About K9 Force
Founded in 2016, The K9 Force is a non-profit Schutzhund/IGP Club located in Calgary, Alberta. We are a group of individuals who are committed to team effort and success.
Our mission is to promote and make individuals fall in love with the sport. Our goal is to help you learn the sport, in order for you to confidently step on the competition field.
The K9 Force WDC is an all-breed working dog club, we don't require any specific breeds, however, in order to successfuly compete in the sport, we select dogs with genetic predispositison who are capable of performing in the sport.
We allow our team members to begin at the beginning. You might not have a world class dog and only slight knowledge of the sport but everybody is welcome to explore. We strive to inspire and are all about the “Go Get’em” and “You can do it!” attitude. The possibility of future success always exists.
Isabella is an attentive, thorough, and amazing trainer who puts her heart and soul into everything that she does. She started training dogs over 25 years ago with her first German Shepherd Muhtar. She trained him in obedience, agility, and many other tricks. They became best friend and builds a passion in her that lead to helping other build the bond with their dogs. As a young adult, she moved to Israel and started to work at “Beit Erez” kennel. During that time, she has the opportunities to train with many dog breeds with varying temperaments. She also had the chance to train and test army dogs.
After moving to Canada in 1999, she owned another German shepherd Picasso vom Amalaberg and joined a Schutzhund club in Quebec. The sport fascinated her and by age 3, Picasso earned multiple SchH3 and FH1 titles. In 2008, she became a training director of Club Schutzhund Rive Sud in Montreal where she trained her own dogs. She also worked closely with various Police K9 departments, preparing and testing dogs for them.
