"I never say that I train a dog because that pre-supposes that I am superior and know better. I consider myself an educator which brings me and the dog together as equals."

Felicia Allen, Founder
Epona Stable and Farms animal rescue

general information

For puppies and dogs to live purposeful and happy lives in our society they have to be educated on what living in our society means. There are certain expectations, behaviours and mannerisms that are embraced and others that are frowned on. Dangerous behaviours have to be corrected to civilized. Fearful reactions are tempered by relieving anxiety and past experiences. Little puppies mature into much beloved adults if their education starts early.

Felicia Allen educates puppies and adult dogs. Her four decades of working with rescued dogs or dogs that needed rehoming as well as working with private individuals and their puppies or dogs has provided extensive experience in dog behaviours and working with dogs in urbanized settings. Corrective, obedience, reactive, anxiety-based behaviours and simply educating wrong from right are the specialties taught.

Felicia can also assist as a consultant with deciding which breed(s) is the best choice for a family wanting a new addition.

From large guardian breeds such as Rottweilers, Kangals, Anatolian Shepherds, Great Danes to smaller dog breeds such as Jack Russells, Chihuahuas as well as Labs, Golden Retrievers, Collies, Felicia works with only humane methods to educate or rehabilitate a dog.


Evaluation $160

All dogs are evaluated before educating begins. This is a consultative process where the pet family describes the services needed, the experiences with the dog or puppy, any corrective behavioral objectives, expectations and what the goal is.
Felicia will meet with you/ your family and your dog/puppy and evaluate the circumstances and objectives.
A plan will be proposed thereafter either at the consultation or shortly thereafter with recommendations on how to proceed forward and the associated costs.
Evaluations may be done by video or by a visit.
