About Us

K9 Connect is an indoor training and workshop location for pets.  Focusing on improving animal welfare and education, we provide the general public with a modern, science-based reinforcement training option. 

The principals of K9 Connect are experienced animal behaviourists.

  • Julija Kinghorn B.Sc(hons) from Southern Cross Animal Stars; and

  • Amanda Murcutt B.AnSci from Pawsitively Great Pets.  


We have over 30 years combined experience in the Dog Training Industry.  Together we draw a wealth of information and knowledge from all aspects of dog training and ownership.


In addition, we seek to educate the professionals within the field, as well as those working with animals, to offer a professional development platform to improve skills.

K9 Connect is the home of two very successful businesses - Pawsitively Great Pets and Southern Cross Animal Stars.  Both Amanda and Julija have over 30 years of combined training experience over a variety of different skills and opportunities.
