Dog Being Trained


Our Training Philosophy

Recognising that all dogs and all people learn different, Salty Pack ensures that the training plan laid out is going to suit all dog and handler combos. Coming from a balanced training background, Salty Pack utilises all types of learning for all types of dogs.

To start, finding our dogs motivators is a huge start point as it will help to provide us success in the long term. Communication with our dogs can sometimes feel clunky, so Salty Pack spends time developing the handler-dog language to lean into behaviours that we love and want to promote!

Every dog has the potential to learn and progress more, and Salty Pack is here to help guide both handler and dog to their highest potential for a long and happy life together.

Group Training

Private Training

Walk & Train

Before engaging in any services (except grooming), all teams must do a 1-Hour In-Home Private Lesson/Assessment. This allows for feedback to be given at home in regards to rules, structures, boundaries, and nutrition to set up teams for the best success possible. In this session, you will get an overview of Salty Pack’s style of training to make sure it is a good fit, and will come up with a training plan moving forward to achieve any goals agreed upon. This session is mostly theoretical, and not too much hands on, but you will receive a lot of information from your trainer so a follow-up email is also provided to layout all discussions had and suggestions made.

1 Hour In-Home Private Lesson & Assessment
  • Single Session: $115

In these 1-hour Private Lessons, handlers are present with their dogs and have the hour to work with a trainer in regards to overall in-home behaviours or general obedience in- or out-of-home depending on handler request. At the end of the session, depending what was discussed and reviewed, a brief overview and homework will be sent out after the session to make sure progress continues to happen outside of formal training hours. Private Lessons are preferred for dog and handler teams who are looking to improve their communication and handling together.
