We can help you to quickly  become a stress-free owner with a relaxed, well-trained and safe dog that gets along well with other people and other dogs.

Socially undesired behaviours like pulling on lead, jumping on visitors, excessive barking and separation anxiety as well as potentially dangerous ones such dog-to-dog aggression, guarding food and chasing bicycles or horses are often the result of uncertainty, fear, distress and confusion caused by one or more of the following reasons:

  • Poor genes.
  • Early training from 3-8 weeks by the breeder and then from 8-14 weeks by the new owner which was either nonexistent, insufficient or of an incorrect and inappropriate type.
  • No appropriate continued education during adolesence and adulthood.
  • A dog being confused by unrealistic expectations and inconsistencies within the immediate family - such as using different words and hand signals.
  • Boredom due to lack of sufficient daily mental and physical exercise.
  •  A single unpleasant event – such as a dog attack or physical abuse - that results in a dog being fearful of certain places, breeds of dogs or people.
  •  Poor diet and inappropriate feeding habits.
  •  An undiagnosed medical complaint – such as toothache, tumours, back problems, pinched nerves.
  •  Losing a family member or another household pet

Since 2001 we have been assisting owners in South East Queensland to provide the guidance and leadership necessary for their adolescent or adult dogs to develop impulse control and to become calm, emotionally stable and well trained family pets. If your dog is not yet an ideal dog we can help. It is never too late for to catch up and teach him or her new behaviours and to change old undesired ones

  • Show and practice the steps to loose lead walking and proper 'heeling'.
  • Explain and demonstrate how playing games can make training easy and fun for both you and your dog.
  • Show you how to easily incorporate training into daily life.
  • Provide you with on-going home training exercises.
  • Loan you cutting-edge training videos & booklets.
  • Recommend further good videos, books and websites so that you continue to stay on track.
  • Follow up after the in-home session to make sure that progress is being made and answer your questions.

It was extremely practical, easy to follow and we could see results immediately! All the extra information provided afterwards was also extremely helpful. The difference it has made to our two dogs has been phenomenal!"

On 1/7/13 Ms A. Andrew of Cannon Hill, owner of a 7 month old Cavoodle, wrote, "I was very impressed that you hit the ground running! Illustrations to help explain concepts were very useful.
