“Harrison’s happy again”

He no longer barks or cries when we leave the house, he comes when called and has the best manners when waiting to be feed! Amazingly he has also stopped attacking the mobile phone after your visit and stopped toileting inside. But the best bit is that we have claimed our bed back! Harrison no longer feels like he needs to be next to us 100% of the time, …

Want to eliminate any unwanted behaviour without force, fear or aggression

As we work together your dog will respond in a way you have never seen before. You will see your dog change their behaviour of their own free will.

As a dog trainer I will show you how to calmly establish yourself as the leader by giving your dog the signals it understands. Then once you are a worthy leader in the eyes of your dog we will be in a position to start changing their behaviour.

Put an end to that barking,
biting, jumping, stress and pulling

We shall remove the stress that so often accompanies behavioural problems and begin to provide your dog with the life they deserve by using clear instructions and signals that your dog understands.

When it comes to dog training the best form of control is your dog’s own self-control. With more respect from your dog you will notice a change in its attitude from a power struggle to one of co-operation.

Whether you are trying to eliminate unwanted behaviour or training a new command you will feel like you are now on the same team!

Inside every dog is a good dog

If you would like help then I would be more than happy to invite you to my property to run a 1 on 1 consultation. During this I cover off everything there is to do with dog and puppy training for example…

Dog Training

I can help you with every type of dog problem and show you how to prevent any unwanted behaviour to ensure a happier and more relaxed dog. Regardless of the breed, age or problems I guarantee you’ll end up with a completely different dog by following the simple steps I show you.

Puppy Training

Wether you chose the 1 on 1 in consultation or use my online training program I can show you the kind and gentle way to train them and get off to the right start. By understanding how to discovering how to get your dog to calm down and listen you no matter what is going on around them you’ll be ensuring that future problems don’t occur.

I offer a permanent dog training solution…not a band aid

This is a method that eliminates unwanted behaviour through treating the cause of the problem, not just the symptom. During a consultation I will show you the mind game that every dog is playing, the rules of the game according to your dog and how to win! Once we have done this and won your dog’s mind then we are able to train your dog’s body and change their behaviour.

When you understand what signals you have been sending your dog you will realise why they have been behaving the way they have! Watching your dogs respond when we communicate to them using their own non verbal language is a wonderful experience.

A fantastic basis for training your dog

We are been blessed to have discovered Doggy Dan and his kind and gentle methods to assist us in Saving Lives of our SPCA dogs.

Many of the dogs that come to us have behavioural problems that we need to deal with before we can safely place them in a ‘forever home’. Both SPCA staff and potential new families benefit from Dan’s simple method – a fantastic basis for living with and training your dog.

– because dog aggression or just ‘naughtiness’ can mean the difference between life and death for a stray Robyn Kippenberger SPCA.jpgor an unwanted dog. Passing on this method to the dog’s new home can also mean the difference between a happy homing or the dog being returned to us.

“I fully recommend Doggy Dan and this method”

About Doggy Dan

Hi, I’m Doggy Dan,

As one of Auckland’s leading dog trainers I believe
“Inside every dog is a good dog and inside every good dog is a great dog” and that includes yours!

My life plan is to help change the world of dog
training and make it a better place for all dogs.

To help people see that there is another way to change
their dog’s behaviour that is gentle and kind.

I use the simplest, gentlest and most natural
methods to change your dog’s behaviour. I never
use shock collars, and never use fear based methods
to scare your dog or puppy.

However I can provide you with the tools,
techniques and understanding to stop any
unwanted behaviour with your dog or puppy…

And help you develop the best possible relationship
with them, that will stand the test of time 🙂
