Barking under control in only 12hrs! 14 Feb 2023

Thank you for a decent night's sleep. It's been a long time since I slept that much. Two little barking sessions around midnight and I knew exactly what to do.. I cannot believe this. So again I have to thank you. Never in my wildest dreams have I expected changes within 12hours.

So much less stressed 10 Feb 2023

I am so pleased that we had Tanya come and teach us the 5 Golden Rules. The dogs and I are a lot less stressed. No more yelling at the dog to stop barking. It has really changed my whole mindset and given me the confidence to deal with my rambunctous Rotti and anxious Amstaff. The ongoing support is also really helpful. Tanya is excellent at her job. Can highly recommend her

So much improvement 10 Feb 2023

Very informative and so helpful, only a month into training and seeing so many positive improvements. Highly recommend.

WOW - what a difference a day makes! 15 Jan 2023

What a difference Tanya makes. Tanya certainly knows her stuff and certainly knows how to pass on all her knowledge and experience. My Jazzy is a re-homed dog and I called on Tanya for some advice with regard to a couple of her little quirks. Tanya very quickly (and literally) had Jazzy eating out of her hand. We have put things into practice and Jazzy is responding beautifully. Yes… what a difference Tanya makes!!!

Brilliant! 09 Oct 2022

Tanya helped us with our boy Boris today and she was brilliant. Now it is our turn. I would recommend Tanya to anyone who needs a little help with their fur babies.

So much calmer 20 Sep 2022

Having Tanya come and observe in our home to get the full story behind what was going on with our dog, Narla, made such a difference. At first it felt like information overload but having Tanya there for ongoing support and reassurance has made it so much easier. It's been 2 weeks and Narla is so much calmer, and is doing amazingly well learning the neighbours horse isn't a danger. It's also helped us a lot following the 5 Golden Rules.

Would highly recommend 20 Sep 2022

Thank you Tanya for coming and teaching us the 5 golden rules and laying down the foundations for us to better understand Doug and to work on his recall, attitude and the pack psychology as a whole. The session was very beneficial to us all and we can’t wait to see not only Doug’s, but our progress as leaders. Would highly recommend.

Connected the missing dots 20 Sep 2022

I'm very pleased I enlisted Tanya's help with my spoodle, Jack. She's connected the missing dots for how I interact with him. I now have a better understanding about life from a dog's perspective, which other training I've done has omitted. The Five Golden Rules definitely work and have given me the confidence to successfully address Jack's behaviour in a calm, controlled and effective manner. Tanya is terrific at explaining the 'why' and the 'how' and I highly recommend her. Thank Tanya for all your help and patience. Jack and I are so pleased we found you.

Zac our Cairn Terrior x Staffie 01 May 2022

We have loved the changes in our Zac with Tanya's 5 Golden Rules and regular Doggy Daycare at Tanyas for socialisation. Zac is now 3 years old and a very happy, calm dog. Zac was running away and extremely high energy before we started with Tanya.

Our home has totally changed? 08 Feb 2022

Tanya was brilliant with both of our dogs, and we started to see results very quickly by following the 5 Golden Rules. Our huge puppy, Doug, is walking so well on his lead and his reaction to visitors to our home has totally changed. Our very nervous rescue pup, Isla, is so much calmer, she sleeps better, walks more confidently and is just happier in general. We are still working together to continue with their training and it has changed our household for the better. If you have been thinking about getting some support, advice or training for your furry family members then we would definitely recommend Calm Canines. Thanks Tanya!

Results in 2 hours! 03 Feb 2022

Tanya provided a great friendly and professional service. After just two hours of training we had noticeable results with my Red Heeler, a month on and we’re still improving. Highly recommend!

Immediate Results! 22 Jan 2022

Tanya was absolutely amazing with helping us train our 5 yr old dog, we saw a huge difference in her just after the appointment! Would definitely recommend Tanya for any dog training!

Unbelievably quick results 25 Oct 2021

Unbelievably quick results just by following the rules! To see the difference in behavior socializing with other dogs and meeting new people without all the stress is amazing. Work still in progress but gives me incentive to continue with Calm Canines approach to a calmer happier dog and owner!!!

Perfect combination of dog training experience and love for animals 25 Oct 2021

Tanya took care of our 2 Irish Wolfhounds while we were on holidays, 3 y.o. Phoebe and more recently 10 months old Aileen. We used to be quite stressed leaving our dogs/pups behind and we have spent quite a long time trying to find the best pet sitter/trainer. And when it comes to Tanya, we think we have found the perfect combination of dog training experience and love for animals. We are from Perth, but the trip to Northam is definitely worth it and we recommend Tanya to anybody who wants to be sure their dog will be in good hands while also having some fun with Norbit, the resident pet

Calmer house all round 25 Oct 2021

Thank you Tanya for your help and advice. Pepper is doing really well - still a work in progress - but the results so far have been amazing. A calmer household all round!

Tanya was fantastic 07 Oct 2021

She showed me the Five golden rules and helped me start putting them in place. This made a huge difference in Archie in only a few days. My mum and I couldn’t believe what a difference it made sooooooo quickly. Thanks Tanya So worth the money and time!

Training worked so quickly 05 Sep 2021

Highly recommend Tanya, it was amazing how quickly Banno responded to her and her skills and knowledge are expansive. It’s a learning curve for both us and our dog, and Tanya’s continued support after her visit has been very beneficial.

Nipped in the bud 05 Jul 2021

Tanya came to our home to help out with our over-excited, high energy 2-yr old retriever X kelpie who had recently started nipping. We could not understand why as she was very spoilt, given lots of exercise and fed well. Tanya helped us to understand the dog's mind and showed us some good strategies for feeding, walking and even patting. These have been very useful and showed immediate results. We still have a long way to go but Sox is improving each day. She is walking nicer, is a lot calmer and barking less. Thanks Tanya!

Great loving second home away from home for my dog 11 May 2021

Tanya has been with us for over two years and truely loves my dog...I trust her with my fur child and couldn't imagine leaving him with anybody else. He has medical issues and needs to be medicated twice a day which is all apart of the great service Tanya provides..highly recommend sending your furry friend here.

Aggression solved 08 May 2021

We sought the expertise of Tanya (Calm Canines) to assess and provide assistance to our adopted 4 year old dog who was showing fear and aggression toward visitors. During our in-home meeting, Tanya gave us insight into dog psychology and provided a training plan with a few simple steps to implement. We were amazed to find an immediate improvement in our dog’s behaviour and have continued to see positive results as we continue to follow the training plan. If you need assistance with training or improving your dogs behaviour, we highly recommend you give Tanya from Calm Canines a call.

Bella 01 May 2021

We contacted Tanya to help us with our 5 month old puppy Bella. She is just getting to the age where she is jumping up at everyone and trying to become the boss. Tanya came to our home and spoke to the whole family, giving guidance & demonstrating great techniques. Bella is still a work in progress, but she has made a massive improvement and is much calmer and better behaved already

Slept in his own bed! 11 Apr 2021

Thank you so much for coming this afternoon and giving us the understanding and skills we need to make Clive a happier and more content doggo!! We have already seen a change in him and are excited to see his improvements. All makes perfect senses. You deliver it really well!!. Thank you! First night and Clive slept in his own bed!!

George the Cavocker 11 Apr 2021

Our 15 month old Cavocker - George, would not come when called, and had “white line” fever if he saw a sheep, bird or cat. Tania spent time with the whole family giving us straight forward guidance and a tried and tested set of rules to follow. George responded straight away and we now feel we are in control rather than our dog.

Zac's transformation 07 Apr 2021

Zac has made amazing progress with us following The 5 Golden Rules in just a few weeks. Zac has recall!!

No more stress 11 Mar 2021

We have always had at least one dog and they have all been an important part of our family. Bella is a rescue dog who was very anxious and had been with several owners when she came to us. Bellas' behavior was causing us a lot of stress and anxiety and we didn't know how to deal with it. We realised that we had changed our lives and behaviors to fit in with her. After meeting Tanya and witnessing her calm, authoritative manner with many different dogs, including Bella, we were thrilled to be able to learn the secrets to her success. The methods for training are the best I have witnessed in 30 years of dog ownership, they are calm and gentle and the atmosphere in our home has become calmer as well. We now know what to do to have our dog behaving in a way that is safe and relaxed for everyone. We have the knowledge, skill set and a clear set of guidelines to follow. Within one week we are already seeing positive changes in Bella's behavior. The benefits of having Tanya come into our home to do the training session included seeing how, using a calm and consistent approach to Bella's inappropriate behavior, resulted in a calmer dog.
