Give your puppy the best possible start
Adorable can turn to naughty very quickly
Puppy Training – Bringing a new puppy into your home is a special time. You can’t get enough of their cuddles and cuteness – at least until the weeing, chewing, biting or jumping begins.
Did you know that the first 18 weeks of your puppy’s life is the most crucial learning period? So you don’t have much time for false starts. And remember: a naughty, untrained puppy can quickly become a badly behaved adult dog.
I would definitely recommend John
Craig G - Parkdale
We had John come to train little Alfie a feisty Mini Schnauzer and we were amazed with the results. He was able to quickly identify the dogs nature and the issues that required attention. Methods were clear and very practical and easy for the family to follow, even down to the appropriate treats & toys. I think that one of the most valuable parts of the training was that John trained the whole family on how to provide consistent and clear direction to Alfie. This meant that after the training we were all capable and could maintain consistent approach to the training. Our 2 girls felt very comfortable with John’s coaching and enjoyed the training. We are now able to enjoy our little pooch and he is much happier also, I would definitely recommend John.
Choose your puppy training approach wisely
Contrary to popular belief, puppy training schools are often ineffective because they don’t teach you how to handle your puppy in its own environment. And surprisingly, they can actually hinder positive socialisation rather than promote it.
In fact, 8 out 10 badly behaved dogs we train were once puppy school ‘graduates’!

Simple, straightforward advice for the whole family
Biting, chewing and jumping are not part and parcel of puppy rearing. These behaviours can be avoided. And if they’ve already started? You can and should correct them as soon as possible.
We help you and your children address the specific challenges that come with bringing a new puppy into your home – such as:
- Nipping, chewing, mouthing or biting
- Jumping on family members and visitors
- Crying and separation anxiety
- Pulling on lead and poor behaviour with other dogs
- Setting physical boundaries in the home
- Overexcitement and unnecessary barking
- Digging, burying and other destructive behaviours
Results were instant
Mike N, Warranwood
‘The arrival of our new puppy was a very exciting time but the challenges quickly became apparent. However, John’s visit was all we needed to help us set boundaries for our puppy – and the results were instant. After just one week of reinforcement, our puppy is now toilet trained and extremely well-behaved.’
