You are not alone!

In Australia, a staggering number of dogs are surrendered each year due to behavioural problems. It is estimated that around 20% of all dogs are surrendered to pounds and animal shelters and around 80% of these dogs are euthanased. It doesn't have to be this way! The vast majority of dog problems can be corrected.

Most dogs are simply in need of proper leadership and communication with their owners. At Urban Dog Training, we can teach you how to achieve this in an enjoyable and motivational way.

We can help!
