We offer training solutions for a variety of behavioural and training issues.

Please note that with the current COVID19 outbreak, all of our Private Consultations will be run via Skype until further notice.  If you would like more information as to how this can help benefit you and your pet, please click here. 

K9 Connect offers positive reinforcement, science-based strategies to help you understand how to help your dog with their training and behaviour.  We like to work with you to create an individualised plan specifically for your dog. 


We have extensive experience both with general training as well as working through more complex behavioural issues such as fear, timidity, aggression and separation anxiety.  Our expertise is unique having worked exclusively with Vets and Veterinary Behaviourists, helping develop training plans and behaviour modification programs for dogs with problem behaviours and mental health issues.  We also focus on the education of pet owners, trainers and other professionals, developing their knowledge and understanding of pets and pet behaviour.  

For this reason, our appointments usually begin with a sit-down chat, where we gather information about the issues you are having, what has already been attempted to address the issue and then start to piece together a treatment plan.  Our goal is to help you better understand your pet, why they may be behaving the way they do, and of course the psychology behind it.   From here, our following sessions are designed consolidate the treatment plan to help you practically apply the training methods discussed and taught.

K9 Connect offer private consultations both in the comfort of your own home, or at our location in Ferntree Gully. 

We understand that your pet is part of your family and strive to help you achieve your goals with whatever training is required - be it general training or treating more specific behavioural concerns. 

Our private consultations are run through the businesses of our two trainers Julija Kinghorn (Southern Cross Animal Stars)  & Amanda Murcutt (Pawsitively Great Pets).  If you would like more information about the services they provide, please visit their own individual pages:
