Dog training for confident dogs and happy humans! 

Skypuppy School specialises in group classes that offer a fun and structured learning environment for dog owners of Canberra. Our classes have a focus on life skills such as coming when called, and social responsibility like greeting people calmly. But we also look at the bigger picture, to help owners to better understand and genuinely connect with their dogs. 

Chasing, chewing, digging, barking, pulling and jumping are behaviours that can drive us crazy. But your dog wasn't born with all the skills needed to live harmoniously in your household and what we see as problems, are often natural behaviours that let's face it, our dogs love to do! 

At Skypuppy School, we are dedicated to helping families address these challenges. We believe that dogs with clear expectations and fulfilling activities are less likely to get into trouble. Our approach emphasises building strong relationships, establishing predictable patterns, and incorporating play as a fundamental aspect of training.

When you train with Skypuppy School, you join a community dedicated to nurturing well-rounded, happy pets. Our holistic approach views training as an ongoing journey rather than a one-time task.


Dogs have co-evolved with humans over thousands of years. However, our contemporary lifestyle often leaves them with unmet instincts, leading to behaviours that may be perceived as problems. As a Certified Family Dog Mediator®, my goal is to assist you in gaining a deeper understanding of who your dog is, and how best to provide for their needs while also meeting yours. 


A Family Dog Mediator® is a pet professional who has undergone education to assess and comprehend an animal's L.E.G.S.®:

(Learning - Environment - Genetics - Self).


Each aspect of an animal's L.E.G.S.® plays a crucial role in shaping who they are, and WHY they behave in a certain way. Our classes seek to recognise this and groups are kept small to allow for personalised attention specific to you and your unique dog.
