“As someone who works in a dog daycare this was a very valuable experience that gave me some great knowledge and skills which will help me a ton in daycare. If you are wanting to learn more about dogs or are thinking of working with dogs as a career I would definitely recommend this program!” Leandra Martin – Happy Tails Pet Resort and Spa



You will spend 3 full days of 1 on 1 time with Debbi and her team working hands on with client dogs of various breeds and behaviours.

Progress quickly through your ability to adapt to situations, with immediate support to ensure your success.  You will progress quickly in a short amount of time and leave with a strategic step by step plan to implement immediately.

“I absolutely loved every minute of this shadow program. Got to learn all about dog behaviors, dog nutrition, and different training tools. As well as a ton of hands on time to work with different dog breeds and behaviors. The shadow program is great for anyone that is wanting to pursue a career in dog training or for anyone that wants a better understanding of how dogs work. Debbi has so much knowledge and passion for her work and I am so happy I got the chance to learn from her.” Teal Crosson
