Dog Training Services

Homestead Dog Boarding & Training Kennels & Cattery has been providing “Best Practice” Dog Training in Melbourne since 1977.

Over the years, we have been able to develop a range of Dog Training services that give both owners and dogs great outcomes and therefore cement the relationship between dog and owner (and family).

We understand how and what dogs think and most importantly how they learn, so with this knowledge comes the application of putting it into use.

We offer the following Dog Training Services to give you, our customer a wide choice of solutions;

Dog Board & Train Programs

Our popular dog Boarding & Training program is available for the dog whose owner does not have the time, ability or inclination to train their dog. We cater for dogs that need to learn basic to advanced obedience, dogs that have specific behavioural problems and difficult dogs. Each program runs for a minimum of two weeks, however some breeds or dogs with problems may take longer.
Your dog will board at Homestead Kennels, and our qualified trainers will train your dog multiple times daily. At the completion of your dogs program we will conduct a hand-over session with you & your family, so you can learn how maintain the behaviours your dog has learnt during their stay with us. Additional follow up sessions with our trainer can be arranged if necessary.

Refresher training programs can also help maintain your dog’s manners while you have a holiday or your dog is boarding with us.
Please note that we limit our intake of “Dogs in Training” to a manageable number each month to ensure the quality outcomes we provide to our customers. Please feel free to contact us to discuss a start time for your dogs education and how we can assist in creating a more balanced relationship between you and your beloved pooch!
