Puppy Training

Puppies are delightful, cute, funny and highly entertaining. Unfortunately, they do not come with an owner’s manual. We are changing all of that.

About Angel Rowe - PCT-A, DN-CET, SA-PRO

DogSmith of Starland

Hi, my name is Angel, your local DogSmith here in Starland County, Alberta, where I live with my two dogs on small acreage.

My dog training journey began over a decade ago when I started assisting another pet professional with pet dog group classes.  I was hooked.  Since then I have invested heavily in my education and training, earning many certifications along the way, and gaining the necessary experience so I am fully equipped to provide you with the absolute best, most scientifically based training for your pet dogs.

Personally, I get so much enjoyment and satisfaction working with families like yours in private training sessions and, in particular, on virtual sessions where you and your pet can relax at home, in a safe, comfortable environment, as you and your pet gain new skills and knowledge.  The courses and programs I have available for you are individually, and specifically, designed to support you and your goals. So, whether you have a puppy or an older dog who struggles being home alone or some other issue, I am just a call, text or email away.

Dog training is not just about helping your pet dog develop the lovely pet manners that make your life a joy.  It’s also about managing their environment to ensure your entire family’s success.  I will help you create an environment where you and your pets will enjoy the training process as much as I do.

As I am sure you know all too well, each dog is different.  They are a study of one and I can help you and your pet reach your particular goals on your timeline.  Let’s work together and watch your dog(s) grow and develop so they can be the best pet dog you can imagine! An investment in your dog’s training and socialization now pays back a lifetime of happiness dividends.

When I am not working with you and your pet dog on your training goals I am with my own dogs. We enjoy dog sports and being out in the community. If you see us out and about please stop and say hello.  And if you have any pet issues call me now and let’s talk.

My promise to you

As a DogSmith professional, I pledge to use my knowledge and skills for the benefit of pet owners and their pets.

I will practice my profession conscientiously with dignity, and in keeping with the principles of The DogSmith ethics, mission, vision and values.

I accept as a lifelong obligation, the continual improvement of my professional knowledge and competence.
