Common Questions

What People Are Asking Us

Do you offer Group Classes?

I am only doing private, in-home training at this time.

Do you have Puppy Curriculums?

Yes! Please see "Puppy Prep Package" in my Services tab.

What is your approach to Dog Training?

I am a force free, fear free, positive reinforcement dog trainer. This means I use rewards (treats, toys, and whatever else your dog may find incentivizing) in my training, in conjunction with an overall holistic approach to behavior. Before I take on any new client, I strongly recommend that issues be brought to a trusted veterinarian to rule out any medical contributions to the dog's behaviour. I do not use any aversive techniques in my training (from leash corrections to electric collars), and I'm happy to help anyone who is looking to move away from such tools!

My Dog is Aggressive/ has Separation Anxiety- can you help me?

Although I have worked with fearful and reactive dogs, true Dog Aggression and Separation Anxiety are not my areas of expertise. I would advise you seek the help of an experienced Force Free, board certified Veterinary Behaviorist.

Where are you located?

I have no facility of my own at this time. Therefore, I provide In-home training and training in public spaces (when appropriate) to residents of East Ottawa and Beyond! Travel fees may apply.

What are your Qualifications?

Although my educational background is in Fish & Wildlife Management, I have 4 + years of dog training experience. I am certified through The International School for Canine Psychology & Behavior (The ISCP Diploma in Canine Behavior), Good Dog Academy (GDA-PPDT 2021), Fear Free (2021), Kim Brophey L.E.G.S Applied Ethology Family Dog Mediation Professional Course (2022) and a member of the Canadian Association of Professional Dog Trainers (Member 695). I am continuously growing my certifications and pursing up to date science on Dog training and Behavior.

I'm interested in working with you- how do I get started?

I'm so glad to hear that! Please sent me a message through the "Contact Us" section my Home Page! :)
