Professional Dog Training & Dog Behavior Consultation
Sunshine Coast, BC

Specialized in Reactive and High Energy Dogs

Are you puzzled by your dog's behavior? The Gibsons Dogrunner, as a certified dog trainer and behavior consultant,  specializes in understanding and addressing a variety of canine issues. From puppy foundation training and adolescent dog behavior to reactivity, aggression, anxiety, and phobias, including separation anxiety, my approach is rooted in positive reinforcement, fear-free, aversive-free and science-based methods. I also focus on reducing arousal and managing high-energy dogs through predation substitution techniques to help them to excel in recall, leash walk and off-leash walking.
Whether you're dealing with a specific challenge or simply seeking to strengthen your bond with your furry friend, I'm here to help you and your dog speak the same language.
Based in Gibsons and serving all of the Sunshine Coast, BC.

Let's transform confusion into connection and build a harmonious relationship with your canine companion!
