How private dog training works

Our commitment to you

We can help with…

  • Basic manners like coming when called, sitting when asked, and walking nicely instead of pulling on the leash.
  • Disruptive behaviours like barking, jumping up, house training accidents, puppy biting, chewing, and other forms of destruction.
  • Worrisome behaviours like shyness, fearfulness, leash reactivity, and aggression toward dogs or people.

How we help

If you are experiencing behaviour issues like fear or aggression we will work to help you through these challenges with a behaviour modification program specific to your dog.

If you are looking to brush up on some basic manners, or teach your dog new skills we have two training packages available depending on your goals.

How we teach

We use only positive, reward-based training that is effective, safe and fun and based on the laws of learning and science. We will teach you how to train your dog or, if you’re busy and need to see faster results, we can do the training for you!

Testimonials

People who trust us

"Our Australian Shepherd wasn't too happy when our baby started crawling around, so we did a few online training sessions with Saundra from Alpine Dogs. She was really efficient and her directions were clear. We could see the progress at every session and the way she explained things made us understand why our dog was acting this way. I would definitely recommend online training with Alpine Dogs. Pup and toddler are now friends!"
Elyse Lortie. Rust's dog mum
“We have been working with Saundra with our rescue pup to help with her reactivity. Firstly, Saundra is so lovely and makes us feel totally comfortable and we trust her completely. The advice she has given us is second to none and has provided us with so many valuable tools. Coco has come so far that we would never have believed it. We can’t wait to continue to work with her! Thank you so so so much!”
Elisa Curnock, Coco's dog mum
"We have been sending our rescue pup Remy with Alpine Dogs for 3 months now as well as doing a few private sessions to help with recall and general obedience. We have seen huge improvements with his behaviour and confidence due to the help and training Saundra has given us. Highly recommend doing some sessions with her!"
