We are Balanced Trainers

What Does That Mean?

As balanced dog trainers we use “yes” and “no”.  We reward the behaviour we want to keep and correct the unwanted behaviours.  Some trainers limit themselves to reward only training.  This can be confusing for a dog and prolong the learning process.  By conveying exactly what you like and don’t like your dog can quickly learn which choices make owner and dog happy.  Providing clear guidance and structure is what makes balanced training the best option for teaching.

Dog Owners First

Trainers Second

We are dog trainers, of course we own a dog! A dog trainer without a dog is like a handyman without any tools…

D.O.G.S. of Vic. offers professional dog training for dogs of all ages, all breeds, and temperaments. We also offer reliable obedience training, puppy training, and training to resolve a variety of other canine behaviour issues. Regardless of the issue, we are committed to working with you and your dog until your training goals are achieved.
