If you want to enrich your pets life, we are here to guide you. From puppy or kitten through their active years, and into their senior days, we have options and fun classes for all pets.

Our Services

Behaviour

Does your dog or cat have anxiety, show aggression to people or dogs, or more serious problems? We are experts at improving animal behaviours, by one on one training with your dog or cat, and teaching you the skills to apply easy, compassionate positive training techniques. We provide effective options that are convenient for you, in your home or at one of our training facilities.

Training

From cheeky puppies to rambunctious adolescent dogs or perhaps an older dog who needs to brush up on their manners, we have a group training class to suit you and your dog. This includes general manners, dog sports and even scent training. There is something for every dog.

Classes are small (max 6 dogs) so we can give you and your dog individual attention and coaching. Only positive methods are used so you can ensure that your dog enjoys every minute.

Wellness

General wellness can affect your pets behaviour. Pawsitive Connection offera an holistic approach including canine nutrition advice, Tellington Touch (dog massage and healing) and strength and conditioning classes.

We can also run workshops so please check back regularly or call one of our experts to find out more.
