Kim Mayes, owner and trainer at Rockin’ Dawgs, has been training in Brevard County, Florida for almost 20 years now. She is dedicated to her furry family members, who she says, have built her into the trainer she is today.

We believe that a well-trained dog is built on a foundation of trust and mutual respect between a pet and their handler. We are all about “Building The Bond!

When not at the training facility, Kim lives with her 4 dogs. Seppala, Rocket & Nova her Siberian Huskies and her little rescue, Loki, who is a Chinese Crested Dog and the face of our logo. We also dedicate the Rockin’ Dawgs training facility to our beloved Siberian Huskies, Nali and Abbey, who have crossed the Rainbow Bridge, but were guiding lights in our pathway to bringing positive reinforcement training to our community.
