Responsive Dog Training

Positive Response Dog Training is owned and operated by Dee Scott, a qualified National Behavioural Trainer with over 25 years of extensive experience in the dog world.

Our Training Styles

Dee and her staff are specialised trainers, working with a variety of issues using force free training. Force Free Training is NOT just about food! Operant conditioning as it’s known is a method of learning that occurs when an animal makes an association between a behaviour (Sit) and the reward (food, toys, pat). The reward helps to increase the animal's behaviour so that it earns as it learns. We work with food primarily because it’s the easiest source and show you how to fade out the food over a period of time so that your dogs are responding to hand and voice signals – first time – evey time.

Our Staff

Our staff undertake the complex national trainers course with Delta Society Australia. They are also mentored by Dee and undertake an in house training program prior to qualifying. This enables us to provide a high standard of service to the community with exceptionally qualified staff.

Our Classes

Group classes teach you how to control your dog in an everyday environment and are a great way to condition good manners with basic obedience. Your dog learns to listen and respond to you while in a class situation around other dogs and people. This is part of socialisation and is critical to helping your dog succeed

We offer a variety of Beginner courses as listed below: Click here to visit our locations and classes
