Your Happy Dog Coach

Your Happy Dog Coach is the only Certified Professional Pet Dog Trainer, Family Dog Mediator, and Fear Free Certified Professional Trainer in the Yarmouth area of Nova Scotia. In addition to my business site, this is also a really great website for resources (just to toot my own horn, here)! Not only does it have personally written, informative articles, but there is a large resource section filled with content ranging from what podcasts to listen to and which YouTube trainers are the ones to follow, to the scientific research and studies that back the methods of training used by Your Happy Dog Coach.

If you are looking:

 to learn more about what your pet dog needs
 to build a strong bond, and a companionship with your dog
 for a relationship with your dog filled with trust and mutual respect

This is the place for you!

Within this website, you will find information about:

  What being Force Free means
  Why reinforcements work better than punishments or corrections
  How it is Science-based training
  Important Education & Resources
  Thoughtful, easy to understand, personally written articles

And you can also Work With Me, One-On-One!

When choosing Your Happy Dog Coach, you get:

  A customized training plan, specifically created for your dog and your family. This is updated at each visit and is yours to keep forever.
  Regular call, email, or text check-ins between visits to ensure everything is going well and answer any questions before the next visit

  Training that is fun! I provide games to play with your dog that will promote your bond and connection while also aiming to reach those goals!

And more!

"10/10! You were professional but also showing your love of animals was great, together with your enthusiasm. Every question or problem we encountered, you had a solution for, even if we just dropped the problem on you while you were here. We enjoyed watching you work with our pup, she responded so well to your methods. Your excellent personality made it easy for her, and us, to learn in a very enjoyable way."
