Head Trainer

Hi, I am Katie. With more than 10 years in the animal training industry, I am a recipient of the title CPDT-KA awarded by the Certification Council for Professional Dog Trainers. I received this credential during my work as the Head Trainer at the Edmonton Humane Society. In this role I learned the most current and scientifically proven techniques to modify dog behaviour. Previously, I worked in training exotic animal species using the same force-free methodology. I also received the title of DBTMc from the Edmonton Humane Society and became the instructor for this certification program. With a strong empathy for my clients, I am passionate about helping clients and their dogs find the training techniques that work for their lives.

Hello, my name is Shelby. I've always had a love for animals since I was little. I grew up with two pomeranians, and also a schitszu. I recently decided to pursue my dream of caring for animals. I'm currently enrolled in a 1 year Veterinarian Medical Assistant program. Paws Pet Pad has been a great opportunity for me to get hands-on training with working with animals. We get a variety of dogs that come in, and I quite enjoy meeting every single one of them.

Development Manager

My name is Manbir and I go by Mandy. I studied and completed  DBTM (Dog behavior and training methodology) program from    Edmonton Humane Society. I am a former Director of Care (Licensed Practical Nurse) at Rosedale Supportive living. I started practicing nursing in 2015 after completing post graduation at Niagara college, Ontario. I am an active member of CLPNA. After serving humans now it’s time for me to serve your fur babies. I found so many similarities in humans and dogs physiology. I am enjoying it as much as I enjoy nursing. I love meeting your fur babies every day and I ensure to deliver the best and safe care to your babies

Hi, I am Vik. I am very proud to be part of Paws Pet Pad team. I am Alberta's second only CPACP  (Certified Professional Animal Care Provider). I also completed Pet First Aid certification from Walks N Wags. From childhood, I have immense love and passion for dogs. It will be fair to say that all my childhood memories are incomplete without the beautiful souls like Mini, Tipsy and Bruno. These were my pets who taught me what true love, care and companionship is. Currently, I am also studying DBTM from Edmonton Humane society. I am so excited to learn the science behind positive reinforcement and how useful and impactful it is in managing dog behavior. I am enrolled in Fear free boarding and training certification. In the past, I completed my Masters in Humanities and then Business management diploma from Mohawk College, Ontario. I look forward to meeting you all and providing best possible care and service to all your amazing pups.
