Welcome to Canine Interaction
Canine Interaction has been involved in helping dogs to be a welcomed part of a family since 2005 when Megan decided to start her own training classes in the western suburbs.
Our classes are held on Hudson Ave Croydon Park, South Australia. We pride ourselves on our education and understanding of dog behaviour - our Senior Trainer has a Certificate IV in Behavioural Dog Training – achieved through extensive study with the Delta Society of Australia. We offer small class sizes with a maximum of 8 dogs per class, we also are very happy to help with special needs, whether animal or human.
We have 2 levels of training Basic and Advance.Our training centre uses dog friendly, humane training methods. We use positive reinforcement to show the dog which behaviours we like. This encourages the dog to offer these behaviours instead of unwanted ones.

Positive Dog Training
Our philosophy is to do no harm.
Positive Training is a way of training that only uses Positive Reinforcement methods. There is no harsh verbal or physical corrections. The dog learns to do what they are asked because it is rewarded and understands what we want.
At Canine Interaction we will show you how to use these methods, how to clearly communicate with your dog and the benefits of doing so. Many people worry about punishing the dog, but you can be a strong and respected leader without confrontation. There should be clear rules and guidelines but these can be kept in place calmly and gently.
Positive Training use scientifically proven learning theory, and helps build a great bond between owner and dog.
As part of our training philosophy we do not use choker collars, slip chains, prong collars, or any device that causes pain or stress. If you have a very strong dog we may recommend humane equipment like head collars and harnesses but find that most dogs learn best on a normal collar, when taught with patience.
