We’d like to introduce you to our key staff at Companions For Life:

Melanie MacLachlan

She uses positive reinforcement and leadership exercises to help your pup become that beloved family member and well-balanced dog. Your pup is never too young or old to start!

Melanie also specializes in working with dogs with behavioural problems, such as aggression (with other dogs, and/or people), and leadership issues. She also trains dogs for tracking, hunting and to qualify as service dogs.

He has thrived under Melanie’s direction and is well on his way to becoming a highly skilled trainer. Both Melanie and Kyle are schooled in dog psychology, which provides you and your dog with the best recipe for success, no matter the age or breed!
