Julie is one of a select group of trainers in Ontario to have earned the Certified Pet Dog Trainer (CPDT) designation through the Certification Council for Pet Dog Trainers (CCPDT). This designation helps people select a professional who has the knowledge and expertise to make your investment in dog training safe, effective, and enjoyable.

As a dog walker by day, Julie sharpens her training skills when she is out with the pack. She is passionate about canine learning and behaviour and committed to bringing out the best in every dog she works with.

Both her dogs have titles in Rally Obedience and Freestyle. She credits her training success to the puggle that stole her heart and taught her about training along the way.
