My name is Saro Boghozian and I am the owner of Jonah’s Ark Doggie Centre in North Vancouver where I run and operate my own dog playcare plus provide play and praise dog training. I operate this tail-wagging business alongside my wife, Yoko and my Beagle, Harvey. We recently lost our older dog Jonah the Beagle who we had named our business after in his honour.

We help dog owners build the best and the healthiest relationships with their dogs using a unique method of dog training system, uncommon in the dog training industry today.

There is NO use of food or treats, force, domination or tools like clickers, shock collars, choke chain collars or prong collars often used for training dogs. Instead I use a simple method of “play and praise dog training” with special emphasis on educating dog owners. I am very excited to share this simple training system which guarantees results with all dog lovers around the world.


I have over 10 years of knowledge and experience of working with thousands of dogs. I am not your typical dog trainer. My unique, successful methods of play and praise dog training is not comparable to most training methods.

My book – “A Dog’s Five Essential Needs”, published in spring of 2016 offers simple solutions for dog owners to help build a better life for their dogs.

I am a certified expert family dog trainer and received my dog trainer certification from “The College of Canine Behavioural Science”. I am also a member of the “Canadian Association of Professional Pet Dog Trainers”.

If you love your dog and want to provide the best for it, I am here to help you.
