Hi, I’m Maddie, one of the directors of All Day Dogs. I am also an NDTF (National Dog Trainers Federation) qualified dog trainer.

Like many trainers out there, I started the transition from dog enthusiast to dog trainer because of a personal dog.

Over the last 5 years, I have become interested in many aspects of dog ownership; diet, fulfilment, enrichment, overall health & wellbeing, nail trimming & and training, of course.

I try to stay up to date, listen to podcasts, attend seminars or workshops, and of course, a network of other trainers to chat with when a new situation arises.

In the past, I have fostered quite a few dogs for rescue groups, which is emotionally rewarding, but it also exposes you to a variety of dogs, which was a great learning curve for me.

I have taught group classes with 2 different dog schools over the last few years, and this has also given me exposure to a range of dogs & their humans.

Prior to All Day Dogs opening, I was running a dog walking, pet minding & training business. My favourite thing to do with dogs honestly is anything that dog finds fulfilling. Bushwalks, trick training, scent work, obedience training, play – you can’t forget to play with your dog!

I enjoy competing in dog sports & hope to expand the sports I am actively competing in when time permits.

 

I can’t wait to meet you and your dog!
