Growing up overseas, I was surrounded by lots of stray dogs; some were very aggressive and fearful, some very friendly and affectionate. But local council workers did not discriminate. They were roaming the streets collecting hundreds of dogs every day. And putting them down immediately.

I couldn’t tolerate seeing such beautiful souls being taken away so cruelly.
The desperation in those dogs’ eyes.. their sounds of fear when they got captured have been permanently imprinted into my heart and continued to fuel my passion for offering each and every single dog a perfect life.

My willingness to help them survive made me want to understand them more. To create a life for them that just like us humans, when they’d go to bed at night, they’ll take a deep breath and say: today was just perfect!

When I was 12, I started building a stray dog housing program. Deal was simple: I’ll train the dogs to be safe and mannered in exchange for becoming someone’s permanent pet after.

More and more people joined my venture. No exact methodology. No certified training. No right or wrong. But a massive will to save a life had motivated us all to do our best. We had learnt first hand and from experience.

Since then, I’ve been continuously taking on specialised courses, researching and learning, reading hundreds of books, watching thousands of videos and following world’s top trainers and their individual methodologies. Compared, applied, modified, analysed and continued to learn.


Born 11/09/2014 in Melbourne, from a long and well-established line of German Shepherd show dogs, he’s been my shadow since he was 8 weeks old.

He humbly carries numerous prizes from agility and obedience competitions. He prefers not to brag about them, but he’s always happy to show you what he knows.

He even got published a few times in the National German Shepherd Magazine, for his great display of behaviour in public places and other achievements.

Ronny assists me with socialisation, obedience and behavioural demonstrations. Sometimes, he helps me with “disciplining” little pups. When he feels a bit more serious, he will engage in working with reactive dogs, towards their rehabilitation.

When he’s not working, Ronny loves a good game of tug, a long walk in the park, a fast fetch, or learning a few new things here and there.

He’s got a vast circle of friends that he regularly socialises with.
