Our Philosophy:

altK-9 Specialistʼs philosophy on training a dog correctly, comes from nothing more and nothing less than just pure nature. What this means is K-9 Specialist does not use any tactics to training to correcting your dog that the Pack Leader Wolf wouldn't do his or herself to correcting and training it's own pups in the wild. 

We do not believe in hitting a dog, squirting a dog in its face with a squirt bottle, or shaking cans full of pennies to correct or train a dogs behavior. We also believe that treats should be used only at a certain time of training, which we will discuss more in depth in our one on one evaluation. Here at K-9 Specialist, we believe that there are three phases of training when dealing with your dog. Those phases are the learning phase, the correction phase, and the distraction phase.
