Hailee Dix, CPDT-KA, CPDT-KSA, is an avid animal lover who has had a passion for working with dogs all her life. She has been working with dogma Training and Pet Services for more than nine years. She started as a part-time day school attendant and is now a senior trainer and the operations manager for the two Dog Behaviour and Education Centres in Calgary, Alberta, Canada.
Hailee's passion for dog training developed because she was volunteering at a shelter and was troubled by how many young healthy dogs were being surrendered due to lack of socialization and obedience skills, causing their owners to get so frustrated they gave up on them. Hailee's goal as a classroom instructor is to help all her students gain the foundation needed to have a long and happy life with their pets. She works extensively with dogs who struggle with fear and reactivity concerns and is dedicated to helping these dogs to overcome their concerns so they can feel comfortable and safe in our busy human world. Hailee completed dogma's Dog Trainer Apprenticeship in 2011 and obtained her CPDT-KA and CPDT-KSA in 2012. Hailee shares her home with her Wiener dog, Turbo, and cat, Sheldon (who also goes out on leash and explores the world with his brother!).
