Q.  My dog has some unique issues. Are all dogs trained the same way?

Q. Do you use treats?

A. No.

DogTalk teaches dogs to listen out of respect and trust, not from treats. Relationships and good behaviour are rewarded with privileges and good feelings only. Treats can be a useful tool but do not contribute to the overall effectiveness of the program.

Q. What is the transportation facility like?

A.   The van is climate controlled and equipped with a continuous potable water supply.

It is BCSPCA approved for the safety of up to 10 dogs. It is an ideal environment for dogs to bond and socialize.
