About Us Best of Santa Barbara K-Nine Solutions
About Us Veteran Owned K-Nine Solutions

In 2014, Eric Smith formed the dog training company, K Nine Solutions in Santa Barbara, with the intention of training and helping as many owners and dogs as possible. Their motto is “Any Dog, Any Age, Any Problem” and they mean it.

K Nine Solutions practices a training philosophy that is built upon the art of leadership, positive reward and reinforcement which some in the dog training world call “Balanced Training”.

At K Nine Solutions the goal is to educate and help people understand better ways to live their life with the chosen dog for them. The team at K Nine Solutions successfully show owners how to cope with things by slowing down and going back to the basics of relationship, engagement, and management which, in turn, often changes the tide for them and their dog.

Would highly recommend for anyone who takes living with/caring for their dog seriously. They worked with my dog for three weeks and I started seeing results pretty quickly. They were great about communicating with me and making sure I understood the strategies they implemented during the training so I could continue to work successfully with my dog at home...

COVID-19 APPROPRIATE SERVICES

Dear K-Nine Clients,

We have closed the training facility to private lessons temporarily due to the COVID-19 outbreak. However, we are still open and doing business online and off-site. The changes surrounding this public health situation have come at us all very rapidly and we are doing our best to adapt and overcome the challenges we are all facing. We wish to thank you in advance for your patience with us as we work to re-schedule and switch our business model to one that practices Social Distancing and takes advantage of self-quarantine. So, for the time being, all in-person transfer sessions and 1 on 1 appointments are going to be held via Zoom.

We are going to be offering some new services that should accommodate many of your other needs. See below for details. As always, you are free to call, Instant Message, Text or email us with any questions, for help you may need with your dog. Please keep an eye on your email for updates and details on how to access our services.

We thank you in advance for your understanding and consideration and look forward to being able to continue to serve you.

With much gratitude ~ Eric
