I set up Street Wise Canine in 2009 to offer the people and dogs of Ottawa a new method of training. Street Wise Canine is a fully insured business, and I also regularly consult with expert trainers all over the world to make sure that my methods are 100% up to date and correct. I take your dog’s physical and mental health and well being as seriously as humanly possible!
Street Wise Canine believes that owning a dog is an amazing and rewarding experience, but also a responsibility, not a luxury. Training your dog properly will lead you to a greater understanding of the dog, and I firmly believe in the owner dog relationship being one of mutual understanding and respect. I immerse you fully in the training process, and with this unique individualized approach, I find that owners end up learning as much, if not more, than their dogs.. Get in touch to find out more about my unique approach to training.
The best dog training & boarding team in Ottawa
Cher has spent her entire life surrounded by dogs. At the age of 9 she started her first job of walking 6 large breed dogs every day after school and she never looked back. Cher spends all of her free time attending seminars, workshops and learning as much as she can on canine behaviour. When she is not expanding her knowledge she is hanging out at home with her pack. Cher specializes in boarding and the Stay and Learn programs.
Monika grew up with dogs and learned from an early age that each dog is unique and has different ways of learning. This was brought to light even more when she started working with rescue dogs for the better part of 10 years, fostering, training, working with foster homes and adopters all confirmed the great need for trainers to help people work with their dogs and create a happy, harmonious and balanced relationship. Every dog deserves to live in a healthy state of mind each and everyday! Monika specializes in one on one training due to her amazing understanding of dogs and her client relationship skills.
Alyson has an intense love of animals and has lived with dogs since childhood.
Having trained horses from a young age, she has transferred that knowledge towards a calm methodical manner for handling dogs.
She loves figuring out what makes each dog balanced and happy and has a special fondness for working dogs.
She volunteers (and trains) with the local French Ring club, practices trick training on her own and has taken scent detection courses in the past.
She has an ability to bond very quickly with any animal and has never met a dog she didn't like to work with.
She currently owns two (very special) dogs and frequently fosters for local rescues.
Diane and her husband both have an immense love for dogs. They are owned by a 5 year old chihuahua whom they recently adopted from a local rescue. Diane and her husband offer one on one boarding in their downtown home in Ottawa. They only board the little dogs for us at the moment. If your little needs someone home 24/7 and more one on one attention, Diane and her husband are exactly what you're looking for.
SATISFIED OWNERS. HAPPIER DOGS.
