Welcome to Pawfection Dog Training


**Please note ** 002

We are back in Central Winds Park from this Saturday September 7th 2019

at your usual class times!


The difference between “Ordinary” and “extraordinary” is the “extra”

Extra care, Extra value, Extra experience,

– Welcome to Pawfection Dog Training where we specialize in EXTRAORDINARY!

… (All without the “Extra” expense!)

Have a look at this short video as a taster of who we are and what we do

(remember we also specialize in behavioral training in your home)

Oh, and by the way contrary to what the chronically under qualified “trainers” are telling people on the phone to try to put them off, we ARE NOT “all shock collars” – unlike most, we are properly qualified and experienced and have a variety of methods all of which work on a NO PAIN, NO PUNISHMENT, distraction based correction and appropriately timed praise and reward.

We pick the right method to suit your dog (not “one method” we learned from a franchise or a manufactured TV “trainer”)

There are great pet dog trainers, “Celebrity dog trainers”, “dog trainers to celebrities”, behaviorists, Police dog trainers and handlers, bomb dog teams, and teachers out there but very few in the world who combine all of this together in one package as Darryl does.

 www.angieslist.com  Search for Pawfection dog training we have more A rated reviews than any other dog training company.

When it comes to reviews of course we can’t please absolutely everyone all of the time and occasionally we do have to say no to some people if something is going to be detrimental to their dog – this will very occasionally result in a “bad review rant” (in fact generally its usually only unhappy people that are moved to try to beat a company up so we do amazingly well to have a satisfaction rate in the very high 90’s!) we do our very best to make everyone happy and will always strive to do so but we will never lower our standards or give in to demands that will be injurious or detrimental to a dog. If you see the occasional bad review rant, read the reply and it should explain what has happened, other than that enjoy the huge amount of happy reviews!
