Waist Deep

Happy Kelpie and German Shepherd

Upon successful conclusion of the Toe Dipper we will schedule 3 further visits to the Brainery to ensure that your student is able to make the best of their time with us and have the best time possible.


When we're Waist Deep we start to see how well a student is able to settle in and how well they are able to fit into our program.

We keep you up-to-date with each visit as we monitor your students progress. Should there be any signs to indicate deeper immersion to be detrimental, we will raise them with you and propose a plan accordingly.

COST: $300

Payment is made in advance for each attendance


When your student graduates the Waist Deep phase, you now have a happy Fooligan! Ready to enjoy the full benefits of the Brainery!

It is at this point that your student will have earned a permanent space on the Brainery Bus, enter into the development curriculum and enjoy the full benefits of the Brainery Program!

You also receive access to the Barefoot Paws Academy. This is your private community where you can meet with other students families, enjoy training tips, advice and other valuable content for you only.

COST: $100 per day

Payment is made in advance of each attendance

Two dogs running and having fun

Our puppy Sydney was becoming a handful at home. A friend told me about Barefoot paws. I contacted Stu at barefoot Paws and had a quick response and was able to book Syd in for a weekly visit to the farm. Since this time we have not looked back. Syd absolutely loves his days on the farm and with Stu! He is so happy to go and content for days following his visits. When I’m at work I feel happy knowing he is happy and having a great day whilst doing some learning along the way. Stu is lovely and very approachable. I highly recommend his services. Thank you 🙏

Could not recommend Stu and his programs highly enough. Our boy Ted was an anxious, mischievous and high energy pup that needed a lot of training and somewhere to exhaust his energy. Stu’s program was the perfect answer to this, Ted would have a day of training and play, Stu provided him with an environment where he could fully step in to his breed, in return we had a trained and happy pup ready for a big night of sleep after a day at the Learnery. Thank you Stu !

Stu and the Barefoot Paws experience is amazing. My boy Harry does the Brainery once a week and I rest easy knowing he has lived his best life for the day and comes home ready to chill. Pick up and drop off service a game changer too. Highly recommend.

Our Betty used to go mental when she saw other dogs, so badly that we started walking her at night just to avoid the constant lead tug-o-war and antisocial excitement she would excude with other dogs and people. We can now walk her like a regular dog and enjoy her,,,, in the daylight with others!. I have cried literal happy tears! This investment has brought peace and harmony to our family and beautiful labradore, Betty loves loves her days at the farm and all her new canine besties. Thanks so much to Stu and the team at Barefoot Paws! PS. The photos and videos you send when she's at the farm are so awesome!
