What does Dog Gone Mad do


To put it simply (and not to toot our own horn too much!) - we achieve RESULTS!

Positive, life-changing results!  

This may sound over the top, but when your dog is out of control, your life can become out of control.

Now whether your dog has "gone mad" or just needs some help to become an amazing member of your family, Dog Gone Mad will provide you with the knowledge and the tools to help

create harmony between you and your dog.

We are often told by our clients that they've had other trainers in before, unfortunately unsuccessfully, 

but WE are the ones who have been able to achieve results!

The other big difference with us, we are NOT a franchise - this is our Family Business.  

We won't sell you a package of consults or classes when you don't need them. 

And we won't send you "one of our trainers" to help - we send you us!

We will provide you with a tailored service which suits not just your dog, but you also.
