    Ok, I'm not completely familiar with QLD... but

    Dog Clubs - Obedience, Agility, Flyball, Breed and Kennel Clubs Queensland

    Rockhampton City Council

    Also, do you have a vet you use... they may be able to recommend something?

    The vet said they only do puppy school. As did the one in the nearest town, which is 65kms away. However in saying that I never tried any vets in Rockhampton so ill def give that a go.

    Thanks for the links.

    I've never used them but have a friend who took on a two year old toy dog from a puppy farm who was an absolute mess, terribly fearful of people and would bite and wet himself if touched. They really helped him out with simple tips for helping him get over his problems and he was really happy with them. A year later the little dog is still doing well and hasn't looked back.

    You can also try contacting the QLD canine council and seeing if you have a local Kennel Club. They are often in small towns all over the place, and usually run training classes.

    Barkbusters can only give you so much, my friend used them and the main thing they teach you is tone in command. When your dog does something wrong you shout BAH! and when it does something good you say good boy/girl in a high pitched sound to differentiate tone. It lets your dog understand good from bad easier by your tone.
    On top of this they will probably give you walking excercises to do with your dog to help stimulate the mind and body of your animal and create a bond with you as pack leader.

    Pretty much with these techniques they leave it in your hands to train your dogs.
    It really takes a lot of time and commitment to train your dogs right, the more time you put into them the better your dog will be.

    Personally I trained my dog from the book "Dog Training For Dummies" step by step and put in hours upon hours of work into my dog and got exccellent results I ended up with a very very obedient dog.
    Discipline and training is the best thing you can do for your dog it gives them purpose, stimulation mentally and physically, freedom to be around people without being unruly, having the ability to let you dog run in a park knowing you have good control over your dog.

    I think Barkbusters can start you off but ultimately it falls back on you on how your dogs turn out. Try the book out it might be cheaper for you and its more fun and satisfying knowing you trained your own dogs.

    Goodluck.
