We must be doing something right!


You might think that your dog is too old to be trained…
That it’s too late or there isn’t any hope!

But that’s just not true.

We believe that dog training is about developing trust in your relationship
and achieving life goals together. We, at Homestead, are here to help
you achieve these goals with your beloved furry friend.

Our qualified trainers will work with your dog multiple times per day,
in our safe and stunning training spaces.

We will provide you with access to our Online Course where you
can go behind the Board and Train and develop an
understanding of the dog training process.

Our Trainers work with dogs that need to learn basic or advanced obedience, dogs that have specific behavioural problems and difficult dogs.

We train puppies!

From 4-5 months of age


We train older dogs!

No dog is too old to learn new skills


Our exclusive Board & Train programs exist for the dog owners who lack the time, ability, and knowledge to develop foundational skills within their dog

Our program lengths are designed around the specific needs of the individual dog (typically a minimum of two weeks), however, some difficult breeds or dogs with serious behavioural problems may require our extended training programs.

Your dog will board at Homestead Kennels, and our qualified trainers
will train your dog multiple times daily.

At the completion of the program, we will have a hand-over session
with you, so you can learn how to maintain the behaviours
your dog has learned during their program.

At the Handover, we focus 80% on the human, and 20% on the dog,
to ensure a cohesive relationship going forward for you and your pooch.

Additional sessions with our trainer can be arranged if necessary.
