Frequently Asked Questions


Critter Gal is all about positivity! Through the use of positive reinforcement and rewards based training you will see definite results! I don’t believe in the use of corrections or punishment-based training such as the use of shock collars. By rewarding your dog with treats, toys, and plain old love when they offer the behaviours you like instead of punishing them when they show the behaviours you don’t, you will see quicker, longer lasting results!

For a Private One-on-one Training Session, Critter Gal will come to you! After discussing you and your dog’s training needs over the phone, we will pick a meeting place that works best for you and Fido. Whether that’s in your own home or outside! Critter Gal is based in British Columbia’s Lower Mainland and currently offers training in Burnaby, Coquitlam, New Westminster, Delta, and Langley!

Critter Gal also offers Puppy Classes and Obedience Classes in Delta, and Langley!

Every dog requires some one-on-one training in order to get the best results. If your critter’s problem behaviour is in some way correlated to other dogs in your household then we will work with those dogs together as well as separately to solve those issues.
