Our Training Philosophy
At 3K9 Working Dogs we know each dog is as unique as the tasks they will perform. Because of this, we provide a personalized training plan for each working team. We spend time getting to know the handler and their specific needs before training begins so we can place the best, most qualified dog to meet the handler needs.
A happy dog will always provide better results when working, this is why we use positive reinforcement, operant conditioning and engagement training to ensure our dogs are not only reliable, but enjoy the work they do. Extensive knowledge and training in animal behavior and psychology guide our methods, and are at the core of each of our training programs.
We constantly are attending training conferences and doing course work to advance our trainers and develop new skills.
