One Smart Cookie K9 Services Inc. was named after COOKIE, our beautiful little blue heeler/whippet who crossed the rainbow bridge on August 23/19, just after her 8th birthday. Everyone thinks that their dog is the best dog and none of us are wrong!
She was truly an amazing dog; very loyal, very loving, and very SMART as you probably gathered from the name of our business. She, along with our other dogs BANDIT-13yrs and LILY-13yrs (both of whom are now romping with COOKIE across the rainbow bridge), LOKI-6yrs and KALYPSO-2 yrs old are the inspiration behind everything we do! Other than KALYPSO who is a black-spotted Dalmatian, our dogs are all blue and red heelers and heeler mixes.
YES, we are very partial to the high-energy, busy-brain dogs which likely tells you a whole lot about us too!
It is also a play on words being that we can use a 'cookie' in a smart way; positively reinforcing behaviours that we want to encourage and reinforce in our dogs.
+R training is motivating to the dog; it builds trust and a strong bond between the dog and their human companion. It is force-free and involves choice (a thinking dog...) therefore training is not stressful, but actually fun! Hence 'One Smart Cookie'.
Andrea Davis is the founder, director, and head trainer of One Smart Cookie K9 Services Inc. She has acquired many certifications in both the fitness and the dog training industry and has been serving her patrons since 2002. February 9/19, we opened the doors to our NEW training facility in Lacombe at 5210 E Wolf Creek Drive

Well, we help bridge the communication gap between dogs and their human companions using markers, positive reinforcement and cruelty-free training methods which is scientifically proven to be the most effective and minimally aversive and works across all species.
