She has her Bachelor of Science Honours in Biology for animal behaviour from Trent University, as well as her applied behaviour analyst (ABA) practitioner certification from studying under Dr. Susan Friedman, a psychology professor at the Utah State University.  ABA, with its roots in human learning, offers a scientifically sound teaching approach and ethical standard that can improve the lives of all animal and human learners.  Understanding how animals learn, studying animal behaviour, and helping dog owners better connect and communicate with their dogs is a passion of Tracy’s that she has brought to dog training.  

After graduating university and working in the environmental policy field, Tracy was a volunteer foster home for Homeward Tails in Virginia.  As a foster home, Tracy took care of litters of puppies to properly socialize and assess them before finding them their forever homes.  Through this program, she learned from seasoned canine professionals about how to apply her animal behaviour knowledge to the dogs that needed the most help before being adopted out.  This opened the whole world of dog training to Tracy and she has never looked back.  Over the last ten years, Tracy has dedicated her adult career to canine behaviour modification training, working with anything from basic obedience to inter-dog household aggression, separation anxiety, resource guarding and reactive dogs of varying degrees.
