Teaching good dogs to be great

Providing positive dog and puppy training in Central and West Auckland

It’s okay for your dog to act like a dog

From digging and chewing to jumping up to greet you, certain behaviours are perfectly natural in the canine world, even if they might be a little frustrating for us humans. At Bark Dog Training, we understand the dichotomy and are here to help. Our science-based, positive training methods are designed to channel your dog’s natural instincts into behaviours that are both rewarding for them and acceptable to you. So yes, it’s absolutely okay for your dog to act like a dog; we’re just here to help them do it in a way that complements your lifestyle.

What we can help with

We can work on a number of behaviours and skills, not limited to:

  • Leash skills
  • Fear related behaviours
  • Jumping/polite greetings
  • Recall
  • Resource guarding
  • Noise sensitivity
  • Excessive barking
  • Handling/grooming
  • Dog fitness
  • Enrichment activities
  • And more!

Our Training Options

Initial consultation

All of our training programs begin with a required initial consultation, where we’ll learn more about your dog, their struggles, and your training goals! We’ll begin with a 30 minute chat about your dog’s behaviour and your goals via phone, zoom or coffee conversation and follow it with a 1 hour training and assessment session.
