The best training my dog has received. He was a terrible walker and could not be managed easily at all. After a few sessions with Tam my dog is now bareable to take out and is listening to all the right cues! He still has a way to go as do we as the owners learning how to handle him also!

"Tamara is seriously my Wally boys best friend! Tamara's help from when he was a puppy to well over a year now has been an incredible investment, and one that we would do over and over again. Having a puppy is no easy feat, but having Tamara there to love and support your little one in their early days makes a world of difference. We're about to embark on getting a new puppy, and can't imagine not having Tamara to help guide us as well as the puppy to be on his best behaviour and I can't wait to do it all over again.

One thing I love about Tamara and I tell everyone is that she's a dog/animal LOVER AND an incredible trainer. I think for me that was important that my dog felt loved, but also at the same time really respected the trainer (helicopter mum over here!) and I really felt that training Wally got the best of both worlds.

My also favourite thing about Tamara is the wealth of knowledge around our besties that she passes on - even without her knowing! The little gem's she drops while training really helps you as an owner to understand the 'why' when it comes to training. That's something I love!

Love Leah and Mitch xx "

Tamara is so patient and knowledgeable when it comes to dogs. She has been training my dog Ninja for a little while now and the difference in her behaviour is incredible. My girl loves her training sessions with Tamera so much that she doesn't even want to have breaks.

Tamara teaches the owners as much as the dog! How to better understand and communicate with each other.
Tamara keeps things simple.

After just 5 sessions the whole household has benefited from much improved behaviour, everyone on the same page. Still a way to go but so many things to work with, now there is a plan and structure. Will definitely be booking more sessions in the future.

Had such a fantastic and informative Skype session with Tamara! Adopting a rescue dog is sure to come with its challenges, but with the right guidance we have already seen incredible improvements in our furry friend in a matter of weeks. Thank you so much, looking forward to the next session!

Tamara is truly remarkable. Our dogs Charlie and Pippa adore her and have come a long way in their training We did not realise that having siblings was such a challenge it with Tamara’s encouragement we are learning to think with our dog hat! Still a long way to go because even though we try we haven’t got Tamara’s superb control Thank you Tamara for your patience and kindness to us all

Tamara was very sincere and knowledgeable, all of the time spent with my dog was productive and I've seen lasting results as well as giving me a lot of tools to continue improving behavior. She was able to answer all of the questions i had and it was clear that she cared about my dog, his place in the world and how he interacted with it.

Cody. H

Tabi. B

What a fantastic experience, very friendly and professional. Great insight into our dogs world and lots of tips to help get our dog on the same page. I would highly recommend Tamara to anyone who needs guidance on understanding their dog better.

Kristin. B

Have already recommended Tam to others and will continue to do so! She is absolutely amazing with our dogs, they are coming along in leaps and bounds with their confidence, behavior and walking. Tam is excited to help the dogs and share her knowledge.

We are so appreciative of your work! Glad we found you Tam!!!

Tam worked with my dog Cobber while I was on an overseas holiday for a few weeks. She did training walks with him on most days. Cobber is a rescue dog who's behaviour has been very challenging to manage at times due to his anxious nature. He has been very difficult to walk on lead, especially because of his anxiety towards other dogs. The progress Cobber made in this short time is amazing. Tam sent me daily updates and photos of his development. She has also given me much help with my continued training with him and her passion for her work is incredible. Tam's follow up and support for Cobber and I has been outstanding. I can't thank Tam enough!!!!

Been to several dog training groups and personal teachers for our dogs, none were better than Best Friend Dog Care. Thought little Max would never learns the basics or be controlled, and in a matter of one session Best Friend Dog Care had him behaving and manageable. At the end of a five week training schedule, Max was a new dog entirely and I couldn't be happier or prouder! Thank You so much for teaching both Max and me! 😁
