I started group lessons with my Sharpei puppy Harvey under Lindsay's guidance, and she’s been amazing, supporting me every step of the way. She is very transparent, providing clarity to help me understand my dogs needs, and how to build my relationship and bond with Harvey in the best way possible. She is relatable, positive and kind and yet has a way of telling me what I need to hear with a firmness and confidence that pushes me to progress.
Lindsay has this gift of being able to see both parties, myself and Harvey, and reflect both perspectives to enhance the bond between us. She has great feel with both dogs AND people. She tells me what’s going on for Harvey in a way that I get it, and then the next time the behaviour emerges I can see it directly. It has taught me how to speak his language which has been monumental.
Lindsay has a vast sense of awareness and ability to maintain presence and control when working with multiple dogs and people. Her leadership is gentle and powerful, calm and responsive. She tailors her approach to the person (and more importantly, the dog) in front of her.
She fosters relationships by teaching buildable tools that are co-created with the dog and owner she is working with.
She’s in control in a way that isn’t intimidating, and I feel safe to let her lead and teach me and my dog. I highly recommend her as a trainer for someone who is looking to learn how to deepen both your relationship with your dog and also with yourself! It has been such a rewarding experience.

Lindsay worked with our boxer and the results have been one word: AMAZING. Her training isn’t just of the dog but also of the owners. She helped my family and I better understand our relationship with our dog Bella, and this has enabled us to grow as dog owners and find so much more joy in our time with our pet. Lindsay took the time to explain the why and not just the how, and this has given us more empowerment to continue to grow with our dog.
After a week of Lindsay working with Bella, she had created a new foundation of behaviour for her. Bella is 5 years old and Lindsay's training process truly created a new baseline, one which she educated our family on so that we can maintain and grow that new behavioral baseline ourselves.
Lindsay’s training is committed to creating a safe, consistent and fun environment where there are no “dumb” questions only thoughtful conversation and education in a space of positivity.
Lindsay is committed to you and your pet living your best life together, and I highly recommend you get her involved with your family and pet’s development.
I brought my 6 month old black lab pup to Lindsay for a 4 day boarding adventure. I could unfortunately not bring him with me on my trip. I was absolutely over the top pleased with the care my dog Mogli received while I was away. I usually would worry if my dog was with someone else as I love and spoil my dogs dearly. With Lindsay, I truly could put my mind at ease knowing my boy was going to be in great hands!
The combination of Lindsay’s caring nature, intelligence in the dog boarding/training world, and the help of her two beautiful puppies, I received photo and video updates, AND my dog came back better behaved than I left him. He knew a new command and was far FAR more obedient in his other commands. She also provided new training tools and trained Mogli on them before I returned so I could have a smooth transition. It was shocking to say the least, how well my dog was cared for and returned.
I 1000% recommend Lindsay’s boarding services with complete confidence. I look forward to the next time Mogli gets to spend time with her and her doggy family. Thank you Lindsay - you have a gift!

We were so fortunate to have Lindsay's support with our dog, Dante. After working from home for nearly 2 years during COVID Dante experienced severe separation anxiety when we went back to the office. Lindsay worked remotely with us (we live in Calgary) to help us understand Dante's behaviour and the impact of our interactions on the situation. She gave us simple, tangible tools to help ease our family through this difficult transition. Her explanations and instructions were clear and she answered any questions we had with clarity and knowledge. Our overall experience was amazing and we are so happy to say that Dante has overcome his separation anxiety and is doing fantastic! Thank you Lindsay for your support, our family is so grateful for your knowledge and compassion as we navigated this challenge!
