DOT DOGS evolved from the arrival of Paris and Roubaix, who came in to our lives as 8 week old puppies in 2003. They made us a family and we soon learned that it was all about training us, or "dog owner training" - the dogs already knew what they were doing, and they continue to teach us to this day.
Our "dog owner training" phrase was the creation of the DOT in DOT DOGS.
DOT DOGS is owned and run by Paris & Roubaix's mum - Julie Pearce.
Julie's extensive work has ranged from puppies through to adult dogs, Government approved dog obedience certificate training, behaviour assessments, animal rescue & animal rescue shelter training programs, enrichment programs, pre-puppy training and home set ups for new arrivals (pups, dogs, baby, pocket pets), behaviour modification programs, family training and even dingo puppy training!
Julie qualified as a dog training instructor with the Gentle Dog Trainers Association in 2006, advocates of positive reinforcement - reward based training, and worked as a Senior Instructor at the Kintala Dog Club until 2014.
In 2014 Julie began her work in animal rescue and rehabilitation at Second Chance Animal Rescue. Her deep understanding and experience of rescue dogs has built her reputation in understanding their post adoption training needs and supporting their new families in this journey.
Behaviour and training programs are essential to help dogs cope and succeed in our busy human world. Our training programs are about understanding, bond building, fun and support.
It is Julie's vision to set everyone up for success - the dogs and the people!
