"When Knowledge Ends, Frustration Begins" - Clint Anderson

For our team of professional dog trainers at Metropawlitan Dog Training Inc., the above quote couldn't be more true.   We are believers in training the dog in front of us.  No two dogs train the same, and so to adhere to only one methodology would limit us from effectively helping many dog owners out there.  That's why we're dedicated to our continual learning about a variety of dog training methods and approaches.  We strive to consistently better ourselves as dog trainers so we can help to support you and your dog with the highest quality of instruction and education.


"The heart of human excellence often begins to beat when you discover a pursuit that absorbs you, frees you, challenges you, or gives you a sense of meaning, joy, or passion." - Terry Orlick

Dog Trainer

Kristy joined Metropawlitan Dog Training Inc. in 2023. Having earned a BA in Psychology, and coming from a event horse riding background, Kristy brings with her both practical and formal learning to our team. Her experience in working with horses enables her to use that same gentle feel as a dog trainer when handling and working with our client dogs. As a co-owner of her dog and horse supplement company, Trisana, she also brings with her a wealth of knowledge in canine nutrition that gives her a unique perspective in how nutrition affects behaviour. Kristy is also an accomplished dog trainer, having having started her dog training in Rally Obedience and Agility with her first dog, Archer. Having owned a reactive dog in her past, Kristy also has a keen understanding and compassion for owners who share similar experiences. As a dog trainer, she is better able to empathize her experiences with other reactive dog owners, and provide an environment where students feel safe to learn and free from judgement. Kristy is responsible for working with all the dogs in our Dog Day Training Program. She loves watching the progression of each dog she works with and builidng a bond with each one. Her current competition puppy, Falyn, is being raised the Metropawlitan way. We can't wait for Kristy to inevitably adorn her dog trainer credentials with more awards and accomplishments as she and Falyn hit the competition fields in 2024.
