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.

Atlantic K9 Training currently offers private coaching for dog sports such as agility, IPO, competitive obedience, scent work, canine fitness and will soon be offering group classes in some of these areas.  Dog sports are a fantastic outlet and can be an exciting way to spend more time with your dog. Dogs love to learn, and dog sports are a great way to harness your dogs natural curiosity, as well as stimulates their mind. Dog sports also allows you time to understand the way your dog learns and helps them figure out how to communicate with you, ultimately leading you to that common goal of mastering the sport. With our beginner and advanced programs, we can help your dog develop skills and behaviors that are fun for the whole family.
