About hellopuppy

"hellopuppy" was created to offer the people and dogs of Melbourne and the Mornington Peninsula a new approach to puppy and dog training. Being a "one man operation', I am able me to provide my clients with personalised attention, allowing a mutually beneficial relationship.


We all know that owning a dog is an amazing and very rewarding experience, but it is also an important responsibility. Therefore, by training your dog properly, you will gain a much greater understanding of who they are and how you can both live a happy and harmonious life together.  

My approach involves you being fully immersed in the training process and ensuring that we cover all bases and in doing so, I find that owners end up learning much more than they thought possible.

As a Qualified Dog Trainer / Behaviourist / Myofunctional Therapist, I also take a wholistic approach to your dogs welfare to ensure they live the best life possible. I also regularly attend training courses and seminars to expand my knowledge and ensure my methods are both effective and up-to-date. This ensures your dogs health and wellbeing is taken as seriously as humanly possible.

Contact me to find out how I can help you and your dog begin a  new life together....
