Q&A Dog Training The Humane Way
Now servicing Downtown Vancouver along with the East side & West side. If you are out of catchment and would like to work with me, we can meet in a quiet neighbourhood within my service areas.
Q&A Dog Training's goal is to coach you on how to best train your dog using the latest science & reward based methods. I specialize in reactivity cases & coach you on how to best work around your dogs triggers. Living with a reactive dog can have it's challenges. With a little understanding, team work, training & maybe some extra help from our veterinarian friends, it's possible to manage your dogs behaviour and improve their quality of life.
Working with rescue dogs can be a rewarding and fulfilling experience, but it can also come with its own set of challenges. These dogs have often been through difficult experiences, such as abuse, neglect, or abandonment, and may have behavioural issues as a result. One key to success when working with dogs is to go at their pace and take your time.
I am happy to assist you in helping your dog feel comfortable in their new surroundings. I can provide tips on how to set up their environment and start to make it feel like a safe space for them. Let's work together to make this transition as smooth as possible for the new member of your family.
I'll never guarantee a quick fix in a certain amount of time. Changing behaviours doesn't happen over night but I can guarantee that your voice will be heard & supported. I have your dogs best interest in mind and I'll go at the pace that you & your dog are comfortable with.
Vancouver Dog Trainer 2023
Masina's love for dogs and commitment to using humane training methods, along with her desire to be her own boss, led her to start Q&A Dog Training. Her passion for helping dogs and their guardians has driven her to create a successful business based on positive reinforcement training. Masina's business focuses on helping people understand dog body language and implementing strategies to further enrich their dogs life.
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’d like to acknowledge that I reside, work and play on the traditional, ancestral and unceded territory of the Coast Salish peoples–Sḵwx̱wú7mesh (Squamish), Stó:lō Səl̓ílwətaʔ/Selilwitulh (Tsleil-Waututh) and xwməθkwəy̓əm (Musqueam) Nations.
I am grateful to the Indigenous peoples of Turtle Island who have cared for these lands since time immemorial. I hold my hands up to their amazing resistance, resilience and strength in the
face of ongoing dispossession and colonial violence.
