Virtual & In Person Coaching 
Vancouver B.C.

Living with a rescue dog, especially one with Big Feelings, can be incredibly rewarding but also comes with its unique challenges. These dogs often carry behavioural issues from past experiences of abuse, neglect, or abandonment.

At Q&A Dog Training, we specialize in working with Big Dogs with Big Feelings and recently rescued dogs. Using the latest science and reward-based methods, we’ll help you navigate your dog’s emotions and triggers. We’ll coach you on how to make your dog comfortable in their new surroundings and set up an environment where they feel safe and secure.

Behaviour change takes time, but what we can guarantee is you'll be heard and supported every step of the way. We prioritize your dog's best interest and will work at a pace comfortable for both of you.

With understanding, teamwork, and training—and some help from our veterinarian friends—we can manage your dog's behaviour and improve their quality of life. At Q&A, we take a holistic approach to training, considering all aspects of your dog's life. Whether you’ve been facing challenges for a while or just rescued your new pup, we’re here to help you find the best solutions for you and your dog to live your best lives.

"Working with Masina over our sessions we got was so rewarding and interesting for both myself and my dog Pinot. She explained everything so well and the progress we made in only three sessions has been incredible. She has given us great confidence in our journey together & I cannot thank her enough!"

"I've got a rescue dog with some anxiety issues and from the first meeting my pup listened to all of Masina's cues and i had full confidence in her straight away. I've never had such helpful advice with any other trainer even down to homemade puzzles to keep him entertained! I would recommend Masina for any doggo needs! My Rocco was so happy after our sessions, he can't wait to see her again."
