Zoe - Founder & Principal Trainer

My passion for animals started very young where I saved my money to purchase my first bird, a galah I named 'Swing'.  I got my first horse at age 9 and competed and trained in pony club for many years. My real love was dogs and birds. I got my first own dog at 18 where the real learning began.


I have been working with animals for the last 26 years as a Veterinary Nurse and as a dog trainer for the last 12 years. I am a qualified dog trainer through the 'Karen Pryor Academy'.

I am committed to providing science based positive reinforcement training to our clients to ensure a wonderful relationship is achieved with them and their dogs. 


I am devoted to continuing my education through attending seminars, conferences, webinars and courses. To ensure that my clients get the most up to date information.

In my spare time you will find me surrounded by my three amazing dogs and my blue and gold macaw.

 

"Changing behaviour is not something you do casually because that behaviour has value to the animal, or it wouldn't be doing it."

Puppy Training

When we welcome a puppy into our lives it can sometimes be overwhelming. We are here to help you enjoy your puppy with lots of handy hints to ensure you and your puppy have fun!


Our popular puppy classes use positive reinforcement training to help you create a solid relationship with your puppy. 

We aim to help you create a calm, confident, and resilient puppy. You will learn about canine body language and how your puppy communicates, learns, and most importantly feels.

We will cover the key elements that puppy parents face – toilet training, biting, mouthing, and jumping.

Our classes cover socialisation and basic training- sit, look, handling, beginnings of mat training and introduction to new novel things.

Classes are run from 2 different locations-

  • Manly West – Manly Road Veterinary Hospital

  • Bannockburn

Investment- $200 – 5 weeks, small classes, puppy manual, online course plus more
