About Us:

Your Instructor: Kathy Legault, Lead Trainer (certified)

Kathy lives and works in the Niagara Region, and current pets include three dogs and three cats. She has owned and loved dogs and cats for many years and especially loves working with rescued dogs. She loves to see the smile on people's faces when they walk away with a happy, trained dog! Too often she says dogs are not trained properly and run away becoming a shelter adoptee or worse.

Clearly training dogs at an early age, Kathy's continued training has included many different breeds, sizes and behavior of dogs. Earning a Master training certificate while apprenticing for a year she has also learned K9 scent detection, K9 protection training.

As a dog owner/trainer Kathy adopted many rescued shelter dogs and understands that they have needs that are different from a dog that has had a normal life. Pepp K9 will offer $25 off of your dog's Novice class (with proof) to help that dog fit in with your family.

Helping each client with their dog is what it is all about (and the dog kisses)! Please don't live with dangerous or unwanted behaviours! We can help!

Our Name Is Our Philosophy:

  • Persistence (don't give up, your dog is your student, not a mind reader)
  • Exercise (drains your dog's energy before training and keeps them happy)
  • Practice (practice every day ensures success)
  • Pride (you will have when your dog is trained and in sync with you)
