GET TO KNOW

Your Teachers

Sandy has been certified by DogBiz as a force and fear free dog walker since 2016. She began assisting Bravo group classes in early 2020 under the guidance of Renee. Sandy is on track to graduate with a Diploma of Canine Behavior Science & Technology at CASI by May of 2021 and will be aiming to obtain her CPDT certification shortly after. Her philosophy and advocacy in bridging our lives with our dogs in a trusting manner includes meeting where the dogs are and not where we want them to be. Additionally, by viewing our relationship with dogs from a place of “look what I can do for the dog” and not “look what I can make my dog do”.

Sandy Wei

Teacher

Carolina (she/her) is passionate about science-based and force-free dog training and handling. She is about to complete a Diploma of Canine Behaviour Science & Technology at CASI by the end of April 2021. She just completed and passed the exam of the Living & Learning with Animals with Dr. Susan Friedman. Carolina strongly believes that listening to what dogs wants and needs, keeping training fun and rewarding, and allowing dogs to have choices is the key to a happy and healthy dog. When not spending time on her education, Carolina can be found hiking and/or training her dog Avon Barksdale in Rally-O, Agility, Tricks, and Dock Diving.
