About Billie Groom

Hello, I am Billie Groom, proud creator of UPWARD Dogology.

I developed the UPWARD Dogology formula from working with thousands of dogs over 3 decades. My clients include veterinarians, psychologists, animal experts, canine professionals, rescuers, fosters, adopters and first time dog peeps. The Humane Society of Toronto awarded me for my work with challenging dogs in 2002 and I continued to develop my methodology over the decades through hands-on application.

I am the expert in Canine Cognitive Behavioral Therapy. I work exclusively with dogs over the age of six months because this is when cognitive skills develop causing change in behaviors. This is an unheard of area of expertise because there is no other formula grounded in C.B.T. that effectively addresses behaviors associated with aggression, anxiety, rescued dogs, adolescent dogs and change in behaviors.
