Centre Canin A. Lévesque Inc. - Training & animal behaviorist consultants


he company

Dog Center A. Lévesque inc. was founded in 1995. It has been serving pets for over 19 years. Our passion for animals and their well-being is at the heart of our concerns. The team is made up of a staff qualified in professional grooming and customer service as well as a certified canine educator who is a dog trainer, animal health technician and member of the Professional Association of Practising Behaviourists (APCP, formerly AIICA), which allows clients to find personalized service and competent personnel for their animals.

Canine Behaviour

A systemic approach, always with the aim of optimizing the relationship between you and the dog. Positive method, with relational techniques to harmonize the education and all the activities in your daily life.

Behavioural problems:

For several years now, the well-being and the relationship that owners develop with their dog has been at the centre of my concerns. I already work with several veterinary clinics. The majority of problems observed in consultations are relational.

The use of systemic therapy is: the human, the canine society and the intervener. Allows me to determine if the problem is relational or if the dog simply does not have the tools to deal with the problem.

Depending on the case, a single consultation may be sufficient. Otherwise, at the next meeting, a written intervention plan will be given to you with the exercises to be done to solve the problem.

- Anxiety disorders (separation anxiety, hyper-attachment, ritual breakdowns)
