About Me


Qualification and Experience

K9 Communication is owned and operated by Tess who is a qualified dog trainer. I earned my qualification through the National Dog Trainers Federation and have over 5 years of experience in dog handling. I have previously worked with Pawshake (pet sitting service) and currently work with the shelter dogs at RSPCA Victoria as well as instruct at one of Victoria's leading dog training centres.


German Shepherd Rescue Victoria

I joined GSRV in 2016 and it has been one of the most challenging and rewarding experiences of my life. I volunteered to gain more experience with the breed, and to expand my knowledge on behaviour and handling dogs in general. Since that time, I have been asked to take on the role of Adoptions Coordinator; and have adopted two dogs of my own from the rescue. I spend most of my days with my two dogs who inspire me everyday to become better at the craft that I love. When I'm not spending time with them, I am usually doing all things 'shepherd rescue' related- and I wouldn't have it any other way!


I solve YOUR DOG'S problems

I often hear the same expressions from clients-
"I love my dog, but-"
"My dog is awesome, but-"
"I know that I need to do something about my dog.. because what I'm doing isn't working.'

I can help you not only solve your problems, but I also want to help solve your dog's problems. And if we do that, you will have a better understanding of your dog, you will be able to communicate better with your dog, and you and your dog will have a solid, reliable and respectful relationship.
