Obedience lessons

More commonly than often thought, problem dogs can cause issues with home-life both within the family and the dog itself. In these cases, it’s important to seek professional help to resolve or prevent the issue from reoccurring.

Carrying expertise as a professional dog trainer and expert in canine aggression, Basil Theofanides is well-versed in dealing with problems like aggressiveness; which, when left unattended, can be severely detrimental. Command Dog Training can assess the situation and devise an approach to dealing with this behaviour.

problem dogs

In less severe cases, obedience lessons are often required to give owners the confidence of handling their dog in everyday circumstances. To do this, we offer both basic and advanced levels, allowing you to strengthen the bond between you and your friend, and also gain the much-needed respect to ensure consistent, positive results in the future. This kind of dog training is important to establishing a level of control from the outset.

Who We Are

Established in 1989, the school has won numerous awards for its outstanding customer service. This success has been achieved through honesty, fairness, commitment to best practices in training methods, customer focus and continuous self-improvement.

Training Methods

There is a wealth of dog training methods, theories and equipment. New technologies and advances in behavioural science offer an enormous number of adaptations and choices. Opinions vary on the way we treat and train animals and to what degree we use rewards and corrections in the training process. As a professional dog training school, we incorporate only the best practices in the industry.

The dog training community is pretty much polarized into two separate camps, that is, the “Totally Positive Trainers” and their more “Traditional” counterparts.

Clients Reviews

Katie S and Leo
Jess was amazing and super helpful with every question I asked! I couldn’t be happier with the service she provided and guidance she gave us with our first puppy.
Angela W and Gus
Lisa has been fantastic. Supportive, encouraging and I have loved all her tips. One of the main concerns was to find a training school that was small, structured and caring.
Brigid D and Linda
Every session was great and I really appreciated one session being cancelled due to the horrible weather. All fabulous.
Chelsey O and Walter
The program was excellent! It would have been wonderful to have had more attendees but honestly this meant we had more attention so we were very happy!
