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

The best investment we could have made

Tuzz & Rhys M, Mornington

John came to our house in Mornington to train our 8 & 9 year old Staffies  We were convinced that they were beyond help & we would be stuck with dogs that pull on leads, were aggressive towards other dogs, barked at people walking past… the list goes on. Within the time spent with our dogs, John had them walking next to us on the lead (WITHOUT pulling), sitting at each street corner & waiting to be invited onto the street, not being fussed if another dog walked past & NO barking at the fence when people walked past our house. We cannot recommend John highly enough, we were blown away by not only his ability, but also the knowledge & insight that he gave us about how to enjoy our dogs. We can now have breakfast at a cafe with our dogs at our feet, all the while another dog sitting next to us, walk them with no stress & be confident that they aren’t barking whilst we are at work. By far the best investment we could have made. Thanks John!! Tuzz & Rhys 🙂

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.

Advice from John

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.

Dog Bites and Children

All too often we hear of another child bitten by a family dog. So many people clearly do not understand about the importance of managing family pets around young children. More children are hospitalised in Australia each year resulting from dog bites than car accidents. You may be surprised to know that most dog bite incidents occur within the family home with small children by their family dog.

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.
