Owner and head trainer.

Committed to providing the most effective, convenient solutions to her clients’ dog training needs, Tricia avidly pursues ongoing continuing education and professional development by attending several seminars per year and keeping current on industry literature.
Tricia had the honour of working at Calgary Humane Society as an Animal Behaviour Counsellor. There, she worked with hundreds of shelter dogs with varying behaviour needs. She also instructed group puppy and adult dog training classes for the public through the shelter.
Tricia puts clients first. When not helping clients enjoy easier lives with their canine companions, Tricia enjoys time with her family and beloved rescue dog, Baloo.
Tricia will be going on maternity leave in mid-August, 2020.
It is a dog's life too. All too often, people refer to animals as things; therefore, treating them as such. We believe that dogs should be treated as a member of the family. Our goal is to educate people on how dogs learn and communicate, so they can create a stronger trust-based relationship with their dog.
Using marker-based training that is rooted in science, Canine Align will give you the tools and knowledge needed to train your dog while creating a harmonious relationship.
Credentials and experience matter to us. The dog training industry is unregulated and anyone can call themselves a dog trainer. We have committed to the highest level of education in dog training and are constantly continuing our education by staying up to date on training science and industry practices.
