Our beautiful rescue dog Buster was all charm and boisterous fun but totally without any training when he came to us aged 7 months, We contacted Hans because of his barking and extreme separation anxiety. He couldn't be left alone and we were trapped in the house.

But thanks to Hans guidance and his patient and caring manner, Buster is happy, relaxed and is getting the hang of sitting, staying, not jumping and being more attentive and much better behaved. Hans was also a great support giving us the tools and confidence to continue his work.

Thanks from Penny and Buster Toorak.,
I was pretty desperate when I contacted Hans for help with Tyson, my 1 year old Doberman. I live in Bali and I had already spent many hours and money in training him, without the wanted results. The local dog trainer even suggested to put him down as she believed Tyson would always be a problem. But I wasn't ready to give up on him.

Hans came to Bali and stayed with us during 5 days. He gave me the tools and encouragement to deal with Tyson’s character. I now have a stronger, safer and healthier bond with him. Hans was very knowledgeable and helpful and was able to answer the many questions I had. Tyson reacted so well to Hans’ approach and thanks to him we made enormous progress.

I couldn't have done it without Hans’ expertise!,
I highly recommend Hans as a dog/trainer and behaviour specialist ,he has taught me so much about dogs and people he has changed my mind set when it comes to handling dogs.

Our dog Harry the staffy was a demolishing expert, we took Harry to Hans and Susan's K9Coach puppy school and Hans also gave us private lessons at our home and engaged the whole family. Harry has turned out to be a brilliant family dog ,when we walk down the street people pull us aside and ask how come your dog is so well behaved, I just say because Harry and me have had training from the best in the business Hans and Susan from K9Coach I always recommend K9Coach to family friends when I see their dogs are developing bad habits instead of being a friend and companion. Hans is very passionate about his job and takes his job serious to help people and dogs. So just listen learn and do what he says and you will have the perfect companion

Adrian from Box Hill happy dog owner 11/13,
We contacted Hans as soon as we adopted our one year old Cavoodles. They had been rescued from a puppy farm and came to us timid and in need of toilet training and socialisation. Hans has been wonderful in helping us with Scarlett and Tilly. Our girls are becoming confident and happy. They love meeting other dogs in the park and a cuddle of course. Jan 2014
Pip Lucas,
Our lab x border collie Jessie has always been a dream dog.......or so we thought. It wasn't until just recently at almost 3 yrs old, that she started to get destructive, out of nowhere! Nothing had changed in our lives, so we had no idea where this had come from. I googled a little, and came to the conclusion that it may have been stress of some kind, or separation anxiety. Either way, I knew we needed help, as nothing we were doing was working. So I called Hans to enquire about his sessions, and just on the phone he gave me around 20-30 mins of his time, before I'd even booked in a session with him! I was so impressed with everything he could tell me, and educate me on just over the phone, that of course I was going to book him in to come see our Jessie. He was amazing with her, and gave us a lot of insight as to why her destructiveness had started occurring. We learned so much! He then gave us a heap of exercises to do with her, and within a week the destructiveness had stopped! Another week went by and still nothing. We were so happy and couldn't believe that it just took this one session with Hans! If Jessie ever starts to play up again, I can promise that we will be calling Hans straight away. Jan 2014

I just have to say I'm blown away by your super fast communication and excellence in Customer service. My girl Flute is hard to fit as she is between two sizes, it was fantastic to so quickly and easily order to return it for another size. I will most certainly be back and I will be sending my friends!

The training was delivered in a calm relaxed manner. Hans always had the dogs' best interest as number 1.

Ziggy and I are just starting our training. When I put her SDT jumper on, she turns into serious I'm working mode. And her pride is viable. Every day is a joy for both of us. Verity

jenni bailey,

Valuable. Harry hasn’t had any other socialisation and as he is quite dominant we have been reluctant to do this ourselves.

Enjoyed the training – tips + exercises helpful. Good to see progress of other dogs also.

Bruce & I have made more progress in 2 classes here than 8 weeks of puppy school. I received more assistance & knowledge in 2 sessions with Hans than anything else I’ve tried
RH/Juv 09/13

It was great.. To be able to have boisterous Buster there almost asleep on the ground next to me with so many dogs he would normally have jumped on, jumped over and just wrestled to the ground. It has given me great tools to work with him..
