K9 Partnership

Coaching People/Training Dogs

Thanks for visiting!


If you're like us, your pets have become family members. Since 2002 we have provided dog training services including private lessons, day-training, board & train, group classes, lectures and training shelter staff. 

K9 Partnership offers limited services: private lessons, shelter/rescue/foster training, day-training program, mentor new trainers and lectures.  We work with two species .... humans and canines. Without your involvement and willingness to be open there will be little change in your dog.  We build foundational behaviors and knowledge with both humans and canines. 

We set a foundation and then gradually and progressively build fluent and reliable behaviors.... one stone at a time. Building on top of each other like a cairn. 

Contact us today to schedule services or for more info.

Certified Professional Dog Trainer

Why certify dog trainers?

Establishing a credentialing program strengthens the reputation of a profession. While a certification program isn’t an endorsement of an individual, it tells anyone who is considering hiring a professional that this person has sought out a credentialing program and has passed the credential’s requirements.
