Welcome to K9 Lifestyle

K9 Lifestyle is a Professional Dog Training and Behaviour Consultancy based in Victoria. We provide service to the Surf Coast, Geelong and Melbourne metropolitan areas.

K9 Lifestyle doesn’t just refer to a life of laying in the sun, licking yourself, chewing on slippers and crotch sniffing, it is concerned with these things…a little…but primarily, about the creation of harmonious and fulfilling lifestyles for you and your dogs. If you like the sound of this and think your dog will too, check out our site and see how we can help you.

Thank you Damian for your amazing ability to transfer our very playful lab into a very obedient dog. Your very friendly service and professional training manner was outstanding. More importantly you were able to instruct us on how to maintain Bulla’s obedience training to ensure he received a consistent ‘message’. Being able to control Bulla’s enthusiasm has certainly made walking along the beach a more enjoyable experience and his temperament is exemplary.
