Gentle Training For Dogs & The People Who Love Them


What Clients Say

When I got Beau 5 months ago, I searched and searched online for some group classes where I could get him and me the training we needed to make our walks less stressful when other dogs came into sight.  Many trainers will only do private sessions, but that is not what I wanted.  I found very few who do group lessons, especially for reactive dogs, at a price that I could afford.  When I happened on your website, I felt truly blessed

Welcome to KK9 Dog Training!

Gentle Training For Dogs & The People Who Love Them

If you found our site, you probably have a dog or will be welcoming one in the near future. You may be looking for answers to a behavioral issue or perhaps just want to get your new puppy off to a good start.

It’s our pleasure to provide positive reinforcement training using up-to-date methods based on solid behavioral science.

We look forward to helping you connect with your dog.

What Clients Say

I can't even begin to tell you how much one training session with KK9 improved Bruce's behavior and my confidence. They gave me the tools to help make him a family member instead of a project. Everyday is better, every training session shows improvements. Bruce is a happier dog because of the training tips we received. I can't thank KK9 enough for their patience, kindness and calm with Bruce and myself.
