist

We’ve been working with dogs and their families for over 25 years, perfecting a ‘whole picture’ approach to behavioural training based around our unique WhisperWise® methodology. Our mission is to educate dog owners and dog handlers about behavioural responses, how they differ to traditional obedience training, and to help them understand dog pack behaviour and dog psychology. Changing behaviour is about building a positive relationship, through gentle methods where everybody has a place, and everybody speaks the same language. Get that right and you’ll be on your way to achieving real harmony and happiness in your household.

DogTech® behaviour training is available in either your home or in our state of the art training centre.

DogTech® Puppy School

The DogTech® puppy training pre-school is the first of its kind in Sydney. Step inside a custom designed and created puppy behaviour and etiquette school, that is led by Australia’s authority on dog training. Designed to train your puppy (and you) in a safe environment that is fully equipped for puppy safety and sanitised for cleanliness.

Drawing on our WhisperWise® Methodology our puppy school will set you up for a happy and harmonious home and the best start for your relationship.

At the DogTech® puppy training centre, our 3 week puppy pre-school program will assist with:

  • Socialising with other dogs
  • Establishing boundaries
  • Basic commands – sit, down, stay
  • Crate training a puppy
  • Health, diet and puppy safety instruction
  • Toilet training
  • Lead and walking techniques
  • General behaviour instruction
  • Smooth transition into adolescence

Our fun and informative sessions are led by highly experienced dog behaviourists.

Family involvement in your puppy’s training is highly recommended, however please keep in mind that DogTech® Puppy School covers one puppy and a maximum of two family members.

Upon graduation we provide you with an official DogTech® Certificate of Completion as well as individual and group photos of you and your puppy graduating, taken by a professional photographer.

What you need to attend: Your puppy must be at least 8 weeks old, they must have had their first vaccine a minimum of 10 days prior to the first class.

If your puppy is between 16 weeks and 23 weeks old…

Don’t worry! It’s not too late for puppy school. We are one of the few training centres in Sydney that are experienced to offer puppy school for more mature puppies, contact us before you book and we will let you know the best way forward based on your specific situation.

 

 

DogTech® WhisperWise® Methodology

The WhisperWise® Methodology has been the foundation of dog behaviour training in Australia, Canada, Singapore, India, Japan and the United Kingdom. Over the last 25 years the WhisperWise® Methodology through DogTech® has supported veterinarians, dog breeders and dog rescuers, has been featured in news stories, TV segments and magazine articles in Australia and around the world.

We continue to educate today through workshops and seminars and ongoing work with RSPCA inspectors, council rangers and dog shelters, the pet industry, veterinarians and major government organisations, providing expert knowledge and passionate advocacy.

What you need to attend:

Your puppy must be at least 8 weeks old, they must have had their first vaccine a minimum of 10 days prior to the first class.

Unlike other informally arranged puppy school environments located in vet clinics, pet shops, groomers, public parks, our purpose build and dedicated puppy school centre is specifically designed to adhere to the highest standards of sanitisation and cleanliness.

Additionally our training processes have been specifically designed to minimise transmission risks between dogs through our pre-class sanitation and our in-class procedures.

These standards coupled with the minimum first vaccine requirement creates the best environment for your puppy’s safety and reduction in contamination risks.

If your puppy is between 16 weeks and 23 weeks old…

Don’t worry! It’s not too late for puppy school. We are one of the few training centres in Sydney that are experienced to offer puppy school for more mature puppies, contact us before you book and we will let you know the best way forward based on your specific situation.
