Dog Training ⛰️ Blue Mountains

Captain Canine

Break away from traditional concepts of dog ownership and feel a deeper connection with your dog. Hit all your training milestones and HAVE FUN with Captain Canine’s innovative approach to Dogs. 


Need some help with a furry rascal?  You've come to the right place! Life with your canine companion should be rewarding and enjoyable. Whether you are just embarking on a new life with a new dog or you've had your furry housemate for years, we will help you live the life you want and bring harmony to your pack.  

    • Got a new dog or puppy? Best time to start!
    • Think your dog is stubborn? Think again!
    • You want a well mannered dog when guests visit? No problemo!
    • Want to bring your dog to a cafe but can't imagine it now? No worries! 
    • You've already tried training but didn’t get results? We'll show you why.

    You'll be amazed at how much you can achieve with just 5-10 minutes a day.  Here's the strategy:

      • We’ll determine what training styles work BEST with your dog.
      • We’ll teach you the crucial art of timing: when to mark and reward.
      • You’ll learn to effectively communicate with your dog using body language and words.
      • You will start to recognise the warning signs of ‘over-the-top’ behaviours and always be one step ahead of your dog.



    • Pulling on the lead
    • Jumping up
    • Toileting in the house
    • Barking
    • Digging in the garden
    • Mouthing
    • Biting
    • Chewing

    And any other sort of waggly chaos you can name!

    ⚡ Jess rescued our family and pup from chaos and confusion. She is highly skilled, attuned, thoughtful and patient. We had a 9 month old pup, Whyla, two small children and were completely at a loss with how to manage. The whole family was growing increasingly frustrated and Whyla increasingly unruly and at times, aggressive.  Then we found Jess. She turned our world around. She taught us how to give Whyla what she needed and showed Whyla a new way to be herself, calmly. We are forever grateful for Jess in our lives and can’t recommend her enough!!!

    ⚡Jess has been such a godsend with the raising of my GSP pup Verona. We started her early with training and taught her the basics which has set her to be such a delightful easy addition to the family. Jess has also always been so fabulous with her dog sitting, letting me book her in last minute, and Rona is always so excited to see her. She’s felt like her Aunty. Thanks so much for all you’ve done for us Jess.

    ⚡ Jess is exceptionally smart, knowledgeable and intuitive when it comes to dogs. Alfie is a small reactive and (was) very difficult to train. We actually thought he was a little slow (sorry Alfie). Having tried everything from advice from vets, YouTube clips and behavioural training books we asked for a recommendation from our dog walker. Enter Jess! After a few weeks Alfie is much less reactive, calm and turns out he's a smart boy! Alfie used to react to ANYTHING from lunging at other dogs, cars, garbage bins etc! It's so nice to him calm and happy on walks now and just taking in the environment.We only wish we knew about Jess when we first adopted Alfie Thank you so much Jess! ⚡

    But don't worry at all if you're not sure what you need! We ALWAYS start with a 90 minute Introduction Session ($180) to determine the best way forward. 

    During this session we'll examine your dog's behaviour and talk to you about your experience with your dog. We'll talk about your goals.

    From there we'll put together a plan with you. Sometimes the solutions can be more simple than you think! Sometimes more behaviour modification might be needed. Each dog is a unique puzzle and we love to help you solve the puzzle. 

    The chances are your dog wants positive changes as much as you do. So let's get started!
