Stephanie left a stressful job in the medical field to pursue a Dog Walking business in Oakville back in 2012. She knew it was going to be tough as with any career transition but need to make a move to a happier career and with something she had a strong passion for. Stephanie's love for dogs and the unconditional love they give grew and she knew she wanted to learn to build a better relationship with her own dogs as well as her clients dogs.
Over the years of dog walking Stephanie constantly heard of one trainer, Eric Straetmans, so much that she called him and went to watch some of his classes. Stephanie witnessed remarkable talent in all different breeds, all ages of owners, and at that moment she knew this was what she needed to grow her passion even further and couldn’t wait to start learning from Eric. Stephanie started her apprenticeship in June 2018 and couldn’t be happier.
Steph has been a lead trainer since 2019 and trains 8 groups on average weekly. With her experience there is rarely a problem in group classes she won't have a solution for.
