Zoe is such a wonderful trainer! She’s so knowledgeable about dog behaviour, and has such a love for doggos. She spends extra time making video homework that’s clear to follow and welcomes in between session questions to clarify anything you aren’t sure about. My dog is obsessed with her - not just because she gives treat rewards ;) but because she’s so kind and calm and Georgie always knows what to expect.

Zoe is an incredibly knowledgeable and patient dog trainer. My husband and I learned effective tools to troubleshoot our dog’s (4.5 year old American Bulldog/Boxer, Charlotte) reactive behaviour on leash towards other dogs. Dogs on a Path is now the third training company for which we’ve sought services and is the only one that has produced significant results. Charlotte felt very comfortable and happy around Zoe, as was evident in the photos Zoe took of her as well as the videos :). Her tutorials and follow-up training guides were accessible and very easy to follow - fun as well! Charlotte is still in the process of unlearning her triggering behaviour, but through Zoe’s guidance and start-to-finish routines, we are well on our way! It is never too late for a dog to learn new tricks. Thanks you, Zoe!

Zoe is a wonderful trainer. I had no idea what to do in terms of training (I haven't had a dog in over 30 years and wasn't involved in her training) but Zoe made it easy. The descriptions and videos are super helpful. Grace, Too (our five month old Potcake) absolutely loved Zoe. She is so gentle and calm and kind. She is very accessible in between sessions which is very helpful. Thanks so much!

Zoe is an awesome dog trainer and I highly recommend her. Her positive and calm demeanor creates a great foundation for all the training. Both Marlin (my rescue dog) and myself enjoyed our Saturday morning training sessions with her. I looked forward to each week as I watched my dog improve with the help of her tips and training. She is a constant professional and answered all email/text questions in a prompt manner. She never made me feel like I was asking a silly question, being a first time dog owner I asked a lot of questions. :) she has helped me understand my dogs needs to help be a better dog parent and strengthen my bond with my dog. Thanks Zoe for all your help. If you live in the west end contact Zoe.

My 10 month old puppy just graduated from the laying the foundations program and I have been seeing the changes in her behaviour since day one! Zoe demonstrated each lesson to us every week providing additional homework which she check on the following lesson. We are looking forward to the next round! It’s been so much fun for both me and my pupper.

Working with Zoe has been great! Darcy's recall has improved a lot. She had so many great tips and provided really comprehensive guidance along the way. I highly recommend her as a trainer!

It was great working with Zoe on my dog's struggles with reactivity. She gave a lot of personalized support in the training sessions and provided a lot of information and resources over email. I learned so much from Zoe about how dogs think and feel, and I really appreciated her focus on positive reinforcement and counter-conditioning instead of punitive methods. Zoe also helped me work on loose-leash walking and building my dog's confidence. I would absolutely recommend Zoe to anyone looking for a kind and supportive trainer.

We worked with Zoe over the summer to work on my doodle's reactivity towards strangers. She was very knowledgeable about dog behaviour and was able to create a realistic but effective plan for my dog, Mei. She is very accommodating and supportive. Zoe would often reach out to us and she even went out of her way to meet us in person to do some CC. We are so thankful to find such an amazing trainer who we can connect with through a personal level. (Long Distance Client)

Zoe is an amazing training to work with. My almost 7 month Golden Porthos and I have learned so many great ways of interacting with each other, strangers, friends and even children (who Porthos loves). She also provides support for us first time owners who are nervous about our new pups and family members. She's is supporting us greatly through learning the basics and hopefully into being a support animal for my anxiety. I would recommend Zoe to anyone!! and if Porthos could ...I think he would too!!!!

Zoe is a great trainer! We would definitely recommend her to anyone who is looking into helping their pups feel more confident and comfortable with their surroundings!
