Training tailored to your dog's personality to set you up for success  

"My personal experience has taught me not to sell a specific philosophy. Every dog is different, and a mismatch between the dog and the philosophy will result in the dog shutting down."

"She makes dogs just make sense. Chris takes the approach of helping you understand how your dog thinks, which makes training them SO much easier."

Adult Training

This is a performance-based program for dogs who are 5 months and older, and includes 5 private, in-home sessions.

Upon completion of your 5 private sessions, we will assess your progress. 


Once your dog has achieved competency in basic obedience, then we begin distraction training. This is accomplished with the help of other dogs and their owners. Everyone in these group classes has gone through the private sessions and is training for control with their dogs. The environment is a safe learning atmosphere and should be fun for you and your dog.  

When you sign up with K9 Leadership Training you become a member of a community of like-minded dog owners. As a community we reinforce the lessons learned in private sessions by meeting often.

Your program will be tailor-made to fit you and your dog. Whether your dog needs more time socializing in a controlled environment, or more private sessions, this is for you. We will work hard to help you realize your goals. 

We understand the vital importance of raising a well-adjusted, confident animal. We will equip you with the tools you need to communicate effectively, train with confidence, and make it fun for all members of the family.
