K9 EDGE DOG TRAINING

Chris Edge - Professional Dog Trainer


My name is Chris Edge and I specialize in training family dogs for busy people.


After completing an intensive education in all facets of canine behaviour, I am establishing myself as one of Alberta's premiere pet professionals.


Serving the entire Capital region, I offer private dog training in the convenience of your home. Working with you where your dog is most comfortable, we will create a custom training plan that will provide both you and your dog with the foundations to train for life.


Having invested the time and expense equivalents of a graduate degree, I hold the expertise you expect in a trainer for your family friend. My methodology is completely force free and based on industry leading programs. 


I am a member of the Canadian Association of Professional Dog Trainers, the Pet Professional Guild, and the Association of Pet Dog Trainers (USA). I have learned from some of the most respected trainers and behaviour specialists in North America and continue to discover something new about dog training every day. I have helped hundreds of dogs and their owners find success. I am experienced with Service Dog public access and task training and am intricately familiar with the Provincial Service Dog qualification process. 


From puppies to senior dogs, toy breeds to the giants, fearful to exuberant, I can work with your dog and help you achieve your goals. There is no greater reward than strengthening the human/animal bond and I would be happy to work with you to achieve your goals.
