Creating the Best Life for You and Your Dog

Bringing a new dog home is an exciting time for every family, whether you’re a veteran dog owner or have never had a pet before. You want a life with your dog to be the best life possible, but training your new addition can quickly start to feel like you’ve bitten off more than you can chew. 

At K9 Role Models, we change the lives of our clients and their pets with our functional training results and reliability in any situation. Our programs teach you how to build a happy, healthy relationship with your dog so your dog is an easy-to-manage companion that fits comfortably into your family and your lifestyle.

What Clients Say

“We receive compliments everywhere we go and my husband and I look at each other and say thank you Vanessa, and
thank you K9 Role Models!“
“We were referred to Vanessa from a friend and we couldn’t be happier!  K9 Role Models is a professional business that is dependable, caring and knowledgeable. Their approach was to get to know us as well as Daisy. We learned so much!!!  You have to follow through with at home training and the reward is walking your dog on the rail trail or through a store, off leash and in control!  We receive compliments everywhere we go and my husband and I look at each other and say thank you Vanessa and thank you K9 Role Models!”

Ready to transform your dog into a
K9 Role Model?

Dog Training at its Best

We pride ourselves on our ability to transform your companion into a canine model citizen.

Continued Support Once
the Program is Complete

Unlike most big dog training companies, K9 Role Models offers phone or text support for you, as well as maintenance training sessions for your dog long after your program has ended to ensure you always have the confidence your pup doesn’t forget all the good things they learned in training.

Obedience Training with
Consistent Results Fast

Our methods have proven time and again to produce not only​ results; but consistent results in a shorter period of time than other programs out there. Start enjoying life with your dog, without spending hours and hours in a training facility.

Training With a Personal Touch

We help you as the dog owner understand the WHY behind our training methods. While other dog training programs teach you the commands, the knowledge we impart is key to better understanding your dog and having the confidence to handle them in any situation, even if it’s one you haven’t encountered before.

Genuine Love for Your Dog

Our mission is to help YOUR dog be the best fur family member they can be. We take the time to create pinpoint training so you know that you're investing in training that fits your dog’s specific needs.

Functional Obedience
Beyond the Fundamentals

Franchise dog training companies can teach your dog some basic obedience fundamentals, but they don’t always address specific behavior corrections and their methods aren’t known for long-term results. Our training methods tailored to your dog, allow us to help you correct unwanted behaviors with lasting effect so you know you have a well-mannered pup no matter where you go.
