Learn How to be The Leader of the Pack


Course Overview

The Owner of Island Miniature Schnauzers, Beverley Boyce, has been training Miniature Schnauzers for 12 years. Her training methodology is called: 0 Tolerance Alpha Training Technique.

Beverley went down to CA in May 2018 to be trained by Cesar Millan at his Dog Psychology Centre. She completed the two training classes that Cesar offers.

Her training course here on Vancouver Island includes the training magic that Cesar demonstrates on his training videos and on his television programs. Through her teaching your dog will learn her/his boundaries and yes, you will learn how to change your dog’s demeanor within 5 minutes!

You will learn how to use your training voice, how to use your body language, how to use your breathing technique and how to use the Cesar rope leash to turn your dog into a quiet, respectful and happy member of your family. 

You will work with Beverley in the training ring for 1 hour.  Then the next hour will be off-leashing up in our forest.  And the final hour we will practice your new-found training techniques down on Whiffin Spit walking trail.  

This course has been designed to answer the many queries that Beverley routinely receives in regards to the following subjects:

• Barking:

o at the door

o at your fence line

o out on the trail

o in the play pen

o in the carrier
