Canines Can Do was started by Dorice Stancher, longtime dog-lover and certified pet dog trainer (CPDT-KA). Dorice wanted to share her passion for training and connecting with dogs in a way that builds a solid relationship and brings out the best in them.
Her approach is positive and motivational, and her dogs have won many national and international awards, including nominations for the AKC ACE award, and the NJVMA for her work with therapy dogs. For the past 10 years, Camp Dream Street (a camp for children with cancer sponsored by Hackensack University Hospital and Columbia Presbyterian Hospital) has used her services to screen, evaluate and train dogs for this very special program. She is vet recommended and has written for the AKC, WebVet, BC the Magazine, U.S. Figure Skating and many other publications. She has appeared on Channel 12’s “The Pet Stop” with Dr. Voynick and helped to turn the American Cancer Society’s regional Dogswalk Against Cancer into a national event.
Dorice has participated in a wide variety of activities with her dogs including kayaking, skijoring, stand up paddle boarding and more. She just can’t stand leaving them home and strives to include them in her favorite activities even if this includes a shopping trip or dining. After all, they really are the best companions.
