I’m Ronelle and I am a nationally accredited trainer with Certificate III in Dog Obedience and Behaviour Modification having qualified through National Dog Trainers Federation Australia (NDTF). I decided to do this course due to training and behavioural issues I was experiencing with my two dogs, Foden and Elsie. I enjoyed training and was proud of the success I experienced with my dogs that I wanted to share my skills and knowledge to help other dog owners. In November 2011 I started DogYard. I completed a Pet First Aid course with Pet Industry Association Australia (PIAA), which complemented the previously attained certificate in Animal Care Studies in 2005.
Having recently completed Certificate III in Canine Myofunctional Therapy, offering massage for dogs seemed like a natural progression to my Remedial Therapies qualification gained in 1999. Massage can assist Sporting dogs, Working dogs, dogs with structural issues, or for general wellbeing and recovery.
As I love training my dogs I am continually updating my knowledge and skills to introduce them to new and exciting things like scent work and gun work. The more joy they have in training the more joy I have training them. I have experience training a large number and variety of dogs including Staffordshire Bull Terriers, Labradors, Neapolitan Mastiffs, Border Collies, Dachshund, Jack Russell and Maltese Terriers, Chihuahuas, German Shepherds and many cross breeds to name a few. I look forward to meeting you and your dog.
