I  am extremely passionate about scientifically recommended force and non-fear inducing training methodologies. As a result, I have founded the Alberta Force Free Alliance in order to provide a one-stop resource for dog owners looking for force free handling of their dogs in all areas of their lives, be it training, veterinary services, daycare, grooming, etc. Please check us out at


The models for my approaches are founded in science. Please visit the American Veterinary Society of Animal Behavior’s position statements for scientifically researched and documented recommendations.


I firmly believe that our dogs’ care, from home to veterinary care to training, must be protective of both the dog’s physical and emotional well being. For a listing of local Fear Free Certified professionals as well as great resources for pet owners, please visit


Helping families with dogs nurture safe, happy relationships among all family members, human and canine.
