Puppy Training Program on the Gold Coast
Welcoming a new puppy into your home can be an exciting time, but it can also be a challenging time, too.
The puppy program I’ve developed is based on over 20 years of experience working with dogs and their families. I focus on developing positive behaviours, while ensuring the physical and social wellbeing of your pup which is an investment for the future and a long happy life together.
Taking a holistic and integrative view, we can work together to better understand your dog and help you build a solid and lasting connection.
As a puppy trainer based on the Gold Coast, I work across the area:
Mermaid Waters, Robina, Mermaid Beach, Broadbeach, Broadbeach Waters, Miami Burleigh Waters, Burleigh Heads, Palm Beach & Bundall
Several of my services can also be conducted virtually, meaning I can help you and your puppy wherever you are in the world.
My Approach to Puppy Training
My puppy training program is structured and will focus on your new companion’s nutrition, emotional wellbeing, physical health, exercise and sleep. Taking into account your schedule and daily routine, so we can ensure your wellbeing as an owner.
Considering your dog’s breed, we’ll discuss the role your dog was originally bred for, helping to harness their natural instincts into your training. My mission is to help you build a strong connection, allowing your puppy to thrive and develop well through the early years.
My integral and positive approach will build foundations with your puppy, allowing future learning to be embraced more successfully. I will help you nurture your puppy into a happy and fun-loving dog who is a pleasure to live with and who can handle stress well.

Your Puppy Training: What to Expect
During the puppy program we’ll cover how dogs learn, the way they communicate as well as practicalities such as toilet training, diet, nutrition, grooming and teething. We will incorporate play, toy selection and veterinary visits.
Together we can identify and teach desired behaviours that are suited to your lifestyle and meet the needs of your puppy. I’m committed to offering you bespoke and dedicated support as you navigate your relationship with your new dog.

“Someone you can rely on for professional help”
She has a clear passion, with knowledge and understanding that extends beyond dog training to diet, health and well-being.
We enlisted the help of Wild Heart Dogs shortly after adopting our then, 15 week old ‘Daisy’. As a rescue, we were unsure of her exact breed but guessing Bull Arab/Mastiff/Great Dane we knew she would eventually weigh 40-60 kilos.
We wanted to ensure Daisy would be safe, well-mannered and well-behaved primarily with our 2 young children, but also when out and about. Daisy also had/has some anxiety and apprehension around various things which Carri has been able to advise on and assist us with.
Carri is someone you can rely on for professional help and support.
While I highly recommend Wild Heart Dogs, perhaps the best recommendation would come from Daisy – seeing her break into a full-body, uncontrollable wiggle when Carri arrives!
