Founder & CEO
Brad Wilhelm is an accomplished dog trainer with over three decades of experience in the field. With a passion for dogs that dates back to his childhood, Brad has made it his life's work to understand and communicate with dogs in ways that enhance their lives and the lives of their owners.
Brad's journey into dog training began at a young age, as he spent countless hours with his family dogs, studying their behavior and exploring training techniques. After becoming interested in breeding and showing Rottweilers, his passion for working dogs was ignited--and he began to learn more about the importance of structure and discipline. Over the years, he has worked with dogs of all breeds, sizes, and temperaments, helping them to overcome behavior issues, improve obedience, and lead happier, more fulfilling lives.
Brad's commitment to his craft is unwavering, and he continues to stay up-to-date on the latest advancements in the field. He has titled in dozens of obedience competitions, and most recently in K9 Street League and NADF Protection Dog Trials. He is an authority on quelling aggression in pet dogs and building it in working dogs. Through his work at Wilhelm K-9 Services, Brad has touched the lives of countless dogs and their owners, and his dedication to the well-being of these animals is a testament to his love for dogs and his commitment to the field of dog training.
Sabrina has trained dogs for over a decade. She was raised in a household with working police canines and learned early on how to handle big dogs with strong drives with confidence. At the age of 12 she helped her first client; an adult male Rottweiler with resource guarding and aggression issues. In 2015, she was offered a job as a dog trainer using the positive reinforcement method.
She trained many dogs using this method but could not achieve the results she wanted without using other means to train. In 2016 she was offered a position as a trainer working for Wilhelm K9 Services. She was finally able to help the clients she was forced to turn away previously, and over a course of a few years helped hundreds of dogs overcome fear, aggression, and numerous behavioral issues.
Sabrina is also a very gifted police dog trainer, and horse enthusiast. Her personal dogs do scent work, detection, as well as apprehension and personal protection. She has helped rehabilitate hundreds of dogs with behavior issues and is trusted to take on some of the most difficult aggression and anxiety cases.
