We specialize in training working breeds, not just German Shepherds. From Labradors to Newfoundlands and every breed in between. AFK9 is dedicated to providing top quality training and resources to it’s customers. All breeds welcome!
Unlike traditional dog training, we take time to train owners as well as the dogs. Interactive learning encourages the dog to respond to its handler instead of a trainer. This forces the transfer of learned behavior and ultimately leading to a very productive lesson.
Group classes offer a unique experience for the dog and their owners. Engaging in learning under distraction gives our k9 team the optimum training experience while having fun and meeting other dog owners in the process.
