Jordan Dog Training – Understanding and helping your best friend.
Our training methods are based on the domestic dog’s instinctive pack behaviour, using only positive reinforcement and rewards. No fear-based or harsh methods are used.
Our vision for Jordan Dog Training is to enhance the relationship between dogs and their owners, ultimately reducing the number of animals that are surrendered or euthanised, by teaching guardians how to communicate effectively with their dogs.
Dog training services
Our in-home dog training sessions, group obedience classes and puppy schools teach dog owners the value of communicating gently and intelligently with their pets, (sometimes known as dog whispering) and teach them how to think in a more canine way for more successful interaction and problem solving.
In addition to running puppy schools which teach new puppy owners how to lay the foundations for a happy, healthy puppy and prevent potential problems, we are also experienced in addressing problems in dogs of all ages.
Some of the common problems which we often see and are able to resolve include:
- Separation anxiety
- Destructive behaviour
- Jumping up on people
- Pulling on the lead
We assess the dog and the environment, and develop an individual training program to solve these doggy problems and many more. Our gentle methods are effective and produce long term results as they treat the cause of the problem, not just the symptoms.

Mia Venn – As a trained ICU nurse for many years before delving into full-time animal care, Mia is passionate about working with dogs. That passion took her to many overseas countries, including India, where she spent two years working in animal shelters, assisting with rescue efforts and dealing with human abuse of dogs.
There, Mia lent her assistance with a large population of street dogs and their associated issues such as malnutrition, disabilities, fear-based aggression and diseases such as mange, rabies and distemper. She also undertook their routine care such as feeding and watering, and helped to keep the population in check and healthy by assisting with desexing and vaccinations of street dogs.
While in India, Mia was also a key member of a group that visited schools and educated children on how to not be fearful around street dogs, how to approach dogs, and how to handle and care for a pet in a respectful and safe way.
Mia is now excited to join the team at Jordan Dog Training where she can continue to use her valuable skills in dog training, canine body language and communication and her interest in animal welfare to improve the lives and outcomes for dogs and their owners alike.
