Dog Trainer & Behaviouralist

With over 23 years of experience, Grace Bryson dog trainer & owner of rrruffhouse specializes in rehabilitating difficult dogs of unfavorable behaviors. Aggressive and special needs dogs are my specialty! With consistent, positive reinforcement ANYTHING is possible!

Barking, jumping, chewing, pulling on walks, charging or barking at other dogs, biting and simply potty training! I can fix almost any unwanted behavior with kindness and consistent repetition! If you are not willing to give up then neither am I, I will stick with you until the end!

Places we will travel to:

Belleville, Trenton, Brighton, Picton, Tweed, Marmora, Madoc, Kingston, and surrounding areas. If you need help outside of these areas, please contact me regardless. We may be able to find a way to help.

Who is Grace?

Hi there. I’m Grace. I am a very hard working, compassionate and strong willed woman who loves a challenge and never backs down from a hard days work, which is a good mix for working with dogs that are having trouble getting along in the world with us humans! The greatest reward I get in life is when someone tells me I saved the life of their dog so they didn’t have to give it up! I love nothing more then showing people how to be a leader in their own world and all aspects of life! I am a leader, and walk my own path in life and I’ll go where ever it takes me!

Kindness, patience and routine produce happy dogs that will never turn on a human!!

I also blog when I need to rant about something that needs to be ranted about. I hope you enjoy my blog. If what you are looking for isn’t on the blog, please contact me at and I will see what I can do.
