Our Staff


I'm Taylor and I am the owner of two of the most wonderful dogs.  Lottie is a 6 year old Border Collie and Grizzly is a 5 year old German Shepherd mix.  I enrolled at Skiplyn Kennels Dog Training in 2016 and I am very honoured to have started as an instructor here in 2018.

My dogs have brought me so much joy and adventure.  We enjoy training and competing in various dog sports, such as Disc, Rally Obedience, Agility, Dock Diving, Scent Detection and we've even tried dog sledding!

Since becoming an instructor at Skiplyn Kennels, I have had the opportunity to gain so much knowledge.  I love being a part of such a great group of dog trainers who are able to enrich so many pet owners lives.


My name is Julia and I have two English Setters.  Molly is a 6 year old female and Cinder is a 2 year old male.  I enjoy hiking, camping, traveling and riding my bike with my dogs.  Our hope is to begin bird hunting with the dogs in the fall.

I started as a student at Skiplyn Kennels in 2016 when we first adopted Molly.  She came with a list of challenges and I quickly developed an understanding of the balanced approach to training.  I was successful implementing it with my own dogs.  I was excited when Tammy invited me to learn this method further and instruct under her supervision.  I often say that Tammy taught me how to really SEE my dogs - who they are and what they need.  I've been a trainer at Skiplyn Kennels since 2018.


Bio Coming Soon!


My name is Shanon and I have been a registered veterinary technician (RVT) for close to 25 years, and I have been working in the veterinary profession for MORE  than 25 years. My role as an RVT doesn't allow much chance to work with dog behaviour and training, so being at Skiplyn Kennels is contributing to my overall understanding of dogs. She has been a dog owner to 3 awesome dogs in the past and is currently the owner of the Havoc, the crazy Belgian Malinois.  You'll often see the two of them working in various classes at Skiplyn Kennels - they both love obedience work! 


Hi my name is Kim and I am a dogoholic. I started training with Tammy in 2006. You will often hear me say it took me 6 years to master intermediate obedience, so I know what it's like when you feel like you're going nowhere with your dog! My 3 labs enjoyed doggie school training in obedience and agility. In the spring of 2017 I gladly joined Tammy's team, I love to see all the dogs and handlers improve. I recently got a new Labrador puppy, Caesar, as well.
