Servicing Samford and districts

Driven by the passion for dogs and the desire to educate

K9 Potential has been helping owners overcome problem pet behaviour, by providing owners with effective, science –based skills for the 8 years.
Owners are motivated by success, the training is fun, and through the process a wonderful bond is created.

So if you want to know more about the science and maybe art of Dogmanship look no further. 

Important announcement for August until December

Well done for coming to my page to look for solutions for your dog.

Unfortunately, I am going to be out of action for four months.

I will be sailing a catamaran up the north coast of Queensland, from August to December.

Anyone interested in the trip then check out https://bushspiritblog.wordpress.com/

For suggested options while I am away please look at the services page, for Class or Private consults.

I will be offering voice calls or written help for a small fee, using either Skype, Google hangouts, mobile calls or written Emails.

Sorry for the inconvenience.  I do value all my clients old and new.


“I took my 6 month old Zara to basic training with Hilary at K9 Potential. It was
great to see how quickly she (and I) progressed when given simple and clear steps to
follow. The process of positive reinforcement was so valuable, not only for
developing good behaviour, but also for building a great relationship with my pup.”

Core values of K9 Potential

• Do no harm
• Empowerment
• Positive interactions
• Professionalism

Humans have enjoyed the company of pets for centuries, they are an integral part of our families. Children who grow up with a pet are often healthier and have a bond with the family dog. The unconditional love of a dog is priceless. K9 Potential has great dog skills and knowledge however that’s not all having good human communication skills is also important as we are primarily teaching you the human side of the equation.
