'Reinemin' was a word conjured up by my mother Joan, who is an avid word puzzle solver. Rein-Them-In (without the Th) became (Rein'em in)
This has rolled through into the Dog Training and although the Riding School has closed we are still known as Reinemin Canine Services.
I have always had dogs in my life, initially training our family pets and dabbling in a little non competitive obediance and agility, then later at Haupouri Station learning about the training for farm/working dogs. During the past 15 years I have had increasing involvement with dog training and behaviour issues. I have my own team of competitive dogs, and am a NZKC Accredited breeder of Staffordshire Bull Terriers owning the kennel prefix Takoda. I do a combination of breed showing, agility, rally-O and canine good citizen with them. I was previously a trainer in the domestic obediance classes at Napier Dog Training Club and now at Rotorua dog obedience club where I take the advanced classes for Canine Good Citizen (silver & Gold level). Privately, I run puppy pre school and pet dog training classes for owners who want to know how to deal with the annoying every day issues that some canine companions present to them. I am also available for one on one dog training in your home environment for specific behaviour issues which my not be suited to training in a group situation. See the Canine Services page for more info or email me at firstname.lastname@example.org
I regularly attend courses and seminars to keep up with recent improvements in training methods and research. Please always feel free to ask questions email@example.com
I am also a NZ registered Microchip Implanter and DNA swab collection agent for Orivet Laboratories.
