Owner/Operator & Senior Instructor
Hi! My name is Marie-Hélène - or MH to make it simple. I’ve been involved in performance dog sports for over 15 years now, starting with my crazy Jack Russell Terrier, Mozart. He was my first dog and quite the learning curve!
Since then, I’ve owned a variety of breeds, from a bull terrier to whippets, and kelpies in between. I’ve titled my dogs in flyball, agility, rally-obedience, disc dog, straight racing, and rats detection. I was captain of my flyball team for 7 years.
I love to train my dogs and spend time with them. For me, training isn't a chore, it's a passion. I use positive reinforcement methods, and incorporating rewards with food or toys. For me, it's important that my dogs learn through play and that training is positive, which strengthens the relationship between me and them. I want them to feel like the superstars they are from day 1!
I am always on the lookout for the newest training methods, and I regularly attend classes or seminars on various topics regarding performance sports. To continue my education, and ensure my dogs are well rounded athletes, I completed a Canine Fitness Certification from the Companion Animal Science Institute.
I live with my husband and our 5 dogs: Wicked (Terrier x), Toxic (Cattle Dog x JRT), TooMuch (Whippet), Traction, (working Kelpie), and Jungle my rising star (Australian Kelpie).
Hi folks! I am Kim Marston, your Life Skills, Manners, and Obedience instructor! I have been involved in dog training since my university days, back in the early 2000s. It began at the Toronto Humane Society, walking the shelter dogs and learning as much as I could from the in-house trainer about the typical shelter dog behavioural issues.
Shortly after graduation and starting my career as a Public Health Inspector, I adopted my first dog, a border collie named Sadie, and began agility training. Being a competitive person always looking for a new challenge - and an animal lover - agility quickly became a passion for me.
I am continuously upgrading my skills and knowledge base from industry leaders. I have trained with several different trainers in the area, attended workshops from out-of-town trainers, taken online courses, and practiced learned skills with my dogs, friends’ dogs, and with dogs I have fostered.
Currently, I work full-time in the cannabis industry, am a foster coordinator with a local dog rescue, and I am involved in several competitive dog sports with some of my pups.
I live with my husband, Scotty, and our four pups: Joey the Border-Jack, Buddy the Lab mix, Stevie the Border Collie, and Pete the Caucasian Shepherd. I am thrilled to be working with Chantelle at Millennium Dog Sports and looking forward to meeting everyone and their doggos!
Administration and Event Trial Secretary
Hi! My name is Bryanna and I am the Millennium Dog Sports Admin and Event Trial Secretary. I work as a nurse and spend most of my free time with my dog Ellie.
I adopted Ellie as a puppy five years ago and searched out training classes that lead us from puppy classes, to obedience classes and eventually to dog sports. We were hooked instantly and agility has become our favourite!
We have been training with Millennium since its opening in 2018 and have loved watching it grow while gaining new experiences and new friends. I love introducing people to the wonderful world of dog sports. I look forward to helping you find the right class for you and your dog!
Hi! My name is Lisa and I am an administration support for Millennium Dog Sports. I am a soon to be retired RN who is married with 2 children. My “other 2 children” are my shelties Riley, and his mother Trissy. I am quite happy to say that I am involved in agility and rally with both of my shelties under the guidance of Chantelle and MDS. We have been working with Chantelle for the past 2 years and I feel very grateful to have found her.
Agility and rally has strengthened the bond that I have with both of my shelties, has introduced me to a new sports, and has also introduced me to many great people in the agility and rally world. I am excited to be a part of the great team at MDS and I know that if my shelties could talk they would say this as well.
I look forward to working with you as you embark on the great sport of rally and agility with your pet families.
