        Our flagship dog training program is our Training For Life Program. The objectives of this program is to set the dog training foundations, improve problem behaviours and train owners to train the dogs ongoing in their home environment.

        The uniqueness of this program is ongoing support via group classes and one on one training sessions at our facilities. We specifically designed this course to achieve positive results for your dog and you.

        The daily routine for your dog is dependent on the Trainers objectives for that specific day, it could include specific one on one training sessions, group play for socialisation or even group distraction training around the Hanrob staff and facilities.

        We break the program down into 4 specific areas; Initial phase, bonding, socialising and understanding your dog (lots of play, cuddles and interaction); phase 2, teaching basic obedience and general manners; phase 3, specific dog behaviours and advanced exercises; and phase 4, the most important - training you to be a dog training to continue the training at home and manage your dog if any future undesired behaviours arise. Facebook Page.
