Thank you to Matt for your simple yet effective way to train dogs.  Initially I thought our Dexter was untrainable, however with Matt's patience and simple techniques we finally have the ball rolling and seen some huge improvements in Dexter.  Thank you so much for an awesome course.

We were apprehensive when we attended our first lesson with our new puppy, but Matt's methods were effective, and also fun for both us and Barney. Going to 'Canine College' every Sunday became the highlight of our week!

My puppy Pepper didn't know much before we arrived at Canine College but learnt sit, down, stay, wait, leave etc VERY easily with Matts easy to follow training instructions. The instructional videos on the members area of the website were great in case you wanted to double check you were training correctly. I would definately recommend his courses to anyone who needs a little structure in their dogs life! Thanks heaps :)

Really enjoyed the begginer classes that Matt took.  It was a 5 week class and it was great to learn the basics about how to train your dog.  He's a very personable trainer and very approachable so it was easy to ask questions throughout the different sessions.  would definately reccommend this to anyone having trouble controlling their dog.  I especially found Matt's website useful as an overview after the classes.  The videos are short, to the point and easy to understand.

Sasuke (my dog) and I very much enjoyed Matt's training. Let's face it owning a dog is not an easy thing, Matt really did help with this process. It's so nice to have a dog that listens! I would recommend Matt's classes with any dog owners out there!

My dog is not the smartest of dogs and is as stubborn as me… but he loves going to Canine College classes. The atmosphere is relaxed and both dogs and owners have fun. Only encouragement and advice are given if you and your dog are struggling. Matt is great with the dogs and has a natural affinity with them. We have certainly learnt a lot and I know he is always there to help us out if there are any other problems that come up down the line.
