Training your dog or puppy can be challenging and sometimes frustrating and not one size fits all individuals. My goal is to teach my clients how to use lots of different tools when training, and how to incorporate them into their daily routine and lifestyles. Studying and teaching my own dogs K9 Nose Work® I loved how beneficial, therapeutic, stress free it can be for both dog and handler. This is why I really wanted to focus my training expertise to scent work training and Sniff was born.

I also offer private tuition using modern force free, science based methods. With over 10 years experience, a Cert. IV in Companion Animal Services, CNWI (Canine Nose Work Instructor), PPGA (Pet Professionals Guild Aust.) and APDT (Association of Pet Dog Trainers).
