Take a walk on the wild side and
tame your wild k9
Our Training Ethos
At Wild K9, we strive to provide a humane, reward-based training methodology with up to date, scientifically proven techniques to build a solid and long-lasting relationship of trust and respect between you and your pet. We’re here to offer you a positive approach to pet training that incorporates a variety of training styles to match the needs of your pet.
We believe it’s never too late to teach an old pet (and his owner) new behaviours. Our tailor-made services are designed with you and your pet in mind to ensure results. We believe in working as much with you as with your pet. Our goal is to provide a long-lasting impact through expert training.
Wild K9 has many years of experience in supporting pet owners to make the needed changes in their pet’s habits. Our high success and client satisfaction rates are our greatest source of pride. Browse our site to learn more about us or contact us to schedule a consultation.
We offer puppy classes and 121 sessions, so whether it's basic manners, socialisation, obedience or complex behavioural issues, we have a service to suit. Wild K9 are focused on not only training your pet but teaching owners how to effectively communicate with them, without using fear, submission or intimidation.
Our Adventure Walks
There’s nothing we like better than being around animals. If you’re searching for a reliable and experienced Dog Walker, look no further. We will take care of your beloved pet as if they were our own — with love, kindness and endless patience.
With years of experience as an in-demand Dog Walker, we know exactly what your pet needs. Forget about walks around the park or a visit to the local park, we ensure your pet has the best adventure each and every time!
We don't do average walks at Wild K9!
Our walks have been tailored to offer dogs the ultimate adventure experience and are structured to provide dogs with mental stimulation alongside physical activity. Our dogs tend to be out a lot longer than average as we drive further to provide our dogs with a unique wilderness adventure on quiet, untouched trails and moorland in our fully adapted, safe and secure vehicles.
Wild K9 is fully insured for dog walking and training services, disclosure checked and K9 First Aid trained. We are committed to providing first class dog walking and training services and will always continue to pursue up to date and relevant studies, training courses, webinars, seminars and conferences to ensure our Continuing Personal Development is always improving. This enables Wild K9 to provide you with the best knowledge and up to date techniques that are science-based and force-free.
Wild K9 was originally founded in 2017 and was formally known as Forth Valley Dog Walking. We relaunched recently with our new name to incorporate our rapidly growing training services which have become extremely popular and in demand.
Debbie is the founder of Wild K9, brings a wealth of experience and has gained several widely recognised certifications within the dog training industry. Debs currently has five dogs of her own which include three Staffordshire Bull Terriers, a Pachon Navarro and an Irish Wolfhound cross. She fostered a wide variety of dogs for three different rescues over 10 years and has gained an invaluable amount of knowledge and experience with different breeds. During this time Debs also gained more experience volunteering and assisting the Dog Trainers that visited the rescue to help with dogs that were displaying behavioural issues. After fostering dogs for 10 years Debbie decided to pursue a full-time career within the pet care industry and successfully completed several courses before starting her Dog Walking business in 2017. After two years of running a very successful dog walking business Debbie began studying again whilst continuing her dog walks and completed accredited and certified dog training courses on animal care, puppy training, canine behaviour and psychology, reactivity, adolescent dogs, canine nutrition, fear and frustration and more with IMDT, School of Canine Science, Absolute Dogs, APDT to name but a few. Debs has continued to learn and now offers scent work, tricks and enrichment workshops and is also currently studying an Advanced Diploma in Applied Canine Behaviour Level 6 and vows to continue learning and studying to always improve the quality of service and training.
