CHRIS PAPAKOSTAS, OWNER & CERTIFIED DOG TRAINER
I’ve always loved being around dogs. I’m fascinated by their willingness to learn and to please. Their behaviour can teach us humans much more then we think.
I was involved in an unfortunate incident and was forced to euthanize my dog Wicca. A dog that literally saved my life six months prior. Long story short the whole ordeal helped me decide on taking a new career path. Working with dogs on a professional level. I made it my mission to help others understand why dog training is important to help build a strong relationship, achieve positive results and most importantly properly understanding a dog’s behaviour.
I started my studies with Master Dog Trainer Harry Kalajian from Montreal Dog Trainers Network. Focused on behaviour Harry helped me understand the ethology to develop my skills.
When I started my courses I had Princess a rescue dog that helped me figure out what I needed to focus on. She came to me with a bunch of problems; separation anxiety, fearful, dog/dog aggressive in certain situation, leash reactive, couldn’t crate her, destructive and much more not to mention a high pray drive yes all this in one dog. That was my test, my personal goal at the time how was I going to help this dog. A few months of hard work and lots of learning she became whole new dog. Now she’s training in the field of Narcotics and Mould Detection I also have my “side chick” Momma her son Zeus and my social specialist Jax.
