At The Naughty Dogge, the head trainer, Monique Anstee has been obedience training dogs for 25 years, and has worked with every breed and every problem. She is located in Victoria, BC, on the West Shore.
Monique is a competitor with national rankings in obedience on her Irish Terrier, Italian Greyhound, her Pitbull, and her Belgian Shepherd. Monique was also the first Canadian to represent Canada in International Obedience at Crufts.
Her motto is to train dogs kindly, but more importantly, effectively. Her clients love her for her honesty. She has been called a drill-sergeant by some because she will not allow people to be disrespectful or unfair to their dogs - she will advocate for your dog. And 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 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 being the teacher of other trainers when it comes to behaviour problems in dogs.
Monique is the author of the book, "As A Dog Thinketh", published in December 2017.
