Canine Life Skills Coaches.
Cam K9 Services started back in 2008, named after one of the greatest dogs I ever had the pleasure and honour to have in my life. He taught me so much in his 16 years on this earth. Previously to Cam, I had been working with dogs for over 20 years, training, competing in Flyball, Agility, Obedience, Herding, dabbled in some Musical Freestyle, really as much “dog joy” as I could. My dog training style has evolved over the years from old school “check chain” training to more Canine life skills and “relationship based” training. My sister Kathy has Joined with me as a canine life skills coach since we all (together with our husbands) bought our property in Louis Creek. Kathy has also both worked with and trained dogs and their owners for the last 20 odd years and shares many of the same training ideologies as I do. Kathy has worked with various animal charities in the UK as both trainer and foster and Kathy has also competed extensively in dog sports like Fly Ball and Dock Dogs with her Terrier, as well as some herding also in the UK with her young Border Collie. Together we are hoping to make the new CAM K9 Boarding & Training Centre one of the Kamloops area's foremost training centres. We are introducing some new 'Packages' for individuals who need to either 'fine tune' their dogs training or concentrate on specific levels and disciplines of training. We hope to add in Herding Instinct Training as well as soon as we can. We are happy to say we have also expanded our team and now have two more trainers. Nicole and Jennifer have been through our own rigorous training program and both of them are situated in Kamloops itself. Kathy and I both do in home canine life skills coaching and consults, plus when required I can help with rehab of post op cruciates and a variety of other orthopaedic surgeries. I am a Certified Canine Hydrotherapist and have been doing this for 10 years now. I have owned 2 pools and when Kamloops had their own pool, I worked in there as well. I am also trainer for Xtreme Air Dock Diving for BC. We do not get a lot of opportunity for this in Kamloops but I am willing to travel to give workshops to those that have pools at least 33 feet long, but better yet the standard 40 foot pools.
You will find a more comprehensive list of what we can offer you via the 'What we offer' header, where we are hoping to have something for everyone. Our location is in beautiful Louis Creek.
