'ASK THE TRAINER'
FREE TRAINING FORUM DEVOTED TO YOU & YOUR DOG!
We open this “Ask The Trainer" page free of any charge, for you to ask all of your dog questions! Simply contact us using the form below with your questions for Sylvia and send! Once your question is sent, be sure to check back here often as she usually answers promptly. Her guidance and suggestions to help solve your dog training and behaviour issues will be posted here for your reference and so that others may also benefit from the help. Ask The Trainer today!
Please know that trainers need details, so feel free to describe the many variables that may be contributing to your dog's issues - some, you may not even think are related or you may be de-sensitized to. *Don't forget, there is no silly question, if it is one that you need an answer to! (Chances are other dog owners have the very same issue!)

Dogs are our link to paradise. They don't know evil or jealousy or discontent.
To sit with a dog on a hillside on a glorious afternoon is to be back in Eden,
where doing nothing was not boring -- it was peace.” Milan Kundera
