About us

Hi there,

My name's Ruby and I'm small black and furry. My mum Jaclyn is the heart and soul of The Dog Nose; a small business with a BIG passion for helping problem pets. My mum and I traveled all the way the England to study at the prestigious International Animal Behaviour Training College. She got to train all sorts of animals including dogs, cats, horses, birds and chickens, and passed all of her exams with distinction. Of course she couldn't have done it without me!

After a year of studying and training, we returned to Australia and founded The Dog Nose, Training and Behaviour.

From puppy classes and kitten training, to teaching basic manners, to resolving reactivity, aggression and anxiety, The Dog Nose caters to all your animal training needs. If your pet has a problem, we've got a solution for you! Check out our services page to see how we can help you resolve your pet's training or behaviour issues.

In our spare time, mum and I enjoy long sniffy walks, training and learning new tricks, training animals for commercials, advertising and short films, and coming up with new fun classes for owners and their dogs.

“I would highly recommend Jac to anyone! Jac has helped us understand our dog's behavioural issues and has provided fantastic and easy to use techniques to help them. We have already seen a vast improvement!"

"Amazing experience with Jac from The Dog Nose. She is very clear and spot on with her training. She made me and my furbaby Kodie feel very at ease with major improvements already being noticed within the initial consultation. I can't thank her enough. We had issues with our dog being aggressive with strangers and other dogs. Your doing amazing things!"
