Puppies and adult dogs don’t come pre-programmed to understand the unwritten rules of living with you. Where to toilet? Where is a safe sleeping spot? Are dogs allowed to come in the door with you?

I have extensive experience helping in this area.  I am an active foster carer for Animal Welfare League and worked for many years as an adoption counsellor.

From My Dogs

Elaine is my favourite human, unless you’ve got chicken treats!.  She adopted me from the Animal Welfare League 14 years ago. I was a rat bag puppy, lunging after running people and especially balls. I thought they were all mine.  She patiently showed me what to do when I was calm enough to learn.

Some of you might remember me from the front page of the Advertiser. I stood in for the real RED DOG, telling people to adopt Kelpie dogs only if they are ready for a challenge, lots of exercise and a dog that is cleverer than you.

I thoroughly recommend Elaine to help you to train your humans.


Demo Dog and Doggy Dancer

I don’t see why Zoe gets the first column to herself. I’m Elaine’s favourite – you can tell because she allows me to sit on her lap not Zoe.

I also was adopted from the Animal Welfare League, more recently than Zoe, in April 2020.  I am the demo dog for training new tricks. Zoe is too good at it to teach anyone anymore!

Elaine is patient and is teaching me people and dog etiquette at a distance. This COVID-19 thing is annoying, I didn’t get to hang out in the park with my human and doggy friends. Come and join me in a manners class.

See you
