The Fur Get Me Not Story

Fur Get Me Not was born through recognition that people and their expectations of their dogs are changing. Dogs are no longer just pets they are an integral part of the family. This means there is an increased expectation of the level of manners or behaviour we expect of our dogs.  

Fur Get Me Not’s mission is to improve the wellbeing and mental health of dogs and help people to live the life they want to live with their dog. Fur Get Me Not believes that the only effective way to train a dog is by building a strong relationship built on trust and mutual respect. Committed to only using methods that are scientifically proven and effective and based on positivity, quality and transparency. People were seeking a service that took a kind and gentle approach not just with their dog but the entire family and Fur Get Me Not is committed to always erring on the side of kindness.

Cassie was great - she was so understanding and supportive and we spent our initial time really assessing the issue and seeing lots of supports to help manage what was a major anxiety issue (also associated with his Cushings). We needed to take my little man to the behavioural vet for medication... and she made time to come down for the visit and also be a back up support for discussing strategies throughout. Really caring and with a very deep understanding of dogs and behaviour - and also how owners manage. I saw the broad range of services she offered - great. Really recommendread more

We did private training with Cassandra and found her so compassionate and helpful. After implementing her advice it’s like we have a whole new dog. He is happy and a well mannered family member. Definitely the best Dog Behaviourist in Brisbane!

We loved doing classes with you with Archie! It was so much better than any dog obedience club or class in Brisbane. Archie and I both had so much fun and I loved that you gave us individual attention and tips.

Linus loved his time at Puppy school and was absolutely smitten with Cass! Really inclusive yet small sized puppy classes which means you get plenty of one-on-one time and Cass is so patient and knowledgeable. Plenty of training options beyond just the initial puppy school as well as puppy &... adolescent playgroup which has been so good for exercise and socialisiation! Great facility too with the shop including puzzles, leads, food, treats etc. Highly recommend!!read more

We have just completed the puppy preschool with our Spoodle, and it was excellent. Cassie is very knowledgeable and patient, and passionate about positive and “natural” methods of dog training. The training methods are easy to understand and follow, and Cassie always makes sure the pups and... owners are enjoying the challenge and not getting frustrated. Small class sizes are great, and Cassie is also very responsive to any follow-up questions via email or social Media. We will be signing up for the more advanced classes in the future!read more

I can honestly say Cassandra is so knowledgeable and patient.

After completing puppy preschool I enrolled her into the manners class and she loves attending... playgroup. Highly recommend Fur Get Me Not and Cassandra.read more

Cassie and Courtney have been fantastic in helping us train our Labrador puppy Billie. We have been attending the playgroups since Billie was 3 months old and now Billie can play nicely with all dogs big or small. I would highly recommend them. Their love of dogs is clearly evident.

Cooper and I love Cassie and her team ? we have been using Fur Get Me Not for nearly 10 months now and will continue to in the future. Cassie was great when we had “biting” issues with our young Aussie Shepherd and gave great guidance. We have completed a few courses with Cassie and found that... her enthusiasm is infectious with the dogs and they just love training with her. We love her positive reinforcement training methods and know Cooper adores Cassie. Leaving a young pup at home alone while we went to work was hard but having Cassie drop by during the day to check on him was reassuring. We even trust Cassie with the keys to our house! We can’t recommend Cassie and her team enough, they have made training so enjoyable and easy. We can’t wait to get another pup to do the training all over again!read more

We LOVE Cassie & her team from Fur Get Me Not! She has been an absolute lifesaver on many occasions over the past 2years we’ve been using her services for regular twice weekly dog walking. Cassie gently and carefully re-trained our playful, strong willed pup to walk politely on a lead and has... come to my rescue when I’ve run out of food (many times). Cassie is an amazing trainer & so passionate about good quality care for our favourite furry family member! Cassie has excellent customer service, is flexible & so willing to accomodate. Can’t recommend her highly enough.read more

I can honestly say that Cassie and her team at Fur Get Me Not are the best, we went to other training schools and Cassie is a stand out. My dog has anxiety, so not only is Cassie great for general manners, she is also an accomplished behaviourist, who understands dog anxiety (and owners) when my... dog was displaying obnoxious social behaviours such as barking and attention seeking.read more

Highly recommend Fur Get Me Not. My puppy Murphy just completed his Puppy Preschool and will definitely be continuing with puppy school here. I have received so much support and guidance on how to train Murphy whilst giving him the opportunity to interact and play with all sorts of other dog... breeds. I have had dogs my whole life and thought i was pretty knowledgeable but i have learnt so much from Cassandra. I also recommend there puppy play dates where you get further advice and support.read more

I honestly couldn’t thank Cassandra enough for how she has helped Bow over come his fears as a pup of other dogs! He was extremely nervous and shy the first time we went to puppy pre-school and now after the third time he is a totally different dog. He knows his basic commands, comes to his name,... and doesn’t bark at other dogs. Definitely give Cassandra a call if you’re interested in puppy school, definitely one of the best!!!!! Highly recommend.read more

I asked Cassandra to help me get a planned approach with training for my rescue dog but she gave us so much more than that. She helped me identify and structure my plan to meet the needs of Wednesday and our family. She was so kind and generous, Wednesday loved her and had a great time with her.... She gave me lessons and tips on how to succeed in training at home and many great ideas for enrichment activities for my smart, active dog. I felt I got more than I asked for or even knew that I needed. Thank you Cassandraread more

I asked Cassie to help with my dog's fear of other dogs and she came to the rescue. An hour and a half later, with her gentle and caring approach, both he and I were feeling much better - she left us with the tools to address the problem and her follow-up support has been amazing. I highly... recommend her services.read more

Everyone at Fur Get Me Not are amazing. They are so friendly and helpful. Kai now sits when requested,and comes when called (unless there is something super interesting like a bird). They not.only walk your dog they do a little bit of training, games and interesting and fun things for your dog to... do. Kai could hear Kellie get out of her car and he would be so excited to see her it would take him a few minutes to calm down. I would absolutely recommend this service to anyone who has a dog!read more

I am so impressed by Fur get me not's professionalism, they don't just walk your dog, they consider what enjoyment they can deliver to them. The map that tracks their walk and the location of where they take photos that they provide is amazing. I have recently had an operation and can't walk my... dog, she is only young and I was worried that all the training that I have done with her would be forgotten but this is a such a brilliant alternative as fur get me not will continue with reminding her of her manners and practise loose leash walking . Well done Fur Get Me Not !!read more
