Owner/operator, trainer, private walks
Hilary is very passionate about science-based, humane training methods and completed a foundations dog training course at CATCH Canine Trainers Academy in 2017, after leaving the Veterinary profession. She has a Certificate in Canine Behaviour, and is currently enrolled in the Dog Trainer Professional program at Karen Pryor Academy; which is one of the most well-respected dog training academies that exist today. She spent some time assisting in group classes in North Vancouver and has a diploma in Veterinary Assisting, as well as four years experience working at a Veterinary Clinic. She spent over a year as one of the directors of a bully breed rescue and is a huge advocate for blocky-headed dogs. She currently has two bullies of her own, whom both suffer from dog reactivity and so she understands the difficulty finding a dog walker that can be trusted with the dogs that need a little extra.
Kate grew up spending time with her grandparents dogs and started dog sitting when she was in high school. She spent years caring for friends dogs until finally getting a dog of her own. She spends her time mountain biking or hiking with her dog, Lenny. Kate is canine first aid certified and currently working on her Karen Pryor Academy Foundations course. She is excited to learn more about canine behaviour and force free training.
