Dana is the owner of Kinetic Dog Training, specializing in dog sports, recreational scent detection, obedience and behaviour modification.

Dana worked in public relations and communications until 2001 and then followed her dream of working with people and their dogs. Dana trains using only scientifically proven, positive reinforcement-based methods.

As part of her professional continuing education, Dana is finishing the final requirements to become a Certified Behavior Adjustment Training Instructor (CBATI), as well as a Certified K9 Nose Work Instructor (CNWI).

Dana has also worked in many other areas of the pet industry, including dog daycare, several pet supply stores, animal control, humane society and as a dog walker.

In addition to teaching and training, Dana volunteers her time with various canine rescue groups as a foster home and behavioral consultant. She also volunteers with her dogs doing pet therapy at a senior's residence, demos with The Paws Squad, and was part of the BC SPCA Bite Safe program. She has adopted all but one of her own dogs from private rescues and animal shelters.

Dana's dogs have collectively trained in agility, rally obedience, flyball, nose work, musical freestyle, tracking, carting, herding, obedience, and freestyle flying disc.
