Having started her dog training journey in the shelter world, Sharon decided that she could make the greatest difference in dog’s lives and those of their humans by ensuring that dog’s stayed in their homes. Sharon started Hanging With Hounds in 2013 and works with a wide variety of canine behaviour ranging from puppies – who don’t love puppies – to more complex behaviour such as separation anxiety. Sharon is a multi-certified trainer carrying designations from a number of leading dog training organizations. Her approach is to ‘do no harm’ so all training will be done with the dog’s welfare and those of their people to be front and center in her training approach. Sharon is accredited through the BC SPCA AnimalKind Program, a rigorous program whose mandate is to raise the standard of the dog training industry in British Columbia. Having a special interest in working with dogs suffering from fears and phobias including separation anxiety led Sharon to become a Certified Separation Anxiety Trainer (CSAT) in 2018. Given a desire to stay current and to continue to build knowledge in this challenging area, Sharon pursued further professional development and is proud to add SA Pro Trainer to her list of qualifications. Sharon sees separation anxiety clients from across Canada.

She is incredibly excited and feels extraordinarily blessed to be able to help clients with dogs suffering from Separation Anxiety through her business, Separation Anxiety In Dogs Decoded.

Jess is a dog behaviour nerd based in Hamilton, Ontario. She has a psychology degree from The University of Western Ontario and three years of experience in the field of applied behaviour analysis. After seeing how positive reinforcement promoted long-lasting behaviour changes in her human clients, she became interested in an analytic approach to canine behaviour. Underdog Training was born as a passion project that uses only evidence-based, modern, and fear-free approaches to shaping canine behaviour. Canine separation anxiety is her main area of interest, after helping her own pup Luna cope with alone-time anxiety. She has completed her SA Pro Certification and is also completing her dog trainer certification through Canine Academy in Milton, Ontario. She strives to help dogs like Lu, and dog guardians like herself, navigate separation anxiety and achieve alone time comfort.
Jamie has been operating CNDR since 2017 which started out as an in-home boarding and walk business, but quickly turned into the training business that it is today after she adopted her dog, Carter. Carter came to them when he was over one year old and had deep-seated fear toward people, dogs, and handling. He is the spark that lit the fire for her passion for canine behaviour. She has completed certificates in Canine Reactivity, Canine Fear, is St. John’s Pet First Aid Certified, Karen Pryor Academy Dog Trainer Comprehensive Program, holds her CPDT-KA certification, is a Fear-Free Certified Trainer, and SA Pro Trainer. Jamie focuses on helping owners learn to better understand their fearful and anxious dogs, build confidence and trust, and create new and fun experiences with their dogs using patient, force-free, and rewards-based training practices. She runs all things CNDR, from booking clients, and creating programs, to running the social media and web pages, to hosting and editing the podcast!
