Teaching people and training dogs for over 35 years
AUSDOG was founded by leading dog trainer and behavioural specialist, John Harkin.
Since then, we’ve sidestepped all the dog training nonsense out there – teaching dogs to be obedient, sociable and child-friendly. Ready for a life as a valuable member of your family.
With years of insights, our fully licensed and insured dog training team can make any dog, a good dog, for good.
FIRM, FUN, FAIR the AUSDOG way.
In your dog’s environment
We believe your dog will learn best in a familiar place, with familiar people. So we train in your home and on nearby streets.
A tailored approach
Your dog is one-of-a-kind. That’s why we train your dog carefully considering both their temperament and lifestyle.
Rewarding good behaviour with attention and affection will help your dog make good associations – and learn.
Involves the family
Training a dog is a household effort. So we like to get everyone involved – including your children.
Simple and practical
Once we walk out your door, training must continue. So we make sure you’re well equipped to keep up the work.
