Canine companion was established in 2009.

Consultations and training are done at your home for both your convenience and your dog's.

Being in their familiar home environment your dog will feel more comfortable to learn, thereby increasing learning speed. It also affords them the ability to learn at their own pace as necessary and for their usual or typical behaviour/s to be seen.

By the end of the session your best friend will be better trained or on their road to improvement or recovery. You will also understand how to help them as they continue to improve.

Depending on the overall severity or complexity it typically takes a few days to a few weeks for the behaviour/s to disappear. In most cases however an almost immediate improvement is obvious. Training is repeated as necessary.

More can be covered during one-on-one training so most often fewer repeat sessions are necessary.

Just like we do, our dogs have different backgrounds, accumulated experiences, preferences and fears. These are some of the things that affect behaviour and learning. Each session is therefor structured to benefit your individual dog or puppy, focusing one what they most need help with.

Kitten & Puppy Haven

Kitty and Puppy Haven is a pro-life sanctuary started in 2000 with the sole purpose of rescuing neglected, abused and abandoned animals. Most of our cases originate from veterinary practices, low income areas, other welfare organizations (that work in the townships and squatter-camps) or from emergency rescues. While animal rescue and rehabilitation is a priority, educating people on correct animal care is critical.
