Do You Have Problems With Your Dog?

So you are a DYI-er, want to do the training yourself, but need direction?

Are you a very busy person and don’t want to sign up for weeks and weeks of expensive dog training lessons?

I will show you very simple BUT highly effective exercises and techniques which will let you discover the secret behind our dog training method.

Our training method is force free ( no choke chains or e-collars ), gentle, humane and not overly reliant on treats and food to bribe the dog.
It is about understanding where the dog is coming from and getting the dog to listen to you.

For your convenience, I will come to your home and give you a completely tailored solution for your dog.
The advantage of coming to you is that I can see the dog in their natural environment and sort out the issue right then and there.

About me

Portrait of dog trainer Monika Taus

I am an enthusiastic professional trainer for dogs and their humans.

I believe in strong leadership but that does not mean dictatorship.

With my help you can win your dog’s mind and become your dog’s leader through communicating in a language they can understand.

I found my love for dogs a long time ago and having been a mobile hairdresser for many years, going to people’s houses, I have encountered lots of dogs, humans and their relationship to one another.

After studying and being certified from Dog Trainer Academy, I can now fully engage in balancing affection and discipline in training adorable dogs.

I firmly believe in positive reinforcement and communication through body language. Instinctively I have always had a great bond with dogs and now have the training to do the job.

It is in a dog’s DNA to want direction. Dogs want a job inside the family unit or with the human they belong to.

I love to share my knowledge for the benefit of people and dogs – I like to challenge myself!

  • Laurel, Mindy and Pepsi

    Dear Monika,

    I wanted to write and thank you for the time you spent with us recently, to assist us with our two dogs.
    Thank you for taking the time to really get to know our dogs as well as our family dynamic.

    I think that makes all the difference, as training that works with our circumstances is the only kind that will stick!
    Our Dalmatian Mindy is as stubborn as ever, but she is learning and improving, thanks to your help and ongoing support.
    Your kind, friendly manner was just what we needed, coupled with the right amount of firm boundaries, is helping us as much as the dogs!

    Your love for all dogs is evident, and we are grateful to you for spending time, and showing such great patience with us all.
    Highly recommended, I have shared your details with a number if are truly wonderful!!

    My 1.5-year-old Jack Russell was having issues with reactivity towards other dogs and people. My session with Monika really helped me better understand how he was feeling and gave me some really good advice on how I can help him be less nervous.

    It's only been a few days and Vm already noticing a huge change in his behaviour. I would 100% recommend Monika for anyone having issues!

  • Donald and Judy Crombie, McMahons Point NSW

    Monika came to our house to provide further training advice for Kira, our exuberant 7-month-old Beaglier. After a week of following her suggestions, we notice a positive change in Kira. Monika's calm, deliberative training methods are of benefit to Kira and to us and make us more confident that Kira will grow into a well-behaved and happy animal companion.

  • Anna James

    I found Monika when I was looking for a puppy trainer. She had lots of wonderful recommendations on Google, so I decided to make an appointment. When Monika called me, I immediately knew I had made the right decision for our 12-week-old golden retriever puppy, Max.

    Straightaway, Monika assessed our situation and offered me lots of advice on how she could help us train Max to be a calmer & obedient puppy.

    Monika came to our house for a three-hour training sessions. From the second she walked through the front door, the training commenced as she ignored Max's overexcited bouncy behaviour.

    Monika shared lots of insights, tips and recommendations for how to calm a puppy down. She even helped us with some positive play between my cat, Hector, and Max. Monika's helped us with "leave it", feeding times, crate, car trips and general socialisation to ensure Max is happy and secure around other people and dogs.

    I couldn't recommend Monika enough...
