Just completed backyard puppy school. Cannot recommend Tatiana highly enough. Her knowledge, expertise, passion and kindness are next level. I learnt so much in each session and have found her techniques easy to implement. If you are considering puppy school then definatley call on dogz walkabout, you will not be disappointed.

Tatiana was fantastic with our Border Collie. She provided us with fantastic tips and tricks to get the best him and we are very thankful for her assistance!

We had a great training session with Tatiana. She was very thorough and helpful and we now have a detailed written plan with how to continue training our dogs. Highly recommend!

Puffy LOVED backyard puppy preschool training!!! It has made such a difference and he is a good little boy who can now follow basic commands. I 11/10 recommend
Tatiana supported me to help my dog Frida be more responsive. Using a three step approach, Tatiana had Frida focus and walk to heel within the first session. I was impressed with how quickly Tatiana gained Frida’s trust and she quickly leant what was required. I found Tatiana to be skilled at assessing the needs of both Frida and myself. I highly recommend her to anyone having issues with their dog!

Tatiana helped us train our new puppy.
Her knowledge and patience is outstanding. Our new pup is turning into the most delightful, social and well behaved boy. Divine Sunny has responded to Tatiana's clear and positive instruction which makes it easy for us to implement. I cannot recommend Tatiana more for dog training.

Tatiana was great, she spent time getting to know not only ‘Aggie’ but listening to us and how we are around our dog. I think we’re the ones who needed the training! It was an important insight to our dogs psychology and what we needed to do to support her and have a happy, healthy dog. I also recommend her so she can validate or correct what you think you’re doing is ‘right’.

I have just completed Backyard Puppy School with my 3 month old Cavoodle, Sandrine, and cannot recommend Tatiana and her curriculum highly enough! I've learnt invaluable lessons in building independence, confidence and very good behaviours which I know will make for one happy dog as she grows older. We've also just started to practice free shaping which is a training technique I wasn't aware of but am now obsessed with this method (and look forward to the day Sandrine has learnt to put her toys away!) Thank you Tatiana and Dogz Walkabout for this experience and education.

Our family have really appreciated our Backyard Puppy Preschool training with Tatiana, which was a combination of online and in-person lessons. Tatiana taught us specific skills for our labrador puppy such as how to achieve loose leash walking and discourage jumping, as well as the foundations of dog training, which we have been able to apply to lots of situations over the months since then.
The classes had a structured ‘curriculum’ but also plenty of time for questions and tailored information, and realistic advice for our situation. Tatiana was great at ensuring everyone in the family - adults and children - had hands on experience in the training, helping us to be consistent in our training.

Recommended by our vet, Tatiana has supported us through the trials of puppyhood and been an advocate for our very assertive young Labrador when our stamina flagged. She and her partner demonstrate a genuine concern for the welfare of the dogs they visit and contribute in meaningful ways to making their lives better. I am so grateful we found them; it has made the experience of dog ownership so much more enjoyable.

Tatiana first visited us when our pup was just under 3 months old and spent time on that first visit getting to know her and showing, by example, how to encourage and reward better behaviour. Over the last 5 months, she has helped us create solid foundations from which we see, every day, a more thinking, independent, and calmer dog emerging. By far, I am most appreciative of the walks. Our dog adores Tatiana and happily goes off with her for walks in Royal Park. She returns sated and, over time, has developed much needed social skills. In recent times, Tatiana has come to the rescue, assisting with additional walks, while I have been recovering from surgery.

If you endorse positive reinforcement reward-based training and consider it a privilege to be able to have a dog in your life, then you can’t go wrong with Tatiana.

Our pup, Tommy, couldn't love Tatiana and Karen more! We needed help with Tommy's walking on lead and within a few short weeks, we saw improvements in his behaviour. He is now less anxious, doesn't pull, and walks calmly. Tatiana provided clear and gentle advice and videos to watch to demonstrate techniques to use. All with a positive rewards-based approach, both Tommy and I are enjoying our walks a lot more.

Tatiana has been fabulous in teaching me the skills to train our puppy.
She really loves her puppy students, and is great with the humans too.
I highly recommend her for all aspects in helping you with your training.
She was also recommended to me by a friend and we really couldn't have been happier with her.

My little fur baby is a shy Italian Greyhound who has gained so much confidence since Tatiana started taking him for walks.  He has become calmer and          happier, his behaviour overall has improved a lot.  Tatiana always sends a report each day and I love seeing photos of their adventures together while I’m out at work.  She is super reliable and also flexible, happy to change the schedule by adding or moving dates as I need to fit with my life.  I highly recommend Tatiana and Dogz Walkabout.

           They took amazing care of my dog Henry and sent through great daily updates. I will be using them again when I go away.

 


So glad Fern (1 yr old Cavoodle) and I met Tatiana from DogzWalkabout in the park one day! She has taken Fern for a fun walk/run/play twice a week since then and Fern absolutely LOVES it when Tatiana picks her up. Yo've never seen such a waggly tail. I always get great photos to see where they've been and how much fun they've had. Tatiana is a great communicator and clearly very knowledgeable about and besotted by dogs.

"We had Tatiana come for some one on one sessions with our Great Dane cross rescue pup, Zeppelin. three sessions later and he was an angel to walk with and we knew and understood a lot more on how to train, discipline and encourage our little boy. Tatiana went above and beyond and even took time out to make a phone call when I emailed asking for advice. Would highly recommend Tatiana to anyone. Zeppelin adored her as well!"
