WAOK9 Training & Rehabilitation offers Board & Train programs and Private Training sessions to struggling owners who want to gain control over their dogs, want them to be calm on command every time they want, and enjoy all sorts of outings with their dogs everywhere they go and whatever they do together. For instance, every time you have guests over, walking at the part, hiking, enjoying off leash freedom, or just want to stay home and relax - your dog will be your perfect partner in all kinds of activities. During our programs dogs learn to listen to their owners, hold commands as long as expected, and follow directions around high distractions even off leash. No more frustration, carrying treats, or ignorance from your dog! There is help. We can help. Any dogs 3 months and older are welcome with behavior issues from as mild as jumping, counter surfing, leash pulling, over all out of control behavior inside the house and/or on the walk to more severe behavior issues such as destructive behavior, crate training and potty issues, leash reactivity, dog and human reactivity, nipping, growling, barking, you name it we will stop the behavior and teach desired ones. We use Permission Based Training Method with a combination of Low Level E-collar/Remote Collar Training, and do off leash basic obedience training as well as behavior modification. We only work with dedicated owners who are ready to adopt the WAOK9 Lifestyle that includes: structure, healthy boundaries, leadership, yes, no, and follow through aka holding dogs accountable for any choices they make. We reward the behavior we allow (what you want your dog to continue doing) and correct the ones that are not allowed (you want your dog to stop doing). During your dog's stay we upload videos and updates daily so you can follow your dog's journey as well as learn about what adjustments you have to change in your/your dog's lifestyle after your dog goes home in order to maintain calmness and your dog's well behavior.

What do you love most about your job?

I get to do what I'm passionate about the most: helping struggling dog owners live a happy & balanced life with their beloved dogs. I get to show them how amazing their dogs truly are and how to maintain a healthy relationship with them in order to enjoy life together.

What inspired you to start your own business?

I see way too many dogs on the end of the leash barking, pulling, lunging, zig-zagging which indicates an unhealthy state of mind.

I see way too many dog owners struggling out there not knowing how to stop any unwanted behavior and how to ENJOY 100% spending time with their dogs.

I've heard way too many times that "my dog is great, BUT..." and it turns out that their dog is anything but great!

So I'm here to help those who are willing to change and put the work in it. Dog training is a lifestyle and happens around the clock, you like it or not. You decide if you want to keep struggling or want to finally enjoy life with your dog.

Why should our clients choose you?

Who else would you choose?

WAOK9 proudly keeps the number of board & train dogs on the minimum (max. 2-3 dogs at a time) in order to give undivided attention to each and every dog. Your dog will live with us, meet and socialize other balanced dogs in a safe environment. We take our trainees to adventures such as hikes and pet friendly stores to expose and train them in different real life situations. We proof our dogs off-leash as well.

We also educate dog owners how to advocate for their dogs as well as how to keep their dogs happy and balanced.

There is a lifetime support and exclusive boarding opportunity available for our trainees ONLY. We don't mix untrained dogs with trained ones and we keep up with your dog's training while you're away.

Dog Training FAQs

Expand all

Making sure your pup is trained properly really matters. Without the necessary groundwork, you’re risking your dog’s wellness and security, as well as the safety of any other dogs it comes into contact with. It’s also important your dog is trained so that it can integrate properly with you and your family. Keeping it out of trouble will save you a lot of hassle (and potentially costly repairs too).

Making sure your dog listens to commands is very important. Not only will handling it be less stressful, but it can stop dangerous conflict with other animals. Furthermore, if your dog doesn’t want to listen to you, situations such as dealing with traffic can potentially become fatal. On the upside, having a well-trained pup enables you and your pet to socialise properly with other dogs and their owners.

Having a dog that is obedient means that life around the home becomes plain sailing. With good manners, your dog will be able to tell the difference between right and wrong behaviour, while being able to foster good relationships with other members of your family. These connections can help to build a fruitful relationship with your pet as part of the family. Time well spent together will allow you to both grow together, sharing experiences and creating the type of memories that make having a pet so worth it.

How about becoming an authority figure yourself? Although your trainer will help your dog get up to scratch, they will also teach you a great deal about the fundamentals of dog training. This includes not only how to handle your own dog, but principals that you can use to understand and better interact with other dogs too. Being able to help out less-informed dog owners can be a wonderful gift to have, and something that you can take further if you enjoy it.

Having a well-trained dog also means that taking your pet to the veterinarian will be a lot easier than it would be otherwise. Considering the nature and volume of work that they have to do, being a vet is tough, let alone dealing with an uncooperative pet in their surgery. In some cases, dogs can become violent when approached by a vet – definitely something they don’t need. By having your dog properly trained, you can avoid injuries – for both your dog and your vet – as well as unnecessary embarrassment upon visits.

When hiring someone to train your dog, there is plenty to think about. The needs of both you and your pet have to be considered and so taking some time to sit down and work out what is important to you is a must. Down below are a few of the questions you might ask when it comes to finding the right dog trainer –

Should I go for group or private training? Each comes with pros and cons – those with a brand new dog can expect their pet to socialise and start to develop relationships with other dogs.

Does my dog need generalised training or would training in a specific area suit it better? One example of this is if your dog has an issue with barking, or separation anxiety. In these cases, someone that can specialise in tackling these issues would be optimal.

Do I need long-term training or do I need a quick fix? Goals such as conditioning your dog for agility or developing a routine will need more time with a trainer.

You should also take care to see what type of strategies your trainer uses. There are a wide variety of techniques that can be applied in order to change your dog’s behaviour – but not all of these involve kindness and care. It’s good to talk to prospective trainers about the ways in which they choose to teach your dog, including methods of both discipline and praise. Techniques such as positive reinforcement are very beneficial for dogs and are particularly powerful, while being enjoyable for them.

While your dog is your priority, how you communicate with your trainer is important too. Your trainer’s should be able to translate their understanding into constructive advice. A good trainer can tell you both what is working in terms of training your dog, and what isn’t. This includes passing on insights of what to do to correct certain issues, while conveying these ideas in a constructive, friendly way. In order to do this, a trainer needs to not only be able to express themselves clearly, but also be diplomatic and observant.

There are various ways in which you can choose to train your dog. Some owners opt for private lessons, while others will put their dog through group daycare.

Group sessions are valuable not only because they are more budget friendly, but also because they are better as a long-term option. This is because your pet will have time to get to grips with a wider variety of commands. However one-on-one training provides your dog with lessons that are specially tailored to their needs, helping them learn in the best way for them.

There are also the various levels of obedience training to take into account. As well as classes specifically for puppies, there are basic educational classes, adult training, agility and advanced tutoring. Which of these you go for can affect pricing, as well as how quickly your dog learns (depending on its needs and comprehension).

Yes! You might be surprised to hear that dog training can be done remotely, through online video platforms like Zoom. They can take the form of group sessions or one-to-one classes to tackle certain individual behavioural issues. Many customers prefer online dog training for all sorts of reasons, like saving on travel time and costs.
