I have been training and showing dogs since I was 11 years old and
breeding Golden Retrievers since 1995. I've had 3 dogs place in
the top 10 obedience dogs in Canada and completed many obedience and agility
titles on Golden Retrievers and Tibetan Terriers. I compete in CKC hunt
tests with my dogs completing junior, senior and master hunt test titles.
I've been volunteering to instruct all levels of obedience classes from
puppy through to advanced competitive obedience levels for local club's
for as long as I can remember as well as beginner and advanced retriever
classes connected with the Regina Retriever Club.
In 2009 we opened Charmlee Dogworks and boarding became my full time
job. In the current state of the world people are unable to travel thus not
requiring boarding. This has left me with time to focus more on
- Limit of 3 - 4 dogs in for training at one time.
- Your dog will stay with us at Charmlee DogWorks, while I do the
training. I'll provide weekly updates on your dog's progress.
At the completion of the program we'll work with you and your dog together
at the time of pick up to go over the behaviours your dog has learned and
how to maintain and reinforce them.
- Puppy - 3 - 5 months - 4 week program focusing on
basic house manners and socialization including an introduction to loose
leash walking and mat/place training. Socialization will include
things like car rides, seeing different sights and sounds, acting
appropriately in the presence of other dogs (that doesn't mean just
partying/playing) and people. This will give your puppy a great head
start to becoming a well adjusted adult.
- The Basics
- 8 week program focusing on the basic behaviours
necessary for a well behaved pet and companion includes loose leash
walking, sit, down, stay, mat/place training and basic manners both at
home and in public. Owners will need to use/practice and maintain
the behaviours taught when their dog goes home.
- Hunting/Retriever - 3 - 4 months includes
"The Basics" plus skills needed for a personal hunting
dog. Contact me for more details.
NOTE: I'm not a behavourist, I'm a trainer. Although in my close
to 40 years of experience training dogs I have learned a lot about behaviour, I
don't deal with serious behaviour issues such as aggression.

program is suitable for you and your dog.
