'I would highly recommend CLEAR Dog Training to others in need. We found the training to be highly effective and Scout has been a completely different dog ever since. The advice that we were given is invaluable - nutrition advice was a break through for us. We will get a 'refrehser' in 3-6 months to make sure we are still on the right track. Thank you!!'

'This way of training not always saying NO! & teaching what to do instead is more enjoyable for dog & trainer.'



Dr C. F (PhD), Delta Accredited Canine Good Citizen Instructor, Chief Instructor Gold Coast Dog Obedience Club - 28/4/2004

'I first met Oliver Beverly in 1999 when he participated in training activities at my dog club. I have since encountered him at many training and behaviour seminars around the country. Oliver is a keen student of the latest in positive methods of animal training and I would feel very happy in recommending anyone to consult with him about training or problem behaviours. He has the dog's best interests at heart and the knowledge to resolve problems without resorting to the excessive punishment that characterizes most old-style approaches to dog training.'

Dr R. Q, BVSc (Hons), Veterinarian in 2004 at a large 24 hour Brisbane vet hospital

'I have known Mr Beverly for two years in a number of different capacities including:

  • As a client with my own dog at C.L.E.A.R Dog Training
  • As this Veterinary Hospital's dog trainer referral of choice
  • As a fellow colleague participating in Continuing Education Behavioural Conferences

I have the highest regard for Mr Beverly both as a skilled professional and a person of integrity. It is my observation and professional experience that he possesses many strengths and attributes including the following:

  • Strong and consistent client focus
  • High-level competency and knowledge
  • High level of communication skills
  • Openness to new information and a strong commitment to continuing education
  • Knowledge and experience in up-to-date, approved methods of dog training and handling.

Mr Beverly has developed respect from the local veterinary profession as he works excellently with owners, animals and the profession to allow for ideal management of our suburban dog community. He is an accredited Delta Canine Good Citizen Instructor and has completed further studies in Behavioural Dog Training. This theoretical study and extensive dog training experience in my opinion make him one of the most valuable and expert dog trainers in the area.'

To Whom It May Concern

"It is a pleasure to write a testimonial in regard to Oliver Beverly and C.L.E.A.R. Dog Training. I was looking for a puppy preschool after attending an ill run puppy school here on the Sunshine Coast. Priorities for me were a positive environment for puppy and handler, an instructor who knew how to run a puppy class without compromising the social development of a very young dog and who taught how to raise a puppy in a positive way.

Oliver was recommended to me and after initial contact I made the 200 kilometre round trip from Buderim to our first class in Brisbane. I was not disappointed. As well as being fun, Oliver’s puppy classes are carefully designed to ensure that new owners are taught what to expect from a young pup and how to handle normal puppy behavior. This knowledge helps arm a new puppy owner with understanding and skills for a smooth transition through puppy hood. The clicker is introduced, positive basic training introduced and most importantly pups learn to socialize with other puppies and humans.

Obstacles such as swing doors, prams, umbrellas, basic agility equipment are also a part of Oliver’s puppy classes. This type of equipment encourages puppy awareness helping to build confidence and, of course, the agility equipment is a lot of fun.

I found Oliver to be a warm, caring, extremely knowledgeable person who has devoted many years to helping people raise their pups to become well adjusted canine citizens in today’s society. Oliver also actively assists in bringing to Queensland world renowned, positive, dog trainers to lecture in their areas of expertise so we all can benefit from their knowledge.

Being a breeder I have absolutely no hesitation at all in recommending C.L.E.A.R. Dog training to my puppy buyers.

Kind regards

Michele Izzard"
