Jennifer Kiloh, Trainer

 

Jennifer has always had a love for animals but dogs hold a special spot in her heart. She has a 
three year old Rottweiler named Miloh. She has a family with four teenagers. Jennifer’s 
previous work experience has always been in emergency services working for BCAS, RCMP 
and Kamloops Fire Dept.  During that time though, she always wondered how someone 
became a certified dog trainer and last year, she was able to obtain her dream becoming a 
certified dog trainer through Animal Behaviour College. Through that program she met Chris 
and Kathy and joined the team at Cam K9 Training Centre, where she became a Canine Life 
Skills Coach. She is just beginning her career and enjoys teaching puppy and basic obedience 
classes. She also enjoys meeting with clients privately. Jennifer enjoys learning new things and 
hopes to bring scent work to Cam K9 Training Centre soon.
