Frequently Asked Questions
How much does training cost?
I tailor programs to suit individual requirements. I use numerous approaches in training depending on the dog and training goals so cost of programs varies from client to client.
If you are on a budget and need a ball-park figure, give me some information in your inquiry and I should be able to provide you with an approximation.
Do you come to me?
I do most training at my location in Mount Lawley.
However, I will sometimes meet clients at a park if the training requires it, or go to clients's homes if the training is very specific to the home environment or to fine-tune.
What approach do you use?
It's my goal to tailor programs to suit the individual dog in front of me rather than fit every dog into one methodology, as some dogs have specific needs and need different forms of motivation.
I'm educated and qualified in both force-free and balanced methods and do not follow one specific approach. My aim is for all training to be reward-based.
Do you use science based methods?
My accreditation is the only nationally and government recognised certification in the country for canine professionals which included the latest data and studies on canine behaviour and training.
I also hold a bachelors degree in psychology which gives me a deep understanding of the science of learning and motivation which I apply to my training daily.
How are you different from other trainers?
Many of my clients have been to multiple trainers and often feel let down when the approaches the trainer suggested didn't work.
My goal is to be the last trainer my clients need. I aim to understand as many approaches as possible so that I can tailor a specific approach to the unique dog/owner in front of me.
How do I get started?
