Ive got a 2yr old male lab x cocker that i want to enrol in some obedience training classes around sydney.
Im going away on holidays for 2 weeks soon and was thinking of organizing the training while he is boarding at a kennel that way i can have both of it done at the same time.
now the question is, its so hard to find a decent kennel / training combination in sydney, i was hoping people could recommend some places for me.
Simba has stayed at the australian pet resort in dural a couple times about a year ago, and seemed to have fun, but ive found a few reviews lately suggesting they neglect their dogs. Ive also no idea how good their training program is.
i thought about enrolling him at guard dog training center in berkshire park as they convinced me they had a great program, and it includes free problem troubleshooting later on as well as baiting training so that he only eats out of his bowl not out of strangers hands. but ive found a few reviews advising people to stay well clear of this company as their pets have had major issues after coming back.
There was also another trainer near bringelly that my parents took their dog to, but which completely mentally damaged the dog. the dog has never been the same since, suffering depression and fear and always being down. They were forced to come get the dog early because it apparently tried biting the trainer multiple times, the dog was never like that at home, so the trainer must have done something bad to her. I dont want to go there either.
many people suggest k9pro, but steve doesnt offer boarding/training only personal 1-1 one off sessions.
Any help would be appreciated.
