TRAINING ISN’T A LUXURY, IT’S A NECESSITY.
From puppy programs to personal protection dogs, everyone can find what they need with The Working K9.
DOG TRAINING IN OTTAWA, ONTARIO & TAMPA, FLORIDA
If you’re looking for a quick and easy way to “fix” your dog, we aren’t the company for you.
Rome wasn’t built in a day, and in our opinion, neither is a well-balanced dog. But the results are so, so worth it. If you think the Coliseum is beautiful, wait until you see a bright-eyed and happy dog heeling perfectly beside his owner, making eye contact, eagerly awaiting the next command.
DOG TRAINING IS ABOUT MORE THAN JUST “SIT” AND “STAY”
Real dog training is about developing the relationship between dog and owner to the best it can be.
It means building a solid training foundation so that you and your dog can exist in the real world, whether as a companion, sport dog, or as a personal protector.
(And to be honest, it’s just as much about training people as it is about dogs.)
How You can train with The Working K9
Depending on your goals, your dog may benefit from private training sessions, a board and train, or any of our other services.
“10/10 I will always recommend Veronica and her team! She KNOWS what she’s talking about, she won’t sugar coat it for you – because that’s how you get the best results for you and for your dog. Her titles speak for themselves without the personal recommendations. I’ve seen dogs go through her program that owners thought were “too far gone” and have come out with incredible progress! Her working dogs and clients have incredible talent and that’s a credit to her work. No doubts, my next dog will come from Veronica.”
“In a nutshell, Veronica and The Working K9 are a godsend!
I moved down to Tampa with a 3 month old Doberman puppy in need of ear posting (and definitely training!). I felt lost until I found Veronica. From the moment I met her, I knew she is a true professional and an amazing human being. You can tell she loves what she does and she’s the best at what she does, striving for perfection always. She also does it all! Ear posting, training, board & train, board.
My puppy adores her as much as I do! I didn’t think I would be able to trust anyone with my dog but I have zero reservations and know that my puppy is being taken care of with the same love I have for her. Thanks for being you!”
“I love attending workshops and open gyms with Veronica. She is always pushing you and your dog to work, to learn more. Love it and can’t wait to attend more workshops!”
“”I’ve been working with Veronica ever since my dog was a puppy and he’s soon to be 2. She is a pleasure to work with during sessions. My favourite thing about Veronica is her passion towards animals, her knowledge and her dedication. She has always been extremely helpful and available to answer my numerous questions throughout my dog’s life. She is my go-to and I recommend her to anyone looking for a dog trainer. Wether you need help for basic training, behaviour modification or even help with sport/show dogs The Working K9 is the way to go. Thanks for always being supportive and helping us when needed.”
“Veronica is highly talented and does amazing things. She has been amazing with Freedom Dog Rescue Dogs.”
“In the beginning of 2019 Veronica and I crossed paths, in St. Petersburg, Florida. Despite her heavy work load, traveling back and forth between Canada and the US, she promptly made time for myself and my dogs. We got in a lengthy training session and from there we clicked. Veronica has not only played a huge part in furthering my knowledge as a Military Working Dog handler, but also my wife’s success with our two personal dogs who are both Belgian Malinois. Her expertise, knowledge, and dedication set her apart from other trainers. My wife and I highly recommend Veronica and her team.”
“After searching and researching trainers, I finally landed on The Working K9. Veronica is working hard with my sibling Doberman pups. They are learning so much! She is working them through separation anxiety, their individual insecurities, they have learned to successfully walk on a treadmill, leash manners and more. Although I get regular updates, I can’t wait to see all they have learned! You won’t find a more honest and professional trainer. I look forward to working with The Working K9 for many years to come!”
