Our training is not only focused on a providing a healthy balanced lifestyle for your dog but creating a calm and stable state of mind.
All our training programs focus on the board and train, which means that dogs spend intimate time with multiple professional trainers over the course of 4 weeks. At the end of your program you will get a dog who has improved behaviour, better manners, reliable obedience, calmer, more easily managed and more confident!
At iTrainK9 our goal is to provide obedience and behaviour modification training for you and your pet through our continued education and expertise.
Our training is completely individualized and designed to shape your pet into a happy, obedient and well balanced family companion. We will teach you how to continue training, encourage calm and relaxed behavior, and how to maintain a healthy relationship with your pet.
Let us show you what your pet is capable of. You will be pleasantly surprised at the results we can achieve.
We believe that all training should start with a good foundation.
A good understanding of the necessary daily structure along with the appropriate life skills (owner and dog) will significantly reduce the behaviours associated with stress, arousal and anxiety.
We use a variety of motivational techniques depending on your dog’s individual needs. The majority of our training concentrates on creating a calm and stable state of mind which in turn produces a dog who is happier, more confident and reliable.
We at iTraink9 are here to educate dog owners on the necessary components to live stress free without the worry of inappropriate behaviour and build a balanced and healthy relationship with your dog.

Kat helps with our customer’s needs. Her love for dogs started at a young age, after becoming a new mother and at a turning point in her life, she decided to enroll herself into a veterinary assistant program which lead her to become a manager at a dog daycare facility. She is also pet first aid certified. After hearing about ITK9 and the improvements made with the many dogs they have trained she decided to come on board.
Laura’s passion for dogs began at a young age and lead her to pursue a career in dog walking. In total, Laura has worked professionally with dogs for over 10 years and this experience ultimately lead her to owning her own dog walking company. Throughout the years, Laura has worked with many types of dogs and their different behaviours which has developed her appreciation for behavioural training.
Laura was introduced to iTrainK9 when she was seeking help in correcting the behaviour of her personal Husky/Akita, Pluto. The significant improvements she saw in Pluto after his training at iTrainK9 furthered her interest and desire to learn more behavioural training.
