All puppies and dogs start their J9’s K9s training journey in one of our group Puppy Classes or Beginner Obedience Classes, or with our Private Training services. Private Lessons are offered in the comfort of your home or at other locations pertinent to the behavior(s) being trained, at our Indoor Training Facility or in live, interactive, private Zoom Rooms. We also offer Day Training in your home for appropriate dogs, where we do the training for you. Many upper-level group classes and fun activities are available for our continuing students, too!
If you would like to bring more than one dog to a group class, each dog must have his own adult (18+) handler. All human members of your dog’s family are encouraged to participate in training, including children! Note: due to COVID-19, we are currently only allowing three humans to attend class with each dog in our in-person classes. Other family members can watch their class sessions in real time via our classroom Zoom portals.
If the Los Angeles 7 day average for COVID-19 positive test results rises to above 15%, in-person group class sessions may switch to our live, interactive Zoom portals until it drops to 15% again. This may fluctuate back and forth as you attend your class. If this happens, no refunds or credits will be offered for class sessions held virtually. You can see the daily report and statistics from the county by clicking here. While we have many safety protocols in place, we feel it would be irresponsible to have multiple people from different households inside our classrooms when our community is experiencing a spike in cases and appreciate your understanding. Please click here to learn more about what a dog training class session on Zoom is like, and feel free to contact us anytime about the status of our in-person group classes.
Using positive reinforcement and motivational methods, agility equipment and fun games, students improve their relationships with their canine companions and strengthen their dogs’ ability to focus around distractions. Our Puppy Head Start Class is designed for puppies under 5 months old – perfect for starting your youngster off on the “right paw”! Our Beginner Obedience Class covers basic obedience behaviors and is especially effective for your adolescent dog. In our Intermediate Obedience, Advanced Obedience and Intro to Agility Classes students enjoy more of our innovative training games and further their skills, adding distance and distractions, tricks, agility and more to their repertoire. We also offer K9 Nose Work Classes, Workshops, Field Trips and Specialty Classes, all of which are terrific for humans who are looking for training specific behaviors, great socialization and/or just more fun stuff to do with their dogs!
Humans are welcome to visit classes anytime. Currently offered only via live Zoom portals – call us if for more information.
