In 2004 she rescued a 1-year-old shepherd. At the time she was 19 years old and volunteering at the Veterinary office in Outlook, SK. She saw a poster about him needing a home. She called the owners immediately and brought him home. He was the very first dog that she had ever adopted on her own. She struggled with training him. Her family had dogs all her life so she thought she could do it. However, it appeared that Wolfgang had a lesson or two to teach her. She got training advice from everyone and their dog but Wolfgang and Tammy simply just struggled to connect. It wasn’t until she got hooked on force-free training that she started to understand him on a deeper level.
Since then she has helped many people understand how to work with their dogs. It isn’t a one size fits all kind of thing. Everyone has different needs. Over the years she has had the honor to watch the beautiful relationship between animal and handler flourish and thrive over and over again.
In the past 10 years, she got the privilege to work with some of the top trainers in the area. She got certified through Animal Behavior College as well as Certified Pet Dog Trainer. After her son came along her Certified Pet Dog Trainer certification expired. However, she is well on her way to getting re-certified in 2019.

Nea has been obsessed with animals since she was a child. She spent as much time as possible learning about them and being with them. She has gained experience and knowledge through her grandfather’s farm, vet practice, dog sitting for family members as well as through books and informative DVD’s/shows. Over the years Nea has run a few dog-related businesses on her own and is always looking for opportunities to expand her knowledge and skills.
Nea wanted to be a vet and farmer since she was 4 years old but changed her mind once she saw The Dog Whisperer and realized dog training was an actual job someone could have.
Nea is currently working towards obtaining her CBCC-KA. (Certified Behavior Consultant Canine-Knowledge Assessed.)
