About Mark

My Mission

To provide affordable, quality home dog training.

Home dog training prices 500 dollars plus for a behavioural consultation are not uncommon.  This places much needed help out of reach for a lot of people.  The Sydney Dog Trainer pricing is well within reach of your average family budget.

The Man behind the sydney dog trainer

The man behind the Sydney Dog Trainer is Mark.

 Prior to a dog training career, Mark was a qualified  submariner serving onboard various Oberon Class Submarines during the “cat and mouse”  espionage games of the Cold War.

Fast forward to 2008 Mark founded Dogs Anonymous “it’s rehab for dogs”. Dogs Anonymous was set up as dog behavioural business, but over the years Mark found he was getting more and more enquiries and business from people wanting private puppy training. So a decision was made in 2018 to go with a name change that would be more encompassing and that is when The Sydney Dog Trainer was born.

In the wild, wild, west of dog training where there is absolutely no requirement for a dog trainer to have completed any course let alone a formal one, Mark wishes to let his clients know that they can breathe easy when they make a booking with The Sydney Dog Trainer.  They can be sure that they ARE GETTING a dog trainer who is EXPERIENCED and QUALIFIED!  Mark has 12 years experience and a Certificate III in Dog Behaviour and Training from the National Dog Trainers Federation which is Australia’s ONLY government-approved provider for professional canine trainers.
