We're pleased to welcome "Dog Obedience Trainer & Behaviour Specialist"  Andrea Souza de Paula to our growing family here at Pet Country Estate!  Andrea's passion for training dogs started when she was just 12 years old. She started by training her cocker spaniel by herself after watching a positive training show on television. She graduated from the University Estadual de Maringa in Brazil with a degree in Animal Sciences; focusing on Behaviour, Nutrition, Reproduction & Animal Management of various kinds of domestic & exotic animals. It was during this time that she presented workshops, taught other students & the local community.

A Post-Graduate in Behavioral Management of Dogs & Cats from the University Catolica do Parana, she focused on animal behaviour, data collection & relationships with clients; completing case studies to solve behavioral problems. After moving to  Canada in 2016 she graduated from Seneca College's Behavioural Sciences Program, specializing in Behaviour Modification, Applied Behaviour analysis & Interpersonal Communications.

A local business owner & dog trainer is also a Dog Behaviour Therapist for children with autism. With 12 years of dog training experience using positive science-based techniques, she has hosted several groups & private classes, provided behaviour and nutritional consultations, trained dogs for TV & film as well as mentored new dog trainers. She's a proud Mom to a little girl who loves all animals as much as she does, and a Pet Parent to Alaskan Malamutes Lisa & Kevin.

When asked what motivates her at work, the first thing that comes to mind is this: “There are so many dogs that are not truly part of the family because of their misbehaviour and lack of communication between them & their parents. Teaching them how to improve their relationship and consequently increase their quality of life, is what makes me study & keeps me helping so many families.”

Think your pets could benefit from Andrea's expertise?  Call (705) 431-1010 or email: Whether you got a puppy during lockdown, are looking to get your pup socialized or exercised regularly or just want to team him or her manners, we can help.
