My name is Dawn Piche. In 1989 while serving in the Canadian Armed Forces, I started my training company, K9 Kindergarten. After leaving the military in 1997, I moved back home to Winnipeg and established Canada's Canine Academy.
Operating solely on a referral basis, the company flourished, showing a demand for a qualified Behaviour Specialist. As a result of the demand, the company went public.
I became the only recognized Certified Pet Dog Trainer (CPDT) in Manitoba in 2004. This certification is recognized around the world by the Certification Council out of New York (CCPDT).
I am pleased to announce that I am now working in partnership with Lisa Forde. Lisa started with me as a client in 2008 and as staff in 2009, she very quickly demonstrated an understanding and passion for working with dogs and their human companions. She is also currently working towards her CCPDT certification.
I am a member of the Association of Pet Dog Trainers (APDT). As well, I hold a BA from the University Of Winnipeg. Go Wesmen!!!!
