Train your dog while having fun at Helping Hounds Dog Training!

About Helping Hounds

It’s no secret that dogs thrive on attention and learning, but did you know that humans can benefit just as much from training their pets? It’s therapeutic, and it strengthens the bond between you and your best friend.

Helping Hounds incorporates the recommended practices and techniques of the Australian Veterinary Association and Veterinarian Behaviourists. With these proven systems, we can help you enjoy being with a focused and well-mannered dog.

After 20 years as a dog trainer, Jennifer Alleyne has worked with a variety of breeds. But it was a rescue dog named Ollie, who suffered from anxiety based behaviour issues that really inspired Jennifer’s love for training these wonderful animals.

She combines that first-hand experience with the proven technique of positive-reward training to help other dogs like Ollie to communicate and learn new acceptable behaviours that help them to have a quality relationship with their human family.

 

 

Jennifer’s passion is for all dogs to be allowed to sniff and enjoy their world through this wonderful enrichment game K9 Nose Work®. She was the 2nd in Australia to achieve her Certified Canine K9 Nose Work® Instructor CNWI™ title, having trained with the founders of the sport in the U.S.A. Jennifer continues to provide back to the sport she loves, by hosting ACSW events including Odour Recognition Tests and Nose Work trials here in Victoria. She is a current ACSW Certifying Official and Judge.

Jennifer is a recipient of the Certificate IV in Companion Animal Services through the Delta Society, the premier dog-training organisation in Australia.By regularly attending training seminars and conferences, she stays up to date with canine behaviour and K9 Nosework® training and research. Jennifer has also earned a number of obedience, agility and K9NW titles.
