K9 Specialist Training and Rehabilitation Centre

Dog Training is part of having a happy, healthy, friendly dog. Every pet owner’s dream! Maybe you’ve always imagined runs on the beach or watching him play with other dogs in the park. And laying contentedly at your feet watching a movie with you and your family. However, what happens to your relationship with your best friend when they constantly pull on the lead or they don’t come back when called? And they chase other dogs or they become food aggressive? Most of all, what happens to your dog and their well-being?

Your dream of a well socialised, friendly and well behaved family pet can become a reality. Due to our extensive experience your dog will become the best that they can be! For 25 years, our team of fully Qualified Dog Trainers and Qualified Dog Behaviourists have successfully trained dogs from all walks of life and for all sorts of reasons.

Our team of Qualified Trainers and Qualified Behaviourists are committed to all dogs great and small. We value the friendship, love and fun that a dog brings to their owner. This is what inspires us to be the best at what we do. Dogs are part of our own lives therefore we understand the joy that each and every dog brings to the world.
