Helping you make your dog's day better

Your Whole Dog is owned and operated by me, Annie Thorne, a Wellington-based dog trainer and canine massage therapist.

I am an advocate for a multifaceted approach to canine health, training and behaviour. Your Whole Dog reflects my philosophy that neither behaviour nor health happen in a vacuum. There are a multitude of factors to consider when looking at dog training, behaviour and health challenges. In short, if you are working with me, we will consider your whole dog.

My areas of special interest include cooperative care and fitness. I approach behaviour change with a view to ensure that the dog's behavioural and physical wellness needs are fully met.

I am a Karen Pryor Academy Certified Training Partner (KPA-CTP) and Family Dog Mediator (FDM), a Certified Professional Canine Fitness Trainer (CPCFT), and a canine massage therapist. I am also both Fear Free and Low-Stress Handling certified.
