All puppies and dogs start their J9’s K9s training journey in either our Puppy Head Start Group Class or our Beginner Obedience Group Class, or in either of our two Private Training options: Private Lessons (offered at our Indoor Training Facility, in the comfort of your home or at other locations pertinent to the behavior(s) being trained), and Day Training (offered in-home only 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! We do recommend that humans under six years of age have an additional teen or adult (who is not responsible for handling a dog) present to keep them company during group classes or Private Training sessions.

If you have questions, please check out our Frequently Asked Questions page and feel free to call us at 818-832-9906, anytime. (Please note that this number is a landline and does not receive texts.)
You also create your very own Private Group Class at J9’s K9s! Just find 4 (or more) dog-owning friends to join you in a daytime class, and we’ll set up a custom class just for you! You can choose from one of our existing courses, or pick a skill (or set of skills) you’d like to teach to your dogs. There is a five dog minimum for this option; availability is subject to existing class schedules and private group classes are typically not available on weekends. Please call us at 818-832-9906 for more information.

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 and is perfect for starting a youngster off on the “right paw.” Our Beginner Obedience Class covers basic obedience commands and is especially effective for the hyper or fearful 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, off lead work 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!
All classes are limited to ten dogs (except certain Specialty Classes and Field Trips, which may have less or more spots available for enrollment).
As with all J9’s K9s services, enrollment in any class includes free, unlimited future support from your instructor!
You’ll laugh so much your sides will ache!
Humans are welcome to visit classes anytime. Sorry, no guest dogs allowed.
