Sniffy Sessions

Welcome to Sniffy Sessions, a unique opportunity for anxious dogs to explore a new environment in a safe and controlled manner. As an experienced dog trainer, I understand the importance of providing a calm and secure environment for dogs that may struggle with anxiety or fearfulness.

Our on-leash walks around part of our farm offer a one-on-one session with me, where your dog can explore new sights and smells without the added stress of encountering other off-leash dogs or unexpected distractions.

By offering a controlled and supportive environment, we can work together to help your dog build confidence and settle into their new surroundings.

Please note, this is not a photography session or an off-leash play session.

This is for you if:

You have an anxious dog who needs more work on-leash, but not in a group training environment.

This is NOT for you if:

You want your dog to run around off-leash or if your dog is able to pull you over and/or escapes their collar/harness.

Get ready for a fun filled session, we’ve got all the details covered so you and your dog can relax and have fun!



Secure your time and date for $25. Sessions are non-refundable but may be transferred to a different day/time with more than 24 hours notice.

Private and On-leash only

Your session gives you a private and on-leash only experience at our farm for 30 minutes.

Experienced Trainer

Your session will be attended by Sarina, who has spent years as a dog obedience trainer and Pets as Therapy trainer.

Relax and Have Fun!

There are lots of smells, fresh air and space to enjoy. A short session can offer lots of benefits and progress.

Yes! Dates are first come, first serve. This is a private property that we live on, so you aren't able to turn up without a booking.

The minimum requirement we ask is you can control your dog on a leash and your dog cannot escape your control. If your dog is unable to be leashed or controlled on a leash, this training is not suitable for you.

Yes! $25 is payable to book your session. This is a non-refundable fee that covers the booking process and session.

Your dog may not enjoy this session. We would recommend working with a trainer in a different location.

I will send you a guide on how to prepare for the day and I will be available to discuss any further details or questions you may have.

I am based in South Australia. The sessions take place on my private fenced property at Monteith. We have on-site parking and easy access to the paddock.

I will meet with you and your dog, we will have a chance to get acquainted and ensure everyone is comfortable and excited for the session! I will take you on a personally guided tour of the sniffy walk.

If you arrive early, please wait for me to greet you at the carport.

We only have limited times available, we ask that you respect your booking time and try to arrive on time. If you arrive late, you may miss part or all of your session. If you think you will be late, please let us know so we can let you know if we can achieve your session or reschedule you on another day.

The weather will be closely monitored coming up to a session and will be rescheduled if the weather is looking wet and/or stormy. I will be in contact with you prior to your session and discuss this with you, as I'm happy to run the session in light rain, if you would prefer.

We only take a small fee to cover the booking and reserving your time with us, so there are no refunds. If you give us 48 hours notice you cannot make your session, we can offer 1 reschedule.

No, we offer no guarantees on the outcome from your session and cannot give any fixes or magic cures!

My name is Sarina. I live in a completely mad-house on a farm just outside of the Adelaide Hills. It's a beautiful (but crazy!) place I share with my husband and our dogs, cats, birds, chickens, ducks and more! I am an award winning photographer in both Local, Australia and International Photography competitions. I have a degree in Visual Arts and Photography. I've also spent 7 years as a volunteer Pets as Therapy trainer and dog trainer.
