Courtney Faulkner

Courtney, otherwise known as The Fairy Dog Mama, is a 24-year-old woman who is passionate about providing safe and force-free animal care. Her story begins when she started working at a Force-Free Dog training and daycare facility 6 years ago. She soon discovered there was a need for live-in care and private dog walking services for the dogs she worked with at the facility. She built close relationships with her clients and learned more about the force-free philosophy of dog training, and quickly began expanding her network of families who needed her.

Steph

Born and raised in Vancouver, Steph has over 20 years of experience caring for her family dogs and other pets including small animals, birds, and reptiles. Currently, her family dog is a 12-year-old border collie named Jack. He had a litter mate named Lucy who recently passed away. Steph spent a lot of time raising and training them from young pups. Jack & Lucy were the reason she first decided that she wanted to learn all there is to know about dogs, and she knew she wanted to work with other dogs to help them and their parents improve their quality of life using forcefree, positive reinforcement methods.
