My name is Daniel Josselyn and I am a Karen Pryor Academy Certified Training Partner and I am also Low Stress Handling Certified by Dr. Sophia Yin’s Cattle Dog Press.  I am the only dog trainer in the GTA with both certifications.  I use scientifically proven methods to help you better understand your dog’s mental and emotional state, and to teach new behaviors while extinguishing undesirable ones.  I also show you how to address behavior related problems in a manner that both you and your dog will find effective, rewarding, and hopefully fun! 

In addition to my education as a dog trainer, I spent several years as a dog groomer and a doggie daycare supervisor.  (See my bio here) With my diverse experience and professional education, I am uniquely qualified to answer any dog care questions you may have.

I offer in home private lessons, (package deals are now availaible!) group classes at Zen Dogs on Church St., (read about our group classes here!: Leash walking workshops at St Luke's United Church on Sherbourne st.,  and staff training for doggie daycares, animal hospitals, and grooming salons:  (Services offered and New Client Questionnaire

We look forward to helping solve any problems you may be having and strengthening your bond with your furry family members!
