Welcome to
Hanrob Dog Training Academy



When we welcome a dog into our family we are making a commitment to their ongoing health and wellbeing - providing them with a safe and secure, loving home. But part of that commitment also comes in the form of teaching your dog how to act and behave to ensure they get the most out of life. At Hanrob Dog Training Academy we firmly believe that a well trained dog is a happier dog. Why? Because a well trained dog is given more freedom in life, requires fewer restrictions, receives more attention from family members and interacts better with other people and other dogs.

Since 1994, Hanrob Dog Training Academy has not only been training dogs and their owners, but also educating the next generation of dog trainers and assisting government bodies train working dogs such as Detector Dogs. Our expertise in dog training is unrivalled, and our team of expert educators split their time between working with families like yours and with larger organisations, both in Australia and overseas. From puppies who need early guidance through to dogs with established problem behaviours, our educators have seen it all, and can quickly achieve results that last.

Our methodology is based on the latest research and is refined continuously to effectively treat your dog’s underlying cause of undesirable behaviour and improve their - and your - quality of life. We have a range of dog training options, with on-site courses that last 7 and 18 days, and one-on-one lessons that can be conducted in your own home. For ongoing training, we offer Group Obedience Classes, and even have a 30 minute canine exercise class designed to condition and strengthen your dog. You can book any of our courses online, or why not call 1300 426 762 to discuss your unique requirements

        • Stay & Train

          With on-site accommodation for your dog, we are uniquely positioned to provide intensive dog training courses that will quickly and effectively establish positive behaviours in your dog. Combined with a comprehensive departure lesson and ongoing group obedience training, our Stay and Train dog training courses are perfect for those looking to set a foundation in obedience. Choose from the seven day Short Stay Training Course and the 18-day Training For Life Course.

           

        • intensive training

          Located adjacent to our Pet Hotels, our Dog Training Academies are uniquely positioned to provide intensive training courses. We offer two 'Stay and Train' courses - a short stay, or seven-day course, and a longer, 18-day course, referred to as our Training For Life course.

          During both courses, your dog will stay on-site at your nearest Dog Training Academy for 7 or 18 days, and will have dedicated access to their expert educator. Each day, they will receive one-on-one time with their trainer, and will be exposed to whatever situations they need help with - be it socialisation with other animals, basic obedience, or specific dog behaviours.

          Through tailored, intensive training, your dog will be conditioned over the course of their stay at Hanrob Dog Training Academy, but that's not the end of the story. At the end of their stay, we invite you - as your dog's most significant educator - to spend time with your dog and their trainer and take part in a thorough departure lesson. You'll be brought up to speed on what your dog has learned, and how you can ensure their positive behaviour outcomes continue and are reinforced in your home environment.

          Ongoing assesment is crucial to achieving results and, prior to arrival, you'll be asked to complete a questionnaire on your dog's current behaviours. During their stay at our Academy, your dog will then be assessed regularly, with results sent through to you so you can gauge their progress. For dog's enrolled in our Short Stay Training, we recommend enrolling in ongoing group obedience training and, for those committing to our Training For Life course, we are happy to offer complementary obedience classes for life.

          7-DAY COURSE

          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.
