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


Follow the rules of Structure, Leadership and Boundaries to make training easy. The dog owners need to understand the principles and apply the methods to see changes in the dog. If you want your dog to change you will have to change.

A positive approach to teaching your dog what you want and then rewarding him when he offers those behaviors. Corrections are introduced when your dog does not follow the commands you have taught or your dog is choosing unwanted behaviors or ignoring you. Rules and consistency are key factors in getting the conditioned results.
