Underdog Training and Behaviour Consulting is an award-winning Melbourne-based dog training business, developed and run by nationally qualified dog trainer, Tamara Jackman.

Together with a team of exceptional staff, Underdog is committed to improving the lives of dogs and their owners- ensuring the dog ownership experience is a positive one.

Underdog trainers can help you with more than dog obedience- we have the experience to assist you with issues including aggression, anxiety, socialisation, enrichment, on and off leash manners and MORE! Underdog’s training services target both ends of the leash, without blame or judgement to help everyone live in the best possible way with the dog that shares their home.

Underdog has worked with Playful Pups from the beginning helping train the team and giving guidance.  Underdog conducts classes twice a week out of Playful Pups, no need to go anywhere else.

Puppy Pre School

Early socialisation allows you to get the very best out of your pups personality and combat any problems so that they are not ongoing (such as mouthing, toileting etc.)
