I am a certified dog trainer. Took courses from the Animal Behavior College. Have volunteered at Etobicoke Humane Society in Toronto which is a privately funded small no kill shelter. My duties there included walking and training dogs. I have been owned by dogs most of my life.
Recently my beautiful Shetland Sheepdog, Davina died at age thirteen.
I have looked after and trained my own dog. I do private training sessions and am strictly a positive trainer and will not use choke collars, spike collars, electric shock collars in training. Nor will I force a dog into a position such as forcing his rear end down into a sit positron. Will not use any physical punishment. To correct behavior I will withhold rewards or attention. . If your pet stays with me either during the day or overnight, he/she will get lots of attention, lots of walks and cuddles. There will be play as well depending on the age of your dog. If a puppy, will continue house training schedule. If your dog is a senior will provide leisurely walks. In hot weather will bring water with on walks. I can also administer medication if needed.
