Certification

Dog training is not a regulated industry, therefor anyone can designate themselves as a "dog trainer". After many years and hundreds of hours working with dogs and their people I decided to set myself apart from many others in the field by investing in some formal education.  

Dip.CBST

In 2014 I enrolled in, and graduated from the Canine Animal Sciences Institute with my diploma in Canine Behaviour Science and Technology with a focus on aggression

Puppy Lab

In 2021 I completed the Puppy Lab course with School of Canine Science. In addition to my interest in aggressive behaviour, I am also passionate about puppy development, and helping families navigate the often difficult first months of raising a pup.  

CPDT-KA

In 2021 I decided to write the certification exam for professional dog trainers. The certification council for professional dog trainers is the leading independent certifying organization for progressional dog trainers.

Continuing Education

There is always more to learn, and taking courses, attending seminars and conferences is the way to stay up to date and educated on the many sciences connected to dog training, learning theory, and training techniques.
