About Joy and Pawsh Dog Training

I grew up on a farm near Stettler, Alberta and have always been around animals and really enjoyed working with them. I was a member of 4H for  9 years where I was able to work with cattle which was something that I really enjoyed as well.

My interest in dog training all began when my family started to breed Bernese Mountain Dogs. I went to my first dog show and watched them compete in what I now know was Rally Obedience and Obedience. I was intrigued and started to look into it some more. Within a year, I was competing why my own dog in both Rally Obedience and Obedience.

 

Over the past six years, I have attended numerous workshops, seminars, and training weekends. My dog Vito was awarded the number one Bernese Mountain Dog in Rally Obedience in 2017. I have also finished numerous other titles on other dogs.

Since competing the past 6 years I have traveled a lot to Calgary,

Edmonton and other cities in Alberta and BC. I've always wanted my job to have the option of something closer to home in a more rural setting. I have not been able to find anything that fits the description of what I wanted to do, so I decided to create my own business.

I want people to be able to create long lasting, meaningful and healthy relationships with their dogs. I want to teach people how to enjoy their dogs and create bonds that allow the dog and owner to be happy.

I see lots of owners frustrated with their dogs and I want to help alleviate some of that frustration. Having a dog should be enjoyable and you shouldn't have to lock them up or feel anxious taking them out in public.

I want to help people create relationships with their dogs, just as I have with my own dogs. I want to show people that every dog can learn to walk on a leash without pulling and every dog can learn to sit, stay, wait, leave it, etc.

Dogs are capable of a lot more than we realize. Sometimes they just require different training methods. We need to remember that every dog is different and my goal is to help you and your dog reach your end goal.
