Our Approach

You can expect that we will use positive reinforcement training techniques, games and other strategies to gradually improve your dogs behaviour.  

Techniques we don’t use: tools such as electronic vibration, shock, prong, spray, physical corrections or techniques intended to stop or suppress the outward behaviour using discomfort, fear, anxiety or pain.

We will recommend the format of training private, group or virtual, depending on where you are located, and what your dog needs. 

We do not provide guarantees – aside from it being unethical to guarantee the behaviour of another sentient being; outcomes vary by dog, individual guardians, family, environment and many other variables. Check out the Humane training resources at the bottom of this page for more information.

Let’s give your dog a behaviour boost!

We highly recommend Tasha to anyone looking for a dog trainer specialized in separation anxiety and reactivity. When our puppy started to exhibit these behaviours, life became so much harder and we were at a total loss. We could not leave her for even one minute without her being very distressed. Fortunately, we found Tasha. She was always supportive and so understanding of the challenges in those early days. She not only helped us understand our dog’s behaviour, but also connected us with a wonderful community of owners going through the exact same experiences. Although we live several hours away from her, the option of online classes and support through text/email/zoom made the distance disappear. We are able to leave her now for hours at a time and get ours lives back. More importantly, our pup is now a much healthier, calmer and more confident version of her younger self!

“UPDATE: It’s been a few months since we took the Roaring to Relaxed course with Tasha and just recently we have seen an incredible transformation in my dog – the result of sticking with this program- she is calm around other dogs, does a proper nose to tail greeting and is 100% more relaxed – it’s like i have a different dog in the end of the leash i couldn’t be happier or recommend this course more highly (what follows is my review just after we took the course).”

“Tasha is an amazing trainer – we have been working with her for the past 10 weeks to deal with reactivity issues and I feel like I have an extraordinary tool kit now to help my dog. She has been making steady improvement. The course is thorough and Tasha provides continues and varied feedback (in person, over videos, through the online zoom sessions, emails and text). I give this course my highest recommendation — we have been through several trainers and Tasha is the best.”

“We started working with Tasha when our British Bulldog, Miss Mable, was about 5 months old. Within a session we were working on basic commands and addressing pressing issues (potty training!). As COVID lifted and we started to go out more, alone time and separation anxiety also became a concern. With Tasha’s support and her compassionate, methodical systems, it was a straightforward process to ensure she was calm when we left. Mable is now a happy, confident teenager who loves to walk, cuddle and play with respect. We will continue to work with Tasha throughout Mable’s life to ensure ongoing progress and fun. Thank you Fearless Tails!”

We were looking for a trainer that we could work with over multiple sessions to help with our Bernedoodle pup Seba’s adolescent phase. We wanted to focus on leash walking (our pup was pulling the leash A LOT), how to greet visitors (especially since we haven’t had many because of COVID) and recall. The meet & greet with Tasha was super helpful – I immediately felt comfortable that we would be working with her and felt confident that we would make progress on our areas of focus. Tasha provided useful tips and tricks for us to use as a family and was willing to answer questions throughout and adjust the training plan as needed. In addition, working with Tasha over the course of a few months enabled us to see Seba’s progress and prioritize what we wanted to work on for our final sessions. Would highly recommend working with Tasha and Fearless Tails for your training needs!

Serra S. 

Working with Tasha was such a wonderful experience. She is very positive, organized, caring, truly knowledgeable and understands dogs’ behaviours and everything. She taught and provided my family lots of information and techniques which really helped us understand our pup.( From puppy to adolescent phase) We are looking forward to work with her more in the future.
Thank you, Tasha.

Humane Training

Essential to a well-adjusted, happy, & confident dog.

In an unregulated industry such as dog training, it’s important to understand the facts around methodology and the effects on your dog’s physical, mental, and emotional well-being.

Both the Canadian Veterinary Medical Association and American Veterinary Society of Animal Behavior have released statements addressing the benefits of humane training methods, and the unintended fallout of more “traditional” methods.
