Welcome to Evolve Dog Training

We offer private & group dog and puppy training in Vancouver, Burnaby, and the surrounding regions in the Lower Mainland.

The foundation of training should be based on positive reinforcement. Positive reinforcement is the process of giving a dog (or person!) a reward to encourage the behaviour you want, like getting a pay check for going to work. By giving our dogs the opportunity to respond in a positive way to their surroundings will help them tremendously as they begin their journey with us.

As we get busier, our physical world gets denser, we start to ask our dogs for a lot more than they are designed for. The dogs natural world becomes our homes, a city park, or a one hour walk on leash or play at a local park. We expect them to adjust to our lives and live in our world and they do. Some better than others. We put them in our environment, so how can we help them to be the best they can be. 

It helps us to learn how to understand our dogs, and recognize if they are feeling unsure or confident. Using practical skills to build behaviours, I hope to cultivate positive experiences, so your dog grows up to be a well adjusted part of your family.
