privatelessonSituation critical !!!
Mark helped our 3.5-year-old Staffy X Kelpie who has showed anti social behaviour and aggression towards other animals, since she was a pup.
I have tried many trainers and methods, mostly of the positive rewards based training, which were not showing any signs of behaviour change.
Thanks to Mark we now house the Staffy with a Maltese Shitzu and been able to adapt the training to help both dogs with behaviour adjustments.
I have given Mark two videos of the Ulu, the first was approaching a house across the street 50m away where a dog lived, the second is one month after training with Mark.
I could not recommend Mark highly enough.

Train your dog for real life situations and locations
Train your dog for real life situations and environments. In other words the real world. Not the confines of a structured group class. You train your dog on days and times that suit you. You can choose to either focus on loose leash walking with distractions, or book an entire obedience package. All training is carried out with your dog in public, around other dogs, people and all types of distractions.

Some dog owners are a little unsure about training their dog in public because of the way their dog behaves when out in public. Dogs are situational learners, and therefore will learn for the environment they are trained in. Therefore a dog trained in a stuctured group class will not necessarily transfer over to the real world. When we first commence your dogs training I am hands-on with your dog to demonstrate and guide you, and more importantly help guide your dog through the most difficult part of his/her training. I will not pass up on any dog no matter how much it misbehaves in public, as the reason I offer this service to help dog owners achieve control of their dog in public. So never be embarrassed about how out of control your dog is, I am here to help and guide you train your dog and  to the best of my ability.

If your dog has no real behavioural issues in the home, and all you need to focus on is having a well behaved dog out in public, then these packages are designed for you and your dog. If you are having issues in the home, please visit my home consultation page by clicking here.

We conduct your dogs obedience lessons at locations where there are distractions that you would normally find when taking your dog out in public, such as other dogs, people, bikes, skateboards, etc, etc. This type of training is far superior to a sterile group class, where your dog does not come across distractions he/she would find when being out in public.

We can train your dog in any or all of the following:

  • Loose leash walking
  • Remaining calm and responsive to you on leash around distractions
  • Sit DropDowns on command
  • Stays up to 10+ metres away
  • Recalls from the stay
  • Recalls whilst your dog is free roaming
  • Place command in the home (if having lessons at my location, bring a mat)

Lessons are available:

  • 9am to 6pm Monday to Thursday
  • 9am to 3pm Friday
  • 9am to 3pm Saturday
