Our team has the education, solution-based training techniques and experience to help understand your dog and reach your training goals.

Our Training Programs

With one-on-one training, your dog will not only learn the basic necessary commands such as Sit, Down, Place, Heel, and Recall, but will also be able to understand the calm state of mind that is needed so you are able to have your dog around lots of distraction. You will be working on the 3 D’s: Distance, Distraction and Duration, all of which allow you, and your dog, to be able to really enjoy the world around them.

Keep in mind that a lot of the 1/1 training work is going to be about 90% you, the dog owner, and 10% us, the dog trainer. We show you the basics and the fundamentals and you work with your dog daily to get the results you want.

You will learn how to motivate your dog so that they want to learn, both how to do something you want and to stop something you do not want.

At K9 Karate Dog Training , we specialize in teaching you the proper techniques to shorten this period.

Aggression Rehab

Dealing with Aggression, Fear, or Anxiety?

You’re in the right place. We can help dogs overcome aggression, anxiety, and fear. Our dedicated team can provide you with effective strategies and techniques tailored to your dog’s specific needs. With patience, understanding, and clear communication, dogs learn to overcome these challenges and lead happier, more balanced lives.

Discussions about stress often arise when dealing with dogs exhibiting aggressive behavior, which can be a major liability. However, through our program, we can help your dog, allowing your dog to resume social interactions.

Some dogs may exhibit antisocial behavior towards humans, other dogs, or both. Although we cannot compel your dog to be sociable, we can certainly ensure their safety and obedience. In these situations, our responsibility is to assist you in mitigating your dog’s aggressive tendencies and fostering remarkable impulse control and obedience.

Impulse control can be understood as a dog prioritizing your commands over their own desires. Resolving aggression in dogs requires dedicated effort from the owner over an extended period.

The Aggression Rehab Program can help with the following issues:

  • Dogs displaying aggression towards other dogs
  • Dogs exhibiting aggression towards humans
  • Dogs demonstrating aggression towards their owners
  • Dogs exhibiting aggression towards animals they live with
  • Dogs guarding their food, toys, bones, and people
  • Dogs displaying aggression during veterinary visits


Our program is dedicated to addressing and resolving these problems.
