Every canine companion has a unique personality and disposition. Because of this, every canine needs to be trained differently. Special K9 has been using the "Triune" method of training for years, "three being one." This training is based on three unique methods; psychology, physics and the mechanics. Our obedience training is based on these three personality traits of your canine for ultimate success. This psychology of canine dog training is similar to the approach therapists use with their clients. Every client has a different background, different problems, different personalities etc. And because of this, the therapist may use a different technique with each patient. Understanding this method of canine dog training requires a unique trainer, with a wide range of experience and a wealth of knowledge. We do not teach the canines to only respond to commands by giving them the option to compromise with treats i.e. "I will do this for you only if you give me a treat". Our training is based on the positive reinforcement of vocal and hand praise which establishes respect from your companion and strengthens the loving bond you desire to have . Whether you want help with basic puppy canine training, older dog training, in-home and public manners, dog aggression problems, or advanced off-leash obedience training our expert guidance, experience and knowledge will help you to effectively achieve a well-mannered companion, and create the type of bond between you and your 4-legged best friend that can not be broken. Please check the testimonials from several of clients who have experience with our training method. Special K9 Dog Training, located in the country of Burrton, Kansas accepts all breeds and temperaments.
Through our dog training methods you are provided with the control every pet owner needs, and deserves.
Our training is also great for the person interested in agility, hunting, and/or using their companion as a therapy dog or service dog. We have satisfied clients that have excelled in all of these categories.
We train for the reality of the pet owners by not relying on treats to get the dog to respond. Serving Wichita, Newton, Hutchinson and surrounding areas!
Our dog obedience training mission is to provide dogs of all breeds, sizes, ages, backgrounds, and problems the chance to make you proud. Special K9 strongly believes with the proper love, training and guidance any dog can be a good dog.
