Desiree McLean


Professional dog trainer, Desiree McLean, began her career with canines in 2004 working in a grooming salon. She became interested in dog training and begin working in the field of obedience training in 2007 and then later on adding behavioural coaching to her repertoire. Studying psychology and behaviour and helping families with their dogs has become her ultimate passion for the last decade.
Desiree is mom to an active toddler, four dogs (ranging from 7 lbs to 70 lbs) and a new kitten. She understands what a busy family life is and offers realistic solutions for the every day average pet owner
Desiree enjoys working one on one with clients in their home. It’s a completely different, more intimate, and ultimately more efficient and successful way of training really challenging dogs.



I have always had a huge passion for helping and working with dogs and animals. I see them as family members rather than just pets, and my goal is to help them physically, mentally, and emotionally. I am a Veterinary Assistant student at the University of the Fraser Valley and am loving every moment of learning about something I am so passionate about. While I have had family dogs most of my life, I adopted my own rescue, Jack, a 2 year old Border Collie Mix, from the BCSPCA in December of 2017 and have devoted time and energy into making his life better than his past one. In the future, I hope to be gaining experience with Desiree, in an Animal Clinic, and eventually I want to work with a rescue saving dogs that need homes.
