Playful Paws: Training and Wellness is excited to launch different events occuring in 2018!

Ever looked at someone with their pet looking adoringly at them, and listening to what they are asking? And thought to yourself – I want that to be me!! Our events pair with other local companies to bring you fun, interactive and informative events where you will not only form a stronger bond with your dog, but also meet other like-minded doggy people. Be the person that others wish to be.

Do you value spending quality time with your dog? Do you also like dreaming and self development? Want to understand how your dog thinks?

Our PAWS Retreat is a weekend away focusing on you and your best friend. Surrounded with like minded people and grow as a person.

Weekend may include:

  • Guest speakers
  • Social events
  • Understanding how you think and create goals and motivation
  • Build a stronger relationship with your dog
  • Meet other like-minded doggy people


Our PAWS Retreat is open for up to 10 dog and person couples! Please note that your dog will need to be social and happy to be around other dogs, people and in different environments.

What to bring

  • A flat collar, head halter or chest harness and a regular leash (no extender leads!)
  • Lots of high value treats (cut as small as ½ your pinkie nail) - don’t be too stingy!
  • Sunscreen
  • Picnic blanket
  • Other items depending on where we are headed
  • Dog food

Setting up your puppy with skills for life.


Puppies are sponges for experience and learning - even the things we would prefer they didn’t learn!

Dreaming of a dog that you can take anywhere? The first 16 weeks of your puppy’s life is crucial for creating the way they look and associate with the world.

We are excited to bring you this NEW initiative

This twelve week course will give your puppy or teenager a kick start to learning new skills, all while you work. You will drop off your puppy and they will be with up to 7 other puppies learning:

  • Social skills - how to play with other puppies
  • 1:1 time with accredited trainer
  • Learning to settle in a crate
  • House training - teach your dog where to go to the toilet
  • Meeting other dogs calmly
  • Teach your puppy to sit and drop
  • Naughty behaviours - creating a calm and happy puppy. Some of the behaviours we target:
    • Chewing
    • Jumping up
    • Mouthing
    • Scratching
    • Over-excitability

Puppy Kinder is held with a maximum of 8 puppies per session 

This is a twelve week program with 1 session a week.

  • Please note that this is NOT a substitute for teaching you how to train your puppy - but is complimentary


What to bring

  • A flat collar, head halter or chest harness and a regular leash (no extender leads!)
  • Your puppies favourite toy


From 12 weeks

Tuesday Wednesday or Thursday 8am - 1pm, $50 per session

Hi, I’m Megs Hopman – Founder of Playful Paws: Training & Wellness (Playful Paws). Through professional and personal experience, I’ve developed an appreciation for individuality. I understand that every dog, or person, is different – and it’s important for an Animal Behavioural Specialist to develop a training plan around this individuality. I love meeting new people, and their fur best friend, and finding how to bring out the best in each partnership. The saying ‘dogs are like their owners’ doesn’t fall too short from me.
