The North Mandurah Pet Hotel Boarding Kennels is the dream come true for owner/operators Simon and Steph Gibson.
Situated in just East of Mandurah, 2 km from the freeway, in Western Australia, the Pet Hotel is not only a boarding kennel, but is also the home of "For Life" Dog Training School, and the Gaitmaster German and Australian Shepherds.
After 20 years of working in animal industries Simon and Steph opened the North Mandurah Pet Hotel Boarding Kennels and Dog Training School in 1991.
The Gibson's live on site with their tribe of dogs, cats and birds. Simon and Steph have been notable competitors in dog sports since the mid 1980's, producing some of Australia's top performing dogs in 5 different disciplines. This passion is yours to cash in on.
Be it for away from home care, rehabilitation of behavioral problems, training to competition standard, or starting the new family pet off with positive guidance for the whole family, you can count on the Gibson's life experience to be just what you and your pet need.
The Pet Hotel offers distinctly different housing for both large and small pets styled on breed requirements. Kennels for large to medium breeds are double sized at 62m with a brick kennel and long run. Each kennel and run is fully covered. There is also over 1000 2 m of open, free run exercise yards for dogs in this section for outside free time.
Small and elderly pets are housed indoors and away from the larger dogs. Various sized pens indoors allow for 1 to 4 small dogs, so that ''mates" can stay together just like at home. Outside are shaded, lawned exercise yards allow for frequent group romps, or individual use as your pet prefers.
All dogs must have a current vaccination certificate. Clients are advised to book early for Christmas and Easter to avoid disappointment. A deposit is required for any school holiday period. Book early for school holiday periods to avoid disappointment.
Inspection is welcome on appointment.
"THE AIM OF FOR LIFE DOG TRAINING SCHOOL IS TO INCREASE THE JOY OF OWNER AND PET RELATIONSHIPS, THEREBY ASSURING A LONG AND HAPPY LIFE FOR ALL DOGS."
Over the years Steph has attended many Clinics, both in Australia and overseas, given by some of the worlds most renowned dog trainers. She has also organized for many of these trainers to come to WA to give clinics.
The "For Life" Dog Training School is situated on the Gibson's 5 acres. It's fenced, private and free from wandering strays, safe for dogs of all ages.
Purpose built schoolrooms can be used for both day and night training, and open out onto a large fenced, safe, lawned arena where off leash training can be safely performed.
Early Puppy Training, basic home Good Manners, behavioral problems, and Obedience & Herding at Trial Standard are all catered for. Owners are taught how to train their own dogs, and how to keep the good behavior up. Lessons include theory as well as practical hands on instruction. Understanding 'how' your dog learns, is the first step to a successful and mutually enjoyable experience.
Puppy and Good Manners classes are positive based to keep it fun and rewarding for both owner and dog. For those wishing to compete, Clicker Training and Operant Conditioning are Steph's specialties. These methods are essential to achieve the precise positions and happy work required for today's Trial winners.
Steph has training to help you with your reactive (aggressive) dog. Using biology and positive training, these unhappy dogs are rewired to accept and relax in the proximity of other dogs.
Steph can help you deal with reactivity and the other difficult behavioral problems that other trainers won't deal with, or are unsuccessful with. All can be managed by any owner who wants to put in the hard yards for their pet.
