People & Commitment

Everyone involved with Dog Matters is here because of our shared passion for the community we live in and the dogs we live with. So who are we and how are we different?

Susan Flaherty is the founder, lead behavior consultant and trainer. The vision for Dog Matters came from her commitment to enhancing the quality of life for both the dogs and the people within the community of Cochrane, Alberta.

Susan is supported by an Advisory Support representing a cross section of our community. The role of the Advisors is to ensure that Dog Matters is able to respond to and support complex situations by accessing expertise within their own fields, including veterinary sciences, canine rehabilitation, canine nutrition and education.

Susan also has the committed support of other professional dog trainers and behavioral consultants to challenge her thinking and to add their own expertise and advise when called upon.
