About Shar

The acronym, CTB.ccs, CCAT represents my certifications and my school. I am a certified Canine Training & Behaviour professional. I earned my diplomas and certification through Canine Correspondence Studies, Waterloo, Ontario, along with my diploma in Comprehensive Canine Aggression Therapy. My full list of recognized certifications are:

  • DIPLOMA: Professional Pet Dog Training
  • DIPLOMA: Canine Behaviour Therapy
  • DIPLOMA: Comprehensive Canine Aggression Therapy
  • Certificate: Trick Training
  • Certificate of Certification: Professional Pet Dog Training, Behaviour & Aggression Therapy
  • Canine First Aid Certified

Furthermore, I continuously further my education and keep updated with dog behaviours and training methods by reading books and research papers; designing programs; attending seminars and educational workshops. For example, I attended the one day seminar by Cesar Millan in Calgary, Alberta; a 3-day conference in Toronto, Ontario by Dr. Ian Dunbar; Learning Labs & Training Sessions by Karen Pryor Academy, in Portland Oregon; a 3 day seminar and audit by Suzanne Clothier; The Art & Science of Animal Behaviour with Sophia Yin in Edmonton, Alberta; a symposium and lab at the University of Calgary, Faculty of Veterinarian Medicine; a two-day workshop earning another Trick Training Certification from "Do More With Your Dog Association" presented by Kyra Sundance; as well as frequent webinars and workshops presented by positive professionals.

Our "Dogs With Wings" puppy is all grown up now. MADISON has now produced 3 lively and healthy litters of new "Dogs With Wings" candidates. We are honoured to have worked and trained MADISON; and, wish her all the best in her new endeavours at Dogs With Wings.
