    The Pooch Professionals Team


The team comprises Alex Surplice, Carolyn Brown, Toni Barnes and Tim Boyce. All have been helping people train their dogs in both voluntary and professional capacities since the late 1990s.



Alex began instructing at her local Dog Club in the mid 1990's and became hooked on helping people train their dogs. In 2003 she gained the Certificate IV in Behavioural Training through the Delta Society Australia and was able to implement much of what she learned into the local dog club training. Alex is also a Canine Good Citizen Instructor and Assessor. In 2010 she was in a position to devote more time to helping people with their dogs including running and assisting Puppy Pre-School Classes with Carolyn. Alex and her dog Roxy became a Delta Therapy Dogs team in 2011, where they continue to visit Aged Care facilities. 2011 saw the introduction of our Pet Dog Training Classes, together with private consultations, and in 2012 Alex received certification in Canine Remedial Massage. In 2013 she became a Greenhound Assessor and works with Greyhounds As Pets assessing their dogs and any others who come from other welfare facilities.
