Through Training And Fun

GET THE BEST OUT OF YOUR DOG

“Like children, dogs are entitled to and actually need an education. Such training is valuable because it gives your dog a sense of security and increases their sense of responsibility, and they enjoy it. Every interaction you have with your dog is an opportunity for training.”
Kat Stephenson

Our Passion, Your Pooch

Dogs Are Us is here to help dog owners better understand their relationship with their dogs through education and trust-building.

The owner, Kat, studied with the National Dog Trainer’s Foundation (NDTF) in Australia and continued learning with other experienced dog trainers. She brings both knowledge and passion to understanding any problems dog owners face and providing the best help.

By building trust in our relationships with our dogs through training, we can give them the best care, and we offer ongoing support. Good foundations are the place to start.

By understanding how our dogs learn, we can create sound obedience and a great working relationship with them

Testimonials

Kat was amazing with helping us with Summer. She was clear and constructive and helped answer all my niggly little questions. She helped introduce simple no nonense steps that help us to communicate with our pup and get her on board with training. I trust dogs are Us so much we have Summer booked in for puppy sitting when we go away.
Happy Dog
Had golden Labrador in the board and train, the difference a week of one on one training made! The information and ability to read puppy's personality and behavior was huge help in the on going training back at home. We were tearing our hair out and frustration at night training was setting in, the calm after board and train was hugely noticeable!
Happy Dogs
Kat is super friendly and very knowledgeable on dogs. She has helped us with our 6 month old pup and also helped teach us. Recommend her one on one sessions and puppy school
Happy Dog
We did Kat’s 4 week training course with our 6 month old schnauzer and found the training was invaluable. We have since caught up twice with Kat as we address certain behaviours that have developed and each time Kat has given us excellent training knowledge to work with our now 9 month old puppy. Simple and insightful knowledge, i would highly recommend Kat to future dog owners who desire to have well behaved and socialised pets that are a joy to be around
