There are many different ways to approach dog training. What makes us different from other dog trainers is that our methods encompass motivational dog training with a strong focus on positive reinforcement that takes place within a well-structured program. We create reliable, sustainable practices that reflect you and your dog’s needs that are applicable in the real world and results in happy, well balanced and well-behaved dogs.
Our staff are fully qualified and highly experienced dog trainers, but we are also dog enthusiasts. We set high standards for our training programs that integrate skills and play to keep you and your dog motivated.
We have two of the largest indoor dog training centres in Australia, located in West Footscray in Melbourne; but as a standard practice we conduct smaller group training sessions to maximise your experience.
Whatever your dog training needs are, our team of experts can help you. With years of high-level professional experience in various disciplines and relevant qualifications, we are leaders in the dog training and daycare industries.
We are proudly certified by the National Dog Training Federation (NDTF) and a member of the International Association of Canine Professionals (IACP)

“ I thoroughly enjoy all of the video tutorials on Pro Dog TV which are broken down into easy steps to understand. Best of all – you get to see the trainers with their own dogs. It’s not often that you see trainers with their own dogs showing you how well trained and engaged they are!”

ARE YOU READY TO ACHIEVE YOUR DOG TRAINING GOALS?
We offer a comprehensive range of classes and lesson packages to suit all of your dog training needs.
“The team at Pro Dog Training are highly trained, committed and knowledgeable. My dog developed some challenging behaviours around the age of 18 months and I have been taking him to one on one training for the past four months. He is calmer, happier and I feel more confident in understanding how to manage him at home and when we are out in public.”
“I have been taking my 2 year old rescue dog to one on one lessons with Chloe for a few months now and I cannot recommend her and Pro Dog Training highly enough. When I first enrolled, to be quite honest, I had mostly lost all hope that my dog with significant behavioural issues (highly reactive to other dogs and sometimes people) would improve. I’m so happy to say that after consistent training with Chloe, my dog has improved so much already.”
“I can’t recommend David from Pro Dog Training highly enough. I have so much respect for his investment in ongoing training and his passion for animals. Love his work.”
“My partner and I have had 6 one on one sessions with Nicole to improve some issues with our 18 month old GSD, Luna. From the first session she gave us some very practical solutions to communicate and work with our dog. Some of the issues we focused on was engagement with us, loose lead walking, and giving commands and markers which have helped immensely. Our family and friends have noticed the improvement in our pup too.”
“Absolutely the best. They teach not only the dog but you; changing any bad habits, encouraging you to think a different way and they truly have the dog’s best interest in mind. They are small classes and you feel like you get one on one support. Highly recommend everything Pro Dog offers.”
Our goal is to provide sustainable dog training practices that create happy, healthy and well-behaved dogs. To establish a good and long-lasting relationship with your dog, we will teach you the theories that provide a basis for understanding about dog training. We will show you the practical techniques of dog training that are results-driven and achieve real outcomes and provide ongoing support for you and your dog.
