What is Behaviour Modification for Dogs?
Unlike dog obedience classes that train dogs to perform specific actions, behaviour modification classes aim to change a dog's reaction to specific situations, to people, things, or other animals. Our training sessions provide a systematic method of changing behaviour and attitude.
Private Puppy and Private Dog Training with Monica
Whether you've had your beloved dog for years or you've brought them home recently, Monica can show you exactly how to solve any behavioral issues or simply get your new puppy or dog to be well behaved in all situations.
Monica has her Dog Behaviour and Training Methodology (DBTM), has completed an Intesive Dog Walking Certification program and is certified in Pet First Aid and CPR
Monica has worked at dog rescues in Italy, Tailand and India. "Working with dogs is my purpose and my passion. There is no better feeling than helping a scared dog feel safe. I feel very fortunate that people trust me with their dogs and take that trust very seriously. Helping people form a better understanding of their dog's behaviour allows them to form a stronger bond and it's really rewarding to be a part of that experience."
Private Puppy and Private Dog Training with Phoebe
Phoebe’s passion for dogs is undeniable. She has grown up around dogs and you can see and feel her special connection with every dog she meets. She is certified in Dog Behaviour and Training Methodology (DBTM), has completed an Intensive Dog Walking Certification program and is certified in Pet First Aid and CPR. Prior to that she has her business administration certificate and has played vital roles in both retail and hospitality leadership.
She has a knack for teaching people how to better understand and communicate with their dogs. Encouraging a wholistic approach to better understand your dogs physical, mental and emotional needs is her specialty.
Here’s what she has to say: “training dogs to live seamlessly as a part of their family unit is so fulfilling. I love watching the process of dogs connecting with their families and each growing a love and respect for each other’s boundaries. I have learned so much from the dogs I walk and train and have continuously been amazed at the love and loyalty they have for their people. That’s what will always keep me pushing to learn more and help more families and dogs.”
Private Dog and Puppy Training with Liam
Liam has been part of The Leash Team for a long time since he is the "Son of The Leash Team". Liam is an athlete and a goalie. He has spent some time in the USA playing hockey and he loved every minute of that experience. However, he did miss Canada and our dogs, but thank goodness his awesome billet family had a dog!
Some of the activities that Liam enjoys outside of working with The Leash Team are video games, going to the lake, hockey, dog walks and skiing.
Liam truly loves working with the dogs and is excited about seeing the company grow and being part of that growth. We couldn't be more proud that he is working in the family business with us.
Liam is certified in Dog Behaviour and Training Methodology (DBTM), has completed the Intensive Dog Walking Certification program and is certified in Pet First Aid and CPR.
