Lynda has shared her life and love with animals for more than 40 yrs. As a child growing up, she was always involved with raising her own animals which included horses, dogs and birds. Most of her earlier years were devoted to the Animal Care Industry where she explored her interests. She worked at Pet Stores and Kennels and eventually became an all breed Dog Groomer and from there, went on to work with Veterinarians.
In early 2003 Lynda graduated the CCS Canine Trainer / Behavior Therapist Program with highest honors, and opened the doors to Confident Canines in Kitchener, Ontario. She ran all levels of dog training classes for more than 12 years. She attended numerous conferences and lectures at the University of Guelph and other venues to stay up to date with current positive dog training techniques.
Lynda earned her certification through the Canine Correspondence Studies Program, and was fortunate enough to mentor with Norma Jeanne Laurette for many years.
In 2015, Lynda and her husband moved to Brussels Ontario where she was the first trainer in the area to create, the now popular, Puppy Imprinting Program. Along with Jamie's involvement and puppy wrangling support, they trained numerous puppies for Doodle Creek and Swissridge Kennels.
In June 2016, Lynda offered her Puppy Imprinting program direct to the consumer which proved to be a huge success and good savings to the client with no middle person involved.
In 2017, and at 7 months of age, Nica joined the team as the official puppy nanny. She is a Goldendoodle who has the most gentle and co-operative personality. She will help Lynda train and socialize all the Imprinting puppies coming into our program.
Welcome to the family Nica! You hold a V.I.P position and we are already so very proud of you!
