Santa Barbara Dog Training, Boarding & Daycare


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.

Santa Barbara Dog Training, Boarding & Daycare Services

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.

Day Care

Day Care K-Nine Solutions Santa BarbaraThe K-Nine Solutions Ranch is in beautiful Santa Ynez California surrounded by picturesque mountains, rolling hills and wide-open spaces! It’s a great place, where a “dog can be a dog!” The K-Nine ranch is known for its caring, experienced staff, and outstanding customer service. We follow an “open pack” concept with plenty of indoor and outdoor areas for dogs to play, socialize, learn and relax.


Boarding K-Nine Solutions Santa BarbaraBoarding dogs, like daycare dogs, get full access to the play yards all day. Boarding accommodations include private kennels in well ventilated, heated rooms complete with comfy beds and fresh linens. The K-Nine Ranch accepts long-term and short-term boarding requests and a staff member is on site 24 hours a day, 7 days a week. Training walks and other services may be added to a standard boarding stay if clients would like to keep their dog sharp and consistent with their rules and commands.

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).
