   Dog Training and Behaviour Modification - Made Easy !
   All Ages, All Breeds, All Problems

Separation Anxiety

10 years ago I attended to an average of one dog per month with separation anxiety, now 30 per month is the norm.  Why? Incorrect rearing and management. Separation anxiety is not genetic.  Unfortunately we humans are the cause. Learn how to avoid and correct this very unhealthy problem. 


Dog Aggression

Dog aggression problems are never ending part of my work. Why? Once again incorrect socialising, rearing and training. Do you want to be sociable with everyone you meet?  Don't expect your dog to to be either.  Being well behaved and non aggressive is a totally different thing to being sociable. I do not want to be everyone's friend however i do not want to go around attacking or yelling at people, nor should your dog.  Learn the right way to socialise and condition your dog to be well behaved and well mannered.

At AUSDOG we specialise in rectifying such problems.

These behavioural issues rarely disappear with age, and generally cannot be rectified at group obedience classes as this not where the problems are occuring.  It is important that behavioural issues be addressed as soon as possible.

We work with you and your dog to provide real solutions to your dog’s unwanted behaviour. We produce quick results and  in an easy to understand process that will provide you with education and understanding and bring balance back into your life!

In the majority of cases problems that owners think will be difficult to rectify can be resolved in one consultation. Occasionally a follow up session may be required depending on the severity of the problem.  Specialist trainer John Harkin will advise you on the first consultation.
