Understanding your dog’s behaviour is key to successful training


Take Your Dog To School

A little training goes a long way towards a happy, well-behaved companion. We’ll teach you about dog behaviour and how to use this knowledge in everyday life, including for training. We use fun, reward-based methods that teach people and dogs to love training.

Beginning Series

For dogs over three months of age, ideal for those that missed out on puppy training. This class will help you teach your dog using fun, reward-based methods. From sassy adolescents to mature-age mutts, this class benefits dogs of all ages. We’ve had students older than 8 years of age, proving you can teach an old dog new tricks!

Training topics include sit, down (drop), stand, stay, wait, walk nicely on lead, come when called, take/leave it (toys, food), good canine manners and more.

When: Tuesday evenings 6:15pm

Where: K9 Zone, McPherson St, Bacchus Marsh

Cost: $165

Duration:4 weeks, 1 hour per session

Private Tuition

If your dog needs more personalised attention or your schedule does not fit with our class times, we offer private lessons in your home. We are based in Bacchus Marsh, but have worked with clients across Western Suburbs of Melbourne, including Ballan, Werribee, Hoppers Crossing, Sunshine, Rockbank, Tarneit and Caroline Springs. We also travel to Geelong on appointment.

We can create a customised program for your dog and help you achieve your training goals. If your dog has a behavioural problem that we are not qualified to treat, we will be happy to refer you to a veterinary behaviourist.

Cost: $385

Duration: Initial 2 hr consult plus 2 training sessions included

Ages: Three months +

Extra Services

Alongside dog training, we also offer a range of other services.

Pet sitting (dog and cats)

As an alternative to kennels, which can be very stressful for your pets, we offer a pet sitting service. We are happy to look after your pets in their own home, or we offer a lovely safe environment in our own home. Dogs have a fully enclosed courtyard with comfy beds and toys to play with and daily walks. Cats have their own space with comfy armchairs to spend lazy days enjoying the sun. Lots of cuddle time provided for both dogs and cats. Inspections welcome.
