Dog Behaviour Management

Facing behaviour problems?

Is your adult or adolescent dog displaying a particularly difficult behaviour that you’re at a loss on how to handle? Are you at your wit’s end and thinking of giving up?

Well, don’t! It’s not necessarily too late to overcome the challenge you are facing. In fact, you may be pleasantly surprised about how little it can take to get things back on track.

As specialists in remedial dog behavioural management and modification, we can help you with all complex behaviours including:

  • Anxiety: regarding separation in specific situations, towards people or other dogs
  • Aggression: regarding food or towards adults, children or other dogs
  • Disobedience: ignoring commands, pulling on its lead, bolting across the road
  • Destructive behaviours: digging, stealing, scratching doors, chewing
  • Biting: including nipping and mouthing
  • Excessive behaviours: overexcitement, barking, jumping, licking

Advice from John

Dog Bites and Children


Over the years I have been a strong advocate educating owners on the importance of safety of children around dogs. Dog Bite incidents are often a direct result of humanising of dogs. I can’t emphasise enough the message to dog owners that management is so important. All too often, we hear of another child bitten by a family dog, and with horrific outcomes.


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.
