Allie got her start in the dog training world a decade ago, when her love for the classes she attended with her dog, Rosie, evolved into a career path. Since then, Allie has been assisting with and teaching canine life skills classes, as well as spearheading new programs to meet the evolving needs of pet guardians (such as our extremely popular pandemic puppy socials). In 2018, Allie graduated with distinction from the well-regarded Karen Pryor Academy dog training school and became a Certified Fear Free Professional in 2019. Allie takes a special interest in fearful and reactive dogs and supporting their guardians while they learn how to live together successfully. A self-professed science nerd, Allie is always eager to learn more about behaviour and prides herself on keeping up to date with the newest research and continuing education courses. Allie is passionate about canine welfare, improving the human-animal bond, and compassionate training.
When she isn’t teaching classes or doing private lessons, you can usually find her exploring new trails with her dogs or frequent bakeries across the city.
