Mark...helping Sydney help their dogs!

Mark’s love for dogs is deeply rooted in his life, as he has welcomed them into his home since he can remember. Growing up in the countryside, his natural affinity with dogs flourished and combined with his military background, Mark developed an uncanny ability to diagnose and help with many behavioural issues that dog owners face. Although Mark’s innate talent had earned him numerous 5-star reviews, he wanted his future clients to know that they were hiring a true expert. So Mark set out to earn one of Australia’s best in class dog behaviour and dog training certifications – the National Dog Trainers Federation Certificate 3 in Dog Behaviour and Dog Training. The training enhanced Mark’s already impressive knowledge, providing him with an all-around skill set to fully support his clients’ needs. Mark’s passion for dogs, expert knowledge and a longevity of over 17 years has earned him the title of one of NSW’s Top Animal Trainers*, and he is often quoted in Australia’s largest newspapers when it comes to tackling dog issues – it’s no wonder many trust him with their much loved dogs!

WHAT IS HOME DOG TRAINING?

What is home dog training? At home dog training is where a dog trainer, sometimes referred to as a home dog trainer will travel to your home and help you with your dog’s behavioural issue or conduct private dog obedience or a puppy training session. In simple terms we are a dog training school that comes to you to teach both you and your dog! Depending on the dog trainer, the session duration can range from 1 to 3 hrs. Home dog training visits are generally designed to be one off.

During a behavioural home dog training visit which is sometimes called an in home dog training consultation, the home dog trainer will assess your dog’s behaviour and then seek to remedy it.  NINETY-NINE PERCENT of behavioural issues are fixed or greatly improved by The Sydney Dog Trainer. One of the most important aspects of any home dog training visit is for The Sydney Dog Trainer to ensure you have a proper grasp of the behavioural modification techniques used during the visit.

Early finish vaccines (up to 10 weeks) now enables the OWNER to properly socialise their puppy with zero risk. If you are not exposing your puppy to the outside world and everything in it, then your are NOT socialising your puppy! If you don’t plan on taking advantage of an early finish vaccination, don’t worry as we’ve got some great tips and hacks that you can use to safely socialise your puppy!

Private puppy training is fun, informative and tailored to YOUR family and YOUR home environment with 3 months voice/video support should you have any questions, queries or concerns arising post visit!  So when someone tells you that “You need to go to puppy school to socialise your dog.” you can kindly let them know what socialisation really is! and that is……….. getting your puppy feeling happy, confident and safe in the outside world and that is something you can do yourself!

DOG BEHAVIOURIST OR DOG TRAINER?

What is a dog behaviourist? A dog behaviourist is a dog trainer that specialises in removing/stopping or reducing behavioural issues. A dog trainer specialises in building new behaviours in dogs. At the core both are dog trainers. Some specialise in both such as The Sydney Dog Trainer where others don’t.

 

In this industry terms like dog psychologist, dog behaviourist can be claimed and used by anyone….even yourself! because there are no regulations governing who can use those terms.

 

Those who have completed the NDTF CIII Dog Behaviour and Training have been schooled not only to deal with a wide range of behavioural issues but are also trained in teaching dog obedience. The NDTF certification would have to be the most comprehensive course in the industry.

 

So in Australia a dog behaviourist or dog psychologist can be……..

 

A) a person who HAS completed government recognised training that specialises in dog behavioural issues.

 

B) a person who has NO recognised training that specialises in dog behavioural issues.

 

The Sydney Dog Trainer is nationally accredited with a C3 in Dog Behaviour and Training the result of which is you have an expert who is both dog behaviourist and dog trainer. I also specialise in one on one in home puppy training and obedience consultations.

AN UNREGULATED INDUSTRY?

You wouldn’t go to an unqualified doctor to get medical help. Yet hundreds, if not thousands of Australians every year unknowingly hire unqualified or inexperienced dog trainers and dog behaviourists to help them with their beloved fur friends. To be fair most dog trainers and dog behaviourists in days gone by started out with no formal training but those days are or should be long gone. In what is now a multi million dollar industry and a good choice of recognised dog trainer certification courses available there is simply no excuse for a dog trainer not to get his certification.  It is highly advisable to hire an accredited trainer or dog behaviorist for better results.

Tips for choosing the best dog trainer/dog behaviourist.

Tip 1. Try googling different search terms such as certified dog trainers near me, dog behaviourist near me, certified dog trainer near me, home dog training or best dog trainers Sydney or best dog behaviourist Sydney. You may even want to try a search with a suburb like, dog trainer eastern suburbs, dog trainer northern beaches, dog trainer north shore, dog training sydney, dog training near me, dog trainer, dog trainers near me, dog behaviour training sydney or whatever suburb you live in as this should come up with a dog behaviourist that services your area.

Tip 2. Once you have your results then check to see if they have their qualification listed on their website and if it is, is it nationally recognised within Australia or is it an overseas internet qualification.

Tip 3. If you can’t find anything on the website then just call or email and ask if they are accredited.

Tip 4. Once you’ve found a certified behaviourist/trainer then check out reviews. 5 stars only reviews are fantastic but don’t dismiss 4 star or 4.5 star trainers and compare prices. Check out the bad reviews and ask yourself are they fair or not when compared to all the positive reviews? You be the judge. Remember no one is perfect and President Lincoln said “You can please some of the people all of the time, you can please all of the people some of the time, but you can’t please all of the people all of the time.”

There are several dog training certification courses around now but imo the STAND OUT professional dog trainer certification course in Australia is The National Dog Trainers Federation CIII in Dog Behaviour and Training.

So if you’re looking for the best dog trainers in Sydney from the Eastern Suburbs to Northern Beaches or Western Sydney then look no further than Sydney’s Dog Behaviour and Training Expert!………The Sydney Dog Trainer!
