Puppy Training / Dog Training Principles

dog training auckland

At Barkley Manor we recognise that your dog is part of your family and we passionately want to support you both enjoying life together. Whether adding some day time dog training with one of our in-house dog training staff, having some fun together in one of the weekend dog training classes / night time dog training classes or a one on one dog training program, we help guide you through everyday doggy “challenges” and create a life that suits you and your dog

Our dog training & puppy training principles are based on you and your dog having a positive relationship where your dog does as you wish because it wants to, rather than because it has to. Why? A dog that looks up to its owner and therefore wants to please its owner is a reliable happy dog. Dogs that are physically forced into compliance live lives full of unhappiness, stress and anxiety, a space that is counter-productive to learning. 

Day Time Dog Training

Our on staff dog trainers use positive methods of reinforcement and through mixture of tasks and Canine Enrichment processes we teach your dog commands using ‘muscle memory’ so they have a base level of understanding to then use at home / out and about.

NIGHT / weekend classes

We offer a variety of dog training classes, from traditional dog obedience, dog enrichment and dog agility classes - but we limit dog training groups to smaller numbers of 6 - 8,  to maximise learning experience for all. Families and couples are encouraged to join in. Lots of dog training games and off lead activity to ensure both you and your dog have fun!

Whether a ‘start for success’ or a ‘need a refresh’ , our collective of specialist dog trainers and dog behaviourists have pretty much seen it all and want to share their dog training experience and passion to help you and your dog lead the best life together. Whether training at home or out and about we come and spend time with you and your family at a time that suits you.
