Lori Mason, Certified Master Dog Trainer
As of January 5, 2019
2018 was action packed with many wonderful classes. Very sadly, there was a huge personal loss of all three of my beloved dogs. Two passed within the same week, and my last boy passed just recently. I've had these beautiful creatures for up to 11 years.
2019 classes will begin in Spring/Summer. Thank you for your patience and please contact me to find out about schedules then.
Lori graduated from Canada West Canine Centre as a Certified Master Dog Trainer. Canada West is the only school to be registered with the Post-Secondary Education Commission in B.C. She works with all breeds teaching all levels of obedience, puppy kindergarten, agility, distraction, behaviour modification and more. She offers both group classes and private lessons, either in your home, at the shop or outdoors.
In the past, Lori was the Volunteer Dog Walking Coordinator at a shelter, teaching the orientation for the dog walking program. This included showing people how to handle and manage dogs on leash for enjoyable walks as well as teaching people how to read basic dog body language. She conducted temperament assessments for the shelter dogs as well as helping the new rescues transition successfully into their new homes.
Lori is the Coordinator of the “Roxy Relief“ program (www.pawsforhope.org). This program feeds homeless peoples pets in the downtown east side. Food, jackets, leashes, collars and vet care are all provided at no cost to people who are unable to support their pets in this manner. She also participates in several community functions that aid in animal welfare.
Lori is continuously updating her skills and knowledge by attending conferences, workshops and seminars, as well as trade shows.
