Our Vet recommends Paws and Think Dog Training. Owned and operated by veterinary nurse Shelley, who with a plethora of animal training certifications, runs classes aimed to give pet owners all the information and support your puppies emotional and physical development.

Shelley has great experience and been training animals for more than 10 years. She and her team use positive reinforcement methods only for both cat and dog training, so owning your pet remains a lifetime of positive awesomeness.  The team believe dog cat training is definitely not a hard task to master with the right guidance, and the consistency and the way you train that can make all the difference.

Paws And Think Dog Training is based in Newtown and mostly covers the suburbs of the Inner West in Sydney.

All this experience culminates to a high-quality puppy school for you and your new puppy.
