Our popular puppy package is designed for puppies under 6 months of age.

Prevention before intervention! Learning how to communicate with your dog is crucial to a healthy relationship. It's no secret that puppies and precedents go paw in hand. Building solid foundations and fundamentals early on sets you and your new family member up for a life time of success..

We address all those typical behaviours that you are bound to experience when raising a young dog. Unexpected behaviours can develop as your puppy matures and is exposed to the world around them.

We have a wealth of knowledge and experience when it comes to training ex-street puppies that hail from abroad, puppies fresh from the breeder or adopted from the shelter as well as working lines. Regardless of your dogs origins, we will help guide both ends of the leash in the comfort of your own home and surroundings when it comes to dealing with:

    • Basic obedience
    • Teething, chewing and mouthing
    • Toilet training
    • Leash manners
    • Impulse control

What our clients are saying:

"Harlie is amazing. We do both group puppy class and 1:1 sessions with our 3 month old puppy. We love her training method because it focuses on ‘real life’ situations taught in a controlled environment. We start from the basic ideas and progressively apply it in different scenarios that mimic real life, such as not picking scraps off the floor or coming back to us on command even if she is playing excitedly. Harlie prepared a great starter pack for us as part of the private lessons, a detailed document explaining all the behaviours we could instil in our puppy, as well as creative methods we could use to teach them. In each session she shows us how to perform the command with our pup, and then gives plenty of advice when we try in regards to timing etc. Harlie’s genuine love for animals shows and brings out the best in the puppies! It is very clear that she has a comprehensive understanding of each dog breed and really tailors the training to that breed’s nature and personality, as well as the specific dog owners lifestyle. Harlie is also not only very knowledgeable about dog behaviour, but also canine nutrition which has been a big help for us as our puppy has developed some allergies. Harlie is fun to work with and inspires us to keep pushing the boundaries of training daily. All in all, with Harlie’s support we have a happy, well balanced and obedient puppy."
"When we decided to get a second dog, we knew that we wanted to set up proper foundations for training from the very beginning as our other dog (now 4 years old), as sweet and loving as she is, was never properly trained. We actually heard of Harlie through a pair of friends whose corgi had SEVERE separation anxiety. Before they started the training with Harlie, we witnessed them not be able to go anywhere without their dog and we could see how stressed they were. We also saw as they and their dog totally started to improve- they were less stressed and we could also visibly see that their dog was calmer when we went to visit them in person. They also could finally leave the dog alone at the house and attend get togethers without worrying about their dog barking and whining for hours. We knew that if Harlie could help them with their neurotic pup then she must be pretty damn good. So we booked the Nero Dog Training "Premium Puppy Package" before we even went to pick up our puppy. So far, we have had our initial consultation session and our follow up personal training session and I have been blown away by Harlie's professionalism and knowledge. I never worked with a personal dog trainer before, only experienced group puppy classes with our other dog, so I had no idea what to expect, but I really believe Harlie went above and beyond. Not only does she have all the little things like promptly answering emails addressing our puppy questions and concerns (and we had quite a few questions and concerns) and always showing up on time for our sessions, but she really took care to understand our dogs individually and cater a personal training plan to them. She followed up after our sessions and had us send on videos to find out what we were doing to give proper advice for our specific situations. I can't even imagine how many clients she has but she always remembered ours and our dogs names and came into our home for the training sessions warmly and with great positive energy and it felt like we had known her for ages.
On top of all that, which is a million times worth it in itself, her advice and training plan WORKS. Before meeting Harlie I thought that dog training was a one size fits all approach and that the tricks you read about in books or in YouTube videos should work on all dogs, but Harlie gave alternatives for common problems like barking and jumping that our puppy responded to a million times better and only took a couple of times to begin to understand. She also really dives into the "why" and the theory behind the training advice that she gives to help you understand how your dog's brain works.
Lastly, not only does Harlie do dog training, but she really works with you to make sure that you are giving your pup the proper lifestyle as well. She works with you on food and nutrition and explains the science behind why dogs need certain types of food. She is great to ask for advice on harnesses and any other dog related thing that you can imagine, and she always has a reason for why she recommends a product- she isn't sponsored by any company so you know that there isn't a ulterior motive when she recommends things. All in all, I can't recommend Harlie enough. I have already recommended her to some other friends who will be joining us for her puppy class and I am looking forward to being in a group setting and socializing our puppy while furthering our training."
"We found Nero Dog Training through a Facebook recommendation and loved every second of our training! Harlie is super energetic, enthusiastic and colourful. She really knows how to train a pup, grab a dog's attention and keep it during a whole session. Her training notes are very valuable and tailor-made which we found useful as it is very hard to find all in one. Thanks Harlie! Looking forward to follow ups and more Nero courses!"
"We got our first dog last year and contacted Harlie and Nero Dog Training to help us with all the challenges we assumed would come. We've done 1-2-1 and group trainings, and it's done absolute wonders. We've seen from others in the Nero Community that she can solve existing issues brilliantly, but it's also been great for us to have guidance and support to prevent issues occurring. With Harlie we've learned how to communicate with our canine, what type of training is key and develop a mutually loving relationship with our dog - a proud Nero graduate!"
"Harlie is a very competent trainer and a lovely person to work with. We've loved our experience with Nero Dog Training so far and have learned so much about how to raise our little girl thanks to the dedicated private puppy lessons. Harlie is obviously an animal lover and she could read Pepper’s attitude and personality almost immediately after we first met! She has loads of practical and applicable advices on how to create a solid bond with your little one. She is also very patient and goes beyond what’s expected to address our needs. We can’t wait to start puppy classes!"
"Harlie is a fantastic trainer! We have now completed both the puppy training (a must for new pup owners) and the 1:1 training. She listened to all our concerns with Marmite and was able to give us tailored advice that was specific to our little pup. He has come on leaps and bounds since we started working with her. She is so experienced in what she does, you always feel in safe hands when she is there. She gives out the most comprehensive training plans around and whenever someone tells us how well behaved our pup is we tell them it’s down to our kickass trainer. Could not recommend her highly enough!"
"Harlie is amazing at sensing situations and giving us pup owners the confidence that everything will be alright and that we can learn how to positively train our dogs. Our older dog did not take to our new puppy and with Harlie's help they are now best friends!"
"When my puppy Dona was growing I realized that I needed help, because I could not control/change her behaviour on several situations. That was the time I contacted Harlie. From the first meeting Dona loved her! Harlie is a great trainer and person. We discussed and she gave me a lot of answers to my questions and solutions how to train Dona. Her training approach really worked with us and I am glad I contacted Harlie!"
