Hello! My name is Sue Rennick and I'm CRAZY about dogs! I've spent most of my professional career in the teaching and educational field and decided over a decade ago to take my knowledge and expertise and apply it to my life-long passion of working with dogs. I always had dogs growing up and enjoyed them so I always knew I would get a dog of my own the minute I could when out on my own. Living in Toronto as a young adult I went directly to the Toronto Humane Society where I fell in love with my first rescue. Kelsie was quite a special little doggie, having been found roaming the streets of Toronto fending for herself. I adopted her, brought her home and had my first experience working with a dog that had behavioural issues. She weighed 10 lbs. with all her ribs sticking out and was so withdrawn from humans it took her weeks before she even acknowledged I was in the same room as she was. I promised her that I would not give up on her. She inspired me to learn everything I could related to dog behaviour and training. After many weeks of obedience training and trust and confidence building she grew into the most loving, sweet little girl I could ever ask for. This brought me so much joy I went on to welcome two more rescued dogs into my pack. My family has been a part of the Oakville/Burlington community since 2001 and I'm looking forward to meeting you and your dog. I am committed to showing you how to use force-free, simple training techniques to effectively communicate with your dog and create a mutual love, understanding and respect for each other. I only use positive reinforcement techniques that are backed by the most up-to-date scientifically proven methods.
I have over 15 years of professional experience working with dogs of many different sizes and breeds including new puppies, rescue/adopted dogs and older dogs.
My area of focus has been on positive reinforcement trainingtechniques, basic and advanced cues, attention skills (with distractions), behaviour modification and developing a better understanding of dog behaviour.
I have been involved with many non-profit organizations that care about the welfare of animals.
My experience also includes dog walking, working at dog daycare centers and several Humane Societies where I had the opportunity to create a trusting bond with many dogs. I thoroughly enjoyed meeting the needs of the various dog breeds and managing the various temperaments of these dogs on a daily basis. It was a pleasure to give them the care, attention and exercise they needed while in my care.
I've studied and successfully completed several animal behaviour programs and I've worked with several profession dog trainers before establish my own dog training business.
I'm also currently the area dog trainer for Oakville and surrounding areas for the non-profit organizationGOLDEN RESCUE.
I have been formally trained to recognize the needs of individual dogs and set an action plan in motion to teach and communicate with them in a gentle and effective way.
Successful completion of many in-depth animal behaviour training programs and courses that focused on different learning techniques and the use of the most humane, science-based practices.
