By introducing your dog to both juvenile and adult LIVE, SAFELY-MUZZLED rattlesnakes of the species found in your area, our trainers will use a remote training collar to provide a perfectly-timed low-level stimulation that your dog will associate with the rattlesnake. This will effectively enable your dog to detect the sights, sounds and smells of rattlesnakes and create the reflex for your dog to quickly move away and avoid them. Both your dog’s physical safety and also mental well-being are TOP priority; the trainers always start with the lowest stimulation level and will tailor each dog’s training session to meet their individual psychological needs. The snakes are all safely and humanely muzzled and equal consideration is put into their well-being also.

Any breed or size dog will benefit from this training. With our process, we have successfully trained dogs as large as Mastiffs and Great Danes, to as small as Teacup Maltese and Chihuahuas. We generally recommend dogs be at least 6 months old prior to training so that they are developmentally mature enough to make the correct associations. That being said, different breeds and even individuals mature at different rates so we will evaluate young dogs 5-8 months old on the day to make sure prior to training.

I used a different trainer before coming to K-Nine to Solutions, BIG mistake. I am so happy I decided to invest in our dog, Luna's happiness and future by using K-Nine Solutions. We have done 1v1 training with Eric and he has so much knowledge about our dog, she is a Malinois. Every one is really nice and knows so much about what it takes to be the best dog owners. K-Nine Solutions are balanced trainers, not "yank and crank", which is very important to me. I think we will be clients for life, I cannot say enough positive things about this place and the people who work here.

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
