All instructors and most assistants have over 37 YEARS hands on experience with dogs. We all actively train and show our own dogs. The proof is in the results: we have had nationally ranked dogs in agility and obedience as well as internationally certified therapy dogs that visit nursing homes and hospitals, 1 assistant has 35 titles while the other instructor has over 130 titles on their own dogs in multiple venues including titles at the highest levels in obedience, agility, nosework and rally, and 1 instructor is the only evaluator in Canada for Therapy Dogs International. She also does the testing for Canine Good Neighbour (CGN) for the Canadian Kennel Club.
