After starting agility classes in 2017 with her brother's shepherd, Aadra found a passion for working with dogs. She loves the challenges that each dog brings, since none are the same and they all have something different to teach you. With her shepherd being quite reactive, it has taught her a lot about working with your dog’s strengths and advocating for them.
After getting her second dog, she began to shadow puppy classes and is now a full time instructor with Sherwood Barks! Aadra has thousands of hours of experience working with puppies in group classes and private sessions. She teaches many of our group courses.
Aadra currently has both of her dogs in multiple dog sports such as agility, disc and flyball. Aadra has a BSc degree in mathematical sciences, a BEd in Secondary Education, and is a Certified Professional Dog Trainer.
Aadra has two dogs;
Morten, a 6 year old GSD/King Shepherd
Nora, a 4 year old Australian Shepherd/Blue Heeler.
Amanda has been an animal lover her whole life. Her fondest memories though, are of her summers spent on her grandparent’s farm. There she spent her days trying to ride cows, collecting orphaned animals from the hay fields, taming barn cats and teaching the dogs how to dance.
When she adopted her first dog, a Rottweiler puppy, she knew she had found her soulmate and would need dogs in her life forever. After his passing, she became a foster for a local rescue until “foster failing” with an Old English Sheepdog. Who, despite a rough start to life was always a model citizen and a very good boy. She adopted a Miniature Australian Shepherd in late summer 2022 who has a variety of tricks up her sleeve and is currently training in Agility.
Amanda received her certification in Dog Behaviour and Training Methodology from the Edmonton Humane Society in September 2022, is certified in Pet First Aid, and is a Certified Professional Dog Trainer.
She is currently owned by her Aussie puppy, Sunny and three cats, Gilly, Mabel, and Noodle.
Sadie has always had a passion for working with animals but specifically dogs. She has been working with them for the past 7 years!

Her work at the Edmonton Humane Society since 2019 has shown her how much potential every pup has, regardless of their background!
Sadie is currently in pursuit of becoming a Certified Professional Dog Trainer. Her favorite thing in terms of training is tricks and sports, though she is new to it, she loves seeing dogs reach new levels of brilliance and confidence!
