Who is your trainer?

Hi!

My name is Wendy. I have been training dogs for many years and have a background in USAR Search Dogs, SPCA, pet dog behaviour modification, odour detection and general obedience training.

I graduated from the University of Waikato with my Bachelor of Science in Animal Behaviour (BSc AB) in 2002.  And more recently through post graduate studies gained a Post Graduate Certificate in Clinical Animal Behaviour (PGrad Cert CAB).

Getting the foundations right is a core part of my philosophy and one of the first things I teach owners is that many behaviours can be solved indirectly by getting these things right.  I will work with any breed and size of dog and will assess any behavioural case.

Watching the transformation of a dogs behaviour through the training process is amazing every time. Owners often believe their dogs behaviour is fixed and can't be changed. Showing owners their dog is not only capable of change, but also a lot more, is a main focus of my practice.

Seeing the relief from owners when they can finally feel some progress and see the light at the end of the tunnel, after struggling with their dogs behaviour problems for so long, is the icing on the cake. Being able to finally relax and trust their dog, and their own capability to manage their dogs behaviour, can be life changing for the dog and owner.
