About Us

Sandy Pope
Owner, Trainer
 My interest in training started with my first Doberman.   Owning a Doberman was and remains a serious responsibility to me.   They are my largest pleasure in life, next to my two legged family.
Started training as a hobby and competing in various sports in 1995.  What a wonderful time in my life.  Finding what I truly loved to do.  After several years I decided to work with the public and opened AK9 in 2001.
My goal everyday is to make a positive effect in peoples lives.   Sharing my skills of training with others is so rewarding.  Improving the relationship between a owner and their pet is huge.  If you have ever truly loved an animal then you understand.
