Puppy Lessons
at Hanrob Dog Training Academy

Bringing home a new puppy is a wonderful time for both your family and your new pet. With boundless energy and so much to learn and explore, puppies are an exciting addition to any home. However, they also bring challenges and, without a basic understanding of some of the common skills you need to teach your puppy, you may quickly become disheartened by a puppy who refuses to listen to you and a home that is fast becoming destroyed. At Hanrob Pet Hotels, we offer one-on-one, on-site puppy lessons that will allow you to start as you mean to go on, and take advantage of this crucial stage in your puppy's development. 

Our brand new Puppy Lessons are available to puppy-parents across Australia and are an important first step in your role as a responsible pet owner. During this one-on-one, one hour lesson, your dog trainer will teach you everything you need to know about toilet training, basic obedience, play time, settling, socialisation and more - giving you the tools and techniques you need to take home with you. This class is recommended for puppies aged up to six months and can be booked by calling 1300 426 762 or by booking online.

          Pet Shuttle

          Our 7-day, Short Stay Training course is a popular choice for those jetting off on holiday - taking advantage of their dog's time at Hanrob Pet Hotels to get on top of some problem behaviours and reinforce positive outcomes whilst they're away.

          Because of their experience and expertise, our dog trainers are able to efficiently and effectively resolve many issues whilst your dog enjoys their stay at Hanrob, and you can look forward to a better-behaved dog on your reunion!

          Whilst our Short Stay Training Course can be adapted to suit the needs of your dog, you can also choose from three popular topics:

          • Walk Time - designed to improve lead time, holding of the heel position and ability to walk past distractions
          • Doggy Manners - designed to manage excitable behaviour, improve control around humans, minimise problem behaviour around distractions and improve self control
          • Recall Reliably - designed to improve recall on a short and long lead and in a variety of settings, whilst also teaching recall around distractions and that coming when called is fun!

          Of course, we can also tailor each course to suit the particular requirements of you and your dog, using the seven days to combat any challenges you may be facing.

          Our Short Stay Training course is offered at Hanrob Dog Training Academies in Sydney (Duffys Forest, Heathcote), Canberra, Melbourne and Brisbane. To book online, click here, or call 1300 426 762.


          18-DAY COURSE

          DOG tRAINING

          An unrivalled dog training program, our 18-day Training for Life course offers a lifetime of training to your dog, which begins with an 18-day stay at our Dog Training Academy, and continues through free access to group obedience classes or one-on-one private lessons for the duration of your dog's life.

          Designed to give your dog the best possible start to their training, this course allows our trainers offers time to cover the foundations of dog training - from the basics right to your dog’s unique behavioural problems. For 18 days, your dog will stay and train with their dedicated educator, who is committed to helping your dog progress and overcome their individual challenges.

          Your dog's educator will keep you informed of their progress throughout their stay at Hanrob, with reports sent through to you regularly. You will also be invited to attend an all-important departure lesson at the end of your dog's stay. This is not only a great opportunity to fill you in on your dog's progress, but is also a crucial part of the training, as our educators will give you the direction and tools you need to continue your dog's training where it matters most - in your day-to-day interactions in your home environment.

          Training for Life doesn't end at the departure lesson, however - when you sign up to Training For Life, we give you just that - training for life. You'll have free access to our weekly Group Obedience Training Classes, or one-on-one private lessons with your educator as and when you feel you or your dog would benefit from them.

          An unrivalled dog training program, Training For Life is offered at Hanrob Dog Training Academies in Sydney (Duffys Forest, Heathcote), Canberra, Melbourne and Brisbane. To book online, click here, or call 1300 426 762.




          Special Requirements

As well as their accommodation, play time and meals, our Studious Pet Package includes daily one-on-one dog training lessons with a dedicated, on-site trainer.

          We'll update you on your pet's progress throughout their stay at Hanrob Pet Hotels, and brief you on outcomes prior to departure. You'll also be given the tools and information you need to ensure lasting outcomes when your dog arrives home.

          All packages come complete with pick up and drop off from your local vet, two nutritious daily meals, exclusive care from our team of highly trained pet welfare professionals, accommodation in our purpose built pet hotels and our pet health cover guarantee.
