Positive Reinforcement Dog Training

 Marion Feijoo Waldron-Blain

I am a positive reinforcement dog trainer living in Dartmouth, Nova Scotia. Acting on a lifelong love of animals, I enrolled in the Jollytails Dog Trainer and Behavioural Consultant Apprenticeship Program with Tristan Flynn. After graduating from this program I went on to gain experience in the doggie daycare environment through Jollytails Resort. Moving forward, I'm focusing on teaching classes, private training, volunteering with rescues, and improving the lives of dogs and their humans.
I use positive reinforcement and force free methods to teach skills, modify behavior, and undertake desensitization and counter conditioning protocols. I do not believe that pain or force are appropriate methods to teach a family pet, or any animal. With positive reinforcement training strategies, we can achieve exemplary performance, long lasting results, and improve our relationship with our animals while having a fun and fulfilling bonding experience with our pets.
As a member of the Association of Professional Dog Trainers, I abide by their code of conduct and am always undertaking new opportunities to expand my knowledge and improve my training skills.
I look forward to working with you and your dog!
