Hi

My name is John Blackhawk

Wherever you are on the Central Coast - Peninsular, Hinterland, along the Central Coast Highway past the coastal towns, the Pacific Highway through the Gosford and Wyong areas into the many large population centres beyond Wyong, I will be pleased to help you. So get in touch and get some relief for yourself - and your dog!

COMMON BEHAVIOUR

IN DOGS

Most behavioural issues are a learned response to the experiences and environment in which the dog finds itself. This is why conducting dog training in your home is infinitely more important and more effective. Dogs learn by association of events, by interpreting information through their senses in a canine way. Most dogs aren’t born leaders, which is why they need us humans to provide good leadership for them.
