Victoria - Owner
Fearless and passionate, there's not much that could frighten Victoria (except maybe a spider). The proud owner of Wild Tails she has been around critters of all sizes her whole life.
After getting her Bachelor of Design at ACAD she knew an office job just wouldn't cut it for her. Then she found her best friend Keetha. She knew her calling was to do something with animals, and to learn and teach. Growing up she only knew about force based training methods which involved punishing the dog for not doing as asked, as such she carried that into her adult life. After meeting her best friend and seeing how she was being instructed to treat her she knew there had to be a better option than punishing and having her dog fearful.
Since then Victoria has expanded her knowledge base vastly. As a member of the PPG and AFFA, she has a wonderfully vast library of science-based, and current information. Watching webinars, and reading tends to be how she spends her down time.
An active member of the community Victoria works very closely with The City of Airdrie's designated CPDT-KA trainer, Jenn Fraser. Helping organize and assist at several events to encourage responsible dog ownership, and happy dogs is what summer is all about!
She plans to expand her knowledge to include behaviour consultant and dog training and get her CPDT-KA and PCT-A within the next year.
I couldn't imagine myself doing anything other than working with dogs. They can teach so much by just being around us, I plan to learn everything I can about these wonderful creatures and share that with the world.
