My name is Hanne Moore with my dog Jedda, and I am the owner/operator of Kumalong Australia, a provider of top quality products for Australian dogs and owners for over 25 years. Our products are available through our online store, the RSPCA, Animal Welfare League and most dog training clubs. Kumalong products are known for their reliability and good value. Here at Kumalong Australia, we strive to offer collars and leads that are simple, reliable and long-lasting. Our products are specifically designed to support positive training methods and to help make working and playing with your dog not only convenient, but also easy for you. We enthusiastically endorse positive training methods – in fact, we are proud to be among the first to promote positive training methods in Australia over 25 years ago! Back then, products to support positive training simply weren’t available in this country. So we created Kumalong Australia, and began distributing our Head Halters, Leads, Collars and recently the very popular Front Clip Harness. Read on for more about my training credentials.
All our dog leads, dog collars and dog harnesses are Australian made. In fact, they are made right here on Sydney’s Northern Beaches. To get a completely unbiased opinion of someone in the know, take a look at this blog on the sydneydogwalker website.
Our Training Credentials
In the beginning…
Like most people, I first got “hooked” on training and trialing when I joined a dog training club with my mini-poodle ‘Toro’. Before long, I was undertaking the NSW Canine Council Instructors Course and eventually became Chief Instructor. Unfortunately, choke chains and compulsive methods of training were still considered the ‘only’ way to train a dog.
There had to be a better way…
The more I worked with dogs, the more I felt there must be a better method of training. A few of my friends and colleagues shared the same vision and soon we began meeting to discuss more positive training methods. Out of this beginning the People Pet Partnership was formed and soon after, the Canine Good Citizen Program was born. I was fortunate to be one of the first Coordinators for this program and was able to play a significant part in its development into a nationally recognized program and leader in positive motivational pet dog training.
Positive methods take hold…
Initially run jointly by the NSW Animal Welfare League and the People Pet Partnership (Australia) Inc., the Canine Good Citizen Program and later the Instructors Course have since been taken over and developed by the Delta Society. For the founding members of PPP, this was a dream come true. Today, over 500 instructors have been educated in the proper use of positive dog training methods. My legacy is to proudly wear the Canine Good Citizen Instructors ‘Badge #2’ in recognition of my early contribution.
At Kumalong Australia, we strive to offer products that are simple, reliable and long-lasting. Our products are specifically designed to support positive training methods and to help make working and playing with your dog not only convenient, but also easy for you.
