my name is Monique. I am a registered therapeutic counsellor, an immigrant, a daughter, a spouse, a sister, a lifetime dog owner, and trainer. My mission is to make a positive difference in the lives of people and their dogs!
Here is why...
Back in 2006, I was having ongoing challenges with my dog's behaviour (her recall sucked, she didn't listen, and she would pee everywhere). I was becoming frustrated and hopeless as she was 6 months old, and still not house trained.
I was at the end of my rope!
What I didn't realize is that my dog's challenges were a direct reflection of a household member, who was suffering in silence with extreme, long-term depression. I wasn't even aware of the challenges they were having, but my dog sure knew and was trying to tell me.
Despite the difficulties, I refused to give up hope. And realized that it was not her fault...
Proper help and action was put into place and I became passionate about dogs and helping people and their well being.
I will work with you, to create a more joyful life and if you are a dog owner, a harmonious life for you both. Your dog can become part of your therapy. I am passionate about people, their culture and dedicated to the well-being of dogs and their owners.
Note: If your dog shows aggression towards people, it is best to consult with James Tsai, a dog behaviourist.
