Training

Playnpaws Trainers are all NDTF qualified and accredited Trainers who have both experience and knowledge based on the latest scientifically proven methods and techniques to assist in helping you achieve your goals for your dog. Servicing whole of Brisbane except for Reactive Dog Program.

Playnpaws also run Precise K9 Dog Training Dog Training for severe behaviour problems. 

Reactive Dog Program 

For Dogs who are reactive: 

  1. On a leash 
  2. To other dogs 
  3. To humans

We work with the dog one-on-one and then slowly integrate them into a social environment utilising counter-conditioning/desensitization methods. We then work with the clients at home so we can successfully integrate the dogs new skills at home and in other environments. 

This is our most popular training services and have a very high success rate. Due to the amount of resources and management involved, we only permit one dog through the program at a time. 

The length of the program depends on the dog, the owner and other variables. 

Puppy Socialization and Confidence Building Sessions 

Playnpaws Puppy programs are designed to work in with your busy working and family schedule during this important period of your puppies development. The puppy's are taken out by a trainer during the day whilst the owner is at work. The puppy should ideally start as soon as possible and intakes are from age 6-12 weeks and run until the puppy is approximately 20 weeks old. The aim is to positively expose the puppy to as many new things and environments as possible using low level exposure. Sessions may include exposure to loud noises, machinery, lawn mowers, other animals, water and the beach, children and people, vehicles, riding in vehicles, and other dogs.

This session is ideal for those new puppy owners who:

  • have taken their puppy for their first round of vaccinations (C3).
  • have a puppy aged 6-12weeks old 
  • have an energetic puppy that needs stimulation during working hours
  • lack knowledge or confidence in desensitization, habituation and counter-conditioning techniques
  • working couples who are time poor
  • live in an apartment or townhouse as can double as toilet breaks for their puppy
  • just want their puppy to become a more happy, confident dog

Private In-home Consultations

The In-home consultations are suitable for dog owners seeking one-on-one professional help for their dogs with a range of problems extending from minor to major issues .These issues may include dogs who; 

  • are destructive and are unmanageable around the home
  • have severe pulling on the lead and/or leash re-activity whilst on walks
  • have separation anxiety whilst owners are away
  • have aggression toward humans, other dogs or other animals. 
  • have no boundaries and structure around the house  
  • need toilet training 
  • resource guard (food, toys,...etc).
  • are overly dominant within the family unit
  • are insecure, anxious or fearful 
  • excessively bark 
  • obedience (both pet and precision obedience)

The number of sessions can vary depending on the severity of the issue and the owners ability to successfully implement and grasp the training techniques. On average most minor-moderate issues need 2-4 follow-up sessions at 1 week intervals. More sessions are required for severe behavioural problems, also at 1 week intervals.

Behaviour Modification Live-in Programs

These programs are designed to kick start your dogs rehabilitation toward a more happy, confident dog that is able to be integrated more successfully into the family unit. These programs are specifically designed for dogs with severe behavioural issues such as dogs who;

  • like to chase bikes/vehicles/cats/or other small animals
  • have severe aggression toward humans, other dogs or other animals
  • are severely insecure, anxious or fearful
  • have severe resource guarding

After the program the trainer will do a hand over session with the owner to ensure the dogs progress obtained whilst in the program can be implemented and transitioned into the family environment. Further follow-up sessions may be required. 

All report sessions for all training sessions and consults are posted to Playnpaws Facebook forum where the owner can review the session and any improvements or milestones met by their dogs.

Testimonials

Heather & Jeremy say "Hey Tammy, I know it's way past business hours so apologies for bugging you but I finally got to check out your fb posts of Jez and what can I say? So so amazing! I know he's still really behind in confidence stakes but far out! He's resting his chin on your boys leg!? It's crazy, you've got no idea how amazing this is to see, I/Jeremy need to keep working with you!...Yes, he's definitely a mixed up boy and can be dangerous but I just wanted you to know you have achieved more than anyone in such a short time, it's awesome. You deserve a medal so far!" - Greenslopes, Brisbane

About Us

Playnpaws has been running for 5 years and is managed and owned by qualified NDTF Head Dog Trainer and Obedience Instructor Tammy Peters and her team of talented Handlers and Trainers.

Tammy and her team have an authentic passion and love for dogs. Playnpaws' driving motivation and goal is to improve the lives of dogs and the lives of their families. Their dedication to service and professionalism have made them stand apart from the competition. 

Tammy saw a lack of skills and knowledge in both the Dog Training and Dog Walking industry in Brisbane and decided it necessary to fill the void. All Trainers have attained accreditation through National Dog Trainers Federation (the only Nationally Recognised Dog Trainers Certification Program in Australia) which methods are the latest in scientifically proven techniques. Furthermore, all Handlers have gone through an internal training induction program which teaches basic dog behaviour, some basic obedience techniques, and basic pet first aid. 

Playnpaws is proud of the fact that they have never had a lost dog, a dog fight, or a dog injury during the course of their business. This is due to what Tammy believes are necessary rules and procedures put in place to ensure all parties are kept safe.
