“You can certainly influence when and how your dog expresses his instincts, but you can never completely eliminate them. Those instincts form the basic outline of your dog’s behaviour, like the outline of a picture in a child’s colouring book: experiences, training, health, and individual attributes are the color and texture placed inside that outline to create a one-of-a-kind work of art.”
- Dawn Antoniak-Mitchell, CPDT-KSA, CBCC-KA from “teach your herding breed to be a great companion dog”
In September 2009 I changed my life forever by moving from a small town in Germany, to beautiful British Columbia. As I began to settle into my new life, it became apparent that destiny had stepped in. I took a job to work at a local doggy daycare. I always knew I loved dogs, but turned out I loved be surrounded by them all day... I had found my calling! Immersing myself with them and watching all their individual personalities shine through truly unleashed my passion :)
Working with each dog and their own unique personality seemed to always have me asking the question “why do they do that?
This insatiable curiosity began to shape the direction of my education and the next adventure in my life.
This is really where the story of Bianca’s Dog Care begins:
In 2008 I adopted my beautiful Border Collie cross, Luna. She was the spark I needed to begin down the path. We began with basic training which was easy for her as she is too smart for her own good. Once we were settled in Vancouver, we decided to rescue a beautiful Boston Terrier named Miles. He was very skittish and untrusting, but something brought the 3 of us together. The spark that Luna had started within me, was soon a full-fledged raging inferno of questions around what happened, why was he like this and how could we help him come out of his shell. The decision was simple, I needed knowledge and understanding before I could understand and start on my journey of working with dogs.
With almost 25 years of customer service experience, 4 of which I spent learning from the Doggy Daycare, and the last 7 focusing on training and behaviour, I can truly say I have found what makes me happy... giving back all the love and joy I am given by dogs every day.

Bianca’s understanding of dog behaviour and dog language, coupled with patience and kindness has enabled Kowhai to fully trust an extra human being – a big feat.
Bianca gave us the tools and techniques to feel confident and in control. We still have work to do, but Dazie is already happier and so is our family.
We have seen significant improvements in how we connect with Chase and his positive response. Bianca really is a dog whisperer!

BIANCA & BEN I A TRUE LOVE STORY
"Bianca is unlike any trainer we have worked with in the past. There are no commands or demands; no force, or fear or dominance - just a calm and gentle approach to establishing a relationship of trust, cooperation and respect. She is highly sensitive to Ben’s body language and understands his changing emotions. She reinforces desired behaviours with treats and praise and encouragement. With her beside him, Ben is learning to trust and to live again. For the first time in his life, he is learning to be a dog."
