​Cool Doggie Training

Meet Alana

I have always had a love for animals and nature. My first dog was a jet black labrador retriev​er "Nicki". We introduced to our own children two English cocker spaniels "Pepsi" and "Gidget" and from then on dog training became a priority in teaching my children dog guardianship responsibilities. 

My love for cocker spaniels grew. I became a registered breeder and began to show in conformation classes and helped raise some puppy litters. I retired from the show ring to enter the world of dog sports!

Obedience, gundog and retrieving, jumping/agility, rally-o and tracking were fields I chose to compete in with my dogs.

I obtained my Certificate IV in Companion Animal Services and also as a CGC Assessor with the Delta Society in March 2010. As a Delta instructor I now teach puppy preschool, adolescent and adult classes, workshops specialising in specific training, private training and behaviour consultations.

I actively continue my education to provide a service based upon sound scientific principles and current best practice.
