At The Naughty Dogge, the head trainer, Monique Anstee has been obedience training dogs for 25 years, and has worked with every breed and behavior problem. She is located in Victoria, BC, on the West Shore, servicing Sooke, Metchosin, Colwood, Langford, and View Royal.
Monique is a competitor with national rankings in obedience on her Irish Terrier, Italian Greyhound, her Pitbull, and her Belgian Shepherd. Monique has competed in three world competitions in two different sports. Basil and she represented Canada in International Obedience at Crufts, and Reggie German Shepherd and Monique were two time world competitors with the FCI and WUSV.
Her motto is to train dogs kindly, but more importantly, effectively. Her clients love her for her honesty. Or hate her for her honesty! All training is premised on the belief that we teach rules in order to give freedom. No dog should behave like a robot, or have his temperament squashed, while learning rules. They need to learn to be free and happy, then listen when asked.
Monique has written her own book, which is available on Amazon. Here you can fully understand her training methods. It is called As A Dog Thinketh, published by Touchwood. Monique frequently appears on the C-Fax Radio, and also has been on the A Channel with her dogs, in addition to the Shaw Channel: she is considered an expert in her field by many. Monique appeared on Cesar Milan and did an obedience demonstration with Basil, in addition to giving seminars across North America.
