Mark Gall dealt with: Aggression to a dog or other animal or where the dog is aggressive to the owner or a stranger Digging Jumping up at visitors or the dog jumps up at people on walks Sibling Rivalry - aggression or fighting between dogs in the same household

Great session with Mark. Really love that the training is done at our home and unlike other unsuccessful trainers we've used it isn't based on extreme fear or food. In a week we have made some great progress with walking and door bell running. Really appreciate the knowledge as our Greyhounds are ex-racing but Mark knew how to handle them, so thanks. Highly recommend.

Trainer note from Mark:
couple of awesome dogs and awesome owners. Dogs responded well to our gentle dog speak and did what was asked pretty well on the day. Daily work from the owners will pay off in really great dogs.
Well done guys.

Mark was very knowledgeable, understanding and patient. He made great progress with our dog in a very short time (as well as making progress with us). He taught us so many useful tips as an owner and handler that have improved our relationship with our dog and made him a much happier and obedient dog. Thanks Mark!!

Trainer note from Mark:
Noah is a rehome and never been around stock before and as he now resides on a lifestyle block action was needed. He responded really well and seemed to understand what we wanted , Nice work by the owners who's diligence will pay off. Great work guys.

Mark Gall dealt with: Aggression to a dog or other animal or where the dog is aggressive to the owner or a stranger Barking at people, dogs, animals, birds or where the dog barks for attention or at the slightest noise Hyperactivity Sibling Rivalry - aggression or fighting between dogs in the same household

I wish we'd called Mark sooner! After a couple of fights between siblings which were escalating in severity we needed help to get our pack back together. Mark was fantastic, he took the time to get to know us and the dogs first before we went near the kennels so our session targeted exactly what we needed. He explained and demonstrated the techniques clearly and was patient and non-judgemental. Our dogs responded really well once Mark had trained us as better handlers!! It was a really enjoyable session, we learnt so much and our pack seems happier and more relaxed now that we're more confident leaders. The equipment, resources and support are excellent and I feel like our pack is back on track thanks to Mark.

Trainer note from Mark:
# dogs all working farm breeds, all totally different temperaments, and two competing for the top job with Sibling rivalry ending in vet bills. Awesome folk who took on board the techniques and showed great skills . These dogs will feel soo much happier and more relaxed in their pack now.
Great job.

The training went very well. mark was very good at helping us understand our dog and we were impressed with how quickly Clem was able to respond. His knowledge is clearly impressive and he was able to give answers to all our queries.

Trainer note from Mark:
Clem is a well mannered but rather pushy boy in certain areas. he responded well as did the owners to applying the techniques to get on top of Clems dog aggression on lead and pushy ball play. Pulled as well. Great work all round.

Had our first session today with Koda as she has some dog aggression within a couple of hours there was a huge improvement in her behaviour. Mark gave great information which was easy to understand and I look forward to using the techniques that mark has shown me to further improve her behaviour.

Trainer note from Mark:
Koda is a placid Choc lab until a dog barks or shows aggression to her then fear aggression sets in, she has had free reign with the previous carers and doesn't focus well . She showed she can but will be a work in progress but showed huge potential to get over her fear issues.

Mark Gall dealt with: Barking at people, dogs, animals, birds or where the dog barks for attention or at the slightest noise Hyperactivity Jumping up at visitors or the dog jumps up at people on walks Pulling on the Lead Recall or not coming when called

Millie barked when somebody came to the door, she pulled on the lead when on a walk, jumped up on people and was constantly demanding attention. Mark showed us how to correct these behaviors, and almost instantly she became a different dog. She walks beside us now and is much more relaxed overall, I honestly thought I'd never see the day when she could walk nicely on and off a lead.

Trainer note from Mark:
Millie is a super clever Border collie cross who thought she was in charge. By using the simple and gentle techniques , shes responded very well and the owners did a great job apply the dog speak rules.

Mark has helped us to better understand our dog Tyson's dominant behaviors. He was able to start us off with techniques to correct his behavior so we can have a more relaxed and obedient dog . He let us know that it would be baby steps with Tyson and we have the reassurance of ongoing support . Mark was professional and was able to relay a basic training programme that we are confident to follow. Already Tyson is becoming a lot more settled thanks Mark

Trainer note from Mark:
Tyson is a 15mth old German shepherd un neutered male of direct German bloodline, extremely dominant and aggressive to visitors and other dogs ,animals. In the time the owners have had him they've not been able to get him to focus on commands even though they've owned several Shepherds before. His issues were aggression , barking , very physical and boisterious. Pulls. in fact isn't walk on the streets due to his nature.
Tyson took a bit to settle and was starting to respond to our passive use of training techniques. I'm excited to see progress in a couple of weeks. Great work guys.
