Kingston & I took part in many of the events Wayne put on throughout the years & I new one day I would be bringing a puppy his way.
Last March I flew home with my new Doberman puppy Soul. It was an absolute no brainer to me that I would be signing up with Dogzies as soon as Soul was old enough.
It has been by far the BEST decision I could make for Soul & I. I am so proud of how far Soul has come in less then a year with Wayne & Dogzies. I literally look forward to every single class and knowing that Soul is already and will continue to be a phenomenally behaved Doberman.
Wayne & his Associates are in my opinion what EVERY Dog owner needs in their back pocket. I don't ever hesitate to refer any of my clients or others to Dogzies, as I know I have pointed them in the right direction
You can't put a price on the importance of training your dog!!
Thank you a Million Times Over for All you do

I cannot express enough the high regard I have for Wayne and his teaching abilities; not only for the dogs, but for their owners as well! Wayne's ability to explain and demonstrate training methods in easy to understand, a trait I find many trainers lack. After all, we are alone at home with our dogs once class has ended! After taking both the Adventure and pager training class, and now having Taya in day school twice a month , I am very pleased with my experience.
Our dog Taya is 10 years old who developed aggression and controlling issues. When I turned to Wayne for help based on the recommendation of a relative and friends who have seen his work. Taya has transformed over the course of just a couple months from an extremely controlling reactive Aussie to a pleasant, gregarious dog. She now has confidence when she goes out for walks, to new places, and when meeting new people and dogs.
I never thought she would be able to be walked off leash, never mind go to a park with ducks everywhere. I am happy to report that Wayne and his team have helped make everything possible.I highly recommend Wayne to any one that owns a dog, shelter rescue, serious behavioural issues or just for obedience 101. Thank you Wayne and team!
When we adopted Loki as a puppy, he was shy, fearful and would avoid any contact with us - It took over 6 months for him to feel comfortable enough to even allow us to pet him because he was so fearful. Going on walks was always a challenge – he would put up a fight to leave the house or to get out of the car to go on the walk, and a walk was always a terrifying experience for him - just the sight of another person would put him into a panicked state where he would either want to run away (which he has done a few times), or pull from me to cower and hide… it was heartbreaking…
After hearing about Wayne at Dogzies from a friend and then again from a colleague at my work, we decided to finally get some help for Loki. Wayne arranged for a private meeting with Loki and I, and brought along another English mastiff in hopes that having the other dog there would give Loki some comfort, which it did – I could tell right away that Wayne was an expert who is very passionate and knowledgeable about working with dogs, and their owners. I then started attending the behaviour classes each week and eventually enrolled Loki into Wayne’s Day School. The first time I dropped Loki off for Day School, I was an emotional wreck with the thought of leaving my scared puppy in the hands of someone else, but Wayne went above and beyond to ensure I knew Loki would be in good hands – he sent me videos and photos of Loki playing with him within the first hour of being in his care and completely put me at ease.
Over the last year, Wayne has given me the tools, understanding, and the confidence I needed to give Loki the life he deserves. I can now walk Loki and feel in control (he’s almost 200 lbs. so this is a big deal!!), and with the recent pager training we’ve done, we can even have Loki off leash without the fear of him running away. Loki himself is more confident, calm and can actually have fun like a puppy should – he is also extremely affectionate with us now and just melts my heart with how sweet he is! We see progress with Loki every day and are beyond thankful for everything Wayne has done for us. From the thought and effort that Wayne put into our very first meeting, which continued on through every interaction we’ve had with him, to the consistent training in the behaviour classes and Day School – he has always been there for us every step of the way, as our loyal trainer, and as our loyal friend. We will continue using Wayne at Dogzies with Loki, and any dogs we have in the future, and we highly recommend his services to others.
Thank you, Wayne, for everything that you do, words cannot express how you have changed ours and Loki’s life, and we are forever grateful for you.

We have been using Dogzies since January 2013. Our initial contact with Wayne was our ‘last resort’, we didn’t know what else to do with our problematic aggressive dog. In our yard and on walks he was aggressive with us, other people and dogs and it took everything we had to restrain him. Inside our home he was a beautiful, loving pet. We had spent a lot of money, worked with a Canine Behavior Specialist and 2 Trainers prior to Wayne and tried every gadget out there without any success. We were very fortunate to have found Wayne. Maxx spent some time with Wayne, Wayne then trained us and introduced us to the ecollar; it has been quite a different story since. Since working with Wayne we have a better understanding of the importance of and we are very diligent at providing exercise, training and stimulation for both of our dogs on a daily basis. Wayne continues to provide support and overnight visits for us. We wish we lived closer so that we would be able to attend more of the wonderful classes and activities that he offers. We have seen amazing transformation over the years and whether you have a problematic dog, a puppy, or you and your dog need some structure; we highly recommend Wayne and Dogzies. We will continue to use Wayne and Dogzies for many years to come.
