  1. What is the minimum stay for boot camp training to be beneficial?
    We offer stays from as short as 1 week up to 4 weeks. Come in for a free evaluation with our trainer to discuss your dog’s personalized training needs before you book your pooch in.
  2. I have a sensitive and fearful dog. Can boarding and training help us?
    We follow a compassionate, sensible and effective approach in our behavioral training. First step is to understand the behavior and read their body language. Then we manage the unwanted behavior using positive reinforcement.
  3. Can I visit my dog during the training?
    We advise owners not to visit their dogs during training as it can interfere with the bond they’re developing with their trainer. The training given with ‘Board and Train’ is facilitated by our expert trainers and designed to assist your dog’s learning without you being present.
  4. What do you need to confirm my dog’s vaccinations are current?
    To safeguard the health and well-being of all K9U students, you must bring copies of your dog’s Distemper/Parvo, Rabies and Bordetella vaccinations to the first class.

Why Our Clients Love Us

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.
I was referred by a previous customer. I had never used a daycare before and my experience has been wonderful since day ONE! The staff is friendly, welcoming and attentive to my dog (and me…LOL)…She loves going there.Tracee A.
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.
I’ve been a customer for 15 years and counting. K9 helped us raise our puppies and cherish our old girls. I can think of no other place I would trust more with my furry family.Jonathan A.
This is really awesome dog place. We had a basic obedience training here, and our dog is changed! She listens now, and behaving well, our trainer is really good - she is like a dog whisperer. Love and recommend this place for all dog parents out there.Yessie S.
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.
