Mission Statement

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.

    review rating 5  We rescued our dog Ellie from the SPCA who is wonderful but jumps and barks at other dogs. We were recommended to see Renee by multiple sources and she quickly assessed Ellie as leash frustrated but friendly with dogs off leash. Renee listened to our concerns gave us baby steps where we needed baby steps and gave us leaps where we needed leaps based on her assessment of our dog, not just wrote training steps. She coached us through the techniques for helping our girl, gave us the tools and encouraging us to trust our dog. If we hadn’t of started working with Renee, Ellie would definitely still be on leash, not allowed near other dogs, without an end in sight. I honestly cried a few times before working with Renee as I was overwhelmed. We are both so thankful for her guidance, support and understanding of Ellies behaviors and her coaching of Ellie and most importantly of us too. When we finally let Ellie loose in a dog park (which went awesome) I immediately texted Renee at probably 6 oclock on a Saturday and Renee was probably as excited as us. We aren’t done with training yet but we have guidance and milestones to reach and will absolutely continue to use Renee to get us to where we would like to be.

    review rating 5  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.

    review rating 5  Renee turned around our training experience completely. She took the time to know and understand our dog and his quirks and set him and us up for success. Her expertise and passion show in her work, and her quest for continual learning leaves me confident that we’re learning the best. Thank you Renee - you made a huge difference to our family and helped us rookies learn how to be good dog owners.
