Hi, I am Katrina Diem, your local Toowoomba Dog Trainer and Behaviour Consultant. As an Accredited Dog Trainer through the National Dog Trainers Federation of Australia, I have a extensive knowledge of canine learning theory and offer training based on scientifically proven methods. My trainers & I regularly attend ongoing training workshops with renowned trainers and behaviourists from around Australia and the world, so that we can bring you the most up to date training techniques and behaviour modification programs. I am also a qualified Veterinary Nurse with over 18 years experience in Brisbane and Toowoomba in general practice and emergency nursing.


With this combined knowledge and experience in dog training, behaviour and healthcare, I can offer you and your dog a unique training service.


I am passionate about helping owners gain confidence through better understanding of their dog`s behaviour and teaching them the skills to modify or correct problem behaviours, or train reliable obedience. I also love to see the positive changes in the lives of their dogs, as they learn to respect and trust their owners, and gain confidence in themselves.

Hi, I’m Eleanor (Ellie) Todd, Think Canine's obedience specialist. I have been a dog lover and owner for pretty much as long as I can remember. After doing some volunteer work with Katrina a couple of years ago, I fell in love with dog training. So I completed my Certificate III in Dog Training & Behaviour, in 2018 (through the National Dog Trainers Federation) and joined the Think Canine Team in 2019. My favourite areas of dog training are obedience and trick training. I love working with dogs, teaching them skills (that are useful for their owners, as well as fun for dogs!) and watching our four-legged friends get better and better. I have an 8-year-old Border Collie-Kelpie, Frodo, who I have built a strong relationship with, and worked up to a fairly high level of obedience. We also have a few tricks up our sleeves. I’m really looking forward to meeting you and your dog!
