Alex Edwards has been professionally training dogs for over 15 years and worked with all sorts of breeds, ages and issues.

Based in Wandong, Victoria, Alex offers zoom and in person consultations and will also cover most northern suburbs of Melbourne for in-house training. In addition to this Alex facilitates and/or participates in with seminars across Australia and the world.

One of the things that really sets Alex apart from the crowd and has assisted him in developing other Australian trainers has been his dedication to his own learning. Though Alex was accredited as a Dog Trainer and Behaviorist in Australia through the National Dog Trainers Federation (NDTF), Alex wasn't ready to stop there and has clocked up multiple international trips, completing certifications and learning from some of the best in the world including dog training royalty such as Michael Ellis, Josh Moran, Martin Deeley and Francis Metcalf. Alex also seizes any opportunity he can to attend International Association of Canine Professionals (IACP) conferences to share ideas with new and old friends.

Alex's aim is help you and your dog work together using various techniques so you can achieve your desired results while creating a closer bond and better relationship with your dog.

Courtney Smith

We first met Courtney in 2017 working with her Husky, Ghost and more recently with River, her little Aussie.

During this time, Courtney has immersed herself in the dog world, working in kennels and doggy day care, as well as completing her National Dog Trainers Federation certification in Behavior and Dog Training!

It's been wonderful to see what Courtney has achieved already through her hunger to learn and dedication to helping dogs, so we're ecstatic to see what she can achieve as the newest addition to the Refine Your Canine team!
