About Me

Happy Dog Training

Hi, my name is Himali and I'm the owner of Puppy Professor. 

I believe that owning a dog is one of life's most rewarding experiences, but it is also a responsibility. A well behaved dog has more opportunities to be part of your life and accompany you on adventures, both big and small.  The bond developed through positive-reinforcement based training and play is one that I cherish.


I immerse dog owners fully in the training process; explaining the theory behind my suggestions so that you and your dog get the best results possible. I believe in training dogs to want to work with you and to engage in all environments without the use of fear, force or intimidation. 


I have a Diploma in Canine Behaviour Science and Technology from the Companion Animal Sciences Institute which is known for their science-based, academically advanced curriculum. I am also a Fear Free Certified Trainer, a member of the Pet Professional Guild Australia and a volunteer at Moorabbin Obedience Dog Club.


I believe in life long learning and am continually adding to my knowledge base via courses from leading agility trainers, books and scientific articles.  Call me to find out more about my motivation-based training methods.
