Dog Training

K9 Cleveland offers many dog training options: from small group classes for you and your dog, to more intensive day training and board-and-train options.

Day Training at K9 Cleveland

Day training includes intensive one-on-one training with your dog and a professional trainer from North Coast Dogs, as well as a full day of care during which our staff also work with your dog as part of the larger pack. Day training can begin any time after 6am, but between 5pm and 7pm is when the trainer works with your dog exclusively. Cost is $50 for the daycare and training combo. Contact us for details and availability.


Board-and-Train at K9 Cleveland

Our Board-and-Train program runs for six days (Sunday through Friday) and includes intensive one-on-one training in partnership with North Coast Dogs, overnight boarding at K9 Cleveland, dog daycare during the day, a free collar, and a dog bath as well. The cost for this program is $900. Contact us for more details and to make a reservation.

Dog Training Course: Foundation Group Class

Description: This is an excellent beginner group clicker class for dogs and their human companions. Certainly, it's always the right time to learn! The focus is on building a strong human-canine bond, socialization, solving common challenges, and preventing basic problem behaviors. Humans learn solid training theory while pups learn beginning "sit," "down," "come," walking on leash, "stay", and appropriate socialization. You'll also learn how to prepare your pup for basic grooming and vet visits. While this is a well rounded class, be ready for lots of fun and games too! (See below for more details and the course syllabus.)
