Angie and some of her dogs
Her personal time
She grew up with dogs as pets in her childhood and got her first Rottweiler in 1998. Since then there has always been a dog (Rottweiler) in her family. Angie enjoys showing her dogs in the conformation ring in Canada and the USA. She has also titled many of her dogs in Obedience and Rally.
She has competed in Schutzund (IPO, IGP) Herding, Agility, and Seiger style shows.
A great interest in stable temperament and being a rounded K9 in everyday life is important.
Angie is a multi-award winning entrepreneur. Starting with evening classes in her garage after her day job back in the late 90's, in Northern BC, to building a multi service dog business when she started Royal K9 Inc in Newfoundland in 2007. Her "just" dog training then scaled up to her building a commercial space of 6000 sq ft and having a staff of 5 to look after the dog/cat boarding, grooming, doggie daycare, training and full pet store 365 days a week.
Learning and expanding her knowledge base is always something she seeks. Having memberships and active roles in many dog clubs, community groups and business associations has helped with knowledge and giving back to people. Giving live demos on fun games, obedience and agility at community events, teaching responsible dog ownership to school children on their field trips and helping girl guides and beavers with pet responsibility badges are just some of the things on her volunteer list.
All shapes & Sizes
Although Angie has spent decades living with big dogs, she has worked with people with every breed of dog and mix breed. Experience gains knowledge. She has a Brussels Griffon (Mowgli) that she welcomed into her K9 family in 2021 and is enjoying the dynamic in her pack with a small dog and being active in the dog world as well.
Dog Bite Safety Knowledge
Teaching bite safety programs to school aged children, pre-schools, Humane Society workers, Canada post mail carriers and Veterinary staff are things she does on the side.
