Main objective of Basic Obedience is to build reliable
communication skills between dog and handler

K9 Instincts offers several program options for our clients and their dogs. We will always begin with a free over-the-phone "pre-meeting" in order to gather some basic information from you in regards to your particular, unique situation. We understand every dog and every owner is different, so we listen to your issues, your goals and expectations and then offer you our professional recommendation based upon the information you have provided. Please call us for further details on any or all of the programs listed below.
