Your Family Member; My Passion

Are you looking for a dog professional that is educated, experienced, passionate and successful?

I am a professional certified Master Dog Trainer with the experience of successfully working with over 900 families and 1,400 dogs in the past 10 years.

You’re here doing your homework to find the right dog professional to work with your family – it’s the best first step that you can take!  Below is some information specific to me, but you can also read more information about AKA K9 and our history as well as my training beliefs and methods.

Basic Beliefs

To summarize: I believe in a balanced training method to help families improve the life of their dogs.  In my professional life, I have been an award winning professional lacrosse coach and a top rated senior consultant/trainer for a Fortune 50 company before becoming a top rated Master Dog Trainer.  I’m passionate in every sense about helping your family and working with your dog(s).  I’m passionate, experienced, educated and very thankful that I’ve been very fortunate to have great success in following this dream.

Where It Started

In 2007 after years of learning behind professional working dog trainers, I began my career as a dog trainer by receiving one of my two certifications from the Canada West Canine Centre.  In the years that followed, I continued my efforts in expanding on my education and earned the designation of a Master Dog Trainer focusing on behaviour modification for real world situations and high level training for police level working dogs.

Positive Experiences

I believe that dog training is essential to all human-dog relationships.  It is the foundation of respect and it is the perfect way to build on a dog’s mind and body.  However, this is no fun if it is not a positive experience for the owners and the dogs.  I focus on the relationship and communication methods between owners and their dog(s) using modern techniques of calm, positive energy; typically without the need for treats, clickers, gimmicks or bribes.
