As Seen on CBC with Nancy Carlson!!!



Welcome to Naughty Boyz Dog Training! 

My name is Govind Pillai and I am the proud owner and Certified Professional Dog Trainer at Naughty Boyz Dog Training. I am dedicated to proving that positive techniques are not only incredibly FUN but amongst the most effective techniques in the world! All naughty behaviours do not have to stay that way forever and our work is proof! I began my training in 2012 with the Edmonton Humane Society and I have been fortunate to have trained with hundreds of families since then. I believe anything is possible if we create the right environment and apply the correct methodology in a simple and engaging way. I have also served as the instructor of the Dog Behaviour and Training Methodology program for aspiring dog trainers and I continue to instruct students in their pursuit of becoming professional dog trainers. As a yoga & meditation teacher, I am also always thrilled to share techniques to promote calmness and confidence in my lovely humans when dealing with post traumatic incidents with our dogs. The possibilities are infinite! There is always room to share a laugh in my training sessions or even a doggie dance. Our love for dogs is equal to our love for our humans and we can't wait to meet you all!

-Peace, Love, Unity.

My name is Liz Flaming and I can’t wait to meet you and your pup! I believe that working on doggie behaviour and training should be fun and rewarding for everyone –human and canine alike – and that force-free techniques are the BEST way to make this happen. I was fortunate enough to receive training and mentorship through K9 Misfits and have worked with many dogs and foster homes as a volunteer with the Humane Animal Rescue Team (HART) Behaviour Team. When I am not with my doggie families, I am preparing for my professional dog training exams. I’m so excited to work with you and your family and show you what we at Naughty Boyz know to be true: that positive, evidence-based approaches are the best way to reduce naughty behaviours and have an amazing relationship with your pup!
