Our Training Philosophy
Our training philosophy is to adapt positive reinforcement and behavior shaping techniques that work for each individual dog. This method is based on establishing and reinforcing solid fundamental behaviors the dog can later rely on as training advances. While others use the word "NO" to point out undesirable behaviors, we use it to teach the dog that hearing this word only means he/she is missing out on the fun!

A training evaluation of your dog is free if you visit us. If you prefer, we can also travel to you for only $50.00. The evaluation allows us the opportunity to become familiar with the needs and training goals of both you and your dog. It also allows us to assess the dog's temperament and personality, and see how well they work with new people. We will also discuss your goals and expectations of the program.

If the dog(s) cannot be located or is/or found dead DFW K9 will offer to replace the dog(s) with a puppy from the same breeder*, with a dog bred by DFW K9 (when applicable) or refund the original amount paid (receipt required) when the dog was a puppy to acquire the puppy.
