• About Us


    Your dog is a beloved member of your family and will be treated kindly and humanely by K9 Connection staff.  We have extensive knowledge of and experience with positive reinforcement training.  Positive reinforcement training is the most science based method of dog training.  Dogs learn more quickly, experience less stress and have longer lasting results using this training method.  We invite you to train with us and experience immediate improvement in your dog’s behavior.


    Whether in a group setting or one on one, we are dedicated to enhancing the relationship between you and your dog.  Using only positive reinforcement, we will teach you to understand and read your dog’s behavior so you can work cooperatively as a team.
