Qualified & registered MindDog trainers are able to assess dogs for this purpose.

Learning Objectives

  • To give people an overview of what the organisation MindDog is
  • To assist people in how to source a dog if they don't have one
  • To show how MindDog can assist clients who already have a dog and need help or information

About The Presenter

Dee has had a passion for animals and training from a very young age. Moving to Canberra she started a long public service career and as a hobby joined the local pony club and the companion dog club as an instructor and competitor. Training and competing in both, life seemed complete. She then won a position with AQIS as a detection dog handler and moved to Victoria. It was a fulfilling career working with scent detection and she joined the first positive dog training club in Keilor to trial her dogs and to teach. Her dog training business, Positive Response, was born in Melbourne as a part time venture to serve the further needs of the community. Moving to Brisbane the business grew rapidly from a small part time concern to what it is today. As someone who grew up in business and customer service, Dee recognised the need for quality professional trainers within the Brisbane area and has now developed a fantastic team of trainers.
