I would highly recommend Dorothy as a dog trainer. Her training methods work! There is no one size fits all approach and she is able to suggest different methods or ideas depending on the dog and the issue. I also like the fact that she uses positive training methods which the dogs respond to better than other training I have been advised on in the past. We have been going to Dorothy’s training classes for a while now, not because the training hasn’t worked but because my pup Nucky loves going so much!”

   – update October 2020:  Megan has now brought her new pup Kira to preschool and kindy!  Nucky loves having a little sister to play and hang out with.


Both my pups Ivy and Tyrone have been training with Dorothy for the past months. Saturday is a hit in our house as both dogs know it’s time to go to Preschool/Kindy! Both dogs as well as myself have learnt so much. Thanks Dorothy! We can’t wait to come back for more.

Christiane, Ivy and Tyrone’s mum


“Dorothy is AMAZING. Our terrified rescue dog wouldn’t go near other dogs at all, and finally, for the first time in his little life, he attended doggy school and played with the other dogs. You have no idea how much this has meant to us. If you need a trainer, please go see Dorothy.”

  • “Absolutely love Dorothy’s puppy training sessions. My dog lola loves coming to see Dorothy, interacting with other dogs, learning new skills and loves the treats! So happy with her service. 5 stars to cheeky pup dog training! !” – Maddison, Lola’s mum
  • “This is my second time attending Cheeky Pup Training with my second puppy! Absolutely love it. My first dog that attended has retained all the knowledge she gained and we expect our second pup will do the same. Dorothy is wonderful and makes everything easy and fun! If we ever get a THIRD pup, I know where I will be taking them for training .” – Ebony, mum of Oslo and Elfa
  • “My Dutchess (Basset Hound) graduated a couple of months ago . Having had great fun and socialisation at Puppy pre school. She learnt all basics and went on to be in the Daily Telegraph posing for hallmark cards with cheeky pup dog training school. Today she is still modelling and enjoying fancy dress festivals etc. I would recommend this dog training school as a great start for all breeds.” – Janine, Dutchess’ mum
  • “Dorothy is excellent! No need to look at any other trainers/behaviouralists – she has a great teaching style, for both pups and humans.” – Sam, dad to Cashew and Noodles
