Wells Instrument and Electrical Services started working with The Dog Safe Workplace in August 2014 and actively train their staff using both classroom and online training on dog awareness and safety.

"We have had a dramatic decrease in dog bites in the past two years." 

Mark Benson, Operations Manager, Wells Instrument and Electrical Services

Great course for educating those with little canine experience - quick and easy to undertake. Common sense type scenarios covered for those with experience around dogs.

It was very useful and dispels some of those myths associated with dogs - wagging tail, belly rubs etc.  I like the mini checkpoint quizzes as they make you stop and think about what you have read.   Would absolutely recommend this to my staff and other colleagues particularly those that have limited experience with dogs.

I would not change anything about the course due to the fact that it consisted of valid and important aspects that pertain to not only keeping ourselves safe but also the dog(s).  I enjoyed the course very much because I actually felt I learned much about how to respect the common sense things of being aware and safe when faced with situations such as the ones seen in the videos. Thank you.

REINZ has used Jo Clough from The Dog Safe Workplace for a number of our different events around the country, more recently at our 2016 Residential Property Management Conference in Wellington.

Jo is a strong speaker and we consistently receive feedback from our members who really enjoy her presentation and are keen to share her insights with their colleagues in their offices, families and friends.

“Interesting and informative”, “Very well presented”, “Great presentation and relevant” and “Awesome!!” were some of the comments recently received.

Our thanks again Jo for a job really well done.

Louise Gordon, Events Manager, REINZ

Very informative and teaches the basics of understanding dog behaviour. Instills the use of common sense when approaching an area where a dog could be.

It was very informative and interactive. I thought I knew how to keep myself safe; however, I have learnt so many useful tips and hints. I will certainly put these to use the next time I visit a home with dog(s).

 Thank you to the team at Dog Safe Training.

We didn’t realize how little we knew about being dog safe. This training was very informative and is something we can put into use straight away, and i feel it is essential for the safety of our Property Management and Sales Teams when visiting properties.  I highly recommend “Dog Safe Training” to any Property Management or Sales Teams out in the field.

I am the managing director for Solus, a workplace safety and compliance organisation. I recently attended the Dog Safety in the Workplace course with The Dog Safe Workplace (previously part of PET First Aid & Training). The course was concise, the instructor was knowledgeable and the information given to take a way with us was of the highest quality.

I will be recommending the training to organisations where the employees may encounter dogs in the performing their duties.

Thank you

Sean McBride, Solus

The course was the right length and the information was useful - I don't like dogs and I don't know a lot about them so the course was very informative.

Online Participant, Department of Corrections

It was very informative. I'm a dog owner and dog lover and I still learnt some good tips. I have been around dogs all my life - all different kinds but still found the course useful.

Thank you.

Provided dog safe training to Nova Energy Limited.  The training was spot on for our requirements – factual, relevant and delivered in a professional and engaging way.

The course is 100% "on the money". My opinion should count for something - I was a dog control officer for 20 years.

Online Participant, Department of Corrections
