Let's Turn Your Stress Into Success
Your training session is customized to match needs of you + your dog, followed by homework
so you can continue to work with your dog in between sessions.
My journey to becoming a dog trainer is simple, but it all started with my deep passion for helping people and my love for all dogs.
My ultimate goal is to help you find balance, gain confidence and strengthen the bond between you and your dog.

Prior to your first appointment at FMD Training you must fill out the Covid-19 Screening Questionnaire below. This will allow for peace of mind and due diligence on my part to clear you and your family for everyone’s benefit.
Rest assured that I am continually self screening and if at any time I were to answer YES to any of the screening questions I would immediately reschedule your session. In addition to frequent hand washing and sanitizing, I will be wearing a mask to your sessions so please if possible, start desensitizing your dog to seeing people with masks on so that I won’t frighten your dog.
Please do not hesitate to ask any questions, I want to ensure that everyone feels safe and protected while attending to your training needs.
With the help of our newest pack member Mocha, I am now a certified Canine Massage Therapist!! This is an excellent addition to my current wellness modalities of Reiki and Laser Light Therapy!
I can help your dog behave their best while feeling their best!

The Bruno Project
Saving Dogs - One At A Time
The Bruno Project was founded in 2016, when Vanessa Deline spotted Bruno (pictured below). She was shocked and saddened by how thin and dirty he was. She fed him several times and made her friend, Doris Jolicoeur, who lives in St Lucia, promise to continue to feed him.
In time, Doris and her husband took in Bruno and adopted him. He was treated for mange, tick fever, dehydration, worms, fleas, ticks and malnutrition. Dr Scotland, the veterinarian only gave him a 50% chance of survival.
Bruno now lives a comfortable life, free of the fear, hunger and neglect that were his only companions as a stray dog. He is very loved by Doris & Don as well as by their other dogs, Dude, Axel & Momma.
Changing Their Reality
Both Doris and Vanessa were moved to take action and change the everyday reality of at least some of the strays in St Lucia. They researched the rules and laws governing the importation of dogs to Canada and established a strong network of volunteers. Every animal is medically inspected and meets the exacting criteria of the importing nation.
Since 2016, over 500 dogs have been given new lives in forever homes in Canada, the United States and the United Kingdom.

So, why am I telling you about the Bruno Project? Because I am one of their newest volunteers! I help with home checks in both Durham and Northumberland Regions. In addition, I was blessed to have visited St. Lucia at the end of February with my dear friend Lois and her boys, along with some other amazing new friends that the Potcakes have brought me!
This trip was a perfect combination of Sun, Sand and Relaxation but most importantly, we met the team of amazing volunteers of the Bruno Project and S.L.A.P.S. and helped out where we are able! But wait, the best part?! We brought home 6 dogs, a puppy and a cat! (See below for pictures!)
In honour of this trip, I did a little bit of fundraising and together we raised $765 and I was able to purchase a LOT of flea/tick and heartworm preventative medication!!
Thank you one and all, I'm beyond thrilled with this exciting progression of my business!
