Why do you want an expert who specializes in canine psychology and not just a trainer? Lasting impactful change. Most specialists in Abbotsford subscribe to one of the two basic methods of dog training — Positive Reinforcement or The Force Approach. Both can be effective in teaching basic tricks but rarely make a lasting impact when it comes to behavioural issues.

When it comes to dog training, a true expert will understand that lasting change in a dog’s behaviour happens through repetition. At The Great Canadian Dog Academy, we take pride in having a distinctly different skill set then others providing dog training in Abbotsford — and our results prove it.

Over the last 14 years we have helped to rehabilitate over 4800 dogs. All dogs were 80-90% improved in 2-4 days.


In Abbotsford, it is normal for traditional dog trainers to teach owners to deal with a dogs behavioural issues with Human Psychology, but in order to create lasting impactful change in a dog’s behaviour a trainer must be an expert in Dog Psychology, Theory and Language. 

Dog Psychology & Modification Expert Dog Training In Abbotsford


After taking one of our workshops, owners will have a complete understanding of why their dog is expressing negative behaviours, strategies on how to resolve them, and most importantly the strategies on how to prevent the negative behaviours in the future.

A way to identify if a Dog Trainer is relying on human psychology instead of tapping into a dog’s psychology is around the learning that happens before training begins. A true canine behavior expert will have you do up to 8 hours of theory covering a dog’s psychology and body language before you begin working with your dog.

Graduates of The Great Canadian Dog Academy leave with more knowledge of dog psychology & behavior modification than the average Abbotsford Dog Trainer themselves. You will leave with the skills you need to adopt effective communication and foster a successful relationship with your dog based on the solid foundation of mutual trust and respect.
