Welcome to the Funny Farm!

 My name is Angel Dumoulin KPA CTP.  I am the owner/operator of Funny Farm K9 Coaching and a Certified Dog Trainer Professional Graduate from the Karen Pryor Academy.  I am a huge advocate for fun, force free, fear free animal training.  I work very hard at staying current on humane handling and training techniques for animals, especially dogs. Education is extremely important to me so I am very careful which types of certifications I work toward as well as the professionals I choose to support in my field. I love everyone but I support the best at force free, fear free training. 

  I love dogs and will talk about them at length to anyone who dares come near me.  I have spent my entire life working with animals to some degree and have been a professional dog trainer for 20+ years. Animals can happily be taught everything we need them to know in life, there is no reason to force them into submission.  I have worked with kids, horses, gerbils, hamsters, fish, goats, and dogs.  I dare you to put a shock collar on a betta fish 😉 Positive fun training is for everyone!  Below is listed some of my accomplishments before I moved to the fine city of Medicine Hat.  My mission in life is to help as many dogs (and their humans) live a long, healthy, happy life together.
