I started Turner & Pooch Dog Training because I have a love and passion for our canine companions. It all started when I was about 8. I got lost in the woods behind my house, I was scared and didn’t know what to do. Fortunately, I had my dog, Zack with me. Sobbing, I told him to take me home – and he did! I will never forget that day. It was the first time I realized I could influence canine behaviour. Since then, all dogs have had a special place in my heart.

Fast-forward to today, I teach dog owners the best practices to change their dogs’ behaviour; changing their lives by helping them have an even better relationship with their beloved dogs. My techniques assure that the training becomes a lifelong habit and not just a quick fix.

I train owners and their dogs in the Peterborough area (Ontario, Canada), helping owners like you create a calm, happy, balanced pet you will be proud to show off to your friends, family, or even total strangers!

I teach everyday dog owners just like you how to relate to their dogs and see the world through their eyes. When you hire me to help you train your dog, I help you understand the underlying issues to help you solve your dog’s problem behaviour. Big or small, I help them all!

My comprehensive set of private training programs are designed in such a way so that you get the MOST out of training your dog with me. I include all the basic commands in each program. These commands are essential for every dog and owner. In addition to the basics, I will work with you to provide any further commands and behaviours that will make your life with your dog easier and more enjoyable.
