Our Clients Say it Best

I can’t believe how much your training has improved my life. I get to go on walks through the neighborhood, I don’t waste so much time barking like a MadMan at all those silly little dogs. I’m learning to be in very good control when I see another dog while I am out walking and I come when I am called.

Our​ ​eighteen​ ​month​ ​German​ ​Shepherd​ ​has​ ​been​ ​nothing​ ​but​ ​successful​ ​in​ ​her​ ​training​ ​with  Kathleen​ ​and​ ​Dogtra.​ ​Our​ ​family​ ​adopted​ ​Shayna​ ​last​ ​February​ ​with​ ​a​ ​limited​ ​knowledge​ ​of​ ​her​ ​background, and​ ​were​ ​a​ ​bit​ ​surprised​ ​with​ ​her​ ​initial​ ​demeanor.​

At Atlantic K9 Training, we work with you to customize a program specifically tailored to meet the needs of you (ie. your family) and your dog(s), and one that will foster mutual respect; the foundation of any positive relationship.

We understand that every family is unique and every dog is an individual, so our approach to training will reflect that.

Private House Calls and Lessons

Private house calls and lessons are for owners who prefer one-on-one training in their own homes. During private sessions, we teach you how to communicate with your dog. Using both body language and verbal cues, we help you to reinforce the desirable behaviors while eliminating negative ones. We also work on fundamental obedience commands such as heel, come, sit and stay.

Boot Camp Program

This program is designed for dogs who require a more intensive approach. Your dog will stay at my dog training center and work with my team and me for two weeks, sometimes up to four weeks. During this time, we will address any difficult behavioral issues such as leash reactivity towards dogs or people; food stealing; anxiety or fear issues; aggression; and refusal to listen. Your dog will also be taught commands. At the end of the program, we provide follow-up training after to show you the commands your dog has learned, as well as other tools you can use in your own home, to reinforce the lessons your dog has learned.

We offer extended stays to dogs who have issues that require more extensive behavior modification.

Daycare Training Program

During daycare at our facility, our team works with your dog to make sure he or she will have an enjoyable stay. We pair your dog with dogs that are similar in size and behavior to ensure they have happy playtime outdoors. While outdoors, the dogs are under constant supervision and any negative behavior, such as jumping or rough play, is corrected on the spot. Playtime helps your dog to socialize with other dogs and other humans.

Each dog is given one-on-one time with a member of my team, whether going for a nice walk or playing ball, all the while continuing to reinforce positive behavior and eliminate negative behavior. We take the necessary steps to make sure your dog is catered to and has a good individual experience.

Boarding and Training

Dogs that board with us receive the same attention and positive reinforcement as in the daycare program, but with overnight care that allows for extra attention and cuddle time at night.

A loving relationship between you and your dog is built on a foundation of positive behavior. At Atlantic K9, we get to know you and your dog and give you the tools you need to build that relationship.
