Puppy training, dog training, & dog walking services for dog-loving Kelowna seniors

Like so many phases of life, the companionship of a dog enhances the senior years. In many ways, it’s the best time to have a dog. Without the pressures of job and career and a house full of kids there’s more time to enjoy four-legged company.

But this time comes with it’s own challenges, too. Life is still busy—full of grandchildren, friends, golf, and hobbies. High-energy dogs can pose a fall threat by jumping up for attention or pulling too hard on leash. They can also be too hyper with the grandkids, frightening or hurting them despite good intentions. And sometimes health and mobility issues can make it challenging to work with a dog to bring her under control.

Our dog walking and training services are designed specifically for dogs living with seniors.

We specialize in training calm, responsive dogs who don’t jump, don’t pull on leash, and know how to interact appropriately with the grandkids.

And if it’s helpful, we’ll even train and walk your puppy or dog for you.

Meet your training & walking guide, Jan Dawson

Hello, I’m Jan! I know both the joys and the frustrations of living with a dog, particularly one that just seems harder, more hyper, less responsive than dogs you’ve had in the past. As a professional dog trainer and certified dog walker, I see my job as narrowing the gap between your vision for your dog and his or her current reality. My goal is to help you enjoy the very best companionship from your dog, and put any concerns you have to rest.
