DFW K9 provides quality obedience, behavior modification, competitive, protection, and service/therapy dog training, as well as basic household manner training for your canine companion.

DFW K9 knows every dog is unique and every dog problem has a solution! We are here to help you better understand your dog’s behavior and what motivates them. We know our training will improve the functionality and happiness of your entire household. Our programs are individually tailored so every dog can be successful, and we are flexible in modifying your dog’s training to best fit your availability and lifestyle. 

Get to Know Us!

Our facility is owned and supervised by a veteran, previous Kennel Master, Trainer and Handler for the U.S Army and DOD, who is also a Registered Helper with the United Schutzhund Clubs of America (USCA). Some of our Trainers are previous K9 Handlers/Trainers and AKC Certified Judges who actively compete in many advanced K9 sports and disciplines at local, regional and national levels.

As professionals, we have trained many breeds in various settings, including but not limited to private/group sessions, board & train and in-home sessions. We have hosted and co-hosted dog boot camp courses. We also evaluate dogs to serve/work/participate in many disciplines, including obedience, sport, K9 work or therapy. 

Our Mission!

  • At DFW K9 we believe all dogs are trainable and all unwanted behaviors/habits can be countered, redirected or reshaped. It is a fact that some dogs, even those of the same breed, are easier to train and/or are more motivated to learn than others, but at DFW K9 we are committed to train ALL dogs so they can better serve their purpose and live a more fulfilling life.
  • At DFW K9 we prioritize customer/owner satisfaction, and we know this is only possible with top-quality service. Your dog is part of your family and you shouldn’t trust just anyone to train them. We promise to treat your dog as though he/she was our own. Your success is our success, and we are only satisfied when you are!

  • DFW K9 will make sure you get the results you’re paying for. With the help and hard work of our trainers you will achieve all of your dog training goals!

How Do We Do It?​

  • We offer a variety of training formats, including but not limited to board & train, private one-on-one sessions, group sessions, and in-home training. Obedience training programs are offered at varying levels, including basic, off-leash, and advanced. We have training programs for puppy management, behavior modification and specialized training (sport/work, protection, nose work and therapy dogs).
  • DFW K9 is unique in its training atmosphere and approach in that our facility is located at our own residence. So unlike other commercial dog training facilities, your dog will receive the attention and care they need to be successfully trained throughout the entirety of their stay. 
  • Our dog training facility is dedicated to dogs, fully indoor and heated/cooled with kennels that are safe, roomy and comfortable. For indoor training needs, your dog will stay with us to address separation, vehicle and any social anxiety, your dog will accompany us on multiple trips to dog-friendly establishments. Your dog will be allowed plenty of physical activity and relaxation time during their stay on our 20+ grassy acres with a pond and shady trees.
