Testimonials

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.

I had no idea how smart my dog was until I found KK9! They met us where we were at both literally and figuratively. It turns out that you can teach an old dog new tricks. There is still work to be done but just 4 sessions with KK9 provided an absolute breakthrough.
Celene Van Buren
KK9 is amazing! I am Danielle with NoCo Pet Sitting here in the Loveland area. I have recommended my pet sitting/dog walking clients to KK9 and they all love them and their wonderful training techniques. KK9 has multiple strategies for mental stimulation and dog walking techniques for the toughest of pullers. KK9 is the best of the best!

Hannah Howard

I’m Hannah Howard, local animal lover, dog advocate and trainer at KK9 Dog Training. My interest in dog training began with my curiosity in animal behavior and behavioral ecology courses in college and how the theories and facts about animal behavior affect our relationships with our pets.

Dogs are an integral part of life for many of us, but sometimes we (humans and canines) face tough challenges. To live our best lives with our dogs we all need strategies for success as we attempt to communicate across species. I can truly empathize with owners who are struggling with challenging behaviors in the dogs they love because I have faced challenges with my own dogs.

Positive, force-free training methods and compassionate client interactions are my passions. Finding effective ways to communicate what we want from our dogs is key! This may take some problem-solving and patience, but rest assured, I will be there for you and your dog every step of the way. Let’s discover what works for you and your dog so that you experience success as well as strengthen your human/animal bond.

Ana Dahl

My name is Ana Dahl. I am a Certified Professional Dog Trainer based in Loveland, Colorado serving dog owners along Colorado’s Front Range (Loveland, Fort Collins, Windsor, Greeley, Longmont, and Wellington). I have been working with dogs as a professional dog trainer and certified veterinary technician for over 10 years and am passionate about all things dog! I got my start working for Unleashed in NYC teaching Puppy and Adult Group classes, mentoring, and administering the S.T.A.R. Puppy and Canine Good Citizen Exams. I have two wonderful pups of my own — West and Wally (a Whippet and a Windsprite respectively).

I use reward-based dog training methods to help foster a strong human-animal bond. I believe training should be fun and easily integrated into our daily life style and strive to find creative solutions that will work with each dog owner’s particular circumstances. My goal is to make your daily life with your dog a rewarding experience. I work with all ages and breeds of dogs. I love the challenges and rewards of helping our dogs learn and grow.

Kay Williams

Does your dog know what to do?

We know what we want our dogs NOT to do so let’s teach them what is ok to do instead!

I’m Kay Williams, owner of KK9 Dog Training. Because I have dealt with frustrating behaviors in my own dogs, I have a great deal of empathy for owners who may be discouraged with their dog in spite of loving them very much.

Positive, force-free training methods are my focus. Knowing how to communicate so that the student understands (canine or human), is the foundation of all good teaching. This kind of learning is fun for dogs and their people.

My background in education helps me to tailor instruction to individuals. I have extensive experience in differentiated instruction which has helped me teach to the individual client. I have a great deal of patience and am willing to persevere with dogs and owners.

While there are common traits and learning principles for canines and humans, each dog and owner is unique. I love to discover what works for each individual and to gently train for success!

I look forward to working with you and your companion.
