Your dog is practically perfect right?

Except for those few little things that are driving you crazy! You love to brag to your friends how much you love him, and feel guilty when you get annoyed when he won’t listen to you.

In private conversations with other dog owners, you confess he can be quite a handful and unpredictable around exciting things like greeting other dogs, walking in his neighborhood on leash, greeting people in his home, and even sometimes around his favorite toys or food bowl.

The good news is that your dog can transform into the perfect dog you’ve always wanted.

We’ve helped so many dogs just like yours!

Our programs work because we mentor good dog owners like you who are committed, ready to change and follow through.

Check out our training & coaching programs to see how you can start enjoying your dog again!

Client Testimonials

Drew helped us with our German shepherd puppy Sargent ! He was such a menace until drew stepped in and showed us the proper way our dog should be going through thresholds and walking on a leash . We got the dream dog package and it was definitely worth every dollar . He set us up with new leashes , correction leash , prong collar , a long leash and a place board and we were able to text and email Drew when we needed more time to practice our training. It was nice to have someone with such flexible hours to accommodate our busy schedule too. In the end we weren’t able to finish our last 2 sessions but Drew says we can text or email anytime if we needed a refresher!

We've always had large dogs. After three fairly calm Rotties we adopted Ribbon, a very rambunctious five month old American Staffordshire Terrier six years ago. A delightful, friendly dog, she overwhelmed visitors to our home with her over-the-top greeting ritual. She also was not easy to take on a leash walk and could be highly reactive toward other dogs while on leash. The primary tool Drew taught us to use was the place board to help control Ribbon’s impulsivity. During the course of the training, we learned the principles of how the place board became Ribbon’s marker to help redirect her excited energy toward a calmer, obedient energy. The concept seemed simple, and at first we were skeptical Ribbon would ever stay in one place when overly excited, but were so pleased when we made it work with and for her. Drew also trained us on the correct way to use a prong collar to have more control over Ribbon on walks. In addition, he generously gave us a multitude of other small tips and skills that greatly benefitted both dog and human kind. At the end of every session he emailed a summary of our time together, information sheets for us to read, and a multitude of pictures and videos from our training session that we could watch to learn and improve. After sharing our lives with many dogs over the years and hiring several trainers to help us with a variety of behaviourial issues, we truly appreciated and enjoyed Drew's approach. We now possess valuable, practical skills and methods to calm Ribbon’s impulsiveness and high energy. Drew is an extremely knowledgeable and talented dog trainer. His professional, patient and caring approach has made an incredible difference in Ribbon's life, and gratefully, in ours too. Thanks Drew. We love being part of your pack!

I highly recommend working with Drew if you have any problems with your dogs. We called Drew in to help us with our eighteen month old Springer Spaniel, who was bossing us and our older springer about. Drew taught us useful techniques for helping us regain our status in the pack - yay! The use of the command 'place!' has been extremely helpful for Smudge at the door, the dinner table and while waiting for her food. She likes to go to her place to get our positive attention so this has been a game-changer for us. Drew was very patient with us and I liked having the video clips that he took during our classes and then sent to us to remind us of what we needed to work on. The best part was discovering that my dog is so keen to work and to please us, where previously her behaviour was exasperating. Thanks Drew!

First time dog owner over here! I did not know what to expect when I got a puppy but i HIGHLY recommend doing some research on the breed and HIGHLY recommend getting a trainer...DREW! I have a french bulldog/boston terrier, named marley; he will be turning 2 in Nov 2018. When i first saw Drew, i admit i was intimidated and realized i was doing a lot of things wrong but Drew gave me the confidence and tools to become a pack leader 🙂 The great thing about Drew is that he holds you accountable and so make sure you do the homework! its important to be held accountable especially if you want to see progress! Once i started putting in the work, It was amazing how quickly i started to see change and progress. We still have a long ways to go but i am much more confident with the tools/training i have to be the leader marley needs! Lastly, there were times i was SUPER frustrated. I felt like i was making GREAT progress than steps back but Drew was always SUPER encouraging and his love for animals shows in how he treats his human clients and fur clients. Thank you so much Drew!!

As first time dog owners, we were struggling with training our lab-pit mix. She is a very high energy dog and we tried lots of different methods before finding Canine Solutions. Drew was able to teach us how to build a stronger connection with our dog, allowing us to have control of her in situations when she previously would get too excited, distracted, or bored. We have come out of the training much more confident with both our dog and ourselves. Thank you, Drew!

I cannot believe the transformation in my dog, and in my own understanding of how to handle her, as a result of Drew's influence in our lives. I have a fear aggressive pitbull cross. At about a year old, she was traumatized and started barking, lunging, and gnashing at all people and dogs she encountered. The result was that our life became very small - restricted to tense walks and just trying to manage her anxious behaviour at home. It was hard to take her out, and it was hard to have people over. It was also terrifying, and I felt totally powerless and demoralized. I didn't know what to do, and I was scared for her, for others, and for myself. I saw two other trainers in Vancouver with good ideas but minimal lasting results, and finally, after a year of struggling with my dog's behaviour and making very little headway, I desperately googled "dog whisperer Vancouver" and found Drew! I could not be happier with our training. I am five sessions into our nine session package, and my dog is transforming before my eyes. We've made considerable changes to her diet, habits, and training routines, and the results are staggering in their effectiveness. She still has her anxious moments now and again, but she is behaving like a completely different dog. She is more confident and happy, she loves training, and we're building trust every day. When I think back now to how I lived with my dog before Drew, I can't believe I endured the stress for so long. It is incredibly empowering to feel more confident and in control, and it's honestly making my life better in general. Drew's services are totally worth what he asks, the dream dog package is a great deal. He is always on the ball during training, has great follow-up protocol and homework for us, always responds to my texts as issues come up, and works hard to ensure that I am learning about how dogs think and learn to make my time training alone as effective as possible. All around an excellent experience and an excellent trainer. I recommend him to EVERYONE.

Drew has been amazing with our pug Daisy!! She had separation anxiety and Drew showed us so many different ways to help her get better. Our mind was blown with the difference we saw in our dog after a short amount of time. And seeing your dog become so confident after becoming successful at their training is wonderful. Drew is firm but very loving with dogs and really goes above and beyond!

Drew is absolutely amazing. His teaching style is positive, effective, and works for the specific considerations of your dog and their issues. Our dog has had leash aggression for years, wouldn't listen to us, and some separation anxiety to boot. Just a few sessions in, we saw tremendous improvement and it continues every week. We're truly lucky to have Drew helping us out.

My husband and I hired Drew to help with us with our rescue boxer/staffy mix Bruce. We had a not so great experience with another dog trainer but decided to have a consultation with Drew after my cousin highly recommend him. We set up our assessment appointment not really sure what to expect but right from the get-go Drew was nothing but amazing! Our main things we wanted to work on was Bruce’s pulling on leash and his aggression towards the door. Drew went through all the different packages we could purchase and was also very open to customizing anything we wanted. There was no pressure and it was all really left everything up to us. Once we chose our package Drew came up with a plan and every lesson was better then the next! Drew would show us different ways of connecting with our dogs and skills to keep building on top of the skills we learned the week before. Drew made it simple, understandable and very stress free. Since the lessons are done in your own home, you can learn and practice in a real setting and see how things will work on a day to day basis. At the beginning of each lesson Drew would go through how the week had been since we last met, what were some challenges we were having and what we wanted to focus on for this lesson. Then at the end of each lesson he would go through our take-a-ways and come up with a plan for the next week’s “Homework”. We would work on everything Drew taught us and we immediately starting seeing changes in Bruce. Bruce is now calmer, more responsive and listens to us even in distracted settings. Bruce went from being the dog that would pull so hard on the leash it would hurt your back to now being right beside you the whole time, walking your pace with no pulling! If you’re looking for a dog trainer for something small or a bigger issue we cannot recommend Drew enough! The whole experience was so wonderful from start to finish and we were so sad when our time came to an end. Thank you Drew for all your work with us we really appreciate everything you’ve done for us!

We were at our wits end with our rambunctious pup and ready to send him back. Drew was able to help us channel our time and energy into training Charlie into the family dog we needed him to be and he is so much happier. Drew is creative, humourous, and endlessly patient with our glitches and has restored calm and helped us enjoy our dog! And the bonus is that he is so much calmer and happier!

I cannot say enough good things about Drew, and the good results we have gotten for our 5 year old dog Emma. Our dog was extremely excitable at the door (friendly but full of energy), would jump all over people, and would sometimes escape out of the house. Drew taught us how to keep our dog on her special place board so I can answer the door without problems, all within a few short sessions. I couldn't believe it! Emma will now stay on the board when people come over, it is a miracle! Drew will travel to your home which we found ideal. We have a toddler and new baby and Drew was able to work with us even with the kids present. Drew showed so much patience (for us and the dog) and so much skill. You can really tell this is their passion. I'm so happy with the results and would recommend Drew to anyone who needs help.

Drew is an incredible dog and human trainer. They improved the relationships of everyone in the household! In our first session with Drew, we learned what we were miscommunicating to our reactive young rescue dog and our surprisingly defiant old rescue. As soon as we understood this, we were ready to effectively implement Drew's training program. The way Drew tailored the program to our dogs and family and the particular problems were were having (barking at the door, reactivity with humans and dogs when on leash, begging for food from baby), was enormously helpful. We feel fortunate to have met Drew and will be taking their canine solutions forward! The lessons were worth every penny.

Drew is Amazing! They went above and beyond teaching us how to best communicate with our dog and begin a great life-long relationship. We were amazed how detailed Drew was with looking at all the details of our life so that we could receive the best possible outcome from our sessions - all aspects of our family and our newest doggy member were taken into consideration so that our lessons were as personalized as possible - meeting all of our needs. Highly Recommended!
