Behaviour-Modification

At Total Canine, we can assist you with general obedience training, but more importantly, we can help you address a wide range of behavioural issues that may occur with your fur kids. It can be extremely frustrating when your dog is doing something that disrupts the harmony in your house, but sometimes it’s US that disrupts the harmony in THEIR lives!

It’s important to understand that dogs are very different to us, and when we can’t communicate with them properly because we don’t speak their language or understand what they’re telling us, problems with your dog can become serious issues. Some people can feel quite embarrassed by their dog’s behaviour and can see it as a reflection on them as an owner.

We use only scientifically sound and humane principles to achieve our results, with a goal to identify and eliminate the cause of the dogs’ issue, rather than techniques that simply suppress the behaviour.  We speak ‘dog’, and we can empathise with both your position and theirs, and we would love to help you work towards eliminating problems and building a truly special bond with your dog that will ‘bring balance back to your family’.

Feel free to give us a call and discuss what’s troubling you, we’re always happy to chat!  If needed, our 2-hour in-home consultations are only $150.00 in the Perth Metropolitan area and we can spend some time working with you and your dog there together!

Board and Train

Sometimes the issues with your dog are a little more serious and need more intensive training to resolve the problem as quickly as possible.  We offer a “board and train” package where your fur kid will stay with us while they will undergo training to help them.

This is custom tailored to suit your specific needs and the length of stay can be varied to suit.

Full Board and Train with daily walks, food and intensive one on one training all inclusive at only $600 per week.

Group Training and Workshops

We offer periodic group training sessions and specialised workshops that give you and your dog the opportunity to participate in a class environment working in with other owners with similar learning goals.

A Guarantee You Can Count On

We can’t guarantee we can fix your dog… that’s naive, as dogs are not machines! Our fur kids are beautiful living creatures, that can be both unpredictable and complicated creatures, just like us.

What we can guarantee is that we are that confident we can help, that if we can’t improve your dog’s problem or issue and ‘bring some balance back to your family’, you don’t have to pay a cent… Now that’s a guarantee you can count on!
