Experienced Trainers


Martina Zanin

Martina’s passion for dog training started 7 years ago when she got Ariel, her first border collie puppy. With her she started training in obedience, agility and disc dog. Martina’s knowledge about puppies grew significantly when Ariel gave birth to four gorgeous puppies of her own, one of which she kept and trained in the same disciplines as the mother. Martina has been running our puppy classes for over a year now, while working as a vet nurse at our clinic, and is hugely knowledgable about puppy behaviour and training. Martina is currently completing her Bachelor of Animal and Veterinary Bioscience and aspires at becoming both a small animals and wildlife veterinarian.

Dominika is completing Bachelor of Animal and Veterinary Bioscience, majoring in Health and Disease, in preparation for becoming a veterinarian. Since 2018 Dominika has been training dogs at an animal shelter, as well as working in our clinic as a nurse and running puppy training classes. She has also completed a Fear Free program to help reduce anxiety in pets when put in uncertain environment. Dominika’s passion is giving new puppies (and their owners) the best start for a happy (problem-free) future.
