WELCOME TO WOOFT
Human training for dogs
Be the best guardian you can be for your beloved dog.
Training your pet is not about tough love or who is top dog. As a Certified Dog Trainer based in Canberra, I’ve been surrounded by animals since I was a small child. Over the years I have learned and studied various methods of training animals that are not about force or using corrections; these techniques are fun for all and completely rewards-based, focusing on building a positive relationship between you and your dog.
I am looking forward to getting to know and working with all of your furry families!

With today’s busy life, not everyone has the time to attend scheduled puppy classes. I offer private, one-on-one basic training sessions for you and your dog in your own time, wherever is convenient to you.
In the 45-minute session, I will teach you to train your dog to sit, drop, stay, wait and be calm on your request. This individualised approach will save you time as we can cover more than is possible in a group environment. You will also receive helpful tips on troubleshooting common challenges people face with a new puppy
Customised, expert advice and training
The first session with a training plan - $130
Subsequent training sessions - 100
My Behavior Consulting work involves an intimate understanding of your animal’s natural and individual history. Your pet has plenty of potentials to learn and understand cues, and my techniques will lay the foundation for you to build upon. I combine your needs and wants with the natural attributes of your pet.
ASSISTANCE ANIMAL TRAINING AND ASSESSMENT
Wooft is an approved Public Access Test (PAT) assessor
Training session $110
The ACT assistance animal accreditation framework is voluntary and clarifies and promotes the rights of access of persons with a disability who use an assistance animal.
This means that people who rely on an assistance animal to alleviate the effects of a disability will be able to have their assistance animal tested, accredited and registered as an assistance animal and issued with an Accredited Assistance Animal card (ID card) for a period of up to two years.
The ID card will give handlers, businesses and the community confidence that the assistance animal meets standards of behaviour and hygiene acceptable for public places.
