I don’t need to “see” your dog misbehave or struggle in order to help. You may have questions about your new puppy! We can help.

Our values & standards

When I started Bravo Dog my sole goal was to help dogs and their owners. That hasn’t changed much over the years. Working as a dog trainer in North Vancouver and Vancouver has not limited me to helping other people, in fact, people all over the world learn about dog behavior through our Podcast, our Virtual Training and Online courses.

I continue to further my own knowledge with continuing education and certifications and ensuring we adhere to the BC SPCA Animal Kind Standards.

    5 star review  Renée is educated, experienced and the best in the field. I have know Renée for many years now and I it is difficult not to recommend the best in the professional field. Renée uses science/reward based training methods that will help your dog succeed in the world we live in. No matter what difficulty your dog faces she has the answer for you. Remember in the world of dog training the best handlers are those who use the least invasive methods to train your dogs which means fear and pain free and no use of intimidation or other aversive training tools to get the desired behavior.

    5 star review  Bravo Dogs is super speedy at getting back to me and asks great questions in order to figure out how to best help. She followed up and provided me great help in my area. Her training help fixed a serious problem we were having with our dog in less than a week. She was supportive and encouraging along the way, when I felt super discouraged and unsure the issue would resolve. We haven’t had an issue since. I highly recommend Bravo Dogs and our family will for sure consult with her in the future as we need to. I also highly suggest her Bravo Dogs podcast!

    5 star review  Renée is an incredible instructor and I can't recommend her enough! We took her puppy classes with our first puppy ever and can't wait for the manners classes in March. She's incredibly smart and patient (both with the dogs and owners). She never judges, listens patiently and provides helpful tips for any issues you bring up. It's clear to see how much she cares about dogs as our companions rather than just as pets. I wish we could have weekly classes with Renée forever!
