Gold Coast Dog Behaviour & Training Program

If you’re looking for a dog trainer on the Gold Coast that takes a natural and holistic approach, then let’s get together!

The behaviour and training programs I’ve developed are relationship focussed and based on over 20 years of experience, working with dogs of all ages and breeds.

My committed and supportive approach is respectful to both dog and owner, with the aim to build strong and lasting connections.

Together we can get to a place where you feel happy and relaxed when spending time with your dog.

I’ll empower you to manage your dog’s behaviour in a positive way, no matter what challenges you’re facing.

My Approach to Canine Behaviour Training

My approach to dog behaviour training is to expand your knowledge, empower you and strengthen your relationship with your dog.

Every dog learns differently so we’ll work to understand your companion’s preferred learning environment and how to look out for this as their guardian.

We’ll look closely at your dog’s body language, plus you’ll gain knowledge to understand what they’re communicating about themselves and their surroundings. We’ll also focus on exercise and play, diet, socialisation and environmental factors that could be influencing your dog’s behaviour.

Together we’ll compile a training plan and learn about the power of positive reinforcement.

You will gain knowledge and training techniques that will last long after your program has ended.

Initial Dog Behaviour Consultation: What to Expect

During our first session my aim is to understand your dog’s behaviour and the areas you are wanting to address. Together we can identify any underlying causes and decide which training program is right for your family.

We will pull together a plan so you know what you can expect in upcoming sessions. We will work to set your dog up for success and use management techniques to prevent further escalation. I can help you overcome your challenges, change behaviours and, most importantly, teach you the skills to develop lifelong habits.

Typically lasting 90 minutes, there is no obligation to book a program following the initial consultation.


All programs include:

1 to 1 coaching
Online or In-Person
Fortnightly hourly sessions
An academy profile to track your dog’s progress
Phone and email support
Additional handouts and resources as needed

Kind words

“The immediate change was unbelievable! “

Carri is such a kind, caring and professional human.

I reached out to her to undertake training with my 18 month old golden retriever, initially to help with guarding behavior.

This was rectified almost immediately. It was unbelievable!

Our training evolved into other areas where I realised we needed help. Our golden suffers from anxiety and we learnt so much in a short term about reading his body language and how we can help him.

He also has suffered from severe gastrointestinal issues from a young age and very unlike a Golden, wasn’t too interested in food!

Carri helped guide us with diet and supplements to overcome this and he now has had no tummy upsets since we started working with Carri and he absolutely loves his food now!

Her feedback and assistance has been wonderful. I would highly recommend Carri from Wild Heart Dogs to anyone.

We will forever be grateful for all of her help!!!!

Let’s get a head start!

You will be sent a detailed questionnaire to allow me to get an understanding of you and your dog before our first session.

It also means we don’t need to waste time during the initial consultation, as I will already have detailed information about your dog and the challenges you are facing.

Based on the Gold Coast, I offer a range of different services at various prices. Online courses are also available, allowing me to work with clients around the world.
