We have just completed Puppy Preschool with Graham, Carmel & Nicole. I can’t recommend them highly enough. We learnt some basic commands & the puppies were socialised in a calm & controlled environment. Looking forward to continuing onto Level 1 obedience soon! More...

Dog training 101 with Aline Sinclair has been amazing! The difference in our dogs behaviour in just a short time has made being the owner of a reactive dog so much more enjoyable. The methods used are very effective and kind. We cannot thank Aline enough for going above and beyond the lessons with continuous support. Definitely recommend to anyone who wants a well trained dog regardless of any issues their dog may have. Thank you Aline! More...

Leroy and Kaos had their first training session this afternoon with Graham. Graham defiantly gave us some great starting training tips. Day 1 and I already feel more in control! I’m so excited to put in some hard work and achieve goals and have a fantastic support system along the way. Here’s to well behaved dogs! Thanks Graham! Can’t wait for the weeks ahead. Brittany and Liam. More...

We were having issues with our 3 year old female rescue dog. Her behaviour was very unpredictable and she was becoming increasingly protective. We were recommended to contact Dog Training 101 for help in correcting her behaviour. Aline came to our house that weekend and our lives were about to change. She taught us many things in that first session and immediately put out minds at ease that our dogs behaviour could be changed. Aline explained dogs are happiest at the bottom or the top of the pack, but not in the middle. The biggest problem was our dog had lost knowing where she sat in the pack order. Over the course of the next few weeks Aline continued to meet with us and through her easy to follow instruction we learnt how to train our dog. Mat training and learning to walk on a halter were ways we were shown to demonstrate control. Walking through crowds and being pat by strangers, something I had not felt comfortable with when her behaviour was unpredictable. Being a rescue dog you never know what issues the dog is carrying in their memory bank. With Alines experience and expertise we have been able to turn our girl back into the loveable, sweet dog she truly is. Thank you Aline. I can't recommend your services highly enough. Tania, Claus, Isabella and of course Cookie More...

We had Nicole come out to visit our Kelpie Lexi. We had two things we wanted to work on. Mat training to help Lexi control her excitement when people visit and walking (well being towed by her). Nicole was amazing within the hour we had Lexi on the mat making some progress with learning her new boundaries and self settling. Coupled with Lexi walking at heal before Nicole even left. Today for the first time since we go our girl we could walk her at heal without being towed. Our girls 7 and 5 were even able to control her and command her. A complete opposite experience. I couldn’t recommend Nicole and Dogtrainjng101 any higher. Very happy with what we got from 1 session. More...

5 stars! I couldn't recommend DogTraining101 enough. All of the trainers were kind and patient. I felt like I got value for money as we covered all of the areas I asked about (loose leash walking and basic obedience) and much more. Thank you so much, Graham.

Have been training with Aline Sinclair in Cairns. She has a common sense approach to training and behaviour modification of both owner and the dog. Her guidance has increased the confidence of both dog and myself. More...

I am a first time owner of a Staffy cross Lab, I contacted Dog Training 101 and booked my puppy into puppy school. I can not highly recommend them enough. Especially Kathy who taught both my dog & myself confidence & patience and calming. She is just a different dog. Kathy’s honesty and calming effect has made this experience for our family so amazing and I am confident to take my dog anywhere with the skills she has taught us both. Not to mention how loving she is with our dog. There’s no one better to teach your dog training than someone with a love of dogs like her. Thank you so much for everything. We will def be seeing you for Obedience Level 1 More...

Thank you Aline for being a fountain of knowledge for me and my cattle dog pup, Albert. I was so worried that he would go down the path that many cattle dogs go down, but Aline has taught me to have confidence in myself and in Albert. I’ve learned a lot about his behaviour and how to redirect it and Albert has responded in leaps and bounds. I’ve also learned to have faith in my dog! Thank you Aline for your guidance, we still have a long road ahead of us, but I believe in my little blue boy now I will definitely continue to level up with him through DogTraining101 More...

Aline is authentic and knowledgeable; a true dog lover. She whole-heartedly embraces each of her ‘students’ and their individual needs; our hearing impaired puppy was no exception! Aline’s calm, caring, honest and no nonsense (when needed) manner makes training an experience we look forward to each week. More...

We have spent the past 8 weeks or so working with Aline here in Cairns and will continue to do so. We currently have a stubborn adolescent male dog who has been used to getting his own way in life... until NOW. He’s met his match in Aline and she has slowly built up my confidence when working with him and is educating our entire family. She has an extensive wealth of knowledge when it comes to dog behaviour, she has an incredibly love for dogs and for training their humans. I wasn’t even confident I could find the right trainer for our boy but after meeting Aline I knew we’d found the right person to help and teach us all. Slowly but surely we are all learning and seeing results . If you are in the far north contact Aline to help you learn how to work with you furry friend, you will be so glad that you did!!! More...

My dog attended the ‘Reactive Dog Training’ classes with Aline. She became aggressive towards other dogs after our son was born and another dog jumped onto his pram, she reacted in a protective manner and attacked the other dog and she just lost trust in other dogs from then on. Aline showed us several techniques to practice and even was able to provide one on one classes until she was ready to attend a class. Aline helped me to teach my dog how to relax and let me do the protecting and finally my dog is able to attend our local dog park again!!! She still requires some ongoing training as it all takes time but the results have been more than I could have hoped for and she can finally relax and play again. Thank you Aline More...

We have tried other training methods. Dog Training 101 is far superior. Nicole was wonderful. Our dog responded inside of the first week. He learnt to respond to my commands and not to the want for a treat. Thank you so much! More...

We are half way through Level 1 Obedience Training with Lisa at Pacific Pines. Lisa is very professional & extremely personable and our 5 month old Boxer is hugely benefiting from these classes.

Graham worked with us for one on one training, the 3 sessions were absolutely wonderful! Not only did Willow learn new things, we did as well! She has since graduated Level 1 obedience with Nicole and we could not recommend DogTraining101 enough! Their commitment and knowledge are incredible and ultimately they have restored confidence in me as a dog owner! THANK YOU!! More...

I met with a couple different trainers before finding Judy and I’m so happy I waited. Judy is knowledgeable in a way that makes training a fun experience for both me and my dog, Winnie. Rather than emphasizing on everything that is wrong with a dog’s behavior, she started class with a statement about how no dogs fail their classes. Her classes and methods helped so much with my first dog, I’ll be bringing my second to her as well! More...

We would 100% recommend Training 101. Graham was our trainer. He customised a training plain that was suitable for Ferdinand who was VERY dog reactive. He is still slightly dog reactive (nothing at all like he was) but thanks to Graham we can now confidently take our boy out in public, and by doing this he has improved the quality of life that our boy now has. Home life has changed dramatically as well, Ferdinand is much calmer. We are very grateful for Graham’s input and will continue with his training now that we have the knowledge and skills to do so. Thank you so much! More...

Graham has been great with Paddy. (Trained whilst Paddy was 4 & 5 mths old.) And more importantly he trained us! We needed to be trained more than the dog!! He was able to relate the training to things we could understand. Paddy now walks on the lead, waits until we tell him to eat, sits, can be around hairdryers & vacuums! We learnt all sorts of random things that means Paddy is not an anxious or yappy dog at all. Thanks Graham! We really appreciate the time you spent with us. More...

We are going to be training our dog Cooper to be an assistance dog and this was the perfect place to start. We completed puppy school and obedience level 1 with Dog Training 101.

Our almost 5 month old puppy, Molly has just completed Level 1 Obedience with trainer, Rachael who was brilliant! She was very knowledgeable and was happy to answer all of our questions. Rachael was a calming influence on Molly and taught us how to interact with her and get her to follow commands. Molly's now well on the way in her training and it has been pleasing to see the change in her behaviour. We intend to continue with the courses. Thanks Rachael! More...

Aline is a Dog Whisperer indeed!! She carries a few cuts and bruises from my ‘monster dog’ from a one on one but he had full respect and licked those scars he made... a week later!!! Amazing!! My rescue dog would NOT be handled by any other trainer! Aline was the last resort!!! And Loki is now 80% more manageable than when I picked him up as a 3 month old. Took just 2 sessions with Aline. All the near biting and scratching scared me, but not Aline!!! A very Strong and Experienced dog trainer!!! Rest are amateurs in Cairns compared to Aline! No treats, no physicality involved!!! Amazing!! More...

I am so grateful for Dog Training 101 & the awesome work that Kathy (and Graham) have done. My 12 month old pup started being aggressive towards the younger pup and thankfully I was able to contact these guys who have performed wonders and given me the tools I need. My dog is now amazingly calm and controlled and so obedient. Forever thankful to the amazing work of Kathy. Would recommend in a heart beat! More...

After having Jason come and do an in house training session with my 3.5-year-old boy who did have some issues with mainly walking on the leash, after sticking with what Jason showed and taught me how to do things I can finally take my boy for a walk without him pulling. I highly recommend these guys.

Just finished the reactive dog course with my rescue dog, down at the Gold Coast. Worth every cent. I have tried lots of other classes, personal trainers and training techinques (food, positive etc), but until I addressed his reactive behaviours, nothing else was going to work. But I didn't even know he was considered 'reactive' until I read about this course! Before xmas it was an ordeal to take him for a walk. He would pull me to the ground, twist around me and knock me off my feet, lunge towards particular breeds of other dogs (huskies and German Sheppards especially). He would go into a rage and I had absolutely no control. I had my doubts with taking him to yet again, something that wasn't going to work for him, but I can say for the first time ever, I have control of my dog, both on the leash and at home too. This course works. Thank you so much Graham and I appreciate that you were able to cater to us all the way down here on the GC More...

Highly recommend these guys! I just finished level 1 with Ashleigh, and she was fantastic! At the start of the training, my pup refused to walk with his halter, pulled on the lead and was not enjoyable to take for a walk. After we finished our basic training he is great on the lead and the halter. Ashleigh has a lot of knowledge to pass on, was very friendly and great with every dog! I can’t wait to progress through the levels with this fantastic team! More...

If you want knowledgeable trainers who show care and consideration to your dog and yourself - Dog Training 101 is the group. We completed level 1 obedience with Cathy with Sumee. Cathy was patient with us and was able to guide us to a point where we were far more confident with our girl. Big personality dogs are no problem. We have the skills to move forward and will continue our training for sure with these guys. Thank you so much for your help. ***** More...

We had Ashleigh and Graham for our in home DT - they did a great job with Monty our Fox Terrier/Terror/Terrorist we have nicknamed him Montysaraus!!! (quite a different cup of tea to our Poodle) So it took a bit of collaboration between the three of us and a couple of cones (dog training ones that is!!) but definitely no feet on his head. He improved each week and with the homework (which we still do) by the end of the course he was a noticeably different/better dog and so were we as owners. Thanks Ashleigh and Graham ciao paul More...

Kathy certainly knows her job very well and her love for dogs also shines through. We learnt so much about our dog and how to help her behave better.

I would like to thank Graham and Georgie for there help with our dogs Barry and Nelson . Graham has Been helping us with our dogs that started a dislike for one another at the age of 2 and 3 years old they are both desexed males and they are now 3 and 4 although they still argue the dogs themselves are more obedient and are so much easier to control . We are having control as before we had no control . They have just finished level 1 Obedience and before this there was no chance that we could bring these dogs safely out in the public without the training and guidance we had obtained through Graham and the staff of dog training 101 we can’t recommend them highly enough and we are looking to continuing the training in 2019 . THANK YOU HEAPS GRAHAM for your help and support in 2018 , bring on 2019 . More...

Thank you to Aline who has been a wonderfully calming and caring influence on my two heeler x collie puppies. Two male litter mates has been very challenging and it has been a pleasure working with Aline to help curb their boisterous ways. Aline is always positive and supportive when we’re training and not only encourages the pups but myself as well. It’s going to be a long journey for us and I’m very glad I’ve finally found a trainer that understands our issues and is helping us get to to where we’re all happy little vegemites .

I just wanted to say we couldn't be happier with the service we were provided from Jason at 101 dog training. We did a lot of research to try and find the best trainer around our area to assist us as best as possible with our 3 year old Cocker Spaniel. When we came across 101 dog training we could see lots of happy customers and we are very pleased to now be one of them. We still have a long way to go but the improvements we have seen in Chester in such a short time is amazing. Jason was a friendly and caring instructor who wanted the best for our dog. We learnt so much from him and wish we had found 101 dog training sooner. I highly Jason if you are needing any assistance with your dog. He has made a dramatic difference in our little one. Thanks Jason! More...

Finished up the level 1 obedience few weeks ago with our 4/5year old Great Dane x mastiff and Jason the trainer. Before we were not confident taking our big girl basically anywhere due to what we thought was aggression and not being able to control her, now she is a completely different dog. Still got a little to go but the change is tremendous. Would 110% recommend you guys to anyone and everyone! Really appreciate what you did Jason! X More...

We just finished our course of sessions with Aline here in Mareeba and could not be happier with what we have learnt and achieved! Our dog was struggling socially after a sheltered early life on a farm and we were struggling to take her out for walks for fear of her becoming aggressive and out of control with other dogs. With Aline’s confidence, advice and easy to understand explanations, she is now happily joining us all on family outings and none of us are stressed if another dog is in the vicinity. We also joined the stage 1 dog obedience classes and we’re loving it! Thanks Aline! More...

Aline is fantastic with our reactive Great Dane x Bosun. We have had one on one sessions and have now progressed to group obedience. Aline has helped us understand Bosun and what we need to do to help him. Still a work in progress but a much less reactive dog and one we can calm down quicker. Bosun loves Aline, we all love Aline. She is worth every penny and it is amazing seeing her in action with dogs like ours. More...

Just wanted to say how impressed I am after 2 sessions so far with Jason. After not being able to walk our two cattle dogs due to not having the confidence to control such active dogs, two sessions in we have had a dramatic difference in their behaviour, as well as our little girls barking. The tips and tricks we have learnt so far have made such a difference and I’m so excited to continue seeing the progress. Thank you so much Jason! More...

We just finished level 1 obedience and will definitely be going back for level 2, 3, 4.... we had the best experience with Georgie she’s given us the tools to gain control and we’re far more confident dog owners. We have also seen significant improvements in our Staffys behaviour. Highly recommend! Thanks Georgie and dog training 101!! More...

I have recently finished one on one training in FNQ with Aline. I cannot recommend her expertise enough. Aline has helped me and Bax come along so nicely. We are now just about to start group obedience. Something I never thought I would be capable of. I found Aline to be very patient and knowledgeable with all breeds including my Bax - 12 month old GSD from working lines. Thanks DogTraining101 and Aline. Nikki More...

My mastiff was stubborn and taking him for walks out in public was a night mare. After just 4 in home sessions he is a complete new dog. It was worth the money so now I will do group training just too get him 100%. I would like to thank Jason on a awesome job he did with my boy and also to Sonya too. Highly recommended More...

Recently completed puppy school and found the trainers fantastic. All puppies are supervised so they learn how to play appropriately. Basic foundations for a well behaved and balanced dog are taught , and we will be starting basic obedience to continue to build on the great foundations we now have. Jason has also done some in home visits to help us with our older dog. Even though she is seven years old , we have seen a marked improvement and can now bring her inside as a well behaved companion. I highly recommend Graham and his team. Friendly , professional, knowledgeable and have a genuine care for the dogs well being . Thanks heaps guys ! More...

We’ve had 2 sessions with Jason now and our staffy Bentley is a completely new dog! He’s so much more relaxed and with a new baby in the house we couldn’t be more grateful. Jason has been fantastic and has given us so much information even beyond just the training techniques he’s shown us. Bentley is such a big part of our little family and we couldn’t be happier with his progress since his sessions with Jason. Highly recommend! More...

Would recommend 100%. Jason came out and helped me with a dog I am fostering at the moment. Not knowing her very well myself, Jason was able to adapt to her and mat train her in less than 5 minutes. He also helped me with my own dog. He was extremely respectful and professional, going above and beyond and supplying a training collar for my foster dog. Will definitely be using the service in my future! Thank you!! More...

Firstly The trainer was an hour late both times and secondly I have nothing positive to say about the team as I was told that a “dog is just a dog” and dogs don’t need socialising . To me, a dog is part of my family and doctor Harry says every dog needs to be socialist... so I don’t know where dog training 101 got their training from... if they have any, but it was a total waste of money.

I am so happy that I decided to have in-home training and can't speak too highly of Aline. I am now more confident walking my Yogi. He is now doing most things I ask of him including waiting at the kerb until I tell him to go and doing automatic sitting. He's a big dog and now far more controllable. I now enjoy our morning walk. Thanks again Aline.☺ More...

I booked the 4 at home training package for our rowdy 1 year old Rottweiler cross hoping to get more control over her especially around our young children and other dogs. After 4 sessions I am so pleased with her progress. She has come a long way and I’m confident that she now knows I’m the boss and responds to commands as I need her to. Jason and Graham are very professional and I would highly recommend DogTraining101 to anyone. More...

I want to start by saying that their daycare program is a very good concept, but has just not been executed to the standard possible. I brought my cocker spaniel Benny to daycare on multiple occasions. On the first visit, they left his head halti on him the entire day, and it wasn’t removed until I called them (after photos were posted), not sure why they would think to keep it on all day, but he came home tired and seemed happy enough. I booked him in again shortly after and things only went downhill from there. The next two or three times that I took him to daycare he was having meltdowns when I would drop him off and pick him up - this is completely out of character for him as he is usually more than happy to go off with other people (for the groomer, vet etc). The staff were also making comments about him, mostly asking if i was considering training him more, without clarifying why (he is a well trained dog, so it is not usual for him to be acting out as i felt they were implying). After his last visit, he was clearly very upset and was not tired at all (as a dog who had been there for 8 or so hours should be!) I decided to take him elsewhere. The comments that dogtraining101 had made about him made me extremely nervous with taking him somewhere new - however the new centre has done nothing but rave about how well he is behaved. Unfortunately I can’t comment on what is actually happening during the time spent at daycare here as I was never given any descriptions of anything they did, despite me asking. While I think the idea is wonderful, I think that in my instance they have not executed a good service, and unfortunately I wont be returning. More...

Annoyed we didn’t find these guys sooner!. Spent hundreds on collars, harnesses, shock collars etc as we have two large American Staffys who were nearly impossible to walk due to pulling, excitement and distraction. Jason came around and spent a hour at the house giving us advice and tips, and a new type of halter. Saw instant improvements and now feel we have the tools to keep working at it. Jason was friendly and easy to work with!. Thank you!. More...

The classes were small enough that you got a lot of one on one time & made it easy to ask what ever questions you had. More...

Hi, I have just finished the obedience class level 1. What can I say, I have learnt so much on how my dog responds to me and how to get the most out of my relationship with my dog. Bailey is a 5 month old Great Dane, weighing in at over 40 kg it’s fair to say I have a reasonably large dog. I want to feel confident that I can take him anywhere and that I can control him. Grahams no nonsense approach has given me that, he teaches a common sense approach and helped me understand the reason and the behaviour of my dog. I now have a dog who I can take anywhere, even to work in a childcare centre. Bailey, I am happy to say is comfortable in every situation he is placed in. At this point is a non reactive dog. I can’t wait for level 2 and hope to complete all of the courses. I can recommend this training to everyone. If more people completed these training sessions we would all have great relationships with our furry friends. Thanks Graham More...

These guys are awesome, and really understand dogs! We have a dog who was highly reactive when taking her out for walks (dogs were the worst but bikes, people, cars etc have all set her off too). We had been doing the in home training which was great, however we decided to sign up for the group obedience class. We have just completed level 1 with Georgie and our dog, Mia, has improved so much over the last 4 weeks. Georgie and Graham have gone above and beyond over the last few weeks to help us out in these group classes, as Mia was a bit of a handful the first week. Thanks guys, we really appreciate it and I'm sure we'll be back for more classes!! � More...

Very impressed with the training we have received for our crazy Staffy puppy Bonnie. She's 5 & 1/2 months of age so full of lots of nervous energy. I'm sure if you are a Staffy owner you can relate to how much love, attention and training they require. We have just completed puppy training with Kylie and now obedience level one with Graham. They have both given excellent advice for me to follow and the training has been second to none!!!! Highly recommend this company if you are looking into having your dog trained. We have always had Staffy breed dogs for pets and have previously tried other dog trainers from privately owned companies, unfortunately the training didn't work out for us (being treat based the dogs would only listen if they received a treat....) The training we have just received through Dog training 101 was not treat based. Thanks again Kylie and Graham and you will see us again for level two in the future :) More...

My husband completed lessons with our rescue dog. She is large (50kgs) and an odd shape so we had tried a number of harnesses/haltis etc however due to her shape she slipped out of all of them. We enlisted Graham knowing she may not be the 'perfect dog" but just wanted to be able to have some control/recall particularly given her size. After 3 lessons, Graham advised him she was just stubborn and would try to look into getting some sort of speciality harness made and get back to us. When my husband followed up and tried to book the 4th lesson that we had paid for he was told there wasnt much point. Fine - lesson learned, we shouldn't have paid upfront. What I disagree with is the way this page is run. My husband commented on a recent post by this company complaining about another company for claiming Dog Training 101 use shock collars when they don't. My husband commented on the post, pointing out that Graham had used one on our dog during one of our sessions (with his permission). My husbands comment was promptly removed and he has now been blocked from commenting or leaving further feedback. We trusted that you knew what you were doing however your inability to stand up to scrutiny says you are embarassed of your own practices? More...

An added benefit of each class was that my pup was tired and the rest of the evening was very relaxing! More...

We have just completed a 4 lesson private course for our rescue Kelpie cross that we have had for 12 months. After months of battling with a number of problem behaviours, and feeling quite desperate that we would never be able to control him, we can now see the light at the end of the tunnel. Kylie has explained everything very well and, what seem like simple strategies on the surface, are now having an ongoing and progressive positive effect on our lovely boy. He just seems to be getting better each week. The strategies are firm, but painless, and we have had to accept that we needed training as much as our dog. Looking forward to introducing him to Group obedience classes in a couple of months. More...

We had Sonia enter our home 8 weeks ago to help us with our 4 year old Beagle that we got just before Christmas. Louie didn’t like being at home on his own and used to dig his way out and cry and bark a lot. Since having Sonia come and train us how to be better doggy parents, Louie is now able to be outside by himself, he has stopped trying to dig his way out of the yard and we are now focusing on his walking and him not pulling as much. I can’t thank Sonia enough for the time and effort she has put in to help us. I was at the point where I didn’t know what to do with Louie and was ready to re home him. Louie still has a long way to go but he has come leaps and bounds in just 8 weeks. More...

Our American staffy joey came to us as a rescue dog. We were his 3rd home in his short 14 month life because of his “behaviour”. He was a chewer, didn’t listen and just didn’t know who to trust. Enter Kylie our trainer and guardian angel. After just a couple of one-on-one sessions, and following Kylie’s instructions daily we saw a huge improvement in joey. He was calmer, happier, he stopped chewing (amazing, but what these guys teach you will change your dogs behaviour even when you are not at home!). He could follow basic commands, be walked with fingertip control, (American staff! Huge, strong dog, no pulling!) but most of all he learnt to trust us. He knew we had his back, but most of all we found out he had ours as well. We were out walking one evening when a dog came up behind us and attacked me. Joey, in his now chilled state had not even noticed the dog until it was upon us. He did not even hesitate, springing into action and chasing away the other dog. He then went and sat next to our little boy who was terrified, to calm gun down and protect him. This training course will not only give you a better behaved companion. It will create a bond between you and your dog that works both ways and can’t be broken. More...

I attended a training session tonight for QSAR foster carers where Graham took time out from his schedule to explain to us how to manage and assimilate our rescue dogs when they come into our homes for care. Wonderful session from a very knowledgeable man that will help us, help those dogs that have often been let down by their humans. I cannot recommend this company enough and the fabulous work that they do. Thank you Graham, you definitely have a paw shaped heart, bless you and your team � � More...

We met Kylie 3 months ago, she was recommended to us to train our 8 month old bull terrier puppy. We had been having issues with her jumping at the BBQ and trying to bite the smoke, biting smoke from mosquito coils, biting the bins, and having trouble walking. From the very first lesson with Kylie we noticed a significant change in our bull terriers behaviour as we began mat training for discipline and we worked on additional techniques with Kylies guidance. This has resulted in our dog Billie being a very well behaved dog. We would highly recommend Kylie and dog training 101 to train anyone's dog as we have found her to be FANTASTIC! More...

We recently completed a 4 week Level 1 Basic Obedience Class with our Cavoodle. Kylie ran our sessions and gave us lots of information and tips. While our dog was pretty good, there were a few behaviours that we realised needed addressing eg barking and being demanding when visitors first arrived. Kylie helped us to understand why this was happening and taught us strategies to help overcome the issue. While we are not there completely as yet, we are well on the way to having this problem resolved. The methods used also had another positive spin off and as a result we have a much calmer dog. �� More...

So impressed with our first group lesson of basic dog obedience with Georgie. My full of fun, life is for the adventure Labrador pup of 5 months was becoming a handful at home and on short walks. Georgie helped me straight away, she identified where I should be going with my pup and who was in control me or the pup! We both had a great lesson and I already feel confident to use the training learnt today at home. Can't wait for next week. Thank you Georgie for your patience and support. More...

I have a 7yo medium sized rescue dog who had become reactive to other dogs as a result of being in a dog fight. He had gotten to the point of not being able to go for a walk and unmanageable in the vicinity of any other dogs. Kylie from DT101 came out and helped me with him- using mat training and distraction techniques around other dogs to help me gain better control of him. We have come a long way in four sessions, and I have been able to walk him consistently every day while getting more confidence myself as his leader. More...

I had Kylie come to my house for my miniature dachshund puppy George who has separation anxiety. I had tried medication recommended by the vet which actually made him worse. With just one session with Kylie followed by lots of hard work George has made such a great deal of improvement. I can’t recommend Kylie and Dog Training 101 enough. It’s not a quick fix and takes a lot of time and patience but to have a happy and calm dog is so worth it. More...

I have a 1yr old frenchie that has a barking issue. He would bark at little noise and our neighbors such as a little movements he can see thru the fence. Also he barks at a bird sitting in our garden and ppl in our suburb walking pass with their dogs. He also has an issue when we go for a walk. He rather looks agitated at other dogs walking by on a street therefore walking with him in the arvo when a lot of ppl and dogs go for a walk became a challenge. So we called Dog Training 101 then we met Alien She is a very lovely person and very informative!! We're still working on him getting used to those situations so these small problems hasn't been solved yet however, when we do train him, I can see him calming down. Hopefully the day we enjoy a walk with him and go to a cafe together comes soon. I liked the training cause my husband and I learned more about dogs and Alien approaches in very humane ways but firm so Pecan knows he can trust us. After all, my husband and I are happy with it and can't wait to meet other dogs at park doing some more training!! :D More...

Well who would've thought that Gracie my 11 month old, crazy yet lovable Labrador pup could do this?.. After only 2 home sessions with Kylie I was confidently able to take her to visit my Mother-in-law in a Nursing Home! All done through verbal commands & visual cues - Not a treat in sight!! When Kylie first met Gracie, Gracie just wanted to jump on her & lick her through the door!! I had taken Gracie to puppy school (with a different trainer) and everything was treat reward based. As Gracie grew bigger & stronger I really struggled to hold onto her when walking & was literally running beside her as she pulled so much. It was not pleasant or safe. That's when I called Kylie. As I gave Kylie Gracie's training & behavioural history she noticed anytime I gave her a command I gave her a treat. Kylie nicknamed her "Cookies & Cuddles" as that was how our much loved Lab was rewarded. Little did I know that Gracie was actually training me!! How times have changed. She is now happy with a "Good Girl Gracie" & a pat! I cannot recommend Dog Training 101 highly enough. It has certainly made our labradorable Labrador calmer, easier to handle & a joy to take walking. More...

My boy has been reactive to other dogs and I couldn’t even control him on a walk. He would bark at the fence a lot when ever anyone or another dog passed the yard. Kylie and Anelisa came over for a session with me and I was gobsmacked as to all the little things I was doing wrong that actually encouraged my dogs bad behaviour. They gave me some amazing tips on how to stop his behaviour and taught me about mat training to help him calm down so that he can be more relaxed and enjoy himself more. They took us all for a walk and showed me techniques to use to help with his reactivity and my jaw dropped watching him being transformed on this walk. I can not thank them both enough and am so excited to commence his training. I would recommend them to anyone as they were really amazing, calm and assertive and really know their stuff! Thank you both so so much. More...

We have a 5 year old Tibetan Spaniel cross Mini Poodle called Junior who we love to bits but some behaviours he had become accustomed to we’re making it really hard for the family. We didn’t want to let him go so at last resort we booked in Kylie to come and help us....that she did wonderfully! Amazing that a lot of the training over the next 4 sessions were about retraining ‘us’ and Junior. Kylie was fabulous, she started us from the basics initially mat training and proper holster techniques and changing the way we manage Junior. After 4 sessions and a number of weeks practicing Kylie’s advice Junior his behaviour is SO much better and most of the issues we had don’t exist anymore. We are over the moon. Kylie is a lovely person with such a great way with dogs and people and highly recommend - you’ll be amazed as well what can be done in short time with the right advice - thanks so much Kylie!!

Thanks to Kylie for all the work she did with us to re-establish boundaries and control with our 18mth old cavoodle. Teddy was in charge because we weren't. Understanding that and acknowledging that all of the inconsistencies in the way we interacted with him had led to the behaviours we found unacceptable ... put us on the path to a happier dog and household. Lots of positives in the way Kylie worked with us during our 4 home visits but my top list - mat training (I call it the magic mat), no food rewards and the Haltermate. We're not there yet but we are very happy with the progress we've made - and know what needs to be done for further improvement. Thanks Kylie for listening to understand and for giving us a push when required. Highly recommend Kylie and DogTraining101. More...

We had tried everything with our 18mth old mini dachshund from citronella collar, outdoor bark control system, muzzle and finally pet safe bark collars & nothing was working for the long term. She is an extremely reactive pup to almost everything outside of the house, including people & other animals. (She barked at Kylie for a solid 20 minutes or so of our first session �). We’ve had 4 in home sessions with Kylie over the past 9 weeks & to be honest, I was a bit worried after the first session because i knew it was going to be sooo much work BUT I knew we needed it. Slowly but surely over the 9 weeks we have seen some very pleasant changes in Franny’s behaviours when she’s both in & out of the house. She’s stubborn & fights having less control but has come to love her training mat & we can even now take her for a walk without her reacting to everything along the way. We have had a great experience with a Kylie & have definitely learnt a mountain of new info about owning a pet! I can now see a light at the end of a long tunnel for Franny & am excited to continue with the training Kylie has taught us so we can be more relaxed & Franny can be a less stressed, less reactive little dog � Thanks Kylie � More...

We recently had Graham come to us for in home training for our 8 year old Staffy who had issues with other dogs. Walks were a rare event and normally late at night and avoiding houses we knew had dogs in their yards. We used to sneak into the dog park in the dark to get them their exercise when nobody else was around. Now walks are a breeze and happen much more often and during daylight hours as well. We can pass other dogs and there is no longer barking, pulling and lunging. Tonight for the first time ever I tried walking both dogs together by myself as I knew I would be able to successfully manage them together on my own if we passed another dog. They both walked perfectly and I couldn't be prouder. Mat training has also given us two much calmer and better behaved dogs. The both listen to us and follow our directions now. So thank you Graham for training both us humans and Zeus and Charli. My only regret is not booking in sooner! Cannot recommend them highly enough! More...

I come from a cattle station where dogs are a part of everyday life! I have had a lot of dogs over my lifetime... many kelpies for stockwork, then many pets, a cattle dog, a rottweiller, a ridgeback, several jack russels & labradoodles! I have successfully ( in my opinion) trained them all to behave how I want, to do what I ask etc. THEN I got a toy poodle....... and I cannot believe I havent been able to mould this tiny little dog into what I want. Main reason being is she is so in charge of me that she has ALL the control . Enter Kylie from Dogtraining101!!!!! She came, she observed..... & then we started on changing how Twinkle sees herself. There is no food rewards, just plenty of dog language with control being put in place with a good dose of consistancy & reinforcement when the behaviour is right! It is NOT easy but I can see it working. I would never have believed that I would use a dog trainer but I am stoked with what I have learnt & despite the continuing battle I have with Twinkle Im pretty sure I wouldnt have got this far by myself! The followup service that is provided is also great, I always seem to have questions that Kylie is always happy to help me with. I highly recommend Dogtraining101 to anyone who cares about their dog, their family, their way of life..... dogs are part of the family but like everyone else in the family, they have to adhere to the rules, at home or out & about! Cheers :) More...

I can't thank Graham enough for all his help with our crazy labrador! We were at our wits end with our dog who had numerous problem behaviours and who was basically ruling the household! After the first session Molly was like a different dog. However when we started implementing the new techniques she didn't like the changes and seemed to get worse. Graham went above and beyond and came out to our house free of charge to check what was happening. Turns out our dog didn't like our new rules and was testing us! Graham told us to persevere and we are so glad we did. Molly is like a different dog. She is no longer attacking us, chewing our furniture/house, she can play nice with the kids and her problem barking has improved dramatically! I would highly recommend this business. Graham really cares about dogs and helping families. I only wish we had organised it sooner. Thank you Graham for all your help :) More...

Being that he was a rescue pup I was concerned about how he would react to training. Georgie was fantastic. All training was done at a steady pace and in a very gentle and caring way. Murphy reacted well to this and learnt a lot (as did I). Thank you to Kylie, who took the time to come around for a home visit and give me all the support and advice I need to keep Murphy calm and happy at home. I could not have asked for better service, with text messages just to check up on how we are going with the training and genuine interest and care when discussing any of our concerns/issues. We will definitely be returning for level two classes. More...

We are so incredibly happy that we chose Graham to train our dog Riley. We noticed a huge improvement with her behaviour after the first session. We really believe now that it was more about training us as owners, rather than training Riley. We were doing everything wrong (only doing things that any person would do with a new dog), not realising we were teaching the complete opposite. I would highly recommend dogtraining101 to anyone that is in need of some immediate training. We were going to give Riley away, her behaviour was so out of control but now I can happily say she will always be a member of our family. Thankyou Graham. More...

Thank you for coming and meeting Buddy and and Nina- whilst we didn't have huge issues with them we wanted to be able to take them out with us more. Unfortunately Nina isn't great with other dogs and was barking at them when I passed any resulting in a stressful daily walk. With some new haltis that work much better than the one I has purchased for her previously, I feel more in control with her. I can see the mat training will also allow us more control. Still a long way to go, but for once I understand what I need to be doing- not guess work!! More...

Such good results with our two dogs. Kylie really tailors to specific needs! Have already recommended to many and will continue to do so. Most amazed by how much difference the mat training makes, would not have believed it before seeing the change in behaviour. More...

Really happy with the in-house training. The mat training has really worked well for Cleo to help calm her down and the obedience training with the walking is very beneficial.

We learned a lot and had an amazing time during our basic obedience course. Special thanks to Kylie for organising a French Bulldog specific class, and sharing her knowledge.

A big thank you to Kylie for coming out for our first home visit! Being new dog owners there's a lot to take in and learn and Kylie made everything super easy to understand and gave us the information and training we need to get our pup started. We would recommend this business to everyone! And will definitely be coming to puppy school � thanks again! More...

Hi all my experience with 101 has Been great Kylie came to visit Missy who is a adopted rescue puppy from QSAR Missy is very happy human friendly. But wasn’t friendly to any dogs birds horses I had rang a few trainers before I was lucky enough the rescue helped me and introduced me to Kylie The three trainers I rang told me to put Missy down as she is a six year old English Staffy and could not be trained. They didn’t even come see her. Missy had no interaction with other animals She was more excited than anything which puts everyone on edge, Including me After Kylie came and spent about 21/2 hours with us I could at least see Missy could be trained Not knowing how much this poor little girl had been through I was probably not being a strong as well I should Kylie said some simple words to me that changed her life and mine The words where you can’t live and treat Missy for her past You need to teach and show her her future Missy who couldn’t even walk on a lead next to another dog or be in the same area with out going absolutely nuts, Missy has been off lead with others and mixed Played eaten with not even one snap or any naughty behaviour I believe the knowledge and respect that Kylie taught me how to train Missy has been amazing Graham came out with Kylie on another day Between the the two of them Missy is alot happier puppy I am a more than happy owner Missy Still has along way to go to be trained Thanks to 101 (Kylie ) Missy has a forever home To the other trainers you don’t deserve to be called trainers shame on you I thank Kylie 101 Graham I truly thank QSAR Denise for passing on 101 trainers to me Great work guys Thankyou Missy thanks you I Thankyou More...

Kylie came to my house to teach myself and my partner how best to train our 8 week old border collie. I am very happy with her service, and the information she gave us has immediately improved our relationship with our beautiful dog. She packed a great deal of information into an hour session because we were eager to learn as much as possible. I am looking forward to continuing training with Kylie soon! More...

Well, where do I start? First off, we had food problems that caused arguments between our 2 staffies. One lesson later and no more food arguments. My 2 year old girl would not walk on a lead, she pulled (ripped your arm out) when walking, Now? she's perfect, she walks by my side and walks are now enjoyable. Overall, we have more control and a much happier household. I would recommend 101 dog training to anyone with a dog. More...

I cannot speak highly enough of Kylie at Dog Training 101. They care about the dog foremost. A genuine love & understanding of dogs is the most important thing to them. Kylie has helped me with my Matilda greatly. Matilda would bark at any little thing, now she is a calmer and less anxious doggie. Matilda loves her. Highly recommend!!! More...

Kylie worked with our dog in home. He made a lot of progress after and during one set of private lessons. She was also very flexible with times to suit our schedule. Murphy really respected kylie and we learned a lot. More...

Just a quick note to say a big thank you to Kylie for her one on one training with our Boston pup Stella. Her tips and strategies were great and made a huge difference with Stella, who is a very exuberant puppy. She really taught us how important our consistent behaviour was to help Stella. The on the mat strategy really calms Stella down. Kudos Kylie and highly recommended. More...

We've had great success with Kylie and our boy Jake. He had great anxiety issues when we were leaving the house and after a couple of sessions he was already so much better. And the training on the lead has been such a relief, it was really hard to take Jake out as he was constantly pulling on the lead but practicing with Kylie has built a good confidence and the lessons have taught us what to do and it's working like a dream. Thank you so much Kylie for all the help ! More...

Hi Graham has been helping me with my beautiful staffy Minnie. I fostered her about six months ago and love her to death. But she is very challenging when out walking very reactive to other dogs. We have a long way to go but with Graham’s help we are progressing. My goal is to be able to take her camping with me and be around other dogs. Graham has been extremely helpful and has been available to help me when I need it. Thanks heaps. More...

Graham came out for my clingy 7 month old German Shepherd cross. He was so patient, friendly and informative. I now have a calm confident and well behaved dog.

We attended Kylies French Bulldog obedience training and are absolutely blown away by the results thus far!! Diesel was a very hyper dog (to say the least �) and his ears did not work in public, but since attending Kylies training, he is such a different dog. So much calmer and obeys us now rather than him being in charge. It exceeded our expectations and we cannot wait to get in touch with Kylie again soon for the next step in his training. Thank you Kylie �� More...

Deciding to have our 2 year old Am Staff trained by dog training 101 was the best decision we've ever made - he is a changed dog! Very impressed.

Kyla is such a good trainer...she keeps it simple for us , so we can then understand our dogs and where we go wrong. Frenchies can be stubborn, Kyla understood the breed which made for a good Basic Obedience.

Dog Training 101 has changed our life. Hank is the most gorgeous Rottweiler/Mastiff pup who has issues with other dogs/puppies and people who aren’t part of our immediate family. He is now almost 6 months old and we have done both Puppy Preschool and Basic Dog Obedience. Today for the first time, he didn’t react AT ALL when walking past barking dogs at a fence. He has come such a long way since that first puppy preschool when he was so scared and hunched over in a corner. A massive thank you to Kylie for her perseverance and guidance with Hank (and us).��� More...

I have to say that I was sceptical at the start that my older 9 year old dog would be able to be trained but it's amazing. Nanook is being trained by Jayde and I have to say she is absolutely fabulous with him and us. Jayde has been training us for the last 4 weeks and Nanook is responding so well it's so impressive. I would recommend Jayde to anyone who wants to try this training out and see. Give it a go and give Jayde a go she is the best lady for this, she is so caring and loving to Nanook and so good with us. 5 stars is for the training and for Jayde. More...

A breath of fresh air to a crazy situation. We contacted Graham after talking to numerous so called dog trainers with no joy other than to put the dog down or use electric shock treatment. We discussed our situation of two existing bullmastiffs and then introducing another bullmastiff(rescue dog) to Graham who did not promise anything but was willing to help. The first introduction/training lesson blew our minds as too how quickly and passively the dogs responded to Graham and the training methods. The issue we had was the rescue dog and our oldest dog did not get along and would fight to the death if allowed. With the help of Graham we were able to gain control with the introduction of some good obedience training. The situation
