We all know that a well trained dog is a happy dog! Group classes are crucial in training your dog to be comfortable and well behaved in a group setting, among other dogs, people and distractions. Group classes are fun, interactive and educational. These classes are geared toward reliable distance and eventually off leash obedience.
These 6-week courses will address obedience, behavior issues and socialization. Each group class meets for approximately 1 hour per week. Puppies must be 16 weeks old and be up to date on their vaccinations to start the Level I class.
Classes are sometimes cancelled due to the weather, holidays or schedule changes. Weather cancellations (raining or poor AQI) will be done 1-hour prior to class. Please note that class start dates might change because of weather cancellations. Check in to be certain of the date! Please call or text 408-205-8251 for class update. If you have missed a class, please text my cell to reschedule.
The KeenKNineTraining Instagram and Facebook pages will be updated with this information as well.
Due to COVID-19 we are asking that everyone practice social distancing. Please remain home if you feel unwell and/or have a fever. Any classes missed can be made up in another session. We will continue to monitor the Santa Clara County health guidelines and may update our safety procedures as recommended.

I Love Dogs, and Training Them!
A $75 evaluation fee is required to visit your home and discuss the issues you are experiencing with your dog. We will establish goals and what you can expect from training. When you sign up and pay for training during the evaluation, this paid fee will be applied to the purchase price.
Private lessons are the most effective way to address behavior issues and build that working relationship with your dog. Together, you will establish goals and work one on one to achieve those goals and alleviate unwanted behaviors.
Single lesson $165
Four lessons $600

Custom Packages available upon request
Private lessons will begin in your home and neighborhood. We will then progress to meeting in public downtown areas to introduce more unexpected circumstances and distractions for your dogs. I am the guide, you are the teacher, and your dog is the student. Each lesson is approximately 45 minutes, once per week for the duration of your selected package.
Training methods do not rely on food, although treats may be used intermittently. The primary reward is verbal praise and physical affection.
