Jessy is one of the K9PAD founding members and has been involved with the program since 2016. Since being medically released from the Royal Canadian Navy, Jessy has dedicated her time and experiences to help develop K9PAD.
Jessy is a Certified Dog Behaviour Consultant and an Accredited Dog Trainer through the International Association of Applied Behaviour Consultants (IAABC). In 2022, Jessy completed the Karen Pryor Academy Dog Trainer Professional program (KPA DTP) and earned her KPA Certified Training Partner (KPA-CTP). She is also an evaluator for Avidog Apet Puppy Evaluations.
As a Service Dog handler with various disabilities, including PTSD and Traumatic Brain Injury, Jessy uses her experiences to support clients as they progress through the program. A special interest of hers is conducting Team Training with new clients and getting them ready to graduate. Her first Service Dog was Pirate, one of the original K9PAD Service Dogs. With much sadness, he passed in August 2020. Yoshi has taken his place by Jessy’s side.
In her spare time, Jessy can be found listening to podcasts that focus on science-based dog training and behaviour.

Katherine (Kimber) Webber joined K9PAD in 2017 after meeting Jessy and sharing her similar experience of the freedom and independence she gained through her own Service Dog, Ranger. Since then, Kimber has remained a pivotal part of the program.
Kimber began working with dogs at a young age and began volunteering and fostering with a local rescue in 2014, which she is still involved with. Kimber is a Certified Dog Behaviour Consultant and an Accredited Dog Trainer through the International Association of Applied Behaviour Consultants (IAABC). In 2022, Kimber completed the Karen Pryor Academy Dog Trainer Professional program (KPA DTP) and earned her KPA Certified Training Partner (KPA-CTP).
Although she enjoys all aspects of Service Dog training, she focuses her efforts on the intake of new puppies and leading the foundations and advanced training portions. In her spare time, Kimber likes to hike with her dogs and read as many dog training and behaviour books as possible.
