Our Trainer

Hi, I’m Sarah.

I began my career as a dog trainer at the Edmonton Humane Society leading a variety of group classes and individual training sessions. From my time there, I became a Certified Professional Dog Trainer (CPDT-KA).

I enjoy watching my students gain confidence with their dogs and what I find makes dog training such a rewarding profession. It is my goal to teach students how to better communicate with their dog while having fun in the process.

Meet Sarah’s Dogs

Fury has several trick titles, participates in barn hunt, and passed her herding instinct test. Yes, she can herd sheep!

In 2017 Fury and I started competing in agility. We’ve had a lot of success together in a short amount of time. Fury was the 2018 and 2019 Canadian UKI National Agility Champion in her division. I’m sure we would have added a 2020 placing to the list if 2020 events had not been cancelled.

Epi

Epi and I started competing together in 2018 and is an up and coming agility star. With no agility events happening for 2020 we got to spend more time in her other two favorite sports; disc and herding.

We placed top 3 in all four events at the one 2020 disc event we were able to attend. Epi got to work sheep all summer and we aim to do some stock dog competitions next year.

Our Daycare Attendants

Daycare Manager

Hi, I’m Danica,

I graduated from Olds College in 2015 and have been training animals of all kinds ever since. Horses, lizards, and cockatiels to name a few. My passion for dog training really grew after adopting my first rescue and have I developed a particular love of working with foster dogs deemed to be more difficult to train. I have always found setting animals up for success and happiness in their environment the greatest reward. I look forward to meeting you and your dog!

Daycare Team Lead

Hey, I’m Shaley.

I first started working with animals in 2017 and haven’t wanted to do anything else since. I am certified in pet first aid and have gained a lot of hands on experience in animal shelters and boarding facilities. I am very excited to gain even more knowledge at Canine Addiction and develop new relationships with both you and your furry friends! When I’m not working you can usually find me hanging out at the local dog parks or at the greenhouse (I’m usually the one covered in dog hair carrying too many plants).
