Not just another dog walker.
Not just another dog trainer.
2 in 1 solutions for a happier and better behaved dog.
Since 1998, I have been running my own business offering dog walking, doggy daycare, boarding, and training, specializing in dogs with behavioural issues such as fear, anxiety, reactivity, and aggression. I’m certainly not a new kid on the block.
I have trained in multiple dog sports and have raised and trained a number of working pups all of whom are now working as police or private agency K9s.
Always striving for better results and being addicted to learning, over the years I have watched or attended many various seminars and courses, and have had the pleasure to work with and learn from many highly accomplished trainers from all sorts of backgrounds and disciplines from all over the world.
I love dogs, I love behaviour, but most of all I love being able to apply the knowledge and experience which I have accumulated over the years to help make a difference in the lives of dogs and the humans who live with them.
Walk and Train was born after a realization that there exists a gap and a need in the learning process for many dogs. Picture this. Have you ever noticed when a trainer handles a student’s dog in the class, that dog performs amazingly! The dog then goes back to his owner and it’s as if he had completely forgotten that he just did the very thing his owner is now again struggling with getting him to do. It’s because how you handle a dog, how you are able to read the most minute changes in their body posture and adjust accordingly, all can make a world of difference in how quickly the dog understands what is expected of him. As dog trainers, we attempt to pass as much of that knowledge on to our students as possible, but the reality is that these are often skills that took years to acquire.
When you and I work together, your dog will learn FASTER! You will enjoy a better behaved dog quicker while still being actively involved in the process of teaching your dog. As your dog learns the necessary concepts with me, you will experience the benefit of having less frustrating moments in your own training sessions. Think of this service as learning wheels for your training experience! I help both you and your dog come together towards a common goal of a happy life together.
