About Jake
Christmas note:

I have plans from the 18th Dec - 2nd Jan, as such have elevated prices during that period. Happy to negotiate, and if your dogs are well trained, socialised, and can be off lead in the bush then I would be happy to taken them to Riverwood Downs with my little family (18th-26th)

Hi! I'm a part time dog trainer, full time animal lover! Always love meeting new animals (and other people). I have 4 years experience training foster dogs, and am studying Cert. III in Dog Behaviour and Training with a view to specialising in guide dogs and rescue dogs.

I have experience with a wide array of breeds, ranging from Cavoodle puppies to fully grown Great Danes, and am confident in addressing aggressive behaviours.
It is my belief that positive reinforcement is the best way to train dogs, with neutral reactions having a place on occasion. I do not recommend the use of dominance based techniques.

When I'm looking after another dog at their home, my dog Axel stays at home with his other custodian :-) He's very friendly and calm, and loves having friends over at ours. When looking after pets they will get a whole heap of love from me along with their consistent routine.

I'm happy to discuss a training schedule to go in conjunction with pet-sitting, which would be tailored to your individual needs.
