My time at the Ottawa Canine School affected the course of my life. It change how I interact with dogs thereafter, even now as I meet street dogs in Asia!!
My favourite part of the program was learning to observe the details that make a difference when trying to train- timing and small non-verbal cues.
The program opened up my eyes to a lot of theory in dog training. It made me much better with my dog and when helping teammates train their dogs. After I quit the military, I ended up doing private training in Fredericton for just under a year before coming back to Ottawa. Then, I worked at the Ottawa Canine School, doing private and group training. So, it gave me that option of a second career!!
I took the course in preparation of retiring from the Federal Government. I have always loved dogs and wanted to spend my retirement years around as many dogs as possible.
I really enjoyed the course. It was not easy but it was so worth it. It helped me develop into a better dog owner and have a better relationship with my current dogs as well as future dogs.
The program has changed my life by giving me more knowledge about dogs and their behaviours.
