The Gentle Modern School of Dog Training
We teach both dogs and handlers kindly and positively!
Our aim is to help you to have fun and success when training your dog using The Gentle Modern Method of Dog Training
We will also assist you with problems you may be experiencing.
The Gentle Modern Method of Dog Training was developed by the late David Weston in the early 1970's
David was the pioneer of dog training using positive reinforcement in Australia and the first person to train and socialise dogs from 8 weeks of age. He was a man ahead of his time. David’s passion in life was for everyone to train their dogs in a kind, gentle, modern, effective way.
David’s Gentle Modern School of Dog Training is now run by his wife, Ruth, on the Bellarine peninsula and by Amanda in Melbourne.
Our instructors are all experienced dog training instructors who are members of The Gentle Dog Trainers Association Inc.
The school is a registered animal business under State Government legislation.
Your dog is with you for the long haul. We'd be honoured to be with you along that journey. Work with us and start a relationship. Ask us questions, share triumphs, tell us the low points. If we can help you, we will. If we can be a listening ear for any disappointment, let us know. If we can 'join' your celebration, we will.
