I'm Lydia and I've been a part of the Complete K9 team for 5 years! As a former client, it's awesome to see all of the hard work and care that goes into every day as part of the pack.
I grew up in Kitchener and went to UW for Environmental Studies followed by Conestoga for Police Foundations. After graduation I realized my passion for working with dogs exceeded what I initially thought my career path would be. I now work full-time with CK9!
In 2016 Pepper chose me as her human companion. Pepper is a small breed, but she does not fall into the small breed stereotype. Pepper and I love to hike, kayak, swim, rock climb and adventure outdoors as much as possible.
Then in 2019 our family grew by 4 paws when we welcomed Tony into our home. Tony was a wild child puppy that always knew where to find a party. Today, Tony is still bursting with excitement in anything she does, but she certainly matured into a great trainer dog!
The bond that I share with my dogs is one that I want every dog owner to be able to experience! I am excited for the opportunity to get to know clients through puppy class and witness the bond between owner & dog so early on!
