Dog Trainer and Personal Coach (pronouns: he/him/his)
Drew Warner is now listed as one of the Top 3 Dog Trainers in Vancouver, BC.
Let’s face it: there’s a dizzying array of products for dogs out there. Sometimes you get what you pay for, but often you don’t. I’ve had years of experience trying different products for my dogs, so I thought I’d share that experience with you. I won’t review these products in detail, but I will post the products I trust to keep my dogs healthy and happy.
LONG LEASH (MINIMUM 15 FEET)
Having a high quality durable leash is a must when you are training your dog. No more soggy wet leashes or rope burn. Biothane leashes are my favorite as they are long durable, waterproof and easy on the hands. Switch to a Biothane leash and have a much better time training your dog on walks and recall. Check out the details here.

Treats on demand: divided treat pocket stays open for treats at your fingertips and snaps tightly shut to hold treats securely. Check out the details here.
ELEVATED DOG COT FOR PLACE TRAINING

BASKERVILLE ULTRA MUZZLE
I love these muzzles as they are made of safe rubber, and your dog can properly eat, drink and breathe in one. For pet parents that have reactive and aggressive dogs, this tool will help prevent a bite from happening which will reduce your stress when interacting out in the world. You will need to check the sizing guide make sure you get the right fit so that your dog can’t pull the muzzle off entirely.
DOGGIE DON’T DEVICE
Stop Barking & Bad Behavior: Stop dogs from barking. Also correct fighting, jumping, biting, nipping, chewing, begging & leash aggression behavior
Loud: Device produces a very loud audible noise (more than 100 decibels) that humans & animals can hear.
Easy to Use Training Tool: Push button & say command. Loud noise redirects dog’s attention to stop unwanted behavior.
Eventually, simply showing the device will get dog’s attention
Includes Rechargeable Battery & Cord
I’ve used this device on multiple occasions to help curb nuisance behaviours like jumping. This can interrupt your dog as the behavior is happening so that you can redirect your dog and show them what to do.
Check out this YouTube video to learn more on how I’ve used it to curb over excitement and jumping with Maple.
Halti Headcollar, Black, Size 3
This head collar can help deter your dog from pulling you down the street. It requires a good protocol to help condition your dog to wear it comfortably. I’ve helped so many clients use this device effectively. Not ALL dogs love these, but when it works it really works! Find out more here.

VAVOPAW PET SLOW FEEDER DOG BOWLS, (4-PACK) SLOW EATING LICKING MAT, SLOW FEEDER DOG TRAY
I use these slow feeders for Slim when I feed him his raw food. You get 4 trays with this purchase which is awesome and such a great bargain.
