  • Do you have a dog that you’d love to take to Doggy Daycare, but they are unsuited to a daycare environment?
  • Is your dog struggling with a behavioural issue and cannot commit to overnight stays? Or are you wanting more for your dog at daycare than just constant play with other dogs? If this sounds like you, then you and your dog could benefit from our Day Stay and Train Program.

Operating out of Tara Estate Boarding Kennels, our Day Stay and Train Program offers a structured day of learning for your dog in a safe and secure training facility under the guidance of our qualified and experienced team of trainers. Our training programs are adapted to suit the needs of each individual dog and we welcome dogs of all breeds, ages, and behavioural problems.


  • Face to face assessment with Sidney Aarons to discuss issues and desired outcomes.
  • For every 3rd lesson your dog receives, you will receive a 30-minute lesson with one of our behaviourists to learn how to maintain your dog’s training when at home and in public to ensure consistency and the best possible outcome for both you and your dog.
  • Additional training/welfare updates when requested.
  • Hours of playtime with the other daycare attendees. (must be assessed before being allowed to join the group


Behavioural problems can vary from mild to severe in each dog and the learning process can vary from dog to dog. To address this, our counter-conditioning programs are specifically tailored to meet every issue and individual. Our training program entails the following:

  • Sidney’s purpose-based training system focuses on teaching your dog the difference between right and wrong, while removing unwanted behaviours and replacing them with functional behaviours.
  • Dogs are trained twice a day Monday – Friday.
  • The length of each training session will vary depending your dog’s temperament, previous experience, age, and his/her ability to concentrate and take on new commands and The longer your dog is training with us, the better they will become. The average length of each training session is 30 to 40 minutes.
  • Dogs are trained at the kennels. Training is also conducted in and around Canberra. This is called the generalisation process and is done to ensure that your dog will behave in different places and scenarios.
  • Dogs will also be exposed to our state-of-the-art Agility Circuit aimed at boosting your dog’s confidence. All the training equipment has either been designed and/or manufactured by Sidney to ensure safe and highly effective training results. We regularly change and add new equipment to ensure variation and motivation.


Sidney’s experience in dog training spans over 30 years and includes pet obedience, behavioural problems, competition and working dogs including Seach and Rescue, Arson and currency detection, Special Forces and Police tactical units. He has also trained and been mentored by some of the world’s foremost experts in Canine behaviour and has extensively studied dog psychology and physiology. Over the years, he has seen firsthand what training techniques do and don’t work.

Sidney has applied his experience and extensive theoretical knowledge to develop a balanced training program that focuses on clear verbal and physical communication between the dog and the trainer. In a time where training methods are extremely varied and argued about, you can be assured the Sidney’s methods produce the best results.
