Hi I’m Ali Kervin,
I’m a certified positive dog trainer and behavior consultant. I truly believe that reward-based positive training is the best way to train your dog. Training this way makes the experience fun for both dog and handler, and builds a bond of trust and respect between you and your dog. I am grateful to have a career where I get the opportunity to change the lives of dogs and families.
When I’m not training you can find me spending time with my family. My husband Dave and I are the proud parents of two incredible sons. We have a chocolate lab mix named Nakita, a small dog named Harlie (who often comes to work with me), and an adorable kitty named Roo.
In my spare time I love getting together with friends for workouts, Sunday runday, book exchanges and dinners out supporting local restaurants.
I am a huge goal oriented person, setting yearly, monthly and even daily goals for myself. I believe in setting personal, fitness and business goals for myself as a way of staying focused, consistent, and always growing and learning.
In 2021 some of the goals I accomplished include becoming a certified positive dog trainer and behavior consultant, rucking (running with a weighted backpack on) over 400km and overcoming my fear of public speaking.
In 2023 my husband Dave and I started a podcast called Ruck n Rise (you can follow us on instagram) all about mental health and rising out of your comfort zone.
In 2023 I also started a yoga teacher training program with the goal of becoming a certified instructor in 2024.
In dog training this goal oriented mindset is very beneficial for setting you and your dog up for success. I truly love meeting people and their dogs and learning all about you. We will discuss your families needs and come up with a plan of action for you and your dog. I cannot wait to meet you and your doggo.
