About us

Dig It Dogs Canine Services is based out of Nova Scotia, Canada and led by Professional Pet Dog Trainer Élise Saint-Pierre.

Élise understands and appreciates that each dog is a unique individual. Her calm and confident approach will teach you to set clear, strategic goals and arm you with the tools to successfully communicate with your dog and tackle unwanted behaviours at their source.

If you need help deepening your bond with your dog, and you believe in positive reinforcement, I would highly recommend Élise!
