I’ve been in the dog training industry for 16 years and had my own dog suffer from SA, that’s what got me interested in the topic and find a better way than just letting them ” cry it out” or that good old ” they just have to deal with it” I’m so glad to be able to now share this knowledge with owners!

Jackie Moyano transitioned careers from a respiratory therapist to dog training. In addition to caring for patients, she also taught both patients and respiratory therapy students. Jackie’s medical teaching experience lends itself well to teaching people how to train their dogs. Pssst! Dog training is really people training! Jackie’s dog training expertise and education comes from completing 3 of Pat Miller’s training academies, attending Ken Ramirez’ Animal Training Seminar at SHEDD Aquarium, attending Sue Sternberg’s Eden Internship working with Alaskan husky sled dogs, plus completing all 5 of the Bailey-Farhoody chicken workshops where Jackie learned animal training science and practiced training skills with chickens. Jackie actively pursues continuing education and recently added a separation anxiety credential, SAPro to her name. Jackie’s training partners are her Siamese cat and her Dachshund Terrier mix.

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.
