I was not feeling very hopeful about how successful training would be with our 10-month-old-jumpy-full-of-beans-mind-of-her-own puppy. But arriving at our first class I was immediately reassured! Carrie and Joelle obviously love dogs and are both so calm and gentle. The way they build on positive reinforcement, meeting your pup where they are, really sets the pooches and their people up for success! I learned a lot about the “psychology” of dogs which helps me find more patience and joy as we get through these puppy years! I will call on K9 Kind for any training ad- vice or behavioural issues in the future!

Great training courses, well structured, organized and accommodating. I would not hesitate to bring another pup or adult dog who needed some additional aid with training to K9 Kind. The one on one training was incredibly helpful also!

I brought both my dogs (German Shepherd cross & Blue heeler) to K9 kind Obedience Classes and had a positive, educational experience. Carrie takes the time with each dog and handler to help with specific issue or questions. Classes were fun and good mix of real life situations and take home practice!
