About Canine Centric & Lea


Canine Centric was created in 2013. My intention behind Canine Centric is to help owners and dogs understand each other better. A well-trained dog is more enjoyable to own and can lead to a better relationship between the owner and the dog. Training can also prevent behavior problems and improve the dog's safety and quality of life. Over the years I have developed a method of dog training that is not about force or fear but is fun for all, and thoroughly modern and innovative. We can help with all ages, sizes and breeds of dogs. 

Lea has always had love and a natural talent with dogs growing up. She began working with dogs in 2006 as a dog handler and began observing and assisting with training dogs & classes in 2009. In 2013 she attained a certificate in training and behavior from the Dog Training Internship Academy created by Janis Bradley. A 6-month course that focused on positive reinforcement dog training, dog behavior and professional client consultation. She also has her CPDT-KA Certification from the The Certification Council for Professional Dog Trainers


Lea is also AKC Canine Good Citizen (CGC) evaluator, UKC SPOT evaluator and teaches classes through Sirius Puppy & Dog Training founded by Ian Dunbar. Lea's passion for dog training can be seen through her work. She loves teaching students “how to speak dog” and how to better connect with their canine companions. When not doing training sessions with clients or with her personal dogs, she is continuing her dog education through hands on experience and educational events. Lea shares her life with an awesome husband and her canine companion, Gambit the Belgian Malinois.
