Paola Hoger is the owner and head instructor of Shake-a-Paw Dog Training and has been training dogs for almost 20 years.

Shake-a-Paw opened its doors in 1999 and has over the years developed into a school where you can start your puppy off on the right paw, create a wonderful canine companion, or work towards competing in various different dog sports including agility, obedience, scent work, tracking and rally.

Paola has obtained various obedience and agility titles over the years with her Akita – Yukon, her Siberian Husky – Max and her Border Collie – Iggy.

1 Most recently she and Iggy won the Eastern Ontario Regionals in the 26” division – a huge and wonderful accomplishment!

Paola believes deeply that one of the most important qualities in any canine companion is that they are well mannered and well-tempered. This has led her to become a certified Temperament Test (TT) and Canine Good Neighbour (CGN) tester.

Paola is strongly committed to continuing education and to that end has attended seminars and workshops will numerous top level speakers.

Paola is a member of the Agility Association of Canada, Canadian Association of Professional Pet Dog Trainers, Canadian Kennel Club, Ottawa Kennel Club and the Ottawa Valley Border Collie Club.

While her foundation of positive, reward-based training has not faltered, she continuously strives to provide her students with the most up to date learning techniques to achieve a wonderful relationship with their dog.
