Real Life Dog Training in
Real Life Situations

Heel Sit and Stay teaches you and your dog how to manage training and behaviors in everyday situations.

Lessons are conducted in outdoor areas, cafes, public places with horses nearby, with distractions, and real-life locations.


Sometimes these are planned and sometimes life just happens!


Let us teach you how to live your best life possible with your dog - wherever and however, that may be.

Belinda Marinus

Owner and Head Trainer

Hi or should I say 'Woof' ! I am Belinda and I am passionate about training YOU and your dog or puppy.  I have trained over 3000 dogs since beginning my business in 2013 and even more humans!  The key to having a well-behaved and trained dog is consistency -  and patience of course!

My goal is to help you and your dog to have the best life possible together.  I don't have a cookie-cutter approach to my training, classes, or education sessions as all dogs and people have different home environments, family dynamics, and expectations of their dogs. I want to get to know you and your dog so I can help them be the best they can be.

I was a late starter into the Dog Training arena but my various careers prior to this have given me a perspective and understanding of people and how best to teach them - or you!

I undertook my dog training studies with Craig A. Murray 'The Dog School' based in the Gold Coast, QLD.  Craig is an International Award-Winning Certified Specialist Dog Trainer.
