About Your Next Favorite Dog Trainer

Relationships start here

Passionate. Patient. Persistent. Pet-lover. These are just a few of the characteristics that describe me. I know each pet/human relationship is different, and I’ll work with you to give you the specific and compassionate guidance you need. Whether you’re thinking about getting a companion, have a new pet, or already own a pet with behavioural problems, I am here to help.



With the current restrictions around groups of people and the need for physical distances, we are teaching with a combination of media and small outdoor classes so you can stay comfortable and safe while you learn. 

Most classes can be taken remotely if that works better for you. In fact, for some dogs it's actually a better option! We're here to help!



Put your best paw forward

Puppies and puppy parents need specialized help. The puppies grown and change so quickly and learn, good and bad, so fast! We offer classes for the young puppies and the budding teenagers. Start off right!

Manners in the modern world

We offer group classes for puppies and adult dogs. We encourage the dogs and their humans to move at their own pace.

Behavior Consulting

Accommodating Your Lifestyle

Behaviour Consulting work involves an intimate understanding of your animal’s natural and individual history. Your pet has plenty of potential to learn and understand, and my techniques will lay the foundation for you to build upon. I combine your needs and wants with the natural attributes of your pet to help you reach harmony.
