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 how to become the leader of your dog and gain knowledge for effectively communicating in a way that your dog understands.


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

A positive approach to training. 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 if your dog is choosing bad behaviors or ignoring you. Rules and consistency are key factors in getting the conditioned results.
