Marie got her start in rescue with Jack Russell Terrier Rescue Ontario (JRTRO) in adoptions and fostering dogs. To help new adopters, she enrolled in the dog training course at the Ottawa Canine School (OCS). During Covid, Marie studied online with The International School of Canine Psychology (ISCP), where she earned a certificate in behaviour. She is currently working on a second certificate in dog training with the ISCP and learning to apply her knowledge from the wonderful trainers at the Carolark Canine Learning Centre.
Marie has two rescues from JRTRO that aid in her studies, Jaxon (Jackabee) and Bella (Jack/chi). While she loves all dogs, there’s a special place in her heart for fearful dogs that need help.
