The Gentle Modern School of Dog Training
We teach both dogs and handlers kindly and positively!
Our mission, and our passion is to help you to teach your dog important lessons, and support you to develop the knowledge and skills to nurture a well-behaved dog. We will also assist you with problems you may be experiencing.
Our aim is to help you to have fun and success when training your dog using The Gentle Modern Method of Dog Training™. This method 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.
