“Our training is SCIENCE-BASED!!! We use proven effective dog training methodologies like those of super dog trainer Ian Dunbar, avoiding harsh reprimands or punishment. Remember, this is your four legged FRIEND, and he deserves your love and respect as well!”

Some of the old-school training methods had their limited use, but they inspired obedience through FEAR, which isn’t a relationship built on trust and love! Who wants to live with a bully? POSITIVE REINFORCEMENT, otherwise known as TEACHING is what we do for our kids in school, so why not for our dogs? We teach YOU how to effectively teach your dog to walk nicely on a leash, come when called, greet guests with grace and a multitude of other life lessons that make for a happy and welcome canine companion.

About Us

At K9 Kind we use food, play and praise to teach your dog to perform incredible behaviours like a champ, and challenge your awesome friend to maintain focus amongst ever increasing distractions, which he would encounter in our busy world. As your dog builds skills, food rewards become less necessary. Food becomes a super prize for really good behaviour instead of a bribe.

When your dog doesn’t know when they will get one of their favourite payoffs, your dog begins to habitually and reliably responding to your requests. The best part about reward-based training, is that your dog thinks you are the best thing ever and the master of the universe! Isn’t that the kind of relationship you would want with you super-amazing canine friend?
