Positive reinforcement training for dogs and the people who love them.

Welcome to KK9 Dog Training!

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.

  • 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.

  • 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!

  • My dog Beau and I had a great time... training me and him. KK9 mixed play and "work" so that the sessions were more fun and engaging for him. The use of positive reinforcement and reward are the focus. KK9 was able to match our sessions with another dog that they knew would be very compatible with Beau so that the training was relaxed and productive. We were given valuable training tips to work on at home as well.

Kay Williams, KK9 dog trainer for Rhode Island

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.
