Socialisation - A Better Understanding and the Importance of Positive Interaction
Socialisation seems to be a misunderstood topic by many pet owners. It is so much more than just interacting with other dogs, in fact, poor interaction with other dogs as puppies can cause a lifetime of behavioural problems. Elite Canine Training and Behaviour run a Puppy program that teaches puppy owners how to socialise their new puppy correctly and so much more.

The outside world can be so unpredictable which at times makes owners and dogs feel uneasy, at our training field it is a private and controlled environment allowing our clients to build confidence in their own time.

When we first met Kylie we were considering giving away one of our dogs as the aggression and fighting became too much. The first session changed the way we looked at the situation and only a couple of months later the relationship between our dogs is the best it's ever been. Thanks, Kylie, your calm and intelligent approach changed our life.
Kylie was literally a lifesaver for my puppy experience with my Spoodle Zara. I had an unwell puppy from the day I brought her home, which made her unsettled and me very anxious, as well as working in healthcare at peak Covid-19. My vet gave me Kylie's details, and from our first conversation, I felt at ease from her reassurance that we could get Zara settled before I returned to work. However, my concerns about expecting a puppy to adjust to my shift work and living in a townhouse complex with no backyard left me questioning if I had made the right choice to get a dog. It was at times a hard road, but with Kylie's guidance and assistance, we were able to train my pup into a calm, clever and adaptable pup who now copes with being left at home for the length of any work shift day or night. To say Kylie went above and beyond is an understatement.........she not only helped with training advice but also aided in calming my anxiety in this process with patience and understanding no matter what my question was. In addition, she adapted her services to suit my requirements by offering training and walks mid-shift, which helped shape Zara into the calm, non-anxious, well-mannered dog that receives comments everywhere we go. As Zara settled into a routine, Sam was also able to continue helping me during long shifts, which meant her training was consistent. In addition, Sam created a strong bond with Zara, and they had a mutual adoration for each other, and it was clear she loved spending time with him. By the time Zara was 8-10 months, we were pretty much self-sufficient. Still, we continued with private sessions to further Zara's training and general fine-tuning and keep in touch with Kylie as she was a wonderful person who made such an impact on our lives. I felt with Kylie that she would always find a solution to any problem, and she was phenomenal support.
