Melissa Major has been training animals since 2001. Melissa spent many years both volunteering and working in animal welfare including for the BC SPCA. After leaving the non-profit she trained her German Shepherd Dog to be her partner working in security.
In February 2015, Melissa and Jax passed their Security-Protection validation with the Justice Institute of British Columbia. They worked in security conducting patrols throughout 2015. Although Jax has retired from security, he is still training in personal protection, obedience, agility and tracking.
Melissa believes in having a well-mannered, balanced dog that is part of the family. She is mom to 2 German Shepherds, a Yellow Labrador Retriever and a small-breed mix rescue dog.
Melissa’s clients include dogs of all sizes and breeds. Melissa offers one-on-one lessons where she can focus on the needs of her client. Whether the problem is lunging on lead and barking at dogs or not coming when called, Melissa is able to give people the tools needed to be a good dog owner and have a happy, balanced dog.
