JAMES FRUZE

Dog Behaviour Expert

James Fruze has over a decade of experience in dog behaviour training. Renowned for being able to training dogs mostly without needing to speak with them, James is commonly referred to as a dog whisperer with an exceptional ability to communicate and work with dogs of all breeds and ages.


In 2018 James was diagnosed with Adult ADHD. It turns out that James actually had this long before being properly diagnosed. His incredible ability to read and interpret animal behaviours is likely a gift from his ADHD diagnosis that he has learned to harness and do as much good for the dog owning community enriching the lives of others.

"It is now very clear to me that my mission and purpose in life is to teach people how to understand and be with their dogs an a level that most people have not yet experienced. Our dog's are almost always a direct reflection of our own energy and have an incredible ability to teach us the most important lessons we as humans need to learn in life. This is so much more than dog training and I`m honored to have the opportunity to connect with people and teach them how to have the best life possible with these amazing creatures and as individuals." -James Fruze

PawPals Day Care Malaga

Unit 1, 26 Industry Street Malaga WA 6090 View Map

WHAT AGES ARE ACCEPTED INTO PUPPY SCHOOL?

Puppies aged between 8 weeks and 14 weeks are accepted. If your dog is 15 weeks or older you can enrol in the phase one course HERE

WHAT IS YOUR APPROACH TO DOG TRAINING?

Every experience a puppy has will determine how they behave for the rest of their life. I have mastered dog communication. My approach is to build trust and respect using a calm approach. I do NOT use any harsh tools or methods in my training.

WHAT ARE VACCINATION REQUIREMENTS?

To attend puppy class your dog has to of had at least their first vaccination. Puppy class areas are thouroughly sanitized before every class with a hospital grade virus product as it is very important that we provide a safe environment for all the puppies. Proof of vaccinations will be required before the first puppy class (You will be sent a link to upload a photo of your dog's vaccinations after the first dog free session).

*Please note: failure to provide proof of first vaccination will mean you will not be able to participate in the course and may lose your payment if no prior communication is received.

WHAT DO I NEED TO BRING?

For phase one all you need to bring is your puppy, and a suitable lead and collar/harness. Everything else is provided.

WHAT IF MY PUPPY IS QUITE TIMID AND/OR FEARFUL, WILL THIS TRAINING IMPROVE THEIR CONFIDENCE?

This course will start to have a significant impact on your puppy's confidence. A fearful puppy will never overcome their fears if we allow them to keep avoiding scary situations. This course provides dogs that are generally fearful an opportunity to overcome their fears in a safe and controlled environment at a pace that is comfortable for them whilst still encouraging them to build their confidence. If your puppy is nipping, yelping or hides frequently do not hesitate to enrol. This is just their way of telling us that they do not like what is happening. As you will learn on the course there are multiple ways to avoid that behaviour by providing the right training, so your puppy learns to be more confortable in life. This course has worked wonders for fearful puppy's and they are now living more happy, comfortable lives.

DO I NEED TO DO ALL 4 COURSES?

No. Progressing after level one is completely up to you. Each course is enrolled separately.
