Do you want a happy & well behaved dog?

Welcome to Dogs Best Friend, Dog Behavioural Consultancy. 

Selina McIntyre (B.A.A.T.) a Dog Behavioural Consultant and Dog Trainer, will bring passion and empathy to your situation.

After all, dogs are family :-) 

Call Selina at Dogs Best Friend today on 021 353 669

for a non - obligation chat about your situation.  

Do you just wish your dog would relax? Are they just sooo excitable! Maybe they are a bit grumpy around other dogs (to say the least)? Well, for these behaviours and more that can be impacting on your household, you have come to the right place.

Hi, my name is Selina McIntyre and along with my family 

(hubby, two kids, Trev and Lily the Border Terriers and Isobelle the cat) dogs are my life's passion.

I studied animal behaviour and specifically canine behaviour as part of my Bachelor of Applied Animal Technology.

I have extensive working experience with dogs and my Dog Behavioural Consultancy was established in 2004. As part of this, I offer Free School Education Visits (within my business zone). I have been sought out as an advisor on dog behaviour and dog training for television, radio and print media and have worked with local dog businesses in advisory and educational capacities. 


Dogs Best Friend offers practical, positive and natural solutions to the problems you are having with your dogs behaviours. 

I truly feel I know this wonderful species well and would love to share this knowledge with you.


I approach the issues you are having with your dogs behaviours from your dogs perspective, explaining to you what is really going on. Essentially, what your dog was trying to do and why...

With this insight you can then undertake a Behavioural Modification Plan, written for you and demonstrated, working   towards a happy and content canine family member and usually a calmer human family also ;-)  

*I do not advocate the use of 'Alpha Rolling' methods (forcibly rolling a dog onto it's back) choker chains, shock or vibration (E - Collars) and spray collars.

**If required for your circumstances, I work with your Veterinarian to tailor your modification plan. 

A bit hyped up and not entirely accurate but hey ...



"When I look into the eyes of an animal, I do not see an animal. 

I see a living being.

I see a friend. I feel a soul."

A.D. Williams 

*My aim with Dogs Best Friend is to bring long term happiness to each and every dog I encounter and thus improve the overall pack dynamic also that he or she lives in.
