Ayoka Bubar BA, CPDT-KA
Certified Professional Dog Trainer
Hello, and thank you for taking the time to learn a bit more about me!
My name is Ayoka (pronounced Ah-Yo-kah), my pronouns are she/her, or they/them, and I am passionate about dogs, dog behaviour, and dog training.
I believe that dog training should be fun for dogs and their humans and I like to employ a number of positive reinforcement techniques to help handlers communicate more effectively with their dogs.My formative dog training and behavior experience was during the 7 years I owned Prairie Dog Daycare and was a lead dog training instructor at Two Brown Dogs Canine Consultants for Dr. Renee Will. During that time, managed and staffed, all aspects of the dog daycare business and enjoyed teaching a variety of classes including classes for reactive dogs, foundation sport classes and, rally obedience classes.
I am a Certified Professional Dog Trainer – Knowledge Assessed and an approved Canadian Association of Rally Obedience Judge for all levels and I have never passed up an opportunity to try a new sport with my Rottweilers. Together, we have have trained and/or trialed in Flyball, Agility, Tracking, Trick Titling, Herding, Rally Obedience, Mondioring, IGP, and Scentwork. This broad range of behaviour, training, teaching and competition experience provides me with a unique perspective and a wealth of knowledge to draw upon to help dog and handler teams reach their training goals.
