Basic Obedience Training for Dogs and Handlers

When their best behavior could be better

Basic Obedience Training for dogs and handlers who need to start at the beginning, this class teaches the basic skills: sit, down, stand, stay, come, watch, touch and leave it while exploring the use of markers in training. The handler learns how basic cues can help with good manners and proper leash walking. Designed for dogs five months and older, this class will provide the handler and dog a foundation for further learning.

Dog Basic obedience training as well as puppy training is a matter of equipping your dog with the skills he or she needs to be successful in your life. We shape basic desired behaviors for a happy, well mannered, and healthy dog.

If you are looking for more advanced training, please check our Intermediate Dog Obedience Training class. If you’re looking to start your puppy off on the road to good obedience, start with our Puppy Training (for dog up to 6 months of age).

Dog Trainer

Yazmin Lopez

My name is Yazmin,

I was born and raised in Monterrey, Mexico.

Since I was a child I have always loved dogs and becoming a dog trainer now is like a dream come true.

My duty as a trainer is to not only build a strong bond between owners and their pets, but to educate them on the method of positive reinforcement training and behavior modification. This is my way of contributing a little to society by making dogs great furry family members.

In addition to my contribution to society, I volunteered for two years in Nuevo León, Mexico for an animal shelter. My experience also extends to agility training.

My husband and I founded a pet care and BARF food company back home in Mexico. We live, breath, and sleep dogs and dedicated our lives to making the world a better place by training these extraordinary animals.

Why Our Clients Love Us

K9U is great. They offer classes as well as day camp /sitting services. The size of the location is pretty impressive, as they have a large indoor and outdoor areas for dogs to play. (They even pick up and drop off your dog.). The staff and trainers are very friendly and extremely effective.James J.
K9 University is great. We’ve been going there for 7 and a half years. We’ve done training, we’ve done agility, we’ve done boarding and we’ve done daycare. The only thing we haven’t done is a drop off and pick up. My dog is kind of a nut and they deal with her well. Debbie W.
My dog has experienced everything at K9U: daycare, classes and boarding. When he is either picked up by the K9U van or dropped off his tail is wagging like crazy. When I pick him up he is happy to see me, goes outside to relieve himself and then pulls to go back in. Jane F.
