Dog Training

Dog Training K-Nine Solutions Santa BarbaraGo beyond your typical “Big Chain” puppy class with our AKC Star Puppy curriculum. Our certified puppy training classes teach you how to best communicate with your puppy in a positive fun way, and organized social hours provide an opportunity for your dog to socialize with other dogs outside of the group class environment. Our classes are aimed at earning the AKC S.T.A.R. Puppy Certification.

Pack Walks

Pack Walks K-Nine Solutions Santa BarbaraJoin us every Saturday morning for our weekly pack walk! They are a great way to socialize your dog and get them used to being around other dogs in a structured and controlled environment. You will learn how to do our “Focused Walk” and we will stop at various times along the way to practice our obedience skills under heavy distraction.

These walks take place at various locations in and around Santa Barbara, so stay tuned to our Meetup Group for more information, For those of you that have not trained with us, you are still welcome on the walks, but an initial evaluation will be required (By appointment only).

Important Announcements


By K-Nine Solutions on Mar 27, 2020 in in Important Announcement

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
