As a Professional Canine Trainer (PCT-A) and canine business owner Angel has taken numerous courses throughout his career. Julie’s SA Pro training was absolutely amazing. Angel is thrilled to have yet another amazing certification on record, and the proper tools to help those dogs suffering from such and the ability to understand SA so much more. Angel believes general behaviour training is not enough. Niche-specific training is what dogs and owners desperately need. Angel has fallen in love with helping dogs conquer their SA and owners become a better support system through such.
I’ve always had a passion for improving animal welfare by helping humans learning to train more effectively! I have conducted empirical research focused on the human/animal bond and its impact on both owners and pets during graduate school and my philosophy is that through better training and improved human/dog relationships, the number of animals relinquished to shelters will be significantly reduced! Since starting my professional career in dog training my interest has been in separation-related problem behaviors commonly known as separation anxiety. I offer fear-free separation anxiety training that focuses on pet communication, socialization, and science-based behavioral theory. In addition to be a SA Pro certified trainer, I am a certified professional dog trainer, a fear-free certified trainer, and an Elite Fear Free Certified Professional. I have many years of experience (in various capacities within the animal world, from a veterinary nurse to boarding manager, to certified dog trainer) in supporting pet owners making the needed changes in their pet’s habits. My passion and focus for the past three years have been learning all I can about canine separation anxiety-related behaviors. I have attended seminars in the subject matter and I have trained under the mentoring of one of the world’s leading experts in Separation Anxiety. I maintain my education up to date so I can provide the quality all dogs and owners deserve. My goal is to help as many owners and dogs as I can overcome the debilitating fear that makes home departures impossible and turns otherwise great dogs into fearful, unhappy dogs.
My work is my passion, my love, my puzzle to analysis because each Dog is unique and special. The Dog communicates by behaviour, body language, play, brain work etc. All those pieces give Us many combinations to find THAT right place for THAT piece to understand his/her personality. This is the most powerful and important knowledge to have. By knowing it, we can concentrate on adjusting the training plan to his/her personality. I love analyzing and asking plenty of questions, sometimes it is a chat with the dog “Why do you do it? What are you trying to tell me? ” Soon after, the eyes/body language starts speaking to me. Sometimes, I feel like a channel between the dog and its owner to help them to understand each other. I love seeing the Owner’s happiness & confidence after a few sessions with me. How proud they are because they could understand their own dog. That sparkle in their eyes melts my heart. The priceless moment for me is the last day of training. Unforgettable feelings to see the bond, the relationship, confidence & pride between them. That moment, where my puzzle is finished and the picture shows “The Bond with the Dog” is completed.
