“It’s so important for dog owners to set a foundation in obedience as early-on in their relationship as possible,” says Tina Button, who heads up the Dog Training Academy at Hanrob Pet Hotels Melbourne. “The trouble is, most dog owners aren’t equipped with the expert dog training knowledge they need to reinforce positive behaviour and eliminate ‘bad’ behaviour – that’s why dog training is recommended for most new dog owners. At Hanrob Melbourne, we’ve been able to take our years of industry experience and create a series of dog training courses that work for both the dog and the owner.”

Located close to Melbourne’s Tullamarine Airport, Hanrob Pet Hotels is home to Hanrob Dog Training Academy, which offers a range of dog training services, all designed to offer one thing: results that last a lifetime.
