A 10% discount is available for all in-home consultations for pensioners and health care card holders, as well as for dogs that have done Puppy Preschool with me.

Pre-pickup Consultation

Before you buy your puppy or pick up an older dog from a rescue, let us assist you in the early stages to avoid having problems further down the track.
(In the present circumstances, this can be done online.)

Price: $100

There are a number of things to consider, e.g. the reason for getting the puppy/dog: Are you considering becoming involved in showing your dog? Participating in a dog sport? Or is this to be a companion dog for just you … or a family dog?

We will:

  • Discuss the suitability of breeds
  • Give equipment advice
  • Help to set up the house for your new puppy or dog
  • Discuss the housing setup, bedding, puppy pens, baby gates, toileting, feeding, enrichment, etc.
