Renée is knowledgeable, approachable and skilled - basically everything you want in a dog trainer! She is a strong advocate for force-free, humane, evidence-based training methods and will help you build a strong and trusting relationship with your dog. Doesn’t get much better than Bravo Dog.
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.
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!
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.
We can work together on everything ranging from jumping up to fear and reactivity. Puppy training? We do that too!
We offer Puppy Kindergarten for 9 15 weeks of age and our Manners & More classes. Small sized classes to . focus on results
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.
