Scarlett MacKenzie CPDT-KA has been training dogs professionally since 2005, starting in Alberta, with obedience training and pet sitting for family pets. In 2008, she added outdoor fitness classes for dogs and their humans. She developed Petiquette classes on Vancouver Island 4 years later. While living in St. Hubert, Quebec, she learned French and became a member of the Regroupement Québécois des Intervenants en Éducation Canine (RQIEC) . Scarlett now lives in Petawawa, Ontario and is a trainer, Canine Good Neighbour Evaluator, bite prevention educator, anti-BSL advocate, and APDT C.L.A.S.S. instructor.
Scarlett’s favorite moment is when a dog suddenly understands what his best friend is asking him to do; he tilts his head to the side, one ear pointing up, and the light bulb illuminates over his head.
Now he understands what you’ve been saying all along!
Helping clients and their dogs communicate more effectively is what Nice Dog, Scarlett! Is all about.
