Emily & her Schnauzer “Mickey”
大家好! 我是一隻迷你史納莎狗,我五個月大就從美國來到溫哥華,我是新移民,我第一個媽媽是一個女孩子,她每天都要去上學,家裡只有我一個,媽媽不懂怎樣教導我,又沒有帶我去上課,所以我很頑皮,有很多壞習慣,例如在家隨處大小便,由其當我發脾氣的時候,我故意周圍瀨,激死我媽媽,後來她忍無可忍將我轉讓給別人,於是9個月大的時候,我又去到另一個新家庭,剛去到的時候,我真的有點兒害怕,不知道她們會不會對我好,又會不會像之前那個媽媽一樣,很快便遺棄我。 我的第二個媽媽是個更年青的女孩子,我又像之前一樣欺負她,把所有壞習慣都帶到新家去,照樣橫行,把這個新媽媽弄得欲哭無淚,而唯一不同的是她有帶我去一位老師那裡上課,希望我能變成一隻乖的小狗,可惜這位老師沒有教好我,可能叫教不適合,或缺乏經驗,上完一個課程後,我依然故我,無任何改變。後來,我外婆的朋友將我介紹到TK犬隻訓練中心, 她們的小狗也是在那裡做訓練的。於是,我就來到這接受訓練,第一次見到導師—DON老師,我便有一種莫明奇妙的親切感,我很喜歡這位老師,也很尊重他,在這裡上了兩次課,行為上已經有了改善,媽媽也很開心,再不用為我而煩惱,我自己也很開心,因為媽媽再不會罵我,不再見到我便搖頭嘆息。 我現在真真正正可以成為家中的一份子,可以和媽媽一起過著快樂的日子,多謝我最尊敬的DON老師,如果你們家也有一隻像我這樣頑皮的小狗,請你快些帶來這裡接受DON老師的訓練啦!拜拜。

Mildred & Doberman Bobby

I brought my Doberman Bobby for training at TK since he was three months old. Bobby is a typical Doberman,VERY energetic, ALWAYS eager to play and RARELY willing to listen. We attended all the obedience classes, agility classes and we also attended the social classes every Sunday. It was A big challenge for us especially when we are a first time dog owner. Fortunately, we have Don! With his teachings and all of kind of informative advises, we gradually “transformed” Bobby into one of those “ROLE Model” type dog. With the Obedience classes, Bobby learns all different commands and with the Agility Classes, Bobby gets the chances to drill out the excessive energy and to practice on follow our commands more accurately! The social classes also helped him to properly “interact” with different dogs and people and helped him to learn to calmly react to any kind of media/environment.Bobby now is 13 years old. He is a calm submissive Doberman and always get very good comments from people when I take him out. People are always so surprised to see how gentle he is esp when he is such a powerful breed and I always tell them that Bobby is a proud student of TK canine.Thank you Don for transforming Bobby into SUCH a sweet heart to my family and everyone I know! I would highly recommend TK Canine Training Centre for anyone who owns a dog and wants the best for the Lovely pouch!

Sarah & Tim & Schnauzer “Oyster”
I met Don @ TK Caine Training Centre 12 years ago when I had my first miniature schnauzer “Charcoal”. Don has provided me with valuable advice on dog care, grooming and being a responsible owner by ensuring my dog was well trained. Don is patient, resourceful, and knowledgable of various training techniques and methods. His training is individualized to address the needs of both the owner and the dog. Don’s training is “leadership” based, ensuring that the dog’s response to obedience commands are consistent. Behaviours such as barking, housetraining, aggressiveness and fearfulness were effectively addressed and corrected. Charcoal lived a full happy life and volunteered as a Therapy Dog with St. John Ambulance visiting senior care homes for many years. When “Oyster” joined our family last December, we contacted Don immediately to schedule training. Oyster has just completed the Advanced Training Sessions, as a 10 month old puppy, he has already mastered many basic commands, and is completely reliable off leash. We continue to attend the weekly socialization class to increase his confidence and solidify his training. We also look forward to joining the agility training course in the future as the last it was so much fun!Sarah & Tim

Mrs. Leung & her OESD “Lok Lok”
3rd Place of Best Obedient(Large Breed) in Dog Show Extravaganza 2007
We adopted Lok Lok when he was 4 years old. Back then, we had little control over his behavior! Taking him out for a walk was stressful, because he was constantly dragging the leash and was not friendly to other dogs. He would even do dangerous things such as running out onto the streets just to chase a plastic bag! We tried another dog training place, but had no luck until we met Don at ‘TK Canine Training Centre’. Ever since then, we noticed gradual improvement in his behavior. Now, Lok Lok is kind and patient, and can join dog parties off leash! Lok Lok’s personality changed so much that many of my friends find it hard to believe that he’s the same dog we adopted. We wouldn’t have such a great time with our dog without Don’s help. Don is skilled and konwledgeable about dogs and their behavior. We’ve learned a pleasant and positive way to train Lok Lok. At the same time, Lok Lok also really enjoys the weekly social lessons. Don is fantastic and I highly recommend him!

Winnie & her Shiba “Toshi”
We knew we would face a lot of challenges in training our puppy when we decided to have a Shiba Inu. It is not the easiest breed to train after all. After Toshi had all his necessary shots at four and a half months old, we brought him to Don and we never look back. Don is a remarkable trainer. He customizes his training to our concerns and specific to Toshi’s behaviour . Right from the get-go, Toshi already complied with Don’s instructions at the first class. Throughout the basic obedience training class, we learned basic commands so that we’re able to interact with Toshi in positive ways. Within a very short time, he no longer displayed undesirable behaviours such as chewing the furniture or going upstairs (we decided it is off-limit to him). Besides the obedience training, Toshi has been going to the social class. He has come a long way in terms of interacting properly with other dogs of different breeds and age. Toshi is at the intermediate obedience training class now. He looks forward to every class and so do we. Don is not just a great trainer, he also provides great resources when it comes to grooming and taking care of Toshi. Going to T.K. Canine Training Centre is one of our best decisions we’ve ever made for Toshi. We recommend Don to every owner who wants to have nothing but the best training for their pets.

I am so lucky I find a good Training School for my dog.

Mario and I still continues to attend socialization class every Sunday. And Don school have a lot of party for the students, every one is very enjoy it. Thanks Don for all your help over the years.

Fonny & her A/E “Puru”
My beloved companion is Puru. In Sept 2002, we brought Puru from the pet shop to our home. He was only a few months old. Two weeks later, we brought Puru to Don to begin training. We did not imagine how Puru was exactly like a little child who understands commands and how to behave. It was very cute watching the training process. It was at this moment that I decided to enroll Puru into agility and socialization class. During this process, I noticed Puru has learned to become more loyal to me. Puru is now 7 and never stopped his training. He enjoys seeing his fellow classmates in class every Sunday. For all you dog lovers out there, I hope you will take your companions into training classes and become an obedient and loyal friend like Puru.
