WELCOME TO Vancouver Island Animal Training Association, VIATA!

The purpose of VIATA is to promote humane scientific reward-based training, and animal handling on Vancouver Island.

VIATA was created as a local forum and resource for professionals in the animal care field and concerned individuals alike.


As VIATA members we share as a core value the well-being of all animals we come into contact with and care deeply about humane, low-stress, reward and science-based methods.
