    We have an indoor licensed facility in San Juan Capistrano where we do all the group classes. Our classes are limited to the amount of people. We offer beginner manners class, advanced classes, off leash training, boundry control classes, agility classes, competition classes for CD, CDX & Utility.

    At K-9 City we require that your dog be current on all vaccinations. Vaccines required are: Bordetella, DHPP, Influenza, and Rabies. We require the Bordetella vaccination to be given within 6 months of entering the facility.

    A good dog doesn’t come by chance. It takes training, sensitivity, and some quality attention before you can expect to see good dog behavior from your pet. The best time to teach your dog not to chew up your leather shoes or engage in other “bad” dog behaviors is when you first adopt your dog, no matter what his age.

    Understanding natural instincts and behaviors inherent in your dog will help you meet your dog’s needs and prevent canine anxiety.


    DOG PSYCHOLOGY 101

    It is really quite simple. Dogs need the following to survive and function in the wild:

    To be part of a pack or team.



    A position on that team.



    A specific job to perform within the pack or team.


    Your family represents a new team for your dog. Give your dog a consistent role position within his/her new family team, therefore giving him/her a specific task to perform. The objective in proper, loving dog training is to help your dog develop self-control. Now you want a psychologically healthy dog. He/she must be given a consistent role position within their new family team, therefore giving them a specific task to perform.

    When the dog receives conflicting role position messages or he has no specific task to perform, canine anxiety occurs. An anxious dog reacts with the dreaded separation anxiety, digging, barking, jumping, chewing, and others. All these destructive behaviors are your dog’s cry for help! As responsible and caring owners, you must learn how to meet the needs of man’s best friend.


    23 PEOPLE TRAINING ----- 13 DOG TRAINING

    In Dog Psychology 101, we learned that dog training is actually more people training than dog training. Overall, we must learn “dog language” and our canine companions must be taught “people talk”. This is critical for the following reasons:


    Safety for our dogs – they must learn to respond to us



    Owner’s Convenience



    Curing canine anxiety


    The objective in proper, loving dog training is to help your dog develop self-control.


    LEARN THE ART OF DOG PRAISE: “GOOD DOGGIE” IS NOT ENOUGH!

    A written guarantee is difficult, because no one knows when your dog will decide to challenge you. So much depends on both you and your dog.
    At K-9 City, our job is to develop depth and reliability in your dog. We offer classes during the day and evening.
    Anyone working with the dog is welcome to come to class. Check our schedule for the next upcoming group class.
