Accredited Animal Behaviour Consultant & Certified Force Free Dog Training Practitioner.
I am Emily Dustan. I am an Accredited Canine Behaviour Consultant as well as a Certified Dog Training practitioner with 18 years of hands-on practical experience.
My methods are safe, practical, kind, ethical, and evidence-based in science. I also work with a variety of veterinarians across the country and have worked with many dog rescues in aiding the rehabilitation of rehomed dogs.
If you are experiencing specific behavioural problems with your dog, then a behaviour consultation is recommended. I specialise in all dog behaviour cases including everything from general behaviour issues like barking, and leash reactivity, all the way to anxiety-related behaviours, extreme trauma & aggression-based cases. I work with families and their dogs holistically to ensure they receive the best support and coaching to improve their companionship and emotional well-being.

For all breeds of dogs, most dog kennels require the animal to be at least 12 to 17 weeks (4 months) old. The reason for this is because all certified kennels require incoming puppies to have had their first round of adult shots at 12 weeks, followed by the second round at about 16 weeks.
