Training and Puppy School


Jordan Dog Training use simple, effective positive reinforcement techniques that are recommended by industry professionals around the country.

Our training methods are based on the domestic dog’s instinctive pack behaviour, using only positive reinforcement and rewards. No fear-based or harsh methods are used.


Our mission

Our vision for Jordan Dog Training is to enhance the relationship between dogs and their owners, ultimately reducing the number of animals that are surrendered or euthanised, by teaching guardians how to communicate effectively with their dogs.


Services and products

Our In-home sessions, group obedience classes and puppy schools teach dog owners the value of communicating gently and intelligently with their pets, (sometimes known as dog whispering) and teach them how to think in a more canine way for more successful interaction and problem solving.

In addition to running puppy schools which teach new puppy owners how to lay the foundations for a happy, healthy puppy and prevent potential problems, we are also experienced in addressing problems in dogs of all ages.

Some of the common problems which we often see and are able to resolve include:

Separation anxiety

Destructive behaviour


Jumping up on people

Pulling on the lead


We assess the dog and the environment, and develop an individual training program to solve these doggy problems and many more. Our gentle methods are effective and produce long term results as they treat the cause of the problem, not just the symptoms.
