Fear Free Training
Dog Training and Behaviour Modification.
About Us - What Fuels Our Passion.
We Love Rescue Dogs
Dog training behaviour modification. Having worked in the Pet Industry for a number of years I have seen first hand what a lack of obedience and structure can do to a dog and their family. By helping families regain control in their homes and outside, we can help to create a happy dog and a happy family and less of our furkids going to shelters.
All of our Team work with rescue dogs to help in training and rehabilitation so they can go to their fureva homes. This is a very important part of our business and the main reason I established it.
Below is Heidi's Story
We Love Rescue Dogs
Dog training behaviour modification means we go out of our way to help clients who put in the effort required to save their dog. There is no magic pill just hard work.
So if you really want to save your dog from death row we will support you.

How do we Train?
Dog training behaviour modification.
We believe in developing mutual respect and trust with your dog. This is about you being a Leader, NOT an Alpha. We do not use fear based methods, we believe in you being the single most important thing in your dogs life, and teach you how to achieve this special bond. This does not mean we shove food in your dogs mouth every 2 seconds - there are plenty of ways to positively reinforce behaviours without doing this.
There is a time and place for food, just not all the time. We want your dog to have a personality, not create a robot. So, if you are ready to lead your dog and teach them about mutual respect and trust, then read our reviews and give us a call.
Our Team have all done external training to achieve qualifications and continue to update their skills via University, Vets Skill Courses and more to ensure you have the most up to date methods based on reward.
We use Fear Free Training
We promote and use FEAR FREE Training. What does that mean? There are lots of trainers who use methods to induce fear to achieve obedience and fix simple issues - such as;
Demanding punishment for mistakes
Hanging them in the air via a choke chain to get compliance in classes
Standing around them hitting them with pool noodles or hats in class for misbehaving
Throwing things like bags of marbles at dogs to scare them into stopping what they are doing
Yelling at them * Hitting them or their nose
Alpha rolling them into submission
Pinning them on the ground
Hitting them with a lead or riding crop
Raising a weapon (ie newspaper) to intimidate and other ways.
We will never request this of you.
The minute you raise a hand or threaten your partner, they lose all trust and respect in you. When you do this to your dog you break that sacred trust bond. How can you ever expect your dog to follow you and trust you, when you the human are incapable of emotional stability.
Choose to educate and show them, set rules and boundaries, learn to effectively manage yourself and your best mate, learn what to do and watch your relationship blossom in a positive way.
We stop at nothing
Always do everything we can to ensure your success and tailor the training to suit you and your dog
We Love To Teach
Knowledge is everything and we love to share it with our clients to build a better relationship with their dog.
We Take It Step-By-Step
It is at your pace and we make sure that the dog has the opportunity to learn gradually the same way we do.
We Keep It Simple
Everything is in Plain English - we are here to help you not make ourselves look smart
We Believe In Hard Work And Dedication to save Dogs

We give you the skills to get through puppy hood with the right advice and then on to train your dog in obedience for a well-mannered and well-behaved dog. No more jumping on strangers, pulling on the lead on walks or running riot through the house.
Our Dog Training will teach you the structure to gain control. These locations are from Vets, Schools, Tafes, Private Premises and also our own commercial facilities around QLD and now Melbourne. We do not list the locations as they are private events not public ones and we restrict access to remain compliant with conditions and rules for each facility or location. The small profit from group classes help rescue dogs. We do not charge our affiliate rescues for the work we do for them. Our methods are reward based - we teach you how to build a relationship with your dog.
