Dog & Puppy Training

Hi, I'm Doggy Dan.
As one of Auckland's leading dog trainers I can offer two options to train your dog or puppy behaviour.

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 :)

OPTION 1 : A complete dog and puppy online training resource
Looking to train your puppy now, or stop unwanted dog behaviours immediately?
Do you want amazing value for money?

Are you happy to work through things on your own pace?

Then I can help :)

My online dog and puppy training program which has helped tens of thousands of people all over the world from London to L.A may be right for you.

The great thing about this training program is that it work!
And there is a $1 trial for 3 days...(Note that is $1 USA since the training program sells world wide)

It includes a complete video diary of me raising my puppy Moses from 8 weeks old through to adulthood.

If you would rather take things slowly and find out more information about why this method is SO powerful then you can take a look at my FREE 4 part video course where you will get a much better idea of how I work and why its so special.

OPTION 2 : One on one in Home Consultation
If you wish to book up a consult for this time please contact me by email at However as mentioned, I am currently very booked up for the coming month.

If you are happy to invest a bit more then a visit from myself could be what you are looking for.

For $500 I visit you in your home and work with you for around 2 - 2.5 hours.

The solution that we put together can then be tailored to:
1. You and the people involved with the dog or puppy
2. Your home and surroundings, since every home is different
3. Your dog or puppy, since every one is different.

This package then includes ongoing telephone and email support.

It also qualifies you for very discounted access to my online dog training support of which feedback has been very positive.

This option is suitable for people who want a fully tailored solution and wish to benefit from the vast experience I've gained from working with 3000 clients and their dogs.

I'm available during the week including early mornings before work and late evenings, in certain circumstances we can arrange something during the weekends.

I can also bring my 4 dogs along if it's appropriate.

During the consult we will start at your home and then can progress to a park or visit a venue if that is where the issues take place.

A summary of Doggy Dan2

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 its 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 it deserves 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 now be on the same team and working together to achieve the same goal.

What can I help you with?

puppy_training.jpg If you would like help then I would be more than happy to run a home 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 home puppy training or attend my Group Puppy Classes I can show you the kind and gentle way to train them and get off to the right start. By understanding how to establish yourself as the pack leader you will be ensuring that future problems don't occur.

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

Dogtrainerdan.JPG This is a method that eliminates unwanted behaviour through treating the cause of the problem, not just the symptom. During a home consultation I will show you the mind game that every dog is playing, the rules of the game and show you 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 its behaviour.
When you understand what signals you have been sending your dog you will realise why it has been behaving the way it has! Watching your dogs respond when we communicate to them using their own non verbal language is a wonderful experience.

How does the training work?

Puppy_training.JPGDuring a home consultation I come to your house and work with you and your dog in your natural environment.
Visiting you in your home is extremely important as it allows me to observe your dog behaving in their usual manner with its usual stimulus and distractions.
Getting to the root cause

We will go through why your dog is behaving like he is. This is a key point because many dog trainers focus on the presenting problems or symptoms rather than the root cause of what’s really going on in your dog’s mind.
By understanding why your dog is behaving in a particular way it will be much easier to solve behavioural problems for good. One of the many advantages of being at your home is that we can tailor everything to meet your specific needs.
2 weeks Free post consultation support

  Dan and Tony Woodcock2  
If you need additional support then I am always at the end of the phone to talk you through your situation for the following 2 weeks to continue to work things through with you.
Right: Myself with the great Tony Woodcock :)
Where it is appropriate in consultations I shall bring along my 4 dogs Peanut, Inca, Moses and Jack to maximize the learning for everyone. You can find out more about a home consultation here or simply contact me to have a chat about you and your dog’s needs.
