Julie Rodger's work as a Veterinary Nurse introduced her first-hand to the incredible bond that people share with their dogs, and also gave her an insight into the fact that MANY people have at least ONE BEHAVIOUR that they would like to change in their dog... often, there are a few more! This led her to a special interest in animal behaviour, and in 2007, she established a dog training company that specialised in Pet Dog Training, Family Dog Fun & Training. Julie acquired formal recognition as a Professional Dog Trainer with a Certificate III in Dog Behaviour & Training in 2008, and has gone on to complete numerous courses, seminars and workshops to continually update her skills and knowledge, recently aquiring her Primary Level Accreditation with TAGteach International. Through Family Dog Fun & Training Julie is able to extend her dog training and behavioural services to dogs of all ages.
"A lot of owners simply want a well-mannered dog that fits in with their life and their family. THAT is what we want to achieve with Family Dog Fun & Training.
My dogs live in a family environment, so I understand that good canine manners and clear leadership are the cornerstones of sharing my life with my dogs".
Whilst many dog training facilities will help you to train your dog in basic and advanced obedience commands, Family Dog Fun & Training goes beyond the basics of training and obedience exercises. We help you to understand your dog, and show you how your interactions with your dog can influence the relationship that you have with them, the behaviours that they show, and ultimately, the success of the training that you do with them.
And of course, we can teach your dog how to do things like Sit, Come Back When They're Called and Walk Nicely on a Loose Lead, 'cos we're dog trainers too!
