Hakuna Matata and I aim to produce easygoing healthy happy K9 family members
More recently, my new pup, Zuka Zama has joined me in producing the same result.
Together, we coach the rest of the family pack to achieve this through love and always with FUN!
Zuka Zama means "don't be frightened dive in..."

Aqua ( swimming pool) therapy and physiotherapy to help your injured, arthritic dog to heal.
Phase one -home visit
After an iniitial home visit, where you and I discuss family lifestyle needs effecting health and happiness of your canine family member, we collaborate in planning an exercise and training schedule introducing my partner, Zuka Zama ( means "don't be frightened,dive in") who role models desirable behaviour, calms and modifies undesirable behaviour and is affectionately dubbed Oom Kun by his children and learners alike.
Phase two -personalised obedience training
This home assessment is followed by one on one training with my partner "Zuka Zama", himself, a twice "rescue dog" who had many issues! Here we deal with the specific problem behaviours between dog and family such as
- aggression towards other dogs or people,
- unpredictable behaviour,
- weeing & pooing in the house,
- jumping on people,
- eating off the table,
- pulling on the lead,
- chasing bikes and cars,
- incessant barking,
- not coming when called
- anxiety at the vet
Phase three - Urban Socialising Family Dog School
When your dog is happily listening to you, we move onto more challenges and interactions in many group situations such as: jumping, riding the merry go round, attending the shopping centre for coffee, going for walks in nature etc.
