Build a bond through early training

Providing positive dog and puppy training in Central and West Auckland

Train today, prevent problems tomorrow

Congratulations on your new puppy! While those little paws and floppy ears are irresistibly adorable, now is the perfect time to start training. Why? Because getting a good start on training not only sets your pup up for a lifetime of good behaviour but also builds a strong, loving bond between you and your newest family member. At Bark Dog Training, we believe that a well-trained puppy is a happy puppy. By laying the right foundation today, you’ll be preventing future behavioural issues and nurturing a relationship built on trust, love, and communication.

  • Guidance and support for new puppy parents

  • Teaching cooperative play practices
  • Skills for stress free grooming and vet visits
  • Jumping
  • Puppy biting
  • Teaching your puppy how to sleep through the night
  • Preventing issues with handling/grooming
