Unit 9

281 Station Road

Yeerongpilly.

 

We are directly opposite the road from World Gym which is on the same street as Yeerongpilly Train Station.  We are behind Andonis Café. We have indoor air-conditioned facilities as well as large grassed fields that are set away from people, dogs and traffic. Return to our homepage here.

Q: I have an old dog that has never done any dog training before, is that okay?

Absolutely, it’s a complete myth that you can’t teach an old dog new tricks. If you would feel more comfortable, you could start with private training. 

Q: How old does my puppy need to be to start Puppy Preschool?

You want to start as soon as possible, the sooner the better. Your puppy just needs to be 8 weeks or older by week 2 and have had their first vaccination. Check out our puppy preschool here.

Q: Can we make a request for a topic on your dog training blog?

We would love that! Please email your ideas to info@furgetmenot.com.au  

You can view what we have already covered here. 

Q: I just adopted a rescue dog and have no idea what I am doing, can you help?

We sure can, we even offer a free session to help get you started. Check out how it works here. 

Q: Why wouldn’t we just go to our local Dog Obedience Training Club in Brisbane?

Obedience is generally just about following commands perfectly.  Most people actually want more than that, they want a well-mannered dog and an amazing relationship with their dog. We do cover obedience but also so much more. Check out our Basic Manners class here.

Q: What reactive dog training do you offer?

Our trainer Cassandra has had advanced level of training and skills in rehabilitating reactive dogs. We offer a reactive dog course or can provide private training.

Q: Why would I not do the puppy school at my vet or local pet store?

A lot of these are run by staff. Which is like you going to a psychologist and the receptionist providing you with counselling.  A lot of these also use outdated methods and are not certified force free. Plus we offer an advanced puppy school here. 

Q: What is different about your canine training school?

Our classes are small e.g. max 5 dogs, our training centre is air conditioned, we are certified as force free, we are positive and support to both the dog and the human and we teach your dog to problem solve and make good choices rather than just listen to your commands. If you would like to know more contact us here. 

Q: How much does a Dog Trainer cost?

Prices vary across dog training services in Brisbane and so does quality of service. We only offer the highest quality of service to your dog but are commitment to keeping our prices reasonable and affordable. Our private training starts at $110 per hour. Read more about our trainer here. 

Q: What is your favourite dog enrichment toy?

That is a hard one! There are so many, but we only sell and recommend the ones we love. View our recommendations here. 

Q: Do you offer dog day care?

No we don’t, we think that the dog day care model is too much for most dogs. So we offer day training instead, which you can check out here.

Q: Do you have any classes that are Clicker Training and Dog Tricks?

Yes, we sure do, our class is called Shape, Solve and Roll. Which is a really fun but also great for teaching your dog exceptional listening and problem-solving skills.

View more here. 

Q: Why don’t you offer free puppy classes?

We have trialled doing some free puppy classes but unfortunately we would get lots of enrolments and would then have only one poor lonely puppy show up so we offer free puppy and adolescent playgroups for our current students instead now.

Q: Do I always have to give you keys?

A: No that’s completely up to you and what you are comfortable with. We will work with whatever you are comfortable with. We can always collect or interact with your dog in the yard. Remember, we are fully insured and have had a background check and we will send you a copy.

Q: Is the meet ‘n’ greet free?

A: The initial consultation (meet ‘n’ greet) is FREE and there is no obligation to book services. We want you and your dog to be completely comfortable with our dog trainer.

Q: What happens in an emergency? 

A: We will design an emergency plan and agreement as part of the initial consultation.

Q: What kind of dogs can attend Fur Get Me Not?

A: We care for all dogs. We are skilled and experienced with all breeds and sizes. Unfortunately, we do need to exclude banned breeds as defined by the Council. We do not provide training for any dogs with serious aggression issues unless they are under the care of a qualified behavioural vet. We can help you to organise this and will work alongside them to get maximum improvement in your dog’s behaviour.

 

Q: Will we still have a dog walker in poor weather?

A: We will walk your dog even when you won’t! Rain does not stop us; cold weather doesn’t stop us and neither does the heat. Your pets’ health and well-being when dog walking is our utmost concern so, although rare, we won’t walk in a storm or extreme weather. However, we can still exercise and enrich your dog undercover or offer an alternative time or day. Therefore, we try and organise a time slot so that we have flexibility to keep an eye on the weather and walk your dog at the best time of the day. You can read more about our dog walking here.

Q: How do I know what you did with my dog?

A: We utilise an app that tracks the GPS of our trainers. This app will email you a map, photos and notes after every service.

Q: Do you have insurance?

A: Yes. We are fully insured, and we can send you a copy of our insurance certificate.

Q: What payment options do you offer?

A: We prefer an electronic transfer and credit card payments.  Please pay for your service in advance.

Q: What is your cancellation policy?

A: In order to best serve your needs, the strict cancellation policy is subject to a 24-hour cancellation period for visiting services.  We do, however, understand that occasionally you or your dog may be sick and need to cancel on the morning of your service. In these cases, there will be no charge if you let us know with at least one hour’s notice.

All classes and private training cannot be cancelled, transferred or rescheduled.

Yes, we sure do. Check them out here.
