Based in Orange County, the K9 Mentor offers a no nonsense and easy approach to dog training. With 1 lesson, in your home, you will understand the way to become the leader of your dog and gain knowledge on how to effectively communicate.


Follow the rules of Structure, Leadership and Boundaries to make training easy. Treat your dog like a dog and he will treat you like a human. Dogs are more simple than you think so don't complicate it. 

A positive approach to teaching your dog what you want and rewarding him when he offers those behaviors. Consistency is a key factor in getting the conditioned results. 

"If nothing changes then nothing changes"

1 lesson for approximately 2.5 to 3 hours at your home.

First, teaching you the rules of Structure, Leadership, and Boundaries and understanding how dogs learn.

Second we use hands on techniques with your dog to show how it works. Leash pressure, space, and hand signals

Finally the homework will provide the tools to follow through with training on your own at home.


YES, we have a GUARANTEE! 

We guarantee that we will train you, and your dog, and that the techniques will work.

If you need a 2nd lesson your trainer will come back a 2nd time within 30 days of your original lesson and help you implement the techniques.

If you implement the rules, you don't need a 3nd lesson.

It is important that owners knows they have complete control of the outcome of their results. They have to follow a plan.
