Our journey with Brittany first started a month after we adopted our little boy Buddy. We commenced with private one on one lessons at our home and boy did we learn so much as owners and handlers, with Buddy absolutely loving and thriving on his regular training sessions, responding immediately. The days and months to follow were (and still are) a challenge, there were tears, there were days where we couldn’t see light at the end of the tunnel, but there was also great wins, and we never gave up. Without Brittany’s ongoing support we would not be where we are now, 6 months in. She went above and beyond with us and Buddy, always checking in on us, always there for advice and support (not just with training) the long phone calls (with me in tears) with her no mucking around approach so very important in teaching us what Buddy needed from us as his owners and handlers. We were very nervous when we started Junior Dogs School, (reactivity with other dogs!) with Brittany and her amazing team of trainers guiding us through each week right to the very end, with our little boy truly shining by the end of the course, passing with flying colours! We will continue our private and group training with Brittany, and cannot recommend her and That Dog School highly enough! The support, knowledge, advice, experience and FUN that you and your dog will gain is truly incredible, and we are so grateful to be part of this amazing group!

I’m going to I rant here because I feel so strongly about this!

A week into getting our Labrador puppy in December 2020 we initially were planning on joining the puppy school attached to our local vet to teach our new dog the usuals.. however a friend recommended That Dog School to us. After having an initial conversation with trainer Brittany she offered to come to our house to help puppy Kevin settle in to home life and covered topics of sleeping, eating, toileting and playing and this is where our love affair with That Dog School began!

Kevin has since been through 4 training programs with That Dog School and a number of private training sessions with Brittany to cover more Kevin specific training – to deal with a young male Labrador- over the past 12 months.

Hand on my heart, I will recommend this dog school to family, friends and strangers until the day I die! The training classes are fun, inclusive and address real world scenarios that everyone wants their dog to be able to handle- loose lead walking, being well behaved when out in public, how to help them through anxiety evoking environments, how to recall dogs off leash at the park or beach.

This school is second to none and I HIGHLY recommend them. For anyone thinking of getting a puppy, to new puppy owners and even to those who have an older dog that think ‘oh well it’s too late now’ – contact these guys! You will not be disappointed

“Such an amazing group of ladies who really care about our dogs. They go out of their way every week to ensure we are progressing & they are always up for a chat about any concerns we have. They are all about that positive reinforcement and we love it!”

“We loved That Dog School trainers! Brittany and Julia, use both food and play for motivation. Thank you for guiding us through Preppy Pups, and Junior Dogs with clear, precise instructions on how to train Lady Sansa. (Thank you to Bree too!) The Preppy Pups and Junior Dogs Facebook group has been invaluable: being able to ask questions in between classes, seeing instructional videos from the trainers and seeing other classmates post videos of their progress.”

“We had Julia for a private session! She was amazing!! So many invaluable tips and our dog is already responding after a 90 min session!! Would highly recommend That Dog School!!”

“So glad to be on our training journey with That Dog School. My 3 dogs participate in 1 on 1 training and group classes and we have all gained so much confidence. Highly recommend Brittany, Julia and Bree.”

“Highly recommend the Junior Dogs course! Brittany, Julia and Bree were fantastic trainers and had so much knowledge and patience. We just completed Junior Dogs and I really loved the style of training as it was not the stand approach to obedience training, but focuses more on real day to day scenarios that we all have with our dogs. It’s not all about just telling your dog what you want him/her to do, but learning to work together and allowing your dog to make good decisions which led to a good outcome for us both.”

“We have two dogs, Tilly and Ozzy, both of which are full of energy and were completely out of control (think, dragged on my bum down an embankment). Insert That Dog School. We have undergone Junior Dogs training which focused on obedience and manners where both dogs have thrived, to say the least. Regular training and exercise has completely transformed our two unconfident and misbehaving dogs to amazingly well behaved, happy and confident pups that are now a DELIGHT to go for a walk with. We could not recommend That Dog School enough and genuinely do so to any fellow dog owner. You guys are awesome, thank you!!”

“My puppy Ace and I absolutely loved the Junior Dogs classes with Brittany and Julia! (We even got out of bed at 5:30am on a Saturday morning and drove 1.5 hours to be there). We learnt so many things – from teaching your dog to walk on a loose leash to some handy commands like drop and middle and gaining confidence when being exposed to new situations, surfaces and noises. Even though Ace already knew some of the commands it’s a different level when you also need to keep them focused with other dogs around and it’s so rewarding to see their progress on a weekly basis! We can’t wait to be back for future classes !”

Selina and Ace

“We have been amazed by the service we received from Brittany and Julia at That Dog School. We would highly recommend to anyone wanting to build a happy, confident relationship with your dog in a fun friendly environment. The support, knowledge and advice we received has already had a huge impact on our first experience with a puppy! The Facebook group was fantastic, giving us access to resources 24/7 and an excellent way to reach out for support. Thank you so much That Dog School!”
