Thanks to the support provided by the group Dog for Life, Linda Watson came to Puerto Vallarta on Tuesday to work with dogs from the Control Center, Animal Care and Municipal Hostel -CCAAAM- Puerto Vallarta.

Linda is a certified trainer and owner of the Connected Canine Training School in Victoria Canada. In addition, there are two levels of the training program with César Millán “El Encantador de Perros”, with whom she learned the techniques of this Mexican coach who today has international fame.

The visitor has also been trained in LAK9 training with Colleen Aguilera, another expert with more than 16 years of training and experience.




Linda Watson came to work for the first time with the pitbulls of the Control Center, Animal Care and Municipal Housing of Puerto Vallarta, to give an invaluable opportunity to obtain new adoption expectations for those housed in this municipality, some of which could even be taken by herself to Canada.

Mary Gayol, of Dog for Life, stressed that thanks to the great affection that Debra and Greg Barsalou, founders of the group, have the CCAAAM, which always seeks to provide improvements to the dogs that arrive there. “The work has been untiring for the dogs of Puerto Vallarta, and today they give us this exceptional opportunity to receive this great coach to work together with Manuel Zepeda in the behavior of the pits, undoubtedly a great success for all,” they said.

“It is incredible that our dogs, those who experienced abuse, rejection and abandonment, have the opportunity to be evaluated by an expert,” said Silvia Álvarez, coordinator of animal welfare at the Puerto Vallarta City Council.

Her knowledge with Cesar Millán’s techniques is valuable, and today she comes exclusively to share them with us. It is an excellent experience where the hands of diverse local and international groups, as well as people who love and respect life and unite for a single objective: to help animals”.
