Where-ever you are in your dog training journey, we have you covered!  

From first time owners who are bringing a new dog into your home, to fun classes to improve your dog’s basic manners, or step it up and learn how you can teach your dog tricks like those seen on wonderdogs!

Tarah (Whitianga) has a Certificate in Canine Behaviour and over 16 years experience in training dogs, and throughout this time she has attended/completed various dog training seminars/courses.  

Sarah (Whenuapai) has a Bachelor of Science, majoring in animal behaviour and 6 years dog training experience - https://www.shinecanine.co.nz/pages/sarah-s-school-whenuapai

They would love to help you learn how to build your relationship with your dog and how, through training and reinforcement, you can help your dog grow into a well-mannered, happy and friendly dog that you are proud to own! Maybe it’s recall, or enthusiastic greetings, or pulling on the lead – building your relationship will help with all of these!

Our classes (and home visits) are in Whitianga/Mercury Bay and now also in Whenuapai (North Shore).

We have recently added a PUPPY PARTY training option (Whitianga only), for puppies from 8-16 weeks
