Behaviour consulting

At Hikin' Hounds, we want you and your dog to have a long lasting relationship where you can rely on your dog fitting in with your urban lifestyle while still having the freedom to behave as a dog would naturally. 

We use only force-free techniques that follow your dog's natural learning abilities to teach them appropriate behaviours and counter-condition any existing behavioural issues they may have. We are certified through the Academy for Dog Trainers and use a science-based approach to ensure that you and your new furry buddy create a positive, strongly-bonded relationship that will last for a lifetime. 

We offer private, one-one-one counselling and training sessions uniquely designed for you, your dog and your lifestyle. We provide detailed, written homework for you after each session so that you have the tools to accurately and affectively follow through on all the necessary training.
