Meet Our Wonderful Trainer

Hello, my name is Athan and I’m a qualified dog trainer based in Hahndorf, SA. I am passionate about forming a trusting relationship with the dogs I work with, to help them learn the skills they need to live confident, fear free lives with their humans. I have been in the industry for three years now and have completed the Karen Pryor Professional Trainers course (KPA-CTP), graduated from the DogBiz Dog Walking Academy, and completed my certification as a Fear Free Professional Trainer.
I live with my wife, 2 kids, our Golden Labrador Pikachu , our Greyhound Gremlin Soup , two cats, and 3 fluffy bantam chickens. Working with dogs has been an amazing career to pursue and I am very grateful to be able to share my knowledge and experience with others and their furry companions.
