Hot Diggity Dogs has been owned and operated since 1998 by Donna Hall. Donna is a charter member of The Pet Professional Guild, a force-free training association. Her popular classes have inspired a generation of pet owners and their dogs. Thanks to all her former Vancouver clients and their dogs – For those that knew her, my sweet girl Blossom left me on March 21st 2022. She was an amazing dog who was my helper in classes and my decoy dog for aggression cases. My shadow, my constant companion, always by my side. I miss her terribly but know that she helped so many and will live on in my heart forever.
