5-Star Dog Training in Melbourne
5-Star Dog Training in Melbourne
Owning a dog can be a hugely rewarding experience and we are here to help Melbourne dog owners enjoy a positive relationship with their dogs. With a range of services for dogs and puppies, we will tailor a training or behaviour modification course to you and your pet.
I’ve brought together a team of brilliant trainers to provide Melbourne dog owners with the very best standard of training that we can offer. Visit our team page to meet the Positive K9 Training dog trainers.
Give your puppy the best possible start in life!
Puppies between 8 weeks – 6 months old have access to Positive K9 Training Puppy School. We also provide in-home training for puppies who require a little extra help with their training. Our puppy trainers are committed to helping your puppy reach it full potential!
The ultimate training package for dogs over 6 months of age!
You and your dog get an in-home session tailored to your specific needs. This is followed by group obedience classes to build on skills learned in your in-home session. This package is designed to provide everything you need to help your dog become a safe and trusted member of your family.
For dogs with serious behavioural problems, we offer our Behavioural Training Program. Overcoming serious behaviour issues requires a holistic approach – one that addresses the underlying causes, not just the symptoms. Please contact us to discuss behavioural training and book your initial session.
Let’s help your dog be awesome!

In the time that Positive K9 Training have been providing puppy training and dog training in Melbourne, the team has grown from Head Trainer Chris Loverseed to the current team of eight dog trainers. Together, we provide in-home dog training throughout Melbourne’s Northern and Eastern suburbs, some Eastern rural suburbs and the Mornington Peninsula. Our Sunday classes are held at Reservoir Reserve in Kew each Sunday where all eight trainers help dogs and their owners progress through four levels of obedience and lifestyle training.

I have a balanced approach when it comes to working with dogs. As long as I can remember, I could be found with a dog and lead in hand. I have had a lifelong interest in the way dogs act, and have constantly wanted to bring the best out of every pet. Read more about Chris >

With brilliantly practical advice, Nicki helps dog owners and our Obedience Classes develop skills that allow them to safely navigate their neighbourhood (loose leash walking, of course) and socialise with other dogs and people along the way. Nicki’s top piece of advice for dog owners… Breathe and relax! If you get frustrated while training, just stop for a while. Dogs feel the tension and you’ll likely get better results when you’re calm. Read more about Nicki >
