The program is designed for those looking for quality and comprehensive dog training in Melbourne, and can help with many challenging behaviours including:

  • having selective hearing, and/or

  • jumping all over you and your guests.

The program encourages you to learn as your pooch learns to enable you both to develop great life-long habits. This includes resources such as an online learning platform to complete, a comprehensive induction and handover 1-on-1 with your assigned trainer and the ability to continue to reach out ongoing for additional support - we are always here when you need us!

Margaret Hill

Meg & all staff at Kip did a fantastic job in training and looking after my beautiful Daisy , I was kept informed with lots of photos and videos of her progress. Highly Recommended.

Sarah Barras

We had our 6 month old energised, divine vizsla in care and train for 12 days whilst overseas. We were very anxious first time users- as always have used in home sitters with our other dogs. Our baby was too risky to leave at home, in case a door or gate wasn’t shut etc as he is very fast and not perfect in his manners yet. He had daily training at Kip, extra cuddles every lunch with staff, walks and enrichment programs. We have been delighted with his performance on his return- his excitement is huge but he can keep 4 feet on the ground, sit, drop, concentrate under distraction. It has been an awesome jump start on his behaviour. We rested knowing he was safe, well fed (regular weigh in) and daily video updates of our goofy boy. Strongly recommend.

Dina Calogiros

I would like to thank kip for looking after my cat while being away. Its always hard to leave my beloved cat, but always know that he is been looked after and loved be this amazing cattery. The staff a friendly and loving. Always receiving pictures and updates always puts my mind at ease. I highly recommend kip as the cat place to be. Thank you so much for looking after Casper, he really enjoys coming and spending time there.

Dog Training FAQs

Can my dog be trained while boarding?

Yes. We have various boarding & training programs to cater for your needs. Please enquire about our programs by calling (03) 9722 1202.

Will my dog obey me when it comes home?

Throughout your dog’s board and train program, we will train your dog multiple times each day. At the conclusion, we will conduct a hand-over lesson to make sure you know how to control and maintain your dog’s behaviour once they return home.

My dog has already been through a board and train program; can he have Refresher Training when boarding next time?

Certainly, many owners take the opportunity to have refresher training for their dog during their next stay.

What if my dog displays challenging behaviours?

If your dog displays challenging behaviours or regularly causes you trouble, Kip encourages you to engage in dog training. Dog training can help with problematic behaviours such as pulling on the leash, reacting to other dogs, jumping on others, and having selective hearing.

At Kip, we have over 40 years of dog care experience. We understand that every dog is different, so our Melbourne dog training team use a personalised approach and tailor our training programs to target specific behavioural issues to meet your pup’s unique needs.
