Bravo Dog offers dog training in North Vancouver, puppy training, dog training classes and virtual consulting.

We are experienced, credentialed and BC SPCA Animal Kind Accredited.

Private Training

We can work together on everything ranging from jumping up to fear and reactivity. Puppy training? We do that too!

Group Classes

We offer Puppy Kindergarten for 9 15 weeks of age and our Manners & More classes. Small sized classes to focus on results.

Zoom Virtual Training

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.

Changing our dogs’ behavior, means changing our own behavior.

    5 star review  So glad we were able to take our 8.5 month old Beagle to Renee's fantastic "Manners and more" class. Renee is incredibly knowledgeable, has a wonderful demeanor, and our puppy loved learning all of her new found skills! The small class sizes made for a great learning environment for our dog we really appreciated Renee's practical approach and easy to follow teaching style. We cannot wait to try more class offerings that Renee and the rest of Bravo Dog Training team have to offer. 5 Stars!

    5 star review  It has been so wonderful to work with Renee. Her approach to our dog's behavioural issue is positive and we are so grateful. Previous trainers taught us to "correct with punishment" or "correct with No" A constant battle and negative experience for both of us. At the end of our leash we got lucky and found Renee as a trainer. Each lesson she has been able to relieve us of tension and stress and show us how positive markings can make a change. Our dogs issue is not an over night fix but we have learned good skills on how to be successful and turn this around. No more 'No's'. More "yes''. We have learned that a positive approach to training is essential to building love and trust . Thank you so much.

    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!
