Who I am, what I do and my social networks, connect with me.
I have been actively training dogs as a profession for over 10 years. Before then i was under the guiding hand of one of the most well known dog trainers in South Australia for 3 years. In this time i have trained or rehabilitated countless dogs. From your everyday mongrel mutt to high drive on the edge purebred dogs. I do not turn away any dog nor will I ever.
In all my years i have suggested only once that a dog be put down as it was mentally incapable of functioning on the lowest level. I believe the dogs that are the most rowdiest, anxious,stubborn and misinterpreted dogs are the ones that need help the most. Not with drugs but with structure, limits and common sense.
I do not undertake the belief that there is only one way to train a dog . I will use whatever tools that are at my disposal for the benefit of the dog. I am more interested in the outcome rather than the method. This is where I differ to many other trainers that are more interested and fixed on a method regardless of outcome.
I train dogs because i love doing it. I love the positive outcomes, seeing a dog first come to training and seeing it leave as a responsible obedient member of a family.
I would say my approach is a balanced one . Using all 4 quadrants of learning principles based on scientific fact. I know it works by the outcomes I get. One must have structure and consequence in training. A dog will only do what it is good for itself. If it works for the dog it will keep doing it. If it doesn’t work it will stop. Common sense.
