About Brenda McBurnie

Hi, my name is Brenda and I have built my career through my love and respect for dogs!  I am a certified professional dog trainer.  And I’ve spent the last 25 years  learning everything I can about dog’s, their behavior and their health.

In 1997 I became a certified dog trainer.  I proceeded to teach group and private classes until 2002 when I opened a dog daycare called Doggytopia. I take great pride in the claim that Doggytopia was the very first dog daycare in that area and is still going strong with a solid reputation and happy clientele!

More recently I have discovered a passion for dog health and nutrition.  I successfully completed ‘natural animal health’ certification and have incorporated that into my career.   Over the years I have also fostered and successfully rehabilitated dozens of mistreated, abandon or otherwise ‘behaviorally challenged’ dogs.

Dogs are never boring!

As rewarding of a path as it has been, it has also been quite comical at times!  As you can well imagine, working with so many different dogs every day then throwing the owners and general public into the mix, I have got stories, experiences and lessons on all levels!   The one and only consistent lesson is that dogs are never boring!

Thank-you for checking out my blog, comments and suggestions are always welcomed!
