Behavioural Training

Is your dog barking and lunging at other dogs or people on walks? Struggling when left alone? Had a bad experience and is now afraid?

RollyCanine Behavioural Training is ideal for dogs that have more challenging behaviour which needs addressing. We understand that it can be exhausting and frustrating owning a dog with behavioural issues.

We work with a large range of dogs with lots of different behavioural issues. Whether your dog has had a bad experience, or has become increasingly hard to manage as they get older, we are here to help. For dogs that have more serious behavioural issues, our Board & Train program may be better suited.

Examples of behavioural issues that we can help with:

  • Aggression towards dogs or people
  • Separation anxiety 
  • Reactive behaviour (barking and lunging)
  • Anxious/fearful behaviour 
  • Resource guarding
  • Issues within the household
Here at Rolly Canine, we specialise in dogs with serious behavioural issues. We believe there’s no such thing as a “bad dog” or a dog that can’t be helped. 
While genetics do play a role in some cases, we can still help your dog learn to be comfortable and well-mannered in the real world. Some dogs may never enjoy playing with other dogs, or meeting new people, but they can learn to navigate life without feeling the need to lash out and react negatively. 


Our private training packages consist of 4x private training sessions over the duration of 4 weeks. These sessions are at a set time each week.

"My girl had many different issues that we were struggling to face the world, she was so scared & reactive to everything outside & she was destroying everything in my home. I had a different trainer with no success & no doggy daycare would take her.... Along came Shaun who was an angel & a blessing in disguise. Hes honest, upfront & put me in my place politely (which I needed). He was just amazing. Shadows life has changed dramatically, we go walking & even to doģgy day care. I couldnt have done it without him. Thanks Shaun"
"Absolutely the best dog trainers! I have been through so many with our reactive girl gsd and everything seemed hopeless until I found them. She is now able to socialise with other dogs and play calmly and i can finally enjoy walks with her without stress. Thank you so much guys i cant be any more grateful"
"Shaun was great to work with. He really helped us understand our reactive boy and work on techniques to overcome negative outcomes. Non judgemental, understanding, down to earth and very knowledgeable. Would highly recommend Shaun and Rolly canine!"
