Heidi Doucet is a supporting member of IAABC working her way towards a Certified Professional Dog Trainer certificate. She has worked with hundreds of dogs through her 13 years of dog walking, sitting, and now training. She has also helped many rescue dogs over the last few years as a foster mom. Through her hands on work and the knowledge acquired through extensive research, reading, attending seminars and conferences, taking courses and workshops, and working with other trainers, she has the skills to help clients through common behavioural issues.
This is not your traditional dog training. We don't do group training or have a brick-and-mortar location. All initial consultations take place privately in your home. Follow up sessions can take place either in your home, neighbourhood, or in higher distraction areas such as parks, downtown, near dog parks etc. Places where you and your dog frequent in real life! We only use science-backed aversion free, reward and relationship based training techniques.
Private training starts with a questionnaire about your dog's history, any issues you're experiencing, and your training goals. We then set up a time to do a behavioural assessment and start training right away! We'll talk about our training methods, body language, how dog's learn, and why we do certain things. We may offer demonstrations, hands on practice, and management information for immediate help, and we'll create a training plan and assess how long it may take to achieve your goals. The first session will take about an hour and a half and is followed up with a detailed email and an individualized training plan. On-going email support is included when needed.
After the first session, follow up sessions of approximately 45 minutes to an hour are available, usually on a weekly schedule, to continue to work on behaviour modifications, to practice skills learned, and to work with higher distractions.
