Training Philosophy


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 behaviours you dislike, you will see quicker, longer lasting results!

I believe training is a conversation between the owner and the dog and it’s all about understanding each other and being on the same page. On top of the training I provide for the canines, I assist clients in being able to read their dog’s behaviour more accurately so that they can get on that same page and stay there!
