Welcome to our school. Happy dogs make happy owners.

What is a naked dog?

We believe that a dog should be managed, ultimately, by voice and/or body language.

A naked dog is a dog that you can trust. It knows its place in the world.

He's our animal companion rather than merely a pet!

Dog Classes

Our classes focus on real-life problems prevention, developing social skills along with teaching basic manners. You and your dog will learn how to communicate with each other by developing a great relationship based on cooperation and trust.


Private Consultations

We come to you at the privacy of your home giving you the flexibility in time. We do an initial assessment, talk you through some of the strategies we can do to achielve your goals for your dog's behaviour, demonstrate how to give commands..., and encourage you to know that change is possible! 



Your dog comes and lives with us while you go travel around New Zealand or going overseas.

Your dog learns our house rules while enjoying the company of our dog called Max. All dogs get our attention, and our love- and daily walks. See our Facebook page for pictures

Can you take off your dog's collar and still have him under voice control?

Natalie and Max on North Brighton beachDogs don't naturally behave the way we want them to behave; they must learn to adjust to a human environment.

When we train, we aren't looking to end up with a spit-and-polish dog who obeys our every command with military precision but rather, to establish leadership and promote respectful submission by using the things they like to do as reinforcement for things we want them to do.

Set the rules and they will follow most of them and be rewarded.

By teaching your dog that he can rely on you to be their source of fun, you'll find that your relationship with your dog will naturally improve.

When your relationship matures, both you and your dog will enjoy each others company. Let's inspire some balance into our lives. The time that you put into managing your dog in your environment will reward you and your dog for years to come.

The question is.... how do you get there?

Does your dog....

Pull on the lead

Jump up

Display aggressive/nervous behaviour

Persistently bark

Destroy your home or possessions

Refuse to come when called

Misbehave in the car

Refuse to eat at meals times

Chase other animals

This doesn't mean he's a 'bad' dog. Rather, it's his 'behaviour' that isn't okay. Do you feel that your dog isn't listening to you? Perhaps you doesn't know the language.
