About Us

I'm Amanda the owner of Take My Lead Dog Walking Services.   
For as long as I can remember I have always wanted to work with dogs and my dream came true when I established Take My Lead in 2016 providing one on one walks around Sydney Eastern Suburbs.  Dog training became my passion when I got my Kelpie x "Jazz".  I wanted to learn how to understand and communicate with her, so we could develop the best relationship and give her the best possible life.   
I have successfully passed a number of courses and gained a range of qualifications  so I can keep up to date with modern training methods and relevant behavioural studies.  I use science based methods together with games and concepts to change a dogs emotional response, that help them to achieve the required life skills.  I believe it is important for training to be safe, easy and fun for both owners and their dogs.  
Take My Lead offers personalised dog training, puppy development programmes and also a number of varying dog walking services to suit each individual client and their needs.  

I am also fully insured, police checked and hold a canine 1st Aid Certificate.

The other member of my team is my lovely Kelpie x "Jazz", and together we are also a volunteer Canine Search and Rescue team with Search Dogs Sydney.
