How private dog training works

Our commitment to you

We can help with…

  • resource guarding
  • leash reactivity
  • stranger danger
  • dog-dog aggression
  • fear behaviour or avoidance behaviour
  • dog-human aggression
  • and more….


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.

Our first session is held online via Zoom so that we can discuss in detail what behaviours you are experiencing, go over a management plan and coach you on how we will address these behaviour challenges together.

Our second session can be in person or online where we will continue to work together on our behaviour modification protocol with your dog.

How we teach

We use only science-based training that is effective, safe and based on the laws of learning and behaviour.

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!"
Nikki Kishi, Remy's dog mum
