Dog training has been part of my life since I was very young. As the saying goes “Turn your hobby into your job and you never work another day in your life”. This is exactly what I have done.
I have had dogs all my life and always had a passion for training them. I turned that passion into my professional career. While I served in the Australian Army, I was a Police dog handler. After leaving the Army I opened my own dog training business which I operated for several years in Port Macquarie. From there I moved to Sydney to work as a Quarantine detector dog handler a Sydney Airport. After leaving this job I returned to Port Macquarie to continue working as a professional dog trainer.
The experience and skills I gained doing these jobs gives me the knowledge to deal a wide range of dog temperaments and enabled to develop a diverse range of training techniques.
What temperaments do I deal with?
In short all of them, one of my main focuses is dealing with reactive dogs and helping them become a well balanced member of society. With my background of being or former Military Police Dog Handler I am very comfortable dealing with all temperament's including high level reactivity. When you understand where that aggression is coming from we can devise a plan to fix it.
What do I do different?
What I do different than some other trainers is communicate on a level with dogs that they understand and respond to. There are several ways in which trainers will aim to teach your dog and unfortunately some of them are not very effective in real world scenario's. I will use food rewards in some training situations like training very young dogs but it is not something I rely to get results. I feel that if train a dog correctly and have a bond with them they will want to work for you and need food to do it. I use training methods that adapt to each dog and the specific thing we are working on. This is vital as one method doesn't suit all dogs.
What training do I offer?
- One on one- Group obedience training with puppies and dogs over 6 months
The personal sessions are designed to cater for any specific issues you want fix or skills that you want to teach your dog.
