I'm with or will be once I'm finished my supervised visits Therapeutic Paws of Canada. I went to beginner intermediate and advanced dog training dog training with Betty Jo and also got her CGN. They are mainly looking for well behaved well socialized dogs. It is more a temperament test then a obedience test.
However if you are looking for an amazing trainer I highly recommend The Dog Nanny The Dog Nanny
She is located about an hour N of Toronto. She holds Certifications from several recognized associations to back and qualify her extensive knowledge on dog training and canine behaviour.
Marcia is also a current professional member of the following organizations:
Canadian Association of Professional Dog Trainers
Animal Behavior College Inc.(Authorised Mentor Trainer)
The Canadian Kennel Club (Certified C.G.C. Evaluator)
Therapeutic Paws of Canada (Director of Evaluators)
The Pet Professional Guild
The International Positive Dog Trainers Association
Marcia is also on the panel of experts for 3 web based groups:
Happy Dog Connections
Marcia is also a consultant on Canine Behaviour for the Town of Innisfil's Off-Leash Dog Park project and an Expert Speaker at the 2012 Ontario Dog Expo.
She is the one that I have taken my girls to for training (Betty Jo, Jenny and Cayenne) and I really enjoy her. She is lots of fun and has done almost everything with her dogs over the years. Currently Cayenne is taking Rally O classes with her.
Since she is the Therapeutic Paws of Canada (Director of Evaluators) I imagine that she is one of the most qualified trainer around for what is necessary to become a therapy dog.
