Dog Behavioural Consultation (Dogs of all ages)

Darran Rowe has been working with behavioural cases for over 20 years dealing with aggression towards dogs and people as well as anxiety based issues. Recently he has completed and passed his 2nd year (Post Graduate Diploma equiv) in his Masters studies in Clinical Animal Behaviour at the Royal Dicks Veterinary College, Edingburgh University.

With dog training being an unregulated industry in New Zealand knowing that your Canine Behaviourist is qualified with an Internationally recognised qualification ensures that you are getting the right person for the job. Darran is also the current President of the Association of Professional Dog Traininers New Zealand (APDTNZ).


I are able to look at the problems from all angles and create the best behavioural program for positively transforming your dog’s behaviour. We can help you to solve the more scary dog behavioural issues such as your dog barking and growling at another dog while on and off lead or even worse your dog showing aggression towards other people, children or live-stock and cats, or showing signs of anxiety when you leave the house. I can teach you to understand what your dog is saying to you and more importantly what you are actually saying to your dog. We can then negotiate a better way to communicate and build mutual trust and respect.

It doesn’t matter if it’s an adolescent teenager or a senior citizen, we can help them to become a more relaxed and balanced companion through our mindful and positive reinforcement methods. During the initial consultation lasting 60-90 minutes, I will gain a greater understanding of the training issues you and your dog are facing. We can then recommend the best training program for you and your dog. All reports, documentation and tutorial will be available for you on your own personal online course through our Online Dog School.

Highly recommend Mindfulness4Dogs. Darran has provided knowledge and techniques to help manage my very anxious dog Tex – ranging right through from stress relief via massage and recognising body language cues, to simple training commands on and off the lead. He really shows a great calmness towards and understanding of [wo]man’s best friend.
