I am unable to take on any new clients in Adelaide
As of the end of May, I will not be offering any more services in Adelaide. I will be transferring my business to the Mornington Peninsula / Frankston area and surrounding suburbs in Victoria as of July 2015. My recommendation is to contact Scott at Canine Connect

Dog training - Dog Behaviour Modification - Dog Rehabilitation
I continually get asked "so how many dogs have you trained then?"
I lost count after the first 10,000
My name is Mark Singer, and I have been working with and training dogs in a professional capacity for over 34 years. I am a former RAAF Police Dog and Drug Detector Dog Handler/Trainer, having served 12 years in that capacity. For the past 20 years since discharging from the RAAF my focus has been on dog behaviour modification and rehabilitation specialising in dog aggression and anxiety, and helping dog owners have well balanced and harmonious relationships with their dogs. I am well known and respected throughout Australia for my knowledge on dog instincts, behaviour, and drives. My natural ability with dogs is well renowned throughout Australia. I am a highly regarded and respected dog trainer and behaviourist and recommended by many vets, breeders, boarding kennels, pet shops, and other dog related businesses, and also more importantly by my peers throughout Australia.
My approach is all about BALANCE
I do not subscribe to the theory of 'positive-only' training or behaviour modification. Dogs are no different to any other animal including humans, in that they need not only affection, but discipline, guidance and leadership. Sure to encourage the right behaviours our approach should be positive, and therefore includes rewarding acceptable behaviours. However when necessary, to help extinguish certain unwanted behaviours, we may need to include aversives. A balanced approach to training and behaviour modification is required to have a well behaved and well balanced dog. We should never limit ourselves to believing that there is a one method suits all ideology, and that handing out treats is all we need to do to solve all of our dogs behavioural issues, as this only limits our ability to help our dogs.
Is your dog well balanced, stress and anxiety free?
Inviting me into your home for a couple hours will change the way you relate to your dog. You will be amazed at how simple it can be to have a well balanced and well behaved dog, that is a joy to own. Once we understand our dogs relationship with us from its point of view, and also understand how our thoughts, emotions, body language and general interaction affects our dog, we can work on these to help ensure a more balanced and happier dog.. Which not only helps our dog, but also helps us have a more rewarding and fulfilling relationship with our beloved dog..
This is a little thing I did for Totally Wild. I conducted 2 home consultations with Totally Wild filming them, both were aired on their TV program. I decided not to do anymore, as I didn't feel that a 4 minute edited version of a 2 hour plus consultation really conveyed all the information I passed on to the clients during my consult. I did however very much enjoy working with the crew from Totally Wild.
