Hello! I’m Kirsty

Certified Professional Dog Trainer

Manners Under Distraction Dog Training is run and operated by me Kirsty Matthews. I have always had a complete love for animals and end up helping out with transport and fundraising for rescue groups. I wanted to foster dogs however our family had two rescue dogs Bella (picture with me) and a dog aggressive corgi cross named Buster. Due to Busters behavioural issues i couldn’t foster until I learnt about Alpha Canine Group in Melbourne.  Knowing there was very limited trainers in north east Victoria i decided this was my opportunity to not only help buster and the rescue group but the wider community have better relationship with their dogs. in 2014 I completed The Professional Dog trainer course though Alpha Canine Professionals and 2017 and 2018 i further my studies with an Advanced Professional Dog Trainers certificate with Alpha and a Therapy Dog Certificate through Lead The Way Institute.

"We had Kirsty out for our Husky. He was always jumping up at people and knocking some over. He was very quick to improve and even after the first week we begun seeing a huge change in him "
