  • Maureen, Lucy & Skye

    "Shona’s positive, calm, confident presence around dogs is such a joy to see! She is able to connect with all kinds of dogs and their owners, even my high energy border collies! I am amazed at her knowledge and ability with teaching tricks to dogs!!"

  • Harriet & Penny

    "Tanya really helped me advance with my dog while training for rally obedience & agility. She is knowledgeable, & uses a fair and common sense approach to dog training. I appreciate her willingness to change her approach to each dogs unique needs & to be open to discussion & questions regarding my dogs learning & behaviour."

  • Ali & Cricket

    "I’ve had the opportunity to work with Shona over the past three years & have greatly benefited from her gentle insights. Shona is not only extremely knowledgeable on how dogs communicate & shaping their behaviours, she is also able to explain it clearly & most importantly KINDLY to you! I highly recommend Shona for anyone looking to build a strong, healthy & fun-loving bond with their pup!

  • Jennifer & Remi

    "I think I have one of the best dogs ever thanks to Tanya's training. Remi (dog) has never chewed anything she wasn't supposed to. I know I can leave her in the house unattended and nothing will be destroyed. She is responsive to commands and understands what she is allowed to do and not do."
