Foundation Building

The foundation building program is aimed at those who are looking to progress further with their K9 companions. You will be provided with the necessary knowledge and skills needed to master training methods which will ensure the continued advancement of your canine training.
The program focuses on developing you as the trainer. Direct K9 Services can provide advanced training to assist in the development of new and complex skills similar to the skills of professional canines, such as:
  • Strict obedience
  • Assistance skills/tasks
  • Nose works
  • Tracking
  • Free shaping


Foundation Building Program is priced at $150 per hour or $250 per hour for two dogs. After your initial consult and training plan has been set, follow up consultation pricing will depend on services required (generally reduced).
  • Get In Touch
  • Dog Assessment
  • Further Consultation

Get in contact with Direct K9 Services via or via mobile on 0451 824 278. A trainer will contact you for a phone consultation and conduct a preliminary evaluation specific to your dog’s personal environment and circumstances. If you decide our services are for you, an appointment that fits your schedule will be made.

A trainer will attend your home or location of choice, conduct an assessment of your dog and its behaviours, and provide an individualised and tailored training plan; this plan includes phone and email support afterwards.

If further consultation is required, a trainer will revisit and work with both you and your dog until the behaviour is corrected.
