                         Our Breeder Dean Audet doesn’t only Breed Labrador Retrievers he also owns The Great Canadian Dog Academy. Dean grew up with many farming & ranching experiences and a love of dogs & horses. He learned about animals from many old cowboy heroes in his life. His fascination with dogs always had him playing with dogs,working with dogs and smelling like dogs. He very carefully watched how they functioned, how they were interdependent and how they communicated. He has been very fortunate on several occasions to observe wolves. It was during this time that the lights finally came on and the parallels were drawn. 

He has worked with many reputable trainers over the years that he has collected great knowledge and experience from. He later took university sociology and psychology classes which were also fascinating.  He has tried many things but his life has gone to the dogs! Through his natural desire to help people and his passionate study of dogs, he now applies his own unique brand of  “COWBOY LOGIC” and dog psychology to assist people with their dog’s behaviour issues. He has assisted 1000’s of families to solve their dog’s behaviour issues and lead a more happy, stress free, balanced life.

The system that he teaches has been passed down from generation to generation and has been taught for many years prior to any dog training school in the country being in existence. If you are looking for fancy letters behind a person’s name, Dean’s name is synonymous with R-E-S-U-L-T-S. He was born in 1963 and has been working with animals for many, many years. Over 4800 dogs rehabilitated and thousands have been saved from being put downLearn more about Dog Behavioural issues. Book your Phone assessment or Seminar at  http://www.dogacademy.ca.
