About Neri, the Dog Whisperer ...


Hi, I'm Neri.

I have had an affinity with animals all my life. From an early age, dogs and cats were constantly following me home. Even as a child I was training animals - dogs, cats, ducks - and even wild kookaburras.

My connection with animals led me to university to study marine biology and animal behaviour, then on to further studies with the National Dog Trainers Federation where I completed the Certificate III in Dog Training and a Canine Behaviour Modification Specialist course.


Recently I have spent time with Shaun and Kim Ellis, world famous wolf behaviourists in the UK. Learning from these two has been both astounding and eye opening. Working with wolves to understand more about dogs is simply logical because of their close evolutionary links.

Their website is well worth a look.

My associates and I have been operating Dog Whispering since 2003, specialising in canine behaviour solutions, in-home training, obedience classes and puppy training.

I also have an keen interest in community engagement and perform volunteer work in my spare time at organisations such as Guide Dogs W.A, the R.S.P.C.A and the Perth Dog Training and Obedience Club.

"Dogs are not our whole life but they make our lives whole." ~Roger Caras

"I can't think of anything that brings me closer to tears than when my old dog -- completely exhausted after a hard day in the field -- limps away from her nice spot in front of the fire and comes over to where I'm sitting and puts her head in my lap, a paw over my knee, and closes her eyes and goes back to sleep. I don't know what I've done to deserve that kind of friend." ~Gene Hill
