Jamie is the owner and head trainer at Candor Canine Co.
She has been operating CNDR since 2017 which started out as an in-home boarding and walk business, but quickly turned into the training business that it is today after she adopted her dog Carter. Carter came to them when he was over one year old and had deep-seated fear toward people, dogs, and handling.
He is the spark that lit the fire for her passion in canine behaviour.
Jamie has experience working in vet clinics, shelter environments, and canine hydrotherapy, in addition to her three years in canine behaviour coaching, and also works at Winnipeg Humane Society as a behaviour counsellor on a casual basis.
She has completed certificates in Canine Reactivity, Canine Fear, is St. John's Pet First Aid Certified, Karen Pryor Academy Dog Trainer Comprehensive Program and holds her CPDT-KA certification.
She does private training and group classes/workshops for all your canine training needs, but her real passion lays with helping owners who have dogs with reactivity and aggression.
CNDR focuses on helping owners learn to better understand their fearful dogs, build confidence and trust, and create new and fun experiences with their dogs using patient, force free, and rewards based training practices.
Jamie will be writing her CBCC-KA exam in the fall.
Ben has been involved in the pet welfare and behaviour training community in Winnipeg for almost 10 years.
His family dog Sadie was adopted in early 2012 from the Winnipeg Humane Society. The humane society behaviour department knew (and still remembers!) Sadie, as she had shown aggressive-reactive behaviour towards other dogs and some strangers while at the shelter.
Through lots of patience, understanding, and hard work, Sadie now enjoys the odd “playdate” and warms up to strangers quickly!
Ben began his journey by working a summer job at a dog day-care in the city while taking Psychology at the University of Manitoba.
While continuing his education in the fall, Ben also began to gain practical work experience in other areas of the pet and animal industry, including: Veterinary clinic, animal shelter, pet boarding facility, pet food store, in-home pet care, and training classes.
Ben worked for the Winnipeg Humane Society as a Behaviour Counsellor and as the Behaviour Programs Coordinator throughout 2019. He has recently returned to WHS as a behaviour Counsellor on a casual basis!
Ben is CPDT-KA (Certified Professional Dog Trainer) and St. John’s Pet first aid certified. He is also in the process of completing his CBCC-KA (Certified Behaviour Consultant Canine).
