About Us

Meet Sharon!

Passion, Compassion and Integrity – Because life is too short to do something you’re not passionate about!

Rodney Dog Training

Behaviour Consultant and Trainer

Sharon has completed a Certificate III in Dog Behaviour and Training with National Dog Trainers Federation. Sharon is a Certified Separation Anxiety Trainer through Malena DeMartini’s Separation Anxiety Certification Program and also completed training with Family Paws Parent Education in their Educator course. Sharon is also certification as a Certified Trick Dog Instructor through Do More With Your Dog.

With most of her career in Stage and Project Management, Sharon is realising her passion and desire to help clients and their pets live in harmony together.

The biggest gift we can give our dogs is to learn to communicate with them effectively and help them learn to provide us with behaviours we want, whilst also meeting their species appropriate needs. We do this by creating a solid bond and relationship with our dogs, resulting in more engagement and fun together.

Meet Rodney!

Sharon is supported by her rescue boy Rodney, who’s a Staffy x Cattle Dog (with that Staffy gusto and Cattle Dog energy) who amazes every day, even at the ripe age of 14 years old. We’ve completed Advanced level training with Rodney, Agility and Scent work, he’s so motivated to learn and always, always brings motivation and attitude to training.

Meet Chloe!

The little lady of the family is rescue girl Chloe, who’s a Boxer x Staffy (with a lot of boxer bouncing energy) who has shown just how divine she can be. We’ve completed Intermediate level training with Chloe, she’s obtained her Novice Scent Title and has her Advanced Tricks Title. We’re currently trialling at Scent Trials trying to obtain our Advanced Scent Title and you’ll also see Chloe assisting with our consults and group classes we run, as our demo doggo extraordinaire.

Separation Anxiety Dog Training
Sometimes we don’t give our dogs enough credit to make the right choices in life and these two have taught me so much. You’ll see updates about Rodney and Chloe on my Facebook and Instagram pages as they keep me on my toes…..I am truly the lucky one to have found these two!
