Classes: Our Approach to Dog Training

How we teach you and your dog to succeed

You may ask why North Edge K9 doesn’t offer a “menu” of various classes for different needs and wants to choose from, or why we don’t advertise any particular training method.

The answer is simple: we don't provide cookie cutter classes. Every dog, every circumstance, every owner, and every goal is different. Our training philosophy emphasizes teaching and empowering YOU, by providing you with the knowledge, understanding, and tools you need to work with your individual dog. Our training is entirely dependent on your dog's temperament, drives, responses, conformation, and environment—as well as your long-term goals.

A strong foundation

Just as if we were building a house, it’s important to start with a strong foundation, adding each additional component at the right time and in the proper sequence.

Successful training requires a unique blueprint for each dog that remains flexible and offers continuous adjustments based on custom-tailored, feedback-guided direction. We typically generate a customized training plan and emphasize state of mind in our training—both yours and your canine partner's.

Building success

We strive to get you where you want to be in the most effective and efficient way, particularly if your dog shows unwanted problem behaviors. We love nothing more than enabling and nurturing your own ability to lift both yourself and your dog by providing the tools and knowledge you need. First and foremost, we want to set you up for success!
