Penny, Dog Trainer in Nelson BC

"Dogs are not our whole life, but they make our lives whole." - Roger Caras

Dogs are always looking to please you and naturally want to obey. When you give them tools of obedience through dog training, they give back ten-fold to you.

Penny Korethoski offers one-on-one dog training, group classes and pet first aid workshops, including puppy training, behavioural issues and concerns about problem dogs. Through P.E.T.S Dog Training in Nelson BC, Penny can help create a better-behaved and balanced pet who will add enjoyment to your life. P.E.T.S. philosophy is “Mind over Manners”.

"Obedience is the key fundamental in any dog's life"

I have has been an Animal Technologist since 1999. I have worked at the Nelson Animal Hospital since 2003. In the summer of 2007, I expanded my knowledge of animals by becoming an accredited Dog Trainer through the Animal Behaviour College and became a certified Pet First Aid instructor through the Walks N Wags program in 2009. My dedication to helping pets and their owners makes training a fun and exciting challenge!

P.E.T.S is introducing a new training service in town, offering basic training for dogs of all ages and those specific issues that may require more attention. P.E.T.S will help shape your dog's behaviour with the right type of motivation and through the use of positive reinforcement we will get the performance you are looking for. An important thing to remember is through patience and consistency you will find success. "Mind over Manners" is my personal slogan because I feel that if you get them in the right state of mind you can get them to have the right set of manners. I am looking forward to meeting the dog's of the Kootenays as I know there are a lot of you out there.
