Anita Rahmati CPDT-KA, KPA-CTP
Anita started as a dog walker/boarder in 2018 and was inspired to learn more about the training and behaviour aspects of working with dogs. She started a year long internship at one of Toronto’s leading dog training companies and progressed to becoming a full time trainer in 2021. During her time at When Hounds Fly she taught various group classes and helped many dog parents with challenging behavioural issues through their private lesson services. She is now excited to transfer her dog training experience towards dog daycares and breaking the stereotypes that dog daycares are main causes of behavioural problems in dogs. She is passionate about creating a safe and nurturing environment that any dog parent or dog trainer would not hesitate sending their dogs too. She is also a certified therapy dog evaluator for One Health Partners and supports their Paws to Care program. Anita shares her life with her shy but spunky 5 year old cockapoo named "Lady" who inspired her to immerse her life into the world of dog behaviour.
