My name is Mark Murray and I have more than 40 years experience as a professional dog trainer. I offer these dog training services.....


1. Weekly Classes to Prepare for ANKC Obedience Trials

    Held at my training grounds at the Longlea Recreational Reserve on a Friday morning, these        classes are for clients who are competing in Obedience, Rally or Tracking competitions.

2. Weekend Workshops, one day Seminars & Short Presentations on Training Techniques

    I can provide Workshops for Obedience Clubs and Training Groups to assist your members          with their ANKC Trial preparation training. I will come to your grounds and provide both                'hands-on' training and classroom video sessions to ensure your members get the results              they want. Go to the 'Trial Results' tab and see the great results my clients are achieving in          the Trial ring.

3. Look under the "Dog Training Tips" tab for many articles I have written on dog training              techniques, dog management advice and the care & maintenance of dogs.
