Jamie Whitehead, Speed of Hound Dog Training
If you are looking for private coaching with a trainer who is kind, patient, and compassionate, you’re in the right place. From puppy life skills to reactive dogs, I can help! I strive to not only form strong connections with the dogs I work with, but with their humans, as well.
It is important to me that you feel supported along your training journey, and that you feel comfortable reaching out to me with any questions or concerns. I prioritize helping you feel confident in the skills that I teach you, so you can easily transfer them into your everyday life.
Private training services are currently available in person in Abbotsford, B.C. and online, worldwide. I offer multiple packages to meet the needs of each individual client, so fill out an inquiry form here, and let’s see what works for you!
Find yourself regretting that little ball of cuteness some days?
Not only is that okay, it’s completely normal! Puppies are HARD work. Let me help you get rid of some of the guesswork in navigating the ups and downs of socializing and raising a puppy. Puppy support services involve getting to know you, your dog, and the unique challenges you face, and creating a plan tailored to you and your pups' individual needs and goals!
REACTIVE DOG SUPPORT
Do you dread walks with your reactive dog? Do you feel shame and judgement every time they turn into Cujo when walking past people or dogs?
Does any of this sound familiar? You wake up at the crack of dawn to go for your walk hoping not to run into another living creature. It feels like your stomach may drop straight out of your ass as you get your shoes on and open the door. You are anxious the entire walk, watching your surroundings like a hawk? There is no such thing as a calm, leisurely walk in your life, and you feel a slight twinge of envy when you see people strolling down the street with their calm, happy dogs? You are sick of the stares you get, the snide comments from others, and the judgement people throw at you so casually. Sounds like you could use a little support! So, reach out! Let me help you enjoy walking your dog.
Dynamic Dog Assessments now available!
Does it feel like you have tried EVERYTHING with your dog, and yet still, their bad behaviours aren’t improving? You have seen multiple trainers with almost no results, tried everything the internet has told you to do, you’ve even been to the vet, as suggested by trainers, and gotten the “all clear” from them and you STILL feel like your dog just is struggling to learn? Did you know that your dog may potentially be dealing with pain?
We delve deep into your dog’s gait, posture, and all of the minute details and intricacies of their daily lives!

Jamie Whitehead, Owner and Operator
Hi! I’m Jamie, and I have spent as long as I can remember as an animal lover. When I was little, you could find me laying on the floor with whatever dog was around, rescuing birds and bugs, and helping any animal that I was able to.
When I was 18 years old, I was in a bad car accident that changed my life. I struggled through years of depression and anger, and then I got Turbo. He was the first dog of my own. My heart dog. He changed everything for me. I had no official training or real dog knowledge in terms of behaviour, and I made a lot of mistakes with that boy; but he was so patient with me while I learned, and we ended up creating the strongest bond I have ever felt. He is the reason that I am still here. He is the reason I do what I do. He made me want to help people to avoid making those same mistakes that I did, and create the trust and relationship that will be the foundation for your training.
The car accident, chronic pain, years of being in and out of doctors' offices, emergency rooms, and some of the treatment I received, led me to want to work with dogs who suffer from potential pain issues. I wasn’t quite sure how until the universe handed me the wonderful Dynamic Dog Practitioner program. As soon as I heard the founder of the course speak, I knew this was my path. Knowing full well how much pain affected my brain, and my behaviour, as well as how skillfully dogs hide when they’re hurting.
