Experienced & Accredited Dog Trainers

 The foundation of our teaching methods revolves around teaching owners to develop a balanced relationship with their dog. This relationship will help create a faithful loving companion. Whether it be puppy classes or dealing with difficult dogs we can help.

Dogs are as individual as their owners and consequently training strategies can be developed specifically for yours dogs age, breed and circumstances.  Join the hundreds (maybe thousands?) of happy dog owners we have helped over the years. 

Puppy Training - classes or home visits

Our trainers will teach new puppy owners how to get the most from their pups and set you off on the right path to having a really well adjusted, happy well mannered dog. Discount available for class and a home visit.

Dog Training - classes or home visits

Jumping Up, barking, pulling on the lead, recall, separation anxiety – we can help! We are highly qualified and experienced – there pretty much nothing we haven’t seen or helped people with!

We can help you get you become accredited to visit your local age facility or hospital. We also work closely with the Centre for Therapy and Service Dogs Australia, helping train dogs for people with special needs including seizure alert.

Training Methods

Many people say that their dog was too stubborn or slow, or hyper to teach – we say you haven’t found the stimulus to encourage them to do things for you, with easy dogs to teach that can simply be food but that doesn’t work for all…

Dogs provide:
