“I am very happy the results with having my furry friend Flame go to Doggie School, she is a changed dog since spending time at West Coast Pet Care Centre. She is a lot less timid, listens to me and much more mature. So happy with her.”

“Thanks very much to all the West Coast staff at the Pet Centre for taking care of Ruby while she was doing her 3 week training course. Special thanks to Monique for her excellent training of young Ruby my beautiful flat coat retriever. I have seen heaps of improvement in her, she leads well. I look forward to continuing your great work with Ruby, Monique. We will catch up again when Sat classes start in Jan 2018. Well worth the money to have my dog professionally trained at West Coast Pet Centre. I loved Ruby’s Certificate., the pictures posted and videos posted where a delight to watch her progress as the weeks went by…”

“I watched the vidios on line, i also read a few comments posted, some good some not, and after some further thought i decided ok lets send Khaleesi ( my one year old German Shepard) for extra training. I had the basics for her done at home but needed a little bit more for her and others to be safe whilst out. As shes a young dog shes very excitable and wanting to be into everything, greet everyone running and jumping to them, some times unwelcomed and scary to others. So we placed her for a 4 week stay at West coast pet care and hoped they could do a little to help. Being welcomed and guided around the facilities we were asked for some areas that needed improvement and a plan was put in order to address these, they took Khaleesi away and i left a little sad and lost. Oh how she was missed for the four weeks, soon the days i were counting down to getting her home, eager to see her we arrived and were lead to see her in training and following comands even before she could greet us, and WOW, tears rolling down my face the differance in her and the happiness she displayed wanting to please her leader was visible and easy to see. Then my turn, well lets say im learning on the job lol, leaving the centre with LIFE time support and FREE follow up lestons and a goody bag for Khaleesi and me, i couldnt wait to carry on and see that i too could enjoy her with out any struggles as they did. Yes, 100% a changed dog for the better, 100% a happy dog, 1005 a willing dog, and a very happy owner and now a happy dog walker. Thank you ALL at the centre you guys are all amazing and do a fantastic job. We wont hesitate to recommend you or to use you again in all the facilities you offer. :-)”

“I recently took my 6 year old Amstaff, Blaze to have a holiday at West Coast Pet Care. He also underwent a week of training whilst there. I cannot speak highly enough of the care and attention he received. The communication from Monique and the staff was brilliant and I was able to relax knowing my boy was having a great time. He was nervous and anxious at first but settled in brilliantly once he gained confidence. I now have a completely different dog. He’s more confident and approaches people and other dogs to smell and say hello. I cannot thank you enough and cannot wait to bring him up for the Saturday classes. ☺️☺️☺️”

“Our babies just returned from a week holiday with you. Hobiecat returned upset with us that we’d “abandoned” him (as he usually does but gets over it in a day!) and Ned Kelpie’s recall training worked! He actually listened several times and came when called at the park. Only after a little dog distracted him did he ignore us but he’s young and we’ll work on that one!!! All your staff are happy and enthusiastic! We feel very comfortable leaving our pets with you and will be back. Thanks!”

“Hello Dr Anna and all West Coast Staff
I just wanted to say a massive thank you for all the support and understanding you all provided to Gravey during his stay over the last few days. I can’t express how appreciative I am to have had the support and extra care, given his special requirements.
Anna, you were absolutely fantastic with him, and it was such a relief to see you approach him with the same techniques that we have been using to manage his behavioral issues and work through some of his more stressful triggers.
To all of the kennel staff and handlers, thank you so much for understanding that he needs special care, respecting his needs and not judging him for not being a “normal dog”. At home, there is nothing he loves more than sleeping on our bed while spooning his brother, Sonic. It can be hard for him to show this gentle side outside of the house and Gravey and I both appreciate you accepting him as he is.
It was Gravey’s behaviorist, Kathy McLeod, that referred you to us. I will be sure to be singing your praises to her and will happily recommend you to anyone looking for a boarding facility.
Thank you again”

“We can’t thank WCPCC more than enough for the work they did with out Rotty girl Misha. She went in with a few behavural issues and home ” duty ” issues and came out the other end a totally organised,
well trained girl who I am now able to manage daily.
The after care has been amazing with the Saturday morning classes, refreshing
not only her memory but mine, whilst all the time implementi ng new things each time.
I would have have NO reservatio
ns in placing my darling girl at WCPCC when I’m traveling away the next time and she needs 100 o/o care and attention.
So again thanks guys see you Saturday.”

“Wow! Turbo has come back a completely different dog! He was extremely aggressive to other dogs. But since being back 4 days, he has slowly made a need friend who can sleep over! Even when he first saw this other dog, usually he would lunge at the door to attack. But there was none of it this time. He was still anxious meeting the new dog and it took a few days to slowly to get know this dog, but now he is playing and licks her. Not only has he stopped being so aggressive, but he is a lot calmer now and listens to me when I give him commands. I can’t wait to being him back in March for 2 weeks for a bit more training.”

“Thanks Hanks classes while boarding has been great. He is such a joy and so much improvement for just his stay for 7 days. Look forward in getting another package for future training. Would highly recommend the boarding kennels. Thanks again.”

“What an absolute change in Rumble’s behaviour. I brought him home yesterday and was blown away by what he has achieved in 3 weeks. Walking today without any lead pulling – such a difference. Went to the park and done 20 minutes of work with Rumble going over what was taught at West Coast Pet Care. Rumble did everything I asked of him and he didn’t leave my side at all! My biggest surprise was he never gave chase to one bird – yet there were several just sitting 5m away. I’m so pleased and grateful to all at a West Coast Pet Care. Thank you so so much 🙂 Rumble will be coming back for the intermediate training in the near future. To anyone out there that is a little comprehensive in who to chose to train your dogs – I highly recommend these guys and girls. Great people, great trainers, great facilities. Pure Awesomeness – huge thank you again. See you next Saturday for group class :)”

“Thank you West Coast Pet Care Centre for taking such good care of our baby boy. We are so glad to have him home and to continue working on the things he learnt. Looking forward to continuing lessons too“

“We are so proud of our Woody. Before training, he pulled on the lead, tried rushing over to any dog we passed on our walks, jumped at people and was generally over excited around any dog or human (even if I had food to hand to try and distract him). Now, walks are a real pleasure, guests to our house no longer get jumped at and he is all round a much calmer, contented dog. We can’t thank Iain and Kylie enough (and everyone else at West Coast Pet Care Centre) for looking after him so well”

“My boy Cruze had a amazing stay, came home much calmer and happier now that we both know what is expected and the training /advice(yes more for humans than the dogs!) Was excellent. I know cruze is looking foward to his next stay and I would recommend in a heartbeat. Thanks for everything!”
