He considers himself to be a human and dog trainer and emphasizes teaching his humans just as much as his dogs. 

Govind’s dog training journey started at the Edmonton Humane Society in 2010 where he began as a volunteer, then completed their one year dog training program and gradually began to teach both group and private classes. He then returned to the EHS in 2017 to teach the dog behaviour and training methodology program.
