Turner & Pooch

Who Am I?

I started Turner & Pooch Dog Training because I have a love and passion for our canine companions. It all started when I was about 8. I got lost in the woods behind my house, I was scared and didn’t know what to do. Fortunately, I had my dog, Zack with me. Sobbing, I told him to take me home – and he did! I will never forget that day. It was the first time I realized I could influence canine behaviour. Since then, all dogs have had a special place in my heart.

Fast-forward to today, I teach dog owners the best practices to change their dogs’ behaviour; changing their lives by helping them have an even better relationship with their beloved dogs. My techniques assure that the training becomes a lifelong habit and not just a quick fix.

I train owners and their dogs in the Peterborough area (Ontario, Canada), helping owners like you create a calm, happy, balanced pet you will be proud to show off to your friends, family, or even total strangers!

What I Do

I teach everyday dog owners just like you how to relate to their dogs and see the world through their eyes. When you hire me to help you train your dog, I help you understand the underlying issues to help you solve your dog’s problem behaviour. Big or small, I help them all!

My comprehensive set of private training programs are designed in such a way so that you get the MOST out of training your dog with me. I include all the basic commands in each program. These commands are essential for every dog and owner. In addition to the basics, I will work with you to provide any further commands and behaviours that will make your life with your dog easier and more enjoyable.

Merlin

Merlin is a boxer I got as a puppy at 8 weeks old. He is a typical boxer with all the exuberance and puppiness of the breed, but he is very obedient and knows when to turn all that excitement off. He is my puppy whisperer, and he sometimes comes with me to train with clients who are in need of a distraction or some extra socializing with a well behaved dog.

Willow

Willow is a Doberman who I adopted in May of 2015. She was not doing well in her previous home(s) due to many reasons, some of which included chasing the farm animals. She was a shy, nervious and anxious girl when she got here, but she has blossomed into a confident dog who now works as my service dog.

What my clients say

Christy Says...

Ineke's understanding of dogs, her up to date knowledge of training, behavior practices and tools and open-minded methods (balanced and open to always learning new things) are what make her a great trainer!

Michelle Says...

Ineke was great with my german shepherd mix who was struggling with leash aggression towards strangers and dogs. She was willing to work with me so that I could learn proper control, and gave me many different options so that we could choose something that worked for us. I saw results almost immediately. I continue to work with my dog and we have not had any issues in months! Ineke is flexible and knowledgeable, and is great for dogs who are experiencing aggression, reactive behavior, and behavioral issues that need quick attention. She uses balanced training which is a very effective technique that uses both positive reward and correction to result in a well-behaved dog!

Vicky Says...

Thank you for your help training my dobe. She has come a long way in those training sessions. She doesn't lunge at vehicles, people and pets on the walk anymore. She is much calmer and I feel more secure with her now. She no longer goes crazy looking out the window when she sees someone. Have had a few people here that she did not nip at as she did in the past. I really see the improvement in this short period.
