Hi, I'm Mel
I’m a qualified Dog Behaviour Consultant and an expert on getting to the cause of behaviour problems in dogs
I help families in Melbourne’s south-eastern suburbs prevent and resolve problems with their dogs’ behaviour. I have a special interest in using ethical, science-based methods to help you safely introduce a new baby to the family dog.
Your relationship with your dog might not always be rosy. The good times are great, but you can do without the barking, jumping, pulling, digging, chewing and aggression.
If your dog’s behaviour means you :
dread taking your dog for a walk
feel embarrassed when your dog jumps on guests
feel frustrated with your dog for barking, digging, chewing or pulling on the lead
worry about your dog’s fear or aggression
don’t know how you (or your dog) will cope when your baby or grandchild arrives
I can help you. I offer private dog training sessions in your home, tailored to meet your needs. I can train your dog while you’re at work, and you can come home to better behaviour. Or I can coach you and your dog to build your skills together.
Bringing home a new baby is one of life’s biggest changes. On that day, your dog’s life also changes forever. If you’re about to welcome a new baby into your family, I want to help you get their friendship off to the best start. I hold training for expectant parents and grandparents on how to prepare dogs for the arrival of a baby.
