Dog Training

All ages. All problems. Most breeds.

In-home dog training that gets results

Effective dog training can make all the difference between enjoying your much-loved companion for many years – or ending up with a costly, troublesome liability.

At AUSDOG, we can help your dog achieve its potential with dog training that’s always:

  • Conducted in your dog’s natural environment
  • Tailored to your dog’s temperament and your lifestyle
  • Centred on positive reinforcement and encouragement
  • Involving the whole family – including your children
  • Based on simple, practical advice that’s easy to implement

Wish we had found you earlier

Gill & Owen M, South Yarra

‘Our 20-month-old yellow Lab Teddy became aggressive towards other dogs, barking furiously and acting like he would attack them. We tried eight sessions with another dog trainer but saw no improvement whatsoever. But John solved the issue in just one session! We wish we had found you earlier!’

Is your dog ‘on the same page’ as you and your family?

Have you introduced an adult dog into your home that’s either untrained or not adjusting well to your environment? Is your current dog having difficulty with change – such as a house move, new baby or additional pet?

Whatever your hurdles, AUSDOG can train your dog and educate your family on how to overcome them. We offer clear and simple strategies for a range of everyday issues that affect adult and adolescent dogs such as:

  • Toilet, sleeping and eating habits
  • Establishing physical boundaries
  • Behaviour towards family members, visitors and other animals
  • Correct handling and socialising when walking in public

Learnt a great deal

Lynne G, Hurstbridge

‘My sincerest thanks for your time with Milly and me today. I learnt a great deal and look forward to Milly behaving herself!’

Yes! We’re ready for our dog to become a happy and well-behaved companion.

The Dangers of Chicken Necks

I have been warning dog owners for many years now regarding the dangers of chicken necks, however many Breeders and Veterinarians keep advising owners to give them to dogs. The University of Melbourne study warns against feeding dogs raw chicken meat especially chicken necks. It is not hard for a pup to choke. Read more about the dangers of feeding your pup chicken necks here.

Children and Dogs

Don’t take it for granted that because your dog is good with your children that he or she will be fine with all children. Don’t be paranoid, however, exercise caution with dogs around children, particularly those under 8 years. Often children don’t realise their strength and can damage internal organs on pups with an over-affectionate cuddle.
