Cassandra Roland

Director and Behavioural Dog Trainer 

Cassandra is the owner of Fur Get Me Not and full time Behavioural Dog Trainer.  Fur Get Me Not is a modern dog training service driven by a commitment to positivity, quality, transparency, and service like none other.

Cassandra’s non-canine professional background was working in executive positions in the not-for-profit sector. Now she happily works every day to improve the lives of the local canine community.

Cassandra is also a Board member of the Pet Professional Guild Australia and has been certified as a professional trainer by the Pet Professional Guild and Association of Pet Dog Trainers. 

Cassandra has welcomed German shepherds, Silky terriers, Rhodesian ridgebacks and Greyhounds into her family. She currently lives with a Whippet called Bones and her soulmate, Shimmy, who is a Kelpie cross. 

Cassandra is always continuing her studies and professional development as a behavioural trainer. She regularly travels the country to ensure she brings the most current and effective training methods to her clients.

She is committed to modern positive reinforcement-based training only and believes this is the only effective method to get a well mannered and happy dog. Cassandra has also been mentored by a leading Behavioural Vet to enhance her knowledge and skills in supporting dogs with mental health issues. 

She has an advanced certificate in Canine Reactive Behaviour, Certificate in Canine Anxiety, studies in Canine Coaching and Certificate IV in Training and Assessment.

Not only is Cassandra passionate about helping busy people give their dog the life they deserve, but also assisting people to build the kind of relationship that she has with Shimmy.

Tara Ross

Dog Trainer & Blog Author

Tara Ross has been working as a dog trainer for the last five years. In this time, she has worked for several pet dog training organisations and also as the Queensland Trainer for Assistance Dogs Australia.
Tara holds a Certificate III in Dog Behaviour and Training; an Undergraduate Degree of Science, majoring in Zoology, an Undergraduate Degree in Arts majoring in Sociology; and a Postgraduate Certificate in Animal Studies. In her spare time she follows current animal behaviour research papers.
Tara’s passion is in working with humans to help prevent common behavioural issues occurring, which in turn improves the relationship between humans and their dogs and the welfare of both parties. This passion is fuelled by Tara’s previous experience working at the RSPCA and seeing many animals surrendered by their owners due to behavioural issues.  
Tara is excited to be working with Cassie at Furget Me Not. This is due to Cassie’s common focus of wanting to support the human and dog relationship, and Cassie’s commitment to continually seek out best practice in dog training and behaviour practice.
Tara has two Staffordshire Bull Terrier cross breeds, Liana and Henry, and one elderly sasspot of a cat, Sam.
