I am very happy with the training my dog Buddy has got from Lorraine. Buddy has come a long way, he is obedient, will come back on command when let free. Lorraine is very approchable and will listen to your concerns. We enjoy training with Lorraine and Buddy always comes out happy.Thank you Lorraine

I write this review in response to a recent post by Shae Griffiths who publicly comments on the "brutal training methods" conducted by Lorraine at Sankiri Dog Training. I was astounded to read of these false and misleading accusations aimed at a reputable, highly respected and experienced dog trainer of over 20 years who has helped, adapted and in some cases, rescued dogs who... may have otherwise been discarded to a place of no return. My wife and I have been to numerous other dog trainers over the past 2 years who in my opinion use methods which are commonly frowned upon - prong/pinch collars, e-collars (shock collars), and so on. By comparison, we do not have any issues with Lorraine's methods, and furthermore, our canine companions have never been happier and more settled in their behavior particularly around other dogs. Both of our dogs were previously administered Fluoxetine (Lovan) for their anxiety issues around other dogs, and since they begun their training with Lorraine three months ago, have now stopped taking medication completely. Finally, when I read Shae's comment "every time I've walked past the dogs have looked despondent and sad" it begs the question of whether Shae should now be considered an animal behavior expert or dog whisperer. Don't think I have come across a sad looking dog in their owners company.....just saying.read more

Lorraine has been a huge help with our 3 year old Aussie- couldn't recommend her enough! We thought our dog was pretty well trained, but after she turned 2 she started developing a few issues- racing out open doors, chasing after swallows at the park (and couldn't be recalled or caught) and aggressive with small dogs, to the point we were too afraid to let her off lead. Even... after the first 2 sessions she was so much better- we could leave the front door open and she wouldn't go out unless told to. And after maybe 6 group sessions, she was able to relax around little dogs, even playing with a Jack Russell! It has made walks and outings so much more enjoyable, for us and the dog. We only wish we had started with Lorraine sooner! Definitely recommend.read more

What Can I say - Lorraine is absolutely amazing and to the point. She went above and beyond to train our chow chow puppy. Due to Covid-19 we could not enroll our newly puppy to Puppy school. At 11 weeks, my puppy started nipping and just usual annoying puppy behavior. So, we wanted to control the behavior from an earlier age. There it was, miracle happened, we found Sankiri.... Lorraine provided the training at our house with lots of positive reinforcement and effort . Our puppy has now learned to stop the nipping/biting and the unwanted puppy behavior. He is a lot more calmer and he actually listens to us.Once again - thank you so much Lorraine. I cannot recommend more on how amazing Lorraine is.read more

Lorraine is amazing! She helped us to understand what to expect before we got our puppy and even helped us select a breed that was perfect for our situation. She asked us what we would like to achieve with our dog long term and then adjusted our training towards it. We are now following her training routine, knowing we are on the right track. Lorraine is still in touch, always... happy to answer any questions. Lorraine, your support is much appreciated!read more

Myself and my husband employed the services of Sankiri professional dog training following an incident whereby our Staffy had been in a fight with another dog. Lorraine’s professional instruction and tuition was informative and educational. During the private one-to-one sessions we were able to achieve more than I had ever thought previously possible. As owners we learnt good... leadership skills, obedience, correct lead handling, socialisation and problem solving skills, we worked with Lorraine’s own training dogs which significantly increased our confidence. Lorraine went above and beyond to support us and the results have remained post 12 months since we have finished the training. As a result both we as owners and our beloved Staffy are much happier, calmer and safer. I have no hesitation in recommending Lorraine and her professional services; it is rare to find such a friendly, committed professional trainer who is so dedicated to educating owners and achieving long lasting results.read more

Ms. Lorraine McLennan, Sankiri, is an exceptional dog trainer/behaviourist, with an in-depth knowledge in her field.We have attended her weekly small group classes over the years, and found that her unique coaching of our dogs encompasses practical activities of daily living.As a result, we now have the confidence to take our dogs everywhere with us.

We got Keiko as a 1 year old German shepherd x Akita rescue. It was quite clear she had previously had no training or socialisation, and was a very friendly but boisterous dog. We struggled to walk her, take her anywhere, with her lunging at cars, bikes, runners and especially other dogs. We tried 3 different trainers, puppy school and a community dog school with limited... success. We came across Lorraine on a google search; Lorraine really was our last hope!
I rang and had a long chat with Lorraine over our concerns of just yet ‘another trainer,’ however speaking with Lorraine, she put our minds to rest, she sounded genuine. Knowing Lorraine spent many years training the rescues that could not be rehomed and then successfully rehoming then must mean she knew something!
At a first home visit, after being shown the basics, within half an hour Keiko was holding a drop next to one of Lorraine’s dogs in our hallway! It was amazing to see!
We have now completed an 8 week programme and are attending a dog socialisation class. Keiko now walks beautifully on a lead, we go to cafes and she lays beside us no matter who passes, and seeing her run around with other dogs in class, well we never thought we could get there! We will continue to work with Lorraine with recall and anything else that crops up over the way, I know Lorraine will support us.
We couldn’t recommend her enough! She is the Australian dog whisperer! Thanks Lorraine 🙏🏼🐕💕

As novice husky owners Lorraine trained our first dog. When we got our two new puppies we went straight to Lorraine’s classes. She helped us to have well behaved and well socialised dogs that I could walk together on my own. I couldn’t recommend her services more.

We have really loved taking our Border Collie Charlie to training at Sankiri! Charlie has been training at Sankiri for at least 6 months where he has leant so much and we have become more confident with him as pet parents! We previously had a Border Collie who was quite lazy and slow where Charlie is active and fast, so we knew we needed some great training techniques to help... him be a more disciplined and happy dog and we needed to be happy too! Sankiri has made each training session informative and achievable and the staff are very knowledge and friendly. Thanks Lorraine, Amy and the rest of the team at Sankiri for helping us achieve our goals. Also seeing the puppies come in after our class is one of my favourite parts !read more

Within minutes of meeting Lorraine, I thought she'd put a spell on my dog, George-Michael. From the moment she arrived at my home he listened and responded to her commands.I went from thinking I had the cutest but naughtiest dog on Planet Earth, to owning a Shar Pei that could learn some manners and had hope of obeying some rules!In the matter of a few lessons I can now walk... George M. happily on a lead (without him pulling me along) and he is steadily learning respect for me and tolerance toward other dogs.The skills I have learned through engaging Sankiri Dog Training have transformed my home from a battle-zone of the wills, to regular house with a lovely dog who is learning fast! Time and money so well spent and I can't recommend Lorraine at Sankiri highly enough.read more

Sorry if this review seems long. I believe that everyone has the right to voice an option/review based on their own experiences, so here I am voicing my own.We have been with Lorraine at sankiri for almost two years with our first puppy Jesse. During this time Lorraine has proven to be an inspiration to dog trainers.Not only has she helped with every little stupid question... that we have thrown her way, but she has gone above and beyond what we have paid for and continues to do so.We now have a second pup who will need a lot more training than our first and even though we have not yet paid a cent towards any special care, Lorraine still in the kindest of her heart helps in anyway possible.We have found that any expenses paid have been returned in full (and above and beyond our expectations).Lorraine has the knowledge, experience and expertise that makes each cent count.We cannot recommend her and Sankiri enough, especially if you have a dog that needs that little bit of extra care and attention.read more

From the first assessment i knew Lorraine would be our saviour.
We had been from school to school with our naughty Beagle and nothing seemed to help with the behavioural issues.

Lorraine showed up for our assessment early, very professional and i immediately felt at ease. She listened to all our issues, explained how we would achieve our goals for our dog and it... was nice to know i wasn't alone. Lorraine showed us a few technques to stop my naughty dog from jumping and i could see results straight away

Our private sessions with Lorraine really helped with our in home behavioural issues and taught us how to get the initial control over our dog and now we are in group training and look forward to it every weekend. Every cent we have spent at Sankiri has been well worth it. Thanks Lorraine you have changed our lives.

When we decided on a puppy training school, we looked in to a few and Sankiri stood out by a mile. What I was reading was exactly what we wanted for our furry daughter. We quickly discovered that Lorraine has the utmost care and respect for not only the dogs in her classes but their owners as well. Lorraine always went the extra mile each and every class and even made follow... up calls offering adivce whenever needed. Our Coco did amazingly well and we couldn’t have gotten all the obedience we have if it weren’t for her. We would thoroughly recommend Sankiri to anyone.read more

My rottweiler x shepard didn't like people or other dogs she was a problem to walk because she would be barking, trying to scramble towards people and other dogs while i would be trying to hold onto her.When she needed to visit the vet, it was a very difficult task and we were told that she was dangerous and possibly beyond help.We contacted Lorrain at Sankiri because we saw... that in her own environment and even with our cat she was calm so we believed our dog could learn we just needed help.The first couple of one on one lessons were in our own backyard and our dog wasn't very polite to Lorrine barking and baring teeth etc Lorraine gave us the technics and tools to correct the behavior of our dog and after only a few lessons she was responding amazingly and quickly and enjoying her training time.She began to accept Lorrain after only 3 lessons and we noticed she was more friendly towards other people that would come to our home, we no longer had to put the dog in the backyard while we entertained.Lorraine introduced our dog to her own and we saw that our dog was ok, she actually enjoyed being with another dog, there was no barking or anything, we were astounded to see the progress.Our dog is now in group sessions and to this day has never even barked at another dog whilst in group, she is amazingly calm and responsive.On Sunday morning, she knows she's going to visit her friends and crys and runs to the cupboard where her lead is because she just wants to get to class.She can now be let off lead and runs and plays and enjoys her pats from other people and other dogs don't bother her at all.We started with Sankiri thinking our dog was beyond help, but now our dog is a beautiful, friendly, happy addition to our family.Without the team at Sankiri I'd hate to think what might have become of our dog, I can't thank them enough.Our dog went from unfriendly, uncooperative, lonely and fearful to being our best friend, very well behaved, calm and happy pleasurable member of the family.read more

Sankiri Dog Training achieves results and genuinely care about you and your dog. Lorraine goes above and beyond to ensure your dog listens and responds to you. When I first spoke to Lorraine she listened and could relate to my issues with my dog, despite his age and bad behaviour. The progress that we have made in the past year has been tremendous. My dog Bruno no longer pulls... on the lead as much or barks uncontrollably when I take him for walks. Something I thought would never change at one point. Bruno loves going to training and we are both happier as a result.read more

Our boy Elroy was always a big boxer and at about 14 months began to act aggressively towards other dogs he would lunge unexpectedly during walks and at our weekly obedience class. The instructors told us he was a danger to other dogs and unless we muzzled him he couldn't attend classes. If he saw a dog at the park he would charge them and wouldn't come back when called. We... struggled with him for another 8 months and if anything it got worse. He was great as far as obedience went, but the lunging and antisocial behaviour just wasn't being addressed. He was now 2 years old and approaching 40kg. Lorraine started us on the Sunday classes and we were introduced to her dog pack it was here he began learning how to just hang out with other dogs and socialise. Just simple things like bum sniffing were foreign to Elroy. I remember about 4 months in venting my frustration to Lorraine that in class he was improving. Outside in "the real world" he just wasn't getting it, she took his lead from me and put Elroy through his paces.... flawlessly. He was doing things I'd never seen him do before in training. It wasn't him it was me. Seems simple now and it took many months more( did I tell you Lorraine was very patient with me?) I have become a much better dog handler and Elroy began to listen, he began coming back. I could take him to the park and he wouldn't chase down other dogs. We even went back to Obedience and he progressed up to off lead work. Afternoon walks became a pleasure rather than a struggle. It became the life you want to have with your dog. Lorraine even had Elroy and me work as the stable dog in class. I would never have thought it possible. So if you want to have a enjoyable life with your dog. Learn how to be an effective dog handler and get a real life with your dog. Go see Lorraine!Finally here's Elroy hanging out in the pack. I can't tell you how proud I am of him here, just hanging out like any other dog.read more

We started at Sankiri when my puppy was 3 months old when she was very, VERY naughty. She would bite, run off, not listen, dig, eat shoes, basically destroy anything in site and walk terribly on a lead.
Since training for only 6 months, my puppy, now almost 10 months, has come such a long way. She doesn’t bite (much), she walks beautifully on a lead, and she listens (most... of the time)!! She’s also stopped digging in my backyard, and I’ve learnt to put my shoes away �. She still has a long way to go, as she still gets way too excited when she sees another doggy to play with and tries to run to greet them. But luckily we have another 1.5years of training where I know she’ll be perfect walking off lead and will have the best manners. I have complete confidence in Lorraine’s method of training as it has been working so far on my super stubborn husky x staffy when I thought nothing would. We look forward to the results!! Highly recommend.read more

I highly recommend Sankiri Dog Training to anyone having problems with their dog. Our boy needs socialising with both people and other dogs; and we need training on how to keep him under control. After only 2 private sessions with Lorraine, we went to our first group class this morning. We were able to have our dog close to other dogs (like a sardine can), with no problems.... We also had the dogs in a drop position, let go of the lead and walk away (mind you, Lorraine had to yell at me to let go of the lead and move away…. LOL). I can’t believe he stayed in the position I left him in, with all the other dogs so close to him. This would not have been possible 3 weeks ago. Lorraine’s methods work, we can’t speak highly enough about our experience with Sankiri.read more

I signed up to Sankiri with the aim to have our crazy kelpie pup be completely reliable on or off leash - we’re well on our way. While we didn’t have any major issues with Harvey’s behaviour, his total lack of acknowledgement of our existence while distracted (especially around other dogs) needed to be addressed. He’s still a nut but it’s been amazing to see what our over... excitable Harvey has been able to achieve in such a short amount of time. We would never have thought he could hold a drop while other dogs ran about - incredible! Lorraine & Norm are fantastic - very patient & passionate about what they do. I highly recommend Sankiri for anyone wanting a well adjusted & obedient dog.read more

I took on Max then a 5-6 month old cattle dog X from my son. He is a very strong willed pup and was very destructive to boot. I knew if I was to get any control over him, we both needed help. After some research I decided on Sankiri. It was/is the best decision. We are both still learning and I'm amazed at the things Max does at group training that I would not have thought... possible yet. Lorraine is great at what she does and gives us all the confidence by her guidance in working with our dogs. Thanks Lorraine. I highly recommend Sankiriread more

Highly recommend Lorraine from Sankiri dog Training. She has amazing methods that really work. I love that she will help any dog with issues and doesnt have the one size fits all approach. My Dog Jessie is a lot calmer since dogs training and our bond has grown a hundred times.

Lorraine and Norm from Sankiri have been incredibly helpful and patient with working to correct some deep-rooted behavioural issues that we inherited in our little Jack Russel X, Lucy, who we adopted from a somewhat neglected life. She began with severe fear aggression and anxiety issues with both people and other animals and although she still has along way to go, her... temperament has completely changed and she's now happily attending group training after a few private lessons. We've enrolled Lucy for 2 years of unlimited training, and despite travelling 40mins every sunday it's well worth it to see the improvements week to week.read more

Our big boy Great Dane Chuddleigh (9months) use to take off and bolt at times which is very bad and scary. With guidance from Lorraine he now drops off lead and stays put. I would highly recommend her training methods.

I honestly didn't think it was possible to cure Koda's terrible jumping habits and fear of dogs, but Lorraine has helped us almost completely conquer that in such a small amount of time. I couldn't be more grateful and I highly recommend, even in you think you have the naughtiest dog in the world like I did!

I have a beautiful female dog who is incredibly affectionate and loving with people (and thinks she's a human of course). She has however from a very early age been a really hyperactive dog out in public. It made me very nervous. She would love to be friends with other dogs but she gets so over excited and jumpy that she unmeaningly intimidates other dogs. She was also hurt be... a large dog as a puppy and doesn't like to be pounced on and can get aggressive. As her Mum I'm fully aware of her traits and in turn act as a responsible dog owner. With this behaviour I'm unable to take her to dog parks anymore or let her off the lead as she's too unpredictable.I found Sankiri Dog Training and signed up for 2 years of obedience training. Lorraine was absolutely brilliant. I was really impressed that it is not treat based reward training and simply based on love and respect between owner and dog. She changed our world and taught us valuable skills and my girl has calmed down so much. We use these skills every time we step out the front door.Lorraine is also such a kind hearted and genuine person and I love that she will do anything she can to save and help any dog when others would have given up on them. I would very happily and excitedly recommend Sankiri to anyone. Thanks a million Lorraine.read more

And along came Darby, 35kg mastiff x puppy.Full of energy, uncontrollable when he saw another dog.Tried Ausdog who in 1 lesson with choker solved our problems, NOTFound Lorraine who came down for two private lessons , then warily ventured up to Seaford, our fears were soon allayed as Lorraine trained Darby , Jayne and l.Darby has transformed from a boisterous, let me at... them , scaring over protective owners, into a big pussycat, some are still wary because of his size, but we are confident to walk him anywhere, take him into the pet shops etc (Million Paws Walk).Big , small, timid, wild, young or old, Lorraine soon has them obeying her commands on the first lesson.Jayne and I enjoy the relaxed atmosphere at trainingHighly recommend .read more

Highly recommend Sankiri. We go to group, this environment has really helped shape our dog into an clever happy obedient dog. Both on and off lead. Would not have thought we'd have been able to achieve as much as we have without Sankiri.

I have kept dogs from the Greyhound Adoption Programme since 1999. I fostered then adopted two typically perfect greyhounds. Then Panda was offered me in March 2015. After I’d been on a waiting list for a cat friendly dog for eighteen months.What a shock! She was unbelievably naughty, chewing her way through a mobile phone, two remote controls, sundry gadgets and numerous... assorted items. I’d come back to a grinning dog a midst a sea of foamy cushion centre.Dog walker Carolyn suggested a visit from Lorraine which I duly arranged. After just half an hour Panda was sitting, walking to heel and submissive; she seemed like a different dog!So we started going to the Seaford Primary School every Sunday morning and 22 months later are still going. Panda is exceptionally obedient these days but it has become part of our routine and we enjoy it so much.Lorraine is patient, tolerant and firm. I have seen her achieve remarkable results with seemingly impossible dogs.Do not hesitate to take your puppy or dog to Sankiri!read more

Lorraine has made a huge difference to our little rescue dog Sam. Without her, Sam would have been labelled 'too aggressive' and put down, whereas now we have learned to manage him and love him to bits. She has saved many dogs who would otherwise have been thrown on the scrapheap. We felt that Sam deserved to have a life, just like the happier, more carefree dogs around him,... and she helped us make that happen. He hasn't transformed into that carefree dog, but his positives far outweigh his negatives - which wasn't the case at the start! Thanks Lorraine for loving and accepting dogs in all their messy, sometimes unacceptable forms - not just the easy ones 🙂read more

We came to Lorraine with an out-of-control and very nippy chocolate labrador puppy. Two years on we are on the right track, thanks to Lorraine's guidance and advice. Lorraine has an answer for every problem - and they actually work too. I would not hesitate to recommend.

Lorraine (dog trainer) is amazing. My dog Harvey and my confidence in handling him has improved considerably since joining Sankiri. My dog was so out of control prior to joining Sankiri that i thought about re-homing him. I now enjoy going for walks with him, have confidence in my abilities to lead him and manage his behavior. The change in my dog's behavior has been... outstanding and no food to get him to listen is required. I highly recommend Sankiri Dog Training.read more

Honey and I have just recently joined Sankiri training. Lorraine was recommended to me by a friend and I couldn't have made a better choice. I have found Lorraine to be fabulous in her approach to me (the blonde mum who really needed the training) and to Honey (who just needs better direction). She is firm but respectful and the classes are enjoyable. We both come away... exhausted but feeling like I have actually learned something, not like I still don't get it. Having been to other training schools in the past, that is really fantastic. I would not hesitate to recommend Lorraine to any one else and in fact have done so. I you love your best friend as I love Honey, you couldn't do any better than to learn from Lorraine.read more

We highly recommend Sankiri to anyone with a dog. It has been the most amazing experience learning how to train/communicate with our dog and see her grow. Lorraine has a wealth of knowledge and experience. She is passionate about sharing her knowledge and caters for all different dogs, owners and their needs and challenges. It's not just about training your dog but also... understanding behaviors and how/why they do the things they do. She is very approachable and happy to work on specific issues/questions about your dog or dogs in general. Thank you so much Lorraine for everything you have done to make me a better owner and teach us how to communicate with our border collie to have the best life together that we can.read more
