For Puppies (8 weeks to 12 months)
Puppies are supposed to be cute and fun 100% of the time, right? Well, they aren’t always!
And all the things you’re hoping they grow out of… we can help you with those things now. That way you can have a puppy that grows up happily listening to you rather than blowing you off and creating bad habits
You might have already tried training your puppy yourself, or in a distracting group class, only to be left with a bunch of unanswered questions and conflicting information. Maybe the classes don’t fit into your schedule, or your puppy isn’t socializing well, leaving you embarrassed and frustrated?
Well, we have the solution! We’ll help you 1-on-1 with your new puppy so you learn everything you need to know, right from the start for your specific dog and we’ll offer you a flexible schedule for classes. You will get the guidance and support you need and your dog will get the education and socialization they need!
We’ll help you house/crate train your dog (no more accidents or chewing up your favorite things), and show you the best ways to teach things like sit, lay down, go to your bed, come, walk on a loose leash, as well as stopping any annoying behaviors like incessant barking, painful play-biting and jumping on people.
Our puppy programs start you off on the right foot so you can continue your dog’s “grown up” training later with a huge head start.

AKC STAR Puppy Certificate and Medal
Go 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 time via our exclusive PAL program to 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 (Those with AKC registration will earn a Title). During the class, you'll be able to get information on all of your puppy-raising questions including housetraining, chewing, and the most effective way to teach practical skills such as Sit, Down, Place, Stand, Come and walking on a leash. We will also work on increasing attention, focus and duration (Impulse control for dogs). AKC S.T.A.R. Puppy training is a natural lead in to our Basic Obedience and the AKC® Canine Good Citizen® Program.
Cost for program: $850.00
Play and Learn - Socialization and Training for puppies! (8 weeks to 12 months, depending on size & temperament)
K-Nine Solutions is breaking ground again with its new PAL program (Play and Learn) for puppies! We offer weekday drop-off puppy socialization and training that goes beyond the typical on-leash style group training class. It’s a science-based training approach founded on the principles of positive reinforcement and proper socialization.
In this innovative approach, we actively socialize, train, and condition puppies during this very short but critical developmental phase so they will learn to become well-adjusted as adult dogs. Your puppy will spend PAL school time supervised by our trainers who will work on basic manners/obedience, proper social skills with both humans and other dogs, as well as working on housebreaking and crate training. With a maximum of 15 dogs per session, we ensure your dog will get the personalized attention it deserves.
At PAL, your puppy will engage in supervised group play as well as work with our trainers on:
- Confidence-building and socialization skills
- Handling and conditioning with distraction
- Crate training/Potty training
- Basic commands like Sit, Down, Place, as well as recall
Included with these sessions, you will receive a PDF copy of our exclusive, 45-page Puppy Handbook. This is the same handbook we give to all clients who purchase our private lesson package.
You will also have exclusive access to our Trainers for questions and tips while your dog is enrolled and will receive a verbal debriefing about your pup's day upon pick-up, as well as a daily report card. And don't forget to check out our Instagram and Facebook Stories each day for photos of videos of the day's activities in PAL!
PAL is available Monday through Friday from 8:30 AM until 1:00 PM. Call now to reserve your spot!
