“Highly Recommend”

I took my puppy Woody through the puppy training classes that were held in Napier. Jude is an awesome teacher. She not only showed me how to train my dog, she also trained me in the process. I’ll definitely be taking Woody back for the intermediate class. I highly recommend Dog Guru’s training methods.

Class was really educational

Class was really educational ! Amanda did very well helping us and giving us tips on how to better control and train our dog. We feel like Mugsy learned a lot and most importantly had a very good time meeting and learning with other dogs. Defs recommend this class !!

My Pup Loved it

Our trainer Mandy is great. My Rottie just loves going to his class with her. I think he is more obedient for Mandy than me lol

It Simply Works !

Lovely knowledgeable trainer. Well structured class. Great learning and lots of fun. Happy dogs. Would recommend to every dog owner who wishes to improve their control of their dog based on a dog’s natural behaviour and communication. It simply works !

Five Star Service

The Dog Guru lessons gave us all the information we needed to ensure that I could continue with training after the sessions were completed, and resulted in a dog that is sociable and will obey commands…or at least most of them 🙂 !

If you have a puppy, or need some upskilling for your existing dog, then don’t look past Dog Guru. The course was well run by knowledgeable trainer

Great Course

Great Beginner’s course, confident calm and consistent teaching, depth of knowledge re trouble shooting specific to our pet. Good opportunity to socialise dogs. Milo absolutely loves training and we enjoy her being trained!

Dog Whisperer

Our trainer was basically a dog whisperer. Although I couldn’t make all off the classes, she was awesome with all dogs of all breeds and ages and she was patient with the dogs (AND their owners). Would recommend the class to others for sure ! Thank you from all of us

20/01/2017 - Alice, Jarrad and Marley Pup xx

We went with the intention of learning a few basic commands and socialisation for our dogs, we got so much more !!
By the third lesson the dogs were having a great time with their new buddies, still noisy but very happy. They didn’t completely master all the commands but we have a great platform to work from

Interesting and Informative

The Beginners and Intermediate courses were interesting and informative.  I took a lot of new things away with me to teach my dog, especially how to get my dog back to me when distracted.

Adam is a great trainer and is very friendly and approachable and always ready with a hint or tip on how to do things better, he also has the patience of a saint and remains very calm throughout the training. This is my first dealings with Dog Guru and I wouldn’t hesitate to recommend their training to others. Thank you for the great training.
