Introduction: 🐾🌟Reliable, Professional, Affordable Celebrity Dog Trainer!🌟🐾 **VACCINATIONS REQUIRED** 🌟WE HAVE A FEW POLICIES. * NO RUNNY POOP OTHERWISE PROGRAM WILL NEED TO BE PAUSED UNTIL POOP IS SOLID. * IF WORMS ARE FOUND IN YOUR DOGS POOP, PROGRAM WILL BE PAUSED UNTIL DOG IS CLEARED BY A VET.🌟 🌟If you have a new puppy be sure to do you fecal with Giardia , parvo, and heart worm tests and start shots immediately.🌟 🌟We are a positive reinforcement training camp based out of Carson. We don't use shock collars, choke chains, or Prong collars. Our programs are created to cater to each client's needs and build confidence while breaking bad habits and developing desirable new skills. I've worked in some of Southern California's mainstream dog training facilities that charge thousands easy for minimal training hours. I also have medical experience while working for animal control🌟 🌟 We provide updates every evening around 8pm🌟 🌟The whole reason behind starting our programs were to help families that can't afford those main stream expensive facilities. One of the main reasons people surrender dogs to the shelter is from poor or lack of training, simply because they couldnt afford the options that were available. Not only do i train dogs but i rescue dogs as well, so a big majority of why i do this is to help keep families together and empty the shelters one dog at a time. Because of that our programs are built to work on the specific needs you have with your pup in real life scenarios. Providing quality training at an affordable rate in a home setting.🌟 🌟We treat each pet as if it were our own, with quality treats and positive training. While we build the foundation for proper boundaries. At the end of the program, it is the owners responsibility to maintain the training homework at home. Owners are expected to attend the Owner lesson & pay attention to instructions given. Once a program is complete we always recommend owners to give their pups a week or so to decompress and get back into the routine of being home. If after 2 weeks at home you find your pup is struggling on something, we are only a call away.🌟 🌟 Potty training takes a minimum of four weeks to get on a proper potty schedule and teaching cues🌟 🌟Please understand that taking away the lure too soon can cause dogs to revert in training. Treats for dogs are like chocolate for us, it releases endorphins that encourage the dog to repeat those rewarded behaviors.🌟 🌟Training is an every day task. It is important to keep training your dog throughout its life to keep the training fresh and provide physical an mental stimulation.🌟 🌟We have close friends who work in the vetinary clinics & nutrition field. We educate every owner on proper food and exercise for their pups, we want every pup to last a long healthy life, shiny coats, clear skin and no dander or rashes.🌟 We wouldn't suggest anything we haven't used on our own dogs and not seen progress.

Train My K9 worked with my young (1-2 year old) pup, River, for four weeks. We needed training for River because of his poor obedience and impulse control. We also welcomed our baby boy in July, and were nervous about our ability to handle a newborn as well as an energetic dog. After a short time with Kai and team, we are so so impressed with River’s ability to listen and take commands. We received detailed training on how to maintain River’s progress at the end of his program. We were also provided with a new training harness and great notes! We feel really confident in our new relationship with River and are truly grateful to Train My K9!

Love them and their hearts of gold.

This is the second time we leave Luna with Them and I can tell anybody that is looking for a great trainer to look no further you have found the right people to leave your fur babies with! There are great with dogs they take there time and believe in giving it there all to ensure pup is learning and soaking up everything they possibly can with so much care and live it’s amazing! We used them when Luna was a pup for puppy training and being indoors and was amazed at how much they were able to do in such a short time! Recently she stayed with them again because she was skittish and would pull when we walked her that was supposed to be for two weeks they were amazing enough that they asked if she could stay a couple days more with her because they wanted to dedicate extra time with her! How amazing is that not only did they give her extra attention to her training but they have sent her home with toys the first time as well as detailed instructions on how to help keep the training going in home and helping them keep it up at home. This second time around they sent her home with some goodies as well new harness for her walks that have worked amazingly and some instructions on how we can continue the great work that have helped. Not only did the send my baby back well trained and with amazing results but I recently sent them a question about what they would recommend as treatment for fleas since we noticed a few on Luna and I really thought they would maybe send me a brand or just a picture but no they let me know different things I could do as well as what they recommend to use on her. They were quick and kind and informative. I can honestly say you will not regret sending your fur babies with them they are amazing and update you regularly and keep you inform on everything and I have told them that I will definitely be using them again in the future if need be and of course recommending them to anyone I know!! Love them!

I am so happy I found Train my K9. I was on the verge of giving up on my 9 month old bernedoodle Mamba. His energy was just crazy. He was like a wild horse. He’s so huge nearly 80 pounds. He jumped on people and pulled so much on walks and yet Kaii was able to figure him out. When I picked him up he was a completely different pup. Knows all his basic commands and also walks right by my side now. I’m amazed and look forward to possibly taking him back for some added training. One thing people need to understand is that she gives you your dog trained but it’s really up to us as the owner to complete the process. The owners consistency is very important so the dog doesn’t revert into his old ways. Kai gave me a packet with notes to continue his training and also the proper leash and harness. She is also so informative on things you need to do for your pets health. Initially I was a little worried because I wasn’t getting too many updates but it’s important to understand she is doing her work and the results show. When you pick up your pup you get all the info you need. Thanks so much Kaii. I look forward to taking Mamba back to you and also will be recommending you to my friends and family.
