Dog Training and Behaviour Specialists
A life long fascination with the natural world led us both, sisters Paula and Jo, to study animal behavior. As our knowledge grew, our focus was drawn into the wonderful world of dogs - they truly are our life!
In 2009 we came together to form D for DOG, a boutique business specializing in pet dog training and behavior. More recently, we joined Unitec Institute of Technology where we teach in both the practical and theoretical aspects of canine behavior and training.
We live on a beautiful farm in Hunua with our six dogs, all of whom have taught us invaluable lessons about life with Canis familiarus!
Thank you for choosing D for DOG to be a part of this exciting journey with your dog - we look forward to working with you both.
