We believe in healthy relationships, clear communication between you and your dog, and establishing appropriate boundaries in your household. 

Board & Train

MK9A Kentucky offers 2 week and 4 week board and train programs.

Both programs focus on creating a solid foundation of basic commands, applying them to create a new and balanced lifestyle, and establishing consistency to expectations and training.


Private Lessons

With our 1 on 1 private training lessons, our professional balanced trainers can address a variety of issues such as common basic obedience commands, jumping, counter surfing, barging through the door, and any other manners you want to establish with your dog.

Our private lessons are completely customizable to your dog and lifestyle! We work with you to come up with a training goal and then implement it!
