Understanding behaviours and triggers
Reactivity Retraining is a personalised, gentle, practice-based service for those who have a reactive dog, to support both of you in feeling safe, secure, and confident in interactions with dogs or people. This service involves a uniquely tailored treatment plan developed for you and your dog, to understand, retrain, and integrate reactive behaviours towards other dogs, animals, or humans.
This service involves gentle, positive reinforcement training methods that are taught to you and your dog, alongside supportive sessions in person, consistent nervous-system-impacting Bowen therapy treatments, reading and practical resources.
This service is highly individualised, with one on one training sessions with Maddison on a regular basis to ensure significant changes can be made from day one.
Initial assessment and creation of training plan $220 (valued at $335)

"Maddi has provided me and my dog with the skills, understanding and confidence to navigate his reactivity with care. My dog has made huge leaps and bounds of progress since working with Maddi, and I am very grateful for her insight and way of working that keeps us both relaxed.
- Emily and Valen
A head-start for your training
Kickstart Training sessions are available for those who would like a little extra help working with the dog of any age, but are not dealing with reactivity or other behavioural issues. These training sessions are tailor-made for you and your pup, for where you are in your training journey, and for what you would like to achieve.
These training sessions involve personalised, gentle, positive reinforcement training methods which are taught to both you and your dog through in-person, one-on-one training sessions that provide the opportunity for any questions to be asked.
Individual sessions $140
Assessing The Dog Park
Our Assessing The Dog Park sessions provide you with insights into how to decipher if your local dog park is a safe, appropriate, enjoyable space for your dog. In these one on one sessions you are guided through understanding and identifying the key markers of dynamic, and appropriate plays between dogs and the markers of inappropriate or unsafe groups on any given day.
These sessions are rich with information on dog behaviour and give you the opportunity to learn and apply understanding of dog body language which you can then apply to any dog park or space you would like to take your dog!
$30 per session approximately 1 hour long at your local dog park or beach
