Guest: Ayoka Bubar
Ayoka is passionate about dogs, dog behaviour, and dog training.
She believes that dog training should be fun for dogs and their humans and she likes to employ a number of positive reinforcement techniques to help handlers communicate more effectively with their dogs.
Her formative dog training and behavior experience was during the 7 years she owned Prairie Dog Daycare and was a lead dog training instructor at Two Brown Dogs Canine Consultants for Dr. Renee Will.
She is a Certified Professional Dog Trainer – Knowledge Assessed and an approved Canadian Association of Rally Obedience Judge for all levels and she has never passed up an opportunity to try a new sport with her Rottweilers. Together, they have trained and/or trialed in Flyball, Agility, Tracking, Trick Titling, Herding, Rally Obedience, Mondioring, and Scentwork.
