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 products 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;

Board & Train Program
Our popular 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 difficult breeds or dogs with serious 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 the program we will have a hand-over session with you & your family, so you can learn how maintain the behaviours your dog has learnt during the program. Additional follow up sessions with our trainer can be arranged if necessary.
A refresher training program can also help maintain your dog’s manners while you have a holiday.
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!
Homestead Boarding & Training Kennels & Cattery believe the most important stage in a new puppys life is the first 18 weeks. During this time, your pup learns valuable life skills that sets them up for the rest of their lives. We understand the importance of making sure that all puppys attending our 5 week puppy school course acquire the skill set for a well balanced life.
During our 5 week course, we teach, coach and encourage our pups in the following areas;
Confidence Building, Effective Communication, Recall Basics, Sit Basics, Walking with us basics, Toilet Training, Environment & Socialisation, Surface De-sensitization
After our puppy class course is completed, many of our graduates move on to either our Board and Train program and or Obedience Class.
