Steph is the owner of Lucky Dog Positive Training Services in Cranbrook, BC. She enjoys working with people just as much as she enjoys working with dogs, and strives to help pet owners create a long-lasting bond based on trust, communication, and fun! Steph enjoys agility and hopes to compete soon with her min pin X, Garcia.
Steph lives in Cranbrook, BC, with her husband Ian, five dogs, two home cats, and one shop cat. Originally trained as a Licensed Practical Nurse, her interest in behaviour led Steph into the human-service field and to working with adults with development disabilities. For six years she facilitated life-skills groups, assisted individuals with daily living skills, and encouraged individuals to develop independence within the community.
In 2008, Steph felt she needed a change, so she followed her passion for animals. took a leap, and started a holistic pet-food and supply store. Every day she met pet owners concerned about their pets’ behaviour. Wanting to help them, Steph searched for the best and kindest way to train dogs. She came across Karen Pryor’s book Don’t Shoot the Dog—and has been clicker training ever since.
