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!’

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

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!’

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

Advice from John

Children and Dogs

Don’t just 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. Also be very careful with puppies and small children, often children don’t realise their strength and can damage internal organs on pup with a very affectionate cuddle.


Christmas time and lots of food around

Be certain to ask your guests not to feed your dog. Many foods that are fine for humans are not so good for dogs.
The last thing you want during the festive season is a sick dog and a big Vet bill.
Ask your Vet to provide you with a list of dangerous foods and plants and don’t over feed your dog.


Heat and Dogs

Dogs rarely die from cold, but often die from heat exhaustion. Please exercise plenty of care over the summer months, a dog can die locked in a hot car just as quickly as a child can. Also be very cautious on hot pavements, dogs pads are no tougher than our feet unless conditioned. Even then radiant heat from the pavement is not far from dogs vital organs. It is never a good idea to walk your dog in the heat of the day.
