Private Dog Training

How is Our Private Dog Training Sessions Different From Other Dog Training Classes?

Unlike dog obedience classes that train dogs to perform specific actions, dog training 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 Dog Training with Monica


Private Dog Training Monica

Whether you've had your beloved dog for years or brought them home recently, Monica can show you exactly how to solve any behavioral issues or 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 Intensive Dog Walking Certification program and is certified in Pet First Aid and CPR.

Monica has worked at dog rescues in Italy, Thailand, 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 gratifying to be a part of that experience."

Private Dog Training with Phoebe


Dog training Pheobe

Phoebe’s passion for dogs is undeniable. She has grown up around dogs; 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. Before that, she had her business administration certificate and played vital roles in retail and hospitality leadership. 

She has a knack for teaching people how to understand better and communicate with their dogs. Encouraging a holistic approach to understand better your dog's physical, mental, and emotional needs is her specialty. 

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 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 will keep me pushing to learn more and help more families and dogs.” 

Private Dog Training with Liam


Private Dog Training 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 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.

How Dogs Make us Better Humans

Tails of Unconditional Love

This book is a passion project brought to life during the deep dark days of Covid-19. The idea was inspired by the author’s work in leadership and her love of dogs. These two different worlds and two different passions are combined to create 16 very informal and whimsical stories about what dogs can teach us. The themes that come to light circle around unconditional love, self-leadership, and how to be better humans. The tales are heartwarming and real. The messages reveal how our canine friends help us grow in the big and small moments of our lives if we are present and willing to listen. It begs the questions, What is a dog's purpose? and Are we really present to the world around us?
