no pain, no force, no fear

Welcome to Tails Up Dog Training ...

... where we train you to train your dog

Positive reinforcement training in the Southern Highlands

At Tails Up Dog Training we believe that dogs can and should be trained without any pain, force or fear.

Not only do we believe this – we know that evidence backs this up. Dogs trained with reinforcement rather than punishment turn out to be calmer, happier and more willing to do what we want than dogs trained using other methods.

I found the trainers and team very friendly. They showed great insight into my dog’s specific training needs. Tails Up provided excellent resources that I can continue to refer to for my dog’s future training.

Edna was an excellent teacher giving clear instructions tailored to each dog's individual needs and behaviours. Group classes were fun and progressed at a good pace. Edna obviously loves dogs.

Tails Up has been a godsend! Daisy is a very active Cavoodle and my husband and I thought we would never be able to train her. Edna has been so patient with 'Crazy Daisy'. The skills are achievable and with practice Daisy is becoming a social, well behaved puppy. Edna has also patiently trained me to a much better puppy owner.

We learnt everything relevant to having a social dog with lifelong skills (for both of us). Our family can take care Rosie out knowing she will be well behaved and what to do if things go awry..

Highly recommended! Edna and Margaret are excellent at training us and our dog with simple techniques. Our puppy went from puppy classes to Obedience with Tails Up and they were so helpful and took care to ensure we understood each stage. The training has set us up well to ensure we have a happy well behaved dog.

Archie is a rescue dog who had no training at all. He is much calmer now and responds to quite a few commands. He is still a bit ‘crazy’ as he is only a one year old kelpie cross but we are getting there.

Tails Up is a fantastic program which has helped educate me and my dog on what is right and wrong when training. I would recommend this program and it has improved my own dog knowledge.

Although progress was slow our rescue dog had we not gone to tails up Cody would not have settled so well. The little achievements were so rewarding and valuable. The trainer's patience and understanding helped us as pet owners. The little tips and personal service was worth the effort. I would recommend Tails Up to everyone.

The skills learnt in the course were very valuable. Cosmo was always too excited around dogs yet at home quiet. He has improved incredibly over the course. Skills like leave it, stay touch and focus have been invaluable.
