Dog Training in South Jersey

5 01 2018

Buddy is one of our board and trains that just went home.  He was put into the board and train program after mom and dad struggled with him in group class.  Buddy would excessively bark and go after other dogs.  Once we took mom and dad out of the picture we saw a change in some of his behaviors.  Some of the problems we were still having and the most important one the parents wanted to get rid of…..excessive barking.  After changing a few things Buddy became a different dog.

  • Increased food
  • Treadmill daily
  • LOTS of proper training
  • LOTS of Socialization with other dogs

The difference in him is amazing.  Even our group clients noticed the difference in him.  One of his last days with us he was socializing with our pack and one of our other board and trains (that he tried attacking when he first arrived).  He did excellent, actually tried playing with a few dogs as well.  It’s amazing how a few simple things can change a dog’s life!





What Time and Proper Training Will Do

26 12 2017

It’s amazing how much you can learn from a dog.  Almost every dog that comes in you learn something new.  The latest one is Lucky.  Lucky was dropped off for the board and train program.  I knew that he was going to take a little longer than the average dog.  He was extremely nervous and pretty much fearful of his own shadow.  He looked like a deer in headlights all the time.  His reaction was to always run away when he was scared.  The problem was he was on a leash.  So he would try to run but hit the end of the line then begin to freak out, crying, and biting the leash.

The first few days he didn’t have much obedience work it was mostly behavioral.  I needed him to just relax.  It seemed so simple in my eyes but in his it was the end of the world.  It has taken about a week now and he is already a different dog.  He still has a long way to go but I’m extremely happy with his progress.  His obedience is finally starting to come along.  At times you can see how proud he is of himself as he sits on a place board with a big smile on his face!  When he has his moments of freaking out on the leash I take that as me pushing him too hard too fast.

I thought that I had patience when it came to working with the dogs.  Lucky has opened my eyes even more.  There is no such thing as “taking too long” when it comes to dogs.  Each dog is different and unique.  I’m so glad that Lucky found his way to K9 Basics Dog Training.  He has made a forever place in my heart!





Holiday Time with Santa

22 12 2017

Happy Holidays everyone! Yesterday was picture day with Santa at k9 basics dog training. I can’ t wait to see how my picture came out. My mom did not want to be in the picture with me but some of the other trainers sat with their dogs and Santa. Some of my friends even had their entire family in the picture and are going to use the pictures as Christmas cards! Even though we spend lots of time training (me and all the other dogs) there is always something fun in the works at k9 basics. We are also collecting stuff for the shelter pets – so if you can please bring us your donations of dog food, blankets, toys, paper towels or anything else that will make the holidays a little more comfortable for my homeless friends. Thanks!





Controlling your dog

15 12 2017

A good dog trainer understands that teaching a command is the easiest part of his/her job. Getting your dog to maintain the command and then be able to maintain the command in any distraction is the key.

Your dog lives in the real world and it’s full of distractions.  We want you to be able to handle and maintain control of your dog regardless of any distraction or environment because we train all clients’ dogs in distractions.

We create and control distractions that creates the platform for your dog to learn.





Dog Training South Jersey

4 10 2007

By teaching your dog the behavior you prefer, she learns how to work for your attention in a productive manner, rather than in a mischievous one.  Our training classes include:

* Basic Obedience

* Problem solving

* Behavior Modification

* Puppy Preschool

* Basic Agility

* Pet CPR/First Aid.

Your dog lives for your attention; it is your choice how she gets it from you.  Dogs need mental stimulation, an outlet for their energy, and a sense of accomplishment. Instead of blaming your dog, give him/her, a purpose in life, an activity, some work!  Challenging your dog’s mind and body will help fulfill these needs, allowing your dog to become the relaxed, calm, attentive and dog you want.

PEOPLE ARE TALKING…

“… the best trained dog we ever owned!”

“… I came to appreciate just how high quality your training really is…”

“I highly recommend K9 Basics to everyone I meet…”

“…a simple thank you is just not enough.”

“They are a group of experienced professionals and they treat your dog like it was their own.”

“…want to THANK everyone at K-9 Basics, you all are great and it shows that you really want the dogs and owners to succeed.”
