A BETTER DOG IS JUST DAYS AWAY
Does your dog pull on the lead or forgets to listen to even the most basic commands? Does she come when called? Maybe your dog is aggressive or anxious around other dogs or people. You’re not alone and this is where we come in. Our Stay n’ Train dog training courses have been designed to address some of the most common issues facing dogs and their owners and have proven and lasting results in a relatively short space of time for a happier dog and a happier you.
After assessment of your dog’s individual needs, we will recommend one of our 2 courses, each of which offers daily lessons with our expert trainers working together towards their pre-agreed learning outcomes and to reinforce your dog’s new behaviours. The course will last 20 or 30 days – depending on the number or type of behavioural changes your dog needs our help with. Your dog will stay in comfortable onsite accommodation in our renowned pet hotels.
Our commitment to you and your dog doesn’t end when the training course finishes. You’ll receive an extensive departure lesson with our trainers and 20% off follow up home dog training lessons.

- Toilet training
- Crate or Bed training

WHAT OTHERS ARE SAYING
Meet Thor – Cattle Cross Kelpie, Age 5
Stay n’ Train 20
Mum Crystal has been caring for Thor since he was 10 weeks old. Now, five, this Cattle Cross Kelpie is the cheekiest, most stubborn dog ever. Unfortunately, when he was three years old, Mum’s house was broken into and Thor was badly beaten. Crystal sought help from Hanrob Dog Training Academy, and booked Thor in for Stay n’ Train 20 – during which he spent quality time, daily, with his trainer Helen.
“When we first met Thor, he reminded me of a Canine Hannibal Lecter. Muzzled up, securely restrained on a tight lead and looking for a way that he could get free in order to be able to eat us,” recalls Helen. “His family advised us that he had always been protective of Crystal, however after the home break in, that protectiveness increased to a level that was no longer manageable and became aggressive to not only people but dogs as well. Whilst his body had healed well, unfortunately his mind hadn’t.”
During his time at Hanrob, Helen worked to change Thor’s emotional state. “Science tells us that while he was in that stressed, highly aroused state his body would be flooded with stress hormones and no learning could occur. That was achieved by making his environment as small and predictable as possible. No pressure, regular visits to his pen.” After a continual schedule of reinforcement, building on Thor’s obedience, always with calm, confident and assertive handling, Helen slowly started introduing him to new people and then dogs.
“We were completely informed during Thor’s stay with phone calls, photos and videos nearly every day,” says Crystal. “Helen achieved so much in the time he was there, he has come home a completely different dog. He plays with Loki (miniature dachshund) and reacts better to people and other dogs. We wanted Thor to come back as the dog he used to be before the incident and he certainly has. His loving self is back.”
“We were given things to continue to do at home during the departure lesson, with a book to guide us through. Plus, having day refresher sessions available to us is a massive help.”
Not all dogs need this level of training and, at Hanrob Dog Training Academy, we will tailor our approach according to the outcomes required. Plus, with excellent on-site facilities and some of Australia’s most experienced educators, we can – and will – make a real difference to your dog’s quality of life.
