Tess Morgan worked with dogs at the Toronto Humane Society, the BC SPCA and in veterinary clinics prior to earning her Certificate in Training and Counselling (CTC) from the Academy for Dog Trainers in 2020. She is also an IAABC Supporting Member. She enjoys helping families understand their dog’s behaviour and strengthen their bond with their dog while making training fun for all involved. Tess is committed to science-based, humane training methods and looks forward to continuing her learning in order to better serve dogs and the people who love them. When not training, Tess enjoys exploring beautiful B.C. with her two dogs, Lily and Alvin.
How to hire a dog trainer. It’s a daunting task. Bravo Dog credentials and certifications and credentials are listed here.
There are NO REGULATIONS for dog trainers. This means that you, and your dog are vulnerable when hiring a dog trainer.
Clients deserve honesty and transparency. This means I will make you aware of the tools we will and will not use and the methods we will or will not use. I will also disclose any possible side effects from using certain training methods.
We are BC SPCA Animal Kind Accredited, read more about the standards here. We will never use shock/e-collars, or any methods that cause intimidation, fear or force.
We continually update our education throughout the calendar year to keep up with our certifications and most importantly to provide you with the most current behaviour science solutions possible.
