Hi, I'm Tara 


10 Years of Canine Training Experience

Hi I'm Tara and this is Tully, and the big boy on my home page is my old boy Jed. These guys, along with the foster dogs that have come our way, have been great mentors.

I'm a certified behavioural dog trainer, puppy school instructor and have been a qualified Veterinary Nurse since 2005. The Northern Beaches has been my home during this time.


I love my job. I love watching my clients and their dogs work together.  I love watching, observing and learning about behaviour - dog and human alike.

If you're from around Mona Vale, Narrabeen, Warriewood, Elanora Heights, Ingleside, Bayview or Newport areas you may have seen me around the traps, likely with a dog. Or maybe we have met during my vet nursing days at Mona Vale Veterinary Hospital. Either way, I'm looking forward to meeting you and your dog and helping you build a better, stronger and lasting relationship.
