Understanding the mind of your dog:
DogSmart Australia has over 20-years experience specialising in behavioural and obedience training of all dogs, regardless of their breed, age, temperament and background.
DogSmart Australia not only understands the way dogs think, responds and communicates, we also help dog owners re-establish the important role they play in their dog‘s life by revealing the external factors and individual traits that can influence a range of challenging behaviours and help establish the very foundations of good manners and harmony in the home.
Each in-home | outdoor behavioural training program is customised to suit your personal requirements, your dog’s living environment and the desired results. This includes ‘puppy‘ set-ups and in-home training, the management of dogs with young children, seniors and visitors, settling in adopted | fostered dogs and devising customised holistic rehabilitation programs for traumatised, anxious or aggressive dogs.
DogSmart Australia‘s unique techniques and gentle instructions were first developed by the late, John Richardson, the pioneer of dog psychology in Australia. The author of two bestselling books, The Dog Whisperer (2001), and Whispers of Wisdom (2006), John was also the long-term associate of DogSmart Australia‘s owner, Olga Hromow.
For nearly two decades John and Olga, and their highly-skilled team of dog behaviouralists delivered successful results and life-long benefits to thousands of dogs and their owners across Australia, Canada and the United Kingdom.
Additionally, John and Olga worked closely with animal shelters on numerous rehabilitation programs; regularly consulted with veterinarian clinics and licensed breeders, and conducted group training workshops with local government and other community-based service providers.
