Canine Management Workshops

Dog Trainers Australia provides workshops to small & large organisations requiring SME’s (Subject Matter Experts) on canine behaviour. These workshops are designed as part of OH&S training for employees who come into contact with dogs as part of their duties in partuclar AMO’s (Animal Management Officers).

In March – April 2006, Training Director Basil Theofanides, delivered our DogSureDealing with Aggressive Dogs training program across Melbourne and regional Victoria as part of the Bureau of Animal Welfare’s AMO Regional Training Seminars. These successful seminars provided a valuable insight for AMO’s on identifying behaviours and dealing with aggressive dogs including their capture & transport.

The DogSure workshop has been provided consistantly to numerous organisations as part of their Occupational Health and Safety obligations as small-group training programs. Some of these organisations include:

  • South West Water Authority for their meter readers
  • AGL (Australian Gaslight Company) meter readers
