Elise plays with a dog on the ground

Élise Saint-Pierre, PPDT

Élise sees the world of dogs through a lens of admiration and curiosity. Her growing passion for dog sports and the driving force behind cooperative working dogs led her to fall in love with the art of dog training.

This new chapter brought her across the country, where she attended British Columbia’s Good Dog Academy - one of the few certified dog training schools in Canada! From the guidance of talented training mentors, Élise was inspired to open her very own dog daycare and boarding business in 2014.

Dig it Dog’s Journey

Dig It Dogs was born as an opportunity to apply and evolve her experience with a grand variety of dogs; observing and absorbing the ins and outs of their behaviour is something that has always brought her much joy.

Shifting Dig It Dogs’ focus towards a greater learning community was a natural next step in Élise’s trajectory. One that seeks to see dog owners truly enjoying their dogs again!

Now with years of experience under her belt, Élise is committed to helping you connect with your dog on a deeper level and build that loving, mutual relationship you’ve been dreaming of.

She has completed several Tricks and Engagement, Competitive Agility and Obedience studies, but nothing is quite as impressive as watching her own dogs work!
