About Melissa
My husband and I are dog people : ). We have a high level of experience with timid, dog and human reactivity, over excitement, anxious and high energy bound dogs. Our experience ranges from all sizes and most breeds. Age ranges from 7 week pups, 6 month to 2 year adolescents and adults to seniors.

Our belief and vision is that every dog we can help, should live the joy of being rightfully accepted amongst their own species and always feel safe/stress free through our pack leadership and guidance (see our pics). Being respectful and trustworthy towards humans is very important, which is something we work very hard on as current foster dog carers. Exercise, rules and socialisation along with our calm and assertive approach is what we live by with our dogs, with this we have been able to rehabilitate our foster dogs and get them all into good loving homes.

Regarding Daycare and Stayovers we supervise all play and do plenty of physical pack activities (walking, jogs and running for your dogs) and will look to tailor their requirements depending on their natural energy level needs. In turn they will also receive plenty of rest in their own areas. Proper socialising on how to interact with dogs, people and places is also important and something that we specialise in. If you're looking for somewhere for your dog to meet plenty of other stable dogs in a controlled environment we will help out there with exposure therapy. Teaching them additional behaviours during their time with us.

Training session info - Booking includes assessments & behavioural modification training plans or 1 on 1 obedience skill sessions. Alternative options can be for medium to high level intensity exercise methods or Socialisation coaching / training sessions with stable dogs.
Foundation of training is from Certificate 3 in Dog behaviour and training with NDTF (National Dog Trainers Federation).

We hope we can help your needs!

I cannot believe how well our Cedar did at daycare after just 1 session of training! The updates sent to our email from different positive moments, were so comforting. We will definitely be making Cedar a regular at doggy daycare. :)

Our puppy loved her stay. It was our first time leaving her, so we were anxious. Melissa would send us videos and photos of our puppy while we were away, which made us feel a lot better knowing she was safe and having fun too.
