Our goal is to take the stress out of being a dog owner. Dog Almighty offers a full range of dog training & behaviour options from classes to private training to boot camp for your dog. We believe in having fun with dogs and getting the best out of your furry best friend by using positive reward-based training techniques.
We will not use any force or fear when working with your dog. We can help you achieve long lasting and reliable results while also building a relationship of trust and confidence between you and your dog.
Dog Almighty supports local animal charities that work to improve the welfare and future of homeless dogs. We work closely with local dog charity Second Chance Tasman, Taman Pound Dogs and also with John Bergman of Dog Control Services in Richmond (TDC Dog Shelter).
Dog Almighty is spearheading an exciting new project for dogs called 'Help for Hounds." It is all about helping lower income families get access to dog training by giving subsidies for group classes and private training depending on what the family and their dogs needs.
What does it cover?
Under the Help for Hounds scheme owners are given discounts for the following:
- Private training and behaviour sessions

Once you have made your application Dog Almighty will decide which service would be the best fit for you and your dog to help you achieve your training goals.
The Help for Hounds scheme is to support lower income families that are struggling to meet the cost of training their dog. If you are not in this category, please do not apply! Eligibility will be decided on a case by case basis so please give details about your situation in your application.
