Why us…

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.

Credentials & Experience Matter.

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.

Insured: for your safety and ours
