Experience, education, dedication. Merit Dog Project brings you evidence-based consent-based training seminars. I am available for schools, shelters, veterinary practices, community events and more. Seminars can be tailored to meet your requirements: co-operative care, behaviour basics, body language, etc.
Training and Behaviour Modification using only current science-based humane training methods. I have years of experience and education to back my certifications with the International Association of Animal Behavior Consultants and the Certification Counsel for Professional Dog Trainers.
I am a current PhD candidate in Human-Animal Studies. My research includes humane training, canine consent, and the dog-human relationship.
I am currently only booking remote (virtual) sessions and will no longer be offering in-home services. I primarily work with dogs who are experiencing fear/anxiety or co-operative care learning. Space is limited so please contact me for availability.
Please refer to APDTNZ Membership Directory or CANZ Accredited Trainers/Behaviour Consultants if you are looking for someone to work with you and your dog in person.
