There are many types of training out there, to clarify; K9 Lifeline takes a behavioral approach when working with dogs. We are relationship based and focus on the dogs primal drives and instincts to better communicate. All of our training programs are heavily dependent on the owner’s involvement and commitment. Dogs are living breathing creatures and each requires time and patience to develop into great companions. Portions of the training program will focus specifically on the dog, some sections are focused on the owner, and others are meant for both. When working locally with K9 Lifeline we strongly encourage participating in our follow up programs to help maintain what the owner and dog have learned including Socials, Walk the Walk®, and Daycare. These programs are here to help you and your dog. Training is a lifelong commitment, not just a yoyo diet, and we are here to provide any ongoing support needed.
