BIGPAW Puppy & Dog Selection
Free of Charge
Pedigree and Rescue Dogs
If you have not yet selected your puppy, get in touch with us for free help in choosing the ideal companion.
If you are sure you want a big dog, but unsure which dog breed might best suit you we can support you by helping you select the appropriate large or giant breed for your lifestyle.
We will support you in contacting breeders, accompany you as you meet and choose your puppy from the litter, and help you navigate the sometimes confusing world of pedigree dogs.
We also assess suitability for potential rescue and re homed dogs of any age, free of charge.
We do not accept payment for this service as it is our way of giving back to the large dog owning community, ensuring that responsible large breed ownership starts off on the right foot.
BIGPAW Behavioural Training
$195 Initial Consultation
$99 Follow Up Sessions
Perhaps your dog lunges, chases, seems to get along fine with canine friends whilst off-leash, but explodes with barking and growling when you are walking down the street. Whatever the behavioural issue, these problems can cause stress, impact your daily life and affect your relationship with your dog.
We are experienced in the treatment of behavioural issues and will design a program to alter your dogs behaviour so that you are able to better enjoy the experience of your canine companion. Contact us now to find out more.
BIGPAW Puppy Set-Up
$225 Consultation includes a starter puppy pack.
You are about to bring home your brand new puppy and want to set them up for success. We can help set up a perfect puppy environment for your new dog to come home to, and move past those initial training hurdles. Our behaviour management tactics combined with foundation training skills significantly reduces the potential for common issues with toilet training, teething, puppy biting, mouthing and excess energy which can affect your experience with your new dog.
BIGPAW Obedience Training
$120 Initial Consultation
$90 Follow Up Sessions
Perfect for dogs that are going through their "teenage" period, rescues who may not have had foundational training in their previous life and dogs who have developed undesirable behaviours.
Best suited to dogs who are struggling with mastering heeling or loose-leash walking, coming back when called, settling on a bed, name recognition, 'not listening when being told what to do' and all other general obedience challenges.
