Behaviour and Training Services For Your Pet
We work with all animals on all problems!
Are they displaying undesirable behaviour or doing something they’re not supposed to? The Urban Herd has a team of qualified training specialists who can work with your pet to correct any behavioural issue. From digging, howling, biting, kicking, aggression, lead pulling, reactivity or separation anxiety, we will tailor a positive re-enforcement program to help your pet overcome any problem.
What Programs Do We Offer?
We get results every time.
Starting from basic dog obedience and puppy skills, to more complex species problems, we offer an effective and holistic approach to ensure we really get to the root of your pet’s issue.
We will come to your home and complete a full behavioural assessment of your pet in their own environment, looking at specific species’ needs as well as individual behaviour profiles. Then, our professional team will facilitate a tailored plan for your pet and be present throughout the whole process should your animal’s needs change.
Some of the Programs we include:
- Behavioural Modification Session
- Puppy Arrival Consults
- Rescue Dog Settle-in Session
- Separation Anxiety Management
- Pre travel Anxiety Reduction Programs
- Reactive Animal Training Program
- Loose Leash Walking
- Nutritional Behaviour Consultation
- Crate Training
- Enrichment Programs
But My Pet’s Needs Are Unique?
We understand that every animal is different, which is why we don’t believe in a ‘one method fits all’ approach.
Instead, we draw on many years of both domestic and wild behavioural work to best fit the program to suit your pet’s specific needs.
Our team has resolved some of the most complex problems, including over preening, screeching, self-mutilation, and an inability to shed skin (just to name a few!).
No behavioural issue is too complex- we love a challenge!
Urban Herd in Action!
Anna knows so much cool stuff about the entire animal kingdom, being a zoologist. Her care is considered and informed, and she communicates very clearly so I am more confident around Lenny.
Anne has also given me some 1-1 lessons on training Lenny which have been really, really good and excellent value for money.

Anna came into our home with no judgement toward us and the way we had been doing things. She spent over an hour with me getting to know more about Kevin, his history, our interactions with him, the food he ate - basically everything!
She came back to me with an incredible plan to help him settle into our lives and equipped us with so many tools that resulted in him now being the friendliest, happiest dog at the dog park. His obedience improved exponentially and I couldn't be happier with his progress.
I cannot recommend Anna highly enough and have passed on her details to others who have had similar wonderful results with their own animals.
