Ali W. is the best dog trainer we've had for our new puppy. Her thoughtful, knowledgeable approach works well. She has so much to offer. I highly recommend her and appreciate her skills
I'm sad to say we have our last training session coming up. My dog Charlie has come such a long way and so have I. I'm so glad to have you as our instructor. Your patience, understanding and love of dogs is exceptional! Thanks so much Ali With love. Val & Charlie
Hi Ali. Wyatt can't wait to start puppy next step class🐾
Allie has been a wonderful resource in helping me with the training of my doodle.Pack walks are also great. Davey Jones and I are thankful we were abke to use her services. She teaches, gentle, yet firm methods with love
Ali, check out Miss Bella!! Safe Harbor's big momma on the go today! She was so curious. Walked all around the yard, up the porch, and so on, building that confidence! To think she wouldn't really walk much on a leash a few weeks ago. Thank You!!!!! 🦊🦊🦊🦊❤️❤️❤️❤️ Hope we have a video of Violet like this soon! (Clearly I was more concerned about watching her than the video. Turn sideways, lol).
What a difference in our poo, Brady, with some help from the best trainer and dog lover around! Thank you, Ali.

Rugby’s first boat trip - I think he liked it just a bit 💙

That’s what I call a happy well trained German Shepherd.

Adelie 💝

Shout out to Augie making excellent progress with his virtual training program. He did a great job yesterday learning his “downs” oh and did I mention how cute this pup is! ⭐️

Someone has decided Egrets are almost as exciting as squirrels so this mornings walk included a little drive control work. I think he rocked it!

Happy International Dog Day from one hot sleepy sleepy.

Wow what a whirlwind few weeks it’s been.

Congratulations to Marie and Abby, Alyssa and Duke, Matt and Hudson, Noreen and Chloe, Kelsey and Tito, Colette and Raina, Angela and Dailey, Rae and Annie, Shelby Brandon with Oliver and Piper. All successfully completed personal training programs virtually and in person.

[08/07/20]   WALK ‘N’ TRAIN

All clients past and present welcome for my farewell class.

Nothing but fun for the dogs. All the usual rules and regulations apply.

Hope to see you all on Monday - weather permitting!

Raven rocks and that’s all I’m saying 💝

Ziggy had a few questions in his consultation - I think I managed to answer them for him 🤣

Pug puppy crush 💙

[07/29/20]   ANNOUNCEMENT

To all my clients past and present exciting times ahead for Key2K9.

I am setting up a new training business in South Carolina.

We are ready for the next chapter and while I am totally smitten with SC I will be leaving behind so many wonderful people and their beloved pets which all have a little place in my heart.

Times are complicated with Covid which has meant many of you have taken advantage of the virtual training programs I had to offer. As a trainer learning how to work from a computer was hard to start with and I could never have done this successfully without my special boys Rugby and Hutch - always willing to help me.

That will not change - in many respects for the time being virtual is the way forward.

So the fact that I will no longer be based in AL shouldn’t really deter anyone from a virtual program.

I’m hoping the weather will communicate and would love to throw out one last walk ‘n’ train. The class that is entirely unique to me. I have so many memories of the fun times we shared especially on our Saturday mornings. I always said the weekends were made for walk ‘n’ trains.

I’m going to miss you all so much but happy and blessed to have this incredible opportunity.


Can’t believe how fast Angel the English mastiff has grown since I last saw her.

This is a breed that grows physically really fast but they can take a while to catch up mentally.

Happy to say this girl and her Mum Denise rocked their lesson today.

We call it mastiff time 💝

Congratulations to this beautiful girl Stella and her lovely humans Michelle and Alex.

Their devotion and love and kindness and training has completely turned this girl around.

She didn’t have the best start in life and needed confidence building and a little bit of hep finding her inner Shepherd.

It’s now time to get out there and enjoy the big wide world. Go Stella 💝

Congratulations to Sarah and puppy Luna for successfully completing their virtual puppy training program - today we finished off with an in person lesson and Luna did a great job of showing off all her new talents ⭐️

Shout out to Jasmine and her lovely Mum Brianna.

They just finished their training program and absolutely rocked it.

I cannot believe how far Jasmine has come in such a short space of time. She is one amazing pup. She is so smart and engaged - watching her train up has been an absolute pleasure. Rugby loves the lessons too for obvious reasons!!! 🥰

Amazing walk ‘n’ train last night with the ultimate distraction of a drone.

Thank you to Marcel for bringing the drone along - the look on the dogs faces was priceless.

Ok let’s talk masks!

As most of us are experiencing when we take our dogs out they are noticing something strange going on with the human population. Yes it’s the dreaded masks.

Let’s just think about this - half our faces are covered and we are communicating verbally through a barrier.

How do we help them understand there’s nothing to worry about?

Use 3 simple stages to introduce the mask.

1. Let your dog smell the mask.
2. Hold the mask to your face for a few seconds then remove and repeat several times.
3. Wear the mask for small periods of time around the house and talk to your dog as if nothing has changed.

Hopefully this should desensitize any anxiety that may be associated with a face covering.

Obviously there are dogs that aren’t bothered by this but I know for a fact that there are also many that are showing signs of being stressed.

Remember what might not seem like a big deal to us doesn’t necessarily mean it’s not a big deal to our dogs.

And finally let’s see those mask selfies - post them below 😷

Someone worked so hard all day helping with the virtual lessons I had to wake him up for the last one 🤣

What would I do without the other part of Key2K9 💙

Congratulations to Julie and Leo for successfully finishing their puppy obedience program.

Half way through our group puppy program the quarantine happened so today we finished off training with the virtual method and both Julie and Leo rocked it!

Oh and did I mention how stinking cute Leo is?! ⭐️

Just had to share this.

My youngest trainer, little Nicholas and his boy Sonny 💙💙

Lovely quarantine pup pic from Daniela and Marcel with Miss Abby.

Anyone else got any quarantine pup pics?

Not a bad day for some 4pu!

Omg look at puppy Meeka and her Brother Moose. Adorable.

We helped prepare Moose for the arrival of puppy Meeka via a virtual consultation.

The results speak for themselves.

“Stay at home” impact on dogs.

A few of you asked me to share my thoughts on our current “stay at home” situation and the impact of this on our dogs.

Hope this helps.
