Our new and evolving world calls for all new practices so we have been updating our training programs to incorporate as many online options as possible, adding new options regularly.  We will be presenting courses for you, to take with your dog. 

You take this course, with your dog, though blended learning; a combination of online and in-person education. You and your dog can work through your program and practice any time, any place.

Right now, registration is open for our Behaviour Matters course that is especially for pet owners with dogs who display behaviours of concern. 

AniEd are the trainers of trainers and have developed curricula and programs based on decades of experience, working with thousands of human-dog teams, and the most up to date tools and techniques for effectively teaching both ends of the leash. 

We understand the science behind human and dog teaching, and by making it fun, accessible and effective, we will help you apply it.

How it works

Start by registering here and provide a little information about you and your dog's behaviour. We might have some further questions or clarifications. From there, we can arrange times and days that work best for you, to get your program started. 

We will respond to your email as quickly as possible, usually within 1-2 working days, but we are not available by phone and all initial arrangements will be made by email.

We will ask you about your potential COVID-19 exposure and the vaccination status of those attending the in-person sessions. You may choose not to respond, which is absolutely fine, but, in this case, we will not be able to arrange an in-person session with you at this time. 
We are fully vaccinated and are in contact with high risk individuals so must have precautions in place to reduce risk of spread.

Getting ready:

  • Your first session must be paid, in full (or according to our agreed payment plan), electronically, at least 24 hours before the session is due to start. A session is not confirmed until payment has been received. See here for more on making payments.
  • It's best not to feed your dog just before an in-person session. Give them just half their normal meal no less than a couple of hours before our session is due to start
  • At this time, we ask that maximum two people are present for in-person sessions and that they be fully vaccinated against COVID-19. 
    Arrange for another adult to be available to help with small children. It's best that children have an activity to keep them occupied while we work; some discussions may be too sensitive for children and for the most part, small children will find a training session a bit too long and boring!
  • Please have a table, desk or similar and chairs available for us to sit at during in-person sessions.

Depending on what we are working on, your dog’s behaviour, and whether I have met your dog before, there may be specific set-up requirements that we will discuss before your session. 

Before I arrive: 

  • You must provide at least 24 hours notice of cancellation or postponement; refunds of fees are not available otherwise. 
  • We will message you the night before a morning session or the morning of an evening session, just as a reminder. 
  • Provide us with information about parking at your house; have parking tag/tickets ready for when I arrive.
  • When I arrive at your house, I won't ring the bell or knock (to avoid too much excitement before we even start!). Instead I will message or call.
  • Please securely confine your dog to another room, his crate or confinement area, or outside, with a closed door, before I enter. This allows us to have a quick chat with you about your dog’s behaviour and then we will meet your dog in a way that ensures their comfort.

Given the current restrictions, I may not be able to supply training equipment for use during our session. It's best to have some of your dog's favourites, like treats and chews, to keep them entertained during our session.
