About Me
First Name: 
Last Name: 

Kyla Hillard is a professional dog trainer and Dogsafe Authorized Instructor. She graduated from the Karen Pryor Academy (KPA) Dog Trainer Professional program with distinction in August 2016, and is proud to be a Karen Pryor Academy Certified Training Partner (KPA CTP).


Kyla Hillard co-founded Dogs Dig It Training & Services Ltd. The goal of the business is to enrich the lives of families and their canine family members! Providing education to families and children about canine safety and canine language is very important to the staff at Dogs Dig It. They provide services that stimulate dogs both physically and mentally, such as tricks, scent games, basic manners, Tellington TTouch, and more.

Kyla is continually expanding her knowledge on canine language, and is often taking courses to strengthen the bond between her and her dogs! She enjoys sharing her knowledge with others!

Hemi, a Golden retriever-cross that looks like a Dutch shepherd, is Kyla’s training partner and the reason she found herself in the “dog world!” Hemi teaches Kyla a great deal about training and canine language. Together, they continue to work and expand their knowledge!

Bear, likely a Husky-cross and a stray roaming around the North West Territories, was rescued from the freezing northern winter by Kyla’s husband and brought home. He is such an enthusiastic wiggler and an incredible addition to the family! Bear has taught Kyla a lot in the way of patience in training. Sometimes things take a bit longer, but the success is that much more rewarding!

When she isn’t working with her dogs, Kyla is most likely spending time with her husband and two children. Together, they like to play board games, read, garden, do woodwork, work on automobiles, and so much more!
