Live a happier life with your dog 

Our training philosophy is based on trust and communication between you and your dog. Simple solutions that are scientifically proven to improve both your dog's behaviour and their long-term welfare. Our aim is to help you be your dog's advocate and build a better relationship with them through force-free training.



Layla has a passion for animal welfare and helping our local community. She started her professional dog training career in 2019 at Petbarn Lismore, where she taught puppy school, beginner, and intermediate classes. In 2021, she opened Northern Rivers Dog Walking to provide much-needed pet care services to our region, which she continues to operate. Layla is currently in her second year of study with the Delta Institute, very close to completing her Certificate IV in Animal Behaviour and Training. Additionally, Layla has a Bachelor of Wildlife Science and a Certificate IV in Captive Animals - both qualifications that have furthered her overall knowledge of animal behaviour and care. 




One-on-One Training

Our one-on-one sessions can cover anything you need help with, such as listening skills, reactivity and anxiety, household manners, and loose lead walking.


Walk & Train

Our walk and train services are perfect for giving your dog a refresher on their manners, and giving you a break.

These walks are undertaken by Layla and focus more on training than walking.

I learnt a lot from my session with Layla. My dogs have been doing so much better on their walks and have been more relaxed when meeting new people.
