In-person Group Classes are back! We’re keeping them quite small and implementing strict protocols in our classrooms to keep everyone safe – click here for more information. AND since they’ve been so awesome (and because we want to continue to offer our services to people and dogs who can’t come to our physical classrooms), J9’s K9s will keep bringing our Group Classes to you virtually via live, interactive, online Zoom rooms, too! There are a number of benefits to attending Virtual Classes at J9’s K9s – click here for more information!
All puppies and dogs start their J9’s K9s training journey in one of our Puppy Classes or our Beginner Obedience Classes, or in either of our two Private Training options: Private Lessons (offered in live, interactive, private online Zoom Rooms, 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! Note: Due to social distancing requirements, we are currently only allowing 2 people to attend class with each dog in our in-person classes.

You can also create your very own Private Group Class at J9’s K9s! Just find 5 – 6 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. 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.
