Over the years, we’ve worked with hundreds of dog owners in Melbourne.  It’s always great to hear that these dogs are well adjusted with their families or in their jobs.  If you would like to leave a review for our team, please visit Google Plus, Facebook or Yellow Pages.

Georgia & Ollie

“We’ve been coming to see Chris at Positive K9 for about two years. We got Ollie as a rescue dog and Chris has been really good at helping us understand Ollie’s personality and traits, given what he’s come from.”

Extremely happy with the results

We have been using Chris Loverseed’s service to raise some of our puppies prior to having them sent up to NSW.  The complex task of puppy raising is a skill that can go horribly wrong in the hands of unskilled people, resulting in disastrous long term results.

Chris has consistently delivered our puppies as confident, well balanced and sociable dogs who have benefitted tremendously from a terrific head start.  We have been extremely happy with the results we have seen from Chris and would recommend him to anyone looking to improve their canine relationship.

Emmy & Owners

“Chris and Geraldine have been really helpful in teaching us what we need to do to get Emmy to perform in the right way. She has been very quick to learn how to sit and drop and we wouldn’t have been able to do that without their help.”

Dedication, passion and insight

My name is Paula Cochrane of SIEGERTAL ROTTWEILERS……I have been breeding Rotties in excess of 30 years. I first met Chris when he accompanied a very good friend of his to assist her in purchasing/selecting & training her first Rottweiler. I quickly learned of his absolute dedication towards achieving his ultimate goal: raising that pup to be a balanced, happy & obedient family dog as well as working/training towards competing with him as a top level working canine athlete.

During this time Chris has raised (3) of our Rotties…….nurturing, training & imprinting them throughout their critical period of 8 – 16 weeks & beyond. We have since all become very good friends & have spent many hours discussing various training methods as well as training dogs here on the property: I respect Chris’s dedication, passion & insight whilst working through any issue.

I have no problem recommending Chris Loverseed of Positive K9 Training for any of your dog training needs and in fact include his contact details every time I sell a new Rottie pup! Many of our puppy buyers have referred to Chris should a training/behaviour issue arise….he’s able to quickly offer advice so as to sort out those issues & prevent them from becoming a long term problem.

Rick & Zeus

“We’ve been coming to Positive K9 Training for just over two years. We’ve found Chris and his team to be extremely professional. If your dog has any behavioural issues, you always get a solution here.”

Your help was invaluable

Dear Chris, Our family would just like to say a BIG thank you for everything that you have done, and will continue to do for Rocco! Not being the animal person in our house, but being the one to spend the most time with Rocco, your help was invaluable. I almost felt like a new mother all over again. I honestly didn’t know where to start. I wouldn’t have know his top to his bottom without your help! For your help and patience (with me and not just with our dog!) I will always be thankful.

The time and effort that we have invested in Rocco with you, will no doubt be instilled in him into his adulthood. The time will continue to invest in him with you, will lay the foundations for the perfect companion for our family. Everyone comments on how much of a beautifully behaved dog he is, and I think that comes to your influence with him. Like children, the way we act turns them into who they will become later in life. A continuous journey. I’m glad and relieved that you are on this journey with us. Thank you so much!

Mary & Scout

“We’ve been coming to Positive K9 Training for three years. When Scout was a puppy, she was very anxious so all the trainers here were very good with her, very gentle, and we learned lots of things so she became more self-confident.”

Thank you so much

Thanks Chris for your help with my anxious Ridgeback. I really appreciated that your training was patient with both me and my dog, teaching me why my dog was behaving as he was, and giving me useful actions to overcome the stressful behaviours. It helped me a lot that you took the time to explain, demonstrate, and re-explain where I needed it. Thank you so much for your positive training.

Callie & Bonne

“We’ve been coming here for 15 months. The ground-work that Chris and the other trainers have done, in breaking down the training step by step, assisted Bonne, even in the 5 months when she wasn’t able to come to training.”

Extremely happy with the results

When I first got my new puppy Arthur, I didn’t know what I was in for with the biting and whining. Within the first session with Chris, he taught us how  to approach dealing with Arthur when he does things that are undesirable and how to reward for when he did something good! Chris also introduced and educated us to a variety of things we were not aware of such as how to train the puppy to walk nicely on a lead. Since that first session, Arthur has been extremely good on walks and automatically responds to us.

Further, Chris keeps the sessions nice and relaxed so that neither the puppy or the owner gets too overwhelmed with information. He also brings a bag of tricks full of treats and toys to aid the dogs learning process. One of the best things about Chris, is that he is very quick in responding to questions that come up between sessions. The thing that I most recommend with regard to hiring Chris is that the sessions with Arthur can be done at a time most suited to me, without having to reschedule other commitments or simply not attend them.

The experience overall has been fantastic and we are lucky to have found Chris who helped make little Arthur’s life and our lives much easier and happier.

Michelle & Bobby

“We’ve been coming to Positive K9 Training for a year and half now and I have to say that I’m loving it.  Chris and the rest of the staff are just amazing.  Any questions or problems we have, we can just come up and ask them.”

Positive K9 training was a godsend!

I have 2 dogs, a Labrador and a Cavoodle. My Cavoodle could jump, climb or go through our fence. We would constantly be blocking it off and repairing it. He would always find a way. This was a big concern until I tried K9 training. Chris established that he suffered from anxiety and showed me exactly what had to be done. It has completely removed our former concerns that my dog would escape and get lost or hit by a car. My Labrador would constantly jump on us and visitors. We also couldn’t bring him inside the house.

Every time we opened the door he would just run through the house. The training is essential but not difficult in any way. After that short period of training, the dogs were comfortable, they relaxed and appeared to be happy with the boundaries. Chris has solved all of our problems and showed us what has to be done on a day to day basis. I also appreciate the fact that i could call Chris to ask him a question and he would give me advise over the phone. Positive K9 training was a godsend!

Mija & Alke

“This is my dog Alke and I’m Mija.  Our goal for the dog is to turn her into a hearing assistance dog so Chris has given us lots of good advice on how to start our foundational training.”
