Private Lessons

Canberra- Wallaroo

Change your dogs' behaviour today!

  • Don't have time for obedience schools?

  • Do you require immediate results?

  • Are you looking for a highly experienced and qualified trainer who understands your problems and will give you the answers you're seeking there and then?



 Sidney is one of the best in the business. He is a wealth of information! Not only is he training your dog but he is training you also. I never realized my actions would reflect in my dog. Sidney has taught Dakota a lot in a short amount of time. For a dog who was on a gentle leader and couldn't walk on a lead to being able to walk by my side. We couldn't recommend Sidney enough

One on one tuition is one of the most effective ways to get the results that you are looking for.  These lessons will not only show you how to teach your dog new skills but you will also get more of an insight into how your dog learns and how to make the best of this.  Remember, dogs learn very differently to humans!

Are you having issues with?

  • Pulling on leash

  • Ignoring you

  • Reactive or aggressive towards other dogs/ animals and people

  • Destructive behaviour ie; digging and chewing

  • Not coming when called

  • Excessive Barking

  • Food aggression

  • Separation anxiety/issues

"I contacted Sid after I realised the puppy I had adopted was deaf. I knew Stella would need to be well trained to get the quality of life I wanted her to have. Sid has helped me achieve and even surpass my original goal. Stella is now 13 months old and enjoying the same freedom as my other dogs' thanks to being trained with hand signals. The training methods give me the means of communicating with her when she is not looking at me and has given her the freedom of being able to be off lead at the beach and in dog parks. He has helped me train her in obedience exercises, tricks and complex skills. His knowledge is incredible and he shows an amazing understanding and genuine love of dogs. I have watched Sid in different training scenarios, with many different dogs, and he assesses their individual needs perfectly. I would not hesitate in recommending him for any type of training."

What Are The Benefits To Private Lessons?

  • Time-efficient

  • Cost-effective

Why we do not offer the 'one-off' 3hr Lesson...


The reason we don't offer a 3-hour lesson is that psychologists have proven that people will only remember 20 to 30 per cent of what they have been taught in a 1 hour period.  Your dog friend has even less capacity to retain and process new information at that same time.  It is therefore of little value to you or your dog to have any more than a 1-hour lesson.  During your 1 hour lesson, we keep it simple and thorough so that you get great value for money while maximizing your time.


Sidney has literally changed my life. My rescue has a severe fear aggression problem to other dogs and he has reduced that to the point I can take her places and have her around others. Thank you so much. I never thought I'd see the day she could be in the vicinity of other dogs. C. McBlane

I went to Sidney after my wife googled him. Beau, our rescue 5 year old Border Collie X was diagnosed by the shelter as being deaf. Sid after 2 minutes put that theory to bed. We had one dog that had been taught to disregard all noises/sound. As he was misdiagnosed as being deaf, we had no history of any prior training. Sid has now prepared a dog for our family that has good 
obedience skills and seems a happier dog for it. Thanks Sid!
