“Rehabilitating Dogs Training People”

“Thanks for visiting”, I have been a professional Canine Behaviourist and Dog Trainer since 2006, where the majority of my training was carried out in Central Otago. I have also completed the "Principals of Canine Behaviour" paper through Massey University in 2008 and compete in competition obedience, where I have represented the Southern Region on numerous occasions. I relocated to Rangiora in 2009 and have since been helping people with their dog training and dog behaviour training all over the Canterbury region, with most of my work being in Christchurch, Rangiora, North Canterbury, Timaru and the surrounding districts.



I pride myself on offering a professional, friendly and affordable dog training service to all dog owners, whether they require group dog obedience training for their dog / puppy or a one-on-one session for answers to problem dog behaviour or for basic dog training.

In my career I have dealt with a range of dog behavioural problems ranging from aggressive dogs right through to fearful dogs. The good news is that all dogs have the ability to be rehabilitated, it’s never too late.

I am committed to helping all dog owners throughout the South Island to obtain the best relationship and bond they can with their canine friends. A relationship where the dog has a healthy respect for their devoted owner.

Please checkout my "Classes" and "Services" page for more information on dog training classes, behaviour and in home one-on-one dog training sessions and don't hesitate to contact me if you have any questions relating to dog training or dog behaviour.
