At Merit Professional Dog Training and Behaviour Consultation, we believe in a positive, science-based method of training that shows respect and kindness toward our canine companions. We are passionate about teaching clients about the human-dog bond, and what we can do as humans to strengthen that bond. Our hands off approach to training allows dogs to trust their humans without the use force and correction, but instead uses motivation and understanding. Whether you need puppy training, basic manners, dog behaviour consultation and modification sessions, or a human-only educational seminar, we are qualified dog trainers and happy to help.
