At All Around K9 Training, we focus on improving the relationships between dogs and their owners by teaching effective communication techniques. We believe in balanced training techniques to achieve that goal. We will provide you with all of the training tools and knowledge you need to succeed!

We tailor the training to your situation. That way, we can focus on the specific goals that you have for your dog. The basics of our approach include structure and discipline. Then, we teach you how to incorporate everything into your daily life. Once dogs have a clear understanding of what is expected of them, they can thrive!

While it is no doubt important to work on your dog’s confidence, we have found that it is just as essential to work on the other end of the leash. You, as a handler, play an integral part in your dog’s success. While dogs are incredibly intelligent and intuitive, they still require regular maintenance and reinforcement of commands. This is why one of our primary goals is to spend the extra time with you teaching you how to work with your dog.

Dogs are just as varied as people when it comes to personality! A one size fits all approach doesn’t work when it comes to behavioral modification. We strive to show you how to interpret your dog’s needs and how to meet them successfully. For instance, if one of your complaints is that your dog excessively barks, it is first necessary to determine the root cause of that barking. In some dogs, the reason is excitement, while in others, it is a symptom of fear. By dealing with the underlying issue, we can help alleviate the barking!

My 60 pound Standard Aussie Shepherd had no respect. Two week board and train was more than I ever expected. Not only was I apart of the training, but I left with the education I needed and lifelong guidance from professionals that know what they’re talking about. I felt supported throughout the entire experience and still get asked for updates from Tara and her amazing team, (my trainer) Eva. Thanks to Tara, Eva and the team at All Around K9 Training, I came home with a dog that was 100% changed for the better. The two week board and train not only made me a more responsible dog owner, but greatly improved my relationship with my dog, Jet. I now have the tools to move forward with a working line breed. I can not recommend All Around K9 Training enough. I will be continuing to work with Tara and Eva for as long as possible! I can’t say enough good things about my trainer Eva! Eva and Tara have been so patient with me blowing up their phones with my incessant questions and concerns. Jet and I have so much more to learn and I can’t wait to continue working with these amazingly accomplished professionals.Tania Haj AliMarch 7, 2023
Absolutely worth every penny. Gary and Tara did a great job with my boy Niko. We are very pleased with how his training went. We have a 3 year old American Bully and we recently had a baby. He has always been a good dog but lacked structure, which is our fault. We did the 2 week board and train and it was fantastic. We did lesson at their property and every session we could see Nikos improvements. I would highly recommend All Around K9 Training to anyone. Especially if you have a powerhouse breed like we do. The end result is a happy home life with our pups and new baby, and we made good friends in the process. If I could give it 10 stars I would. I’m looking forward to sending our Aussie puppy to them next. Once again, worth every penny.Stuart BrownMarch 5, 2023
Many thanks to All Around K9 Training for helping us take our good boy Beau’s obedience to the next level! He’s a great dog that had become fear-reactive around other dogs after being attacked at a dog park and then under-socialized. But after completing a training program here and teaching me how to improve my handling skills, he’s been around even dozens of dogs with no issues. I can take him anywhere now! Thank you for helping us work through and overcome Beau’s fears, so he can live his best life!Angelica WedellMarch 4, 2023
This place was amazing. My dog is so much better and listens. The best part is they gave me all the tools to be a better dog owner!Jaime GallardoFebruary 28, 2023
Brought my girl friends Basset hound and my Labrador. They trained my lab from day 1 and he is amazing, super obedient and ready to be off leash. My gfs basset had lots of problems and anxiety, he is now very confident and ready to take on the world. I drove 12 hours for these guys and I would do it again in a heart beat.Jaime GallardoFebruary 24, 2023
We are beyond pleased with All Around K9 Training. We felt like we were where we were supposed to be. From the initial consultation to Gunners last training, we got more than I could have imagined. Gunner absolutely loved his training time with Gary. Gunner’s confidence has improved tremendously. He is such a well behaved and obedient dog. A million “Thank you’s” to Gary and Tara. I look forward to continuing to be involved with All Around K9 Training.Dina EspinozaFebruary 21, 2023
All Around K9 trained both our dogs and us also, to be better dog parents. It the best way to have all-around happy and cooperative relationships...stress free, perfectly executed, with gentle firmness. We are amazed at the calmness and peace we all have now. I wish all loving pet parents could have the same awesome experience. I recommend checking out these professionals for guidance and help before having difficulties or incidents. AND, they offer monthly maintenance walks to help with developmental stages, reinforcements or other needs as they may arise. This is exceptional trainer-care and lots of fun too.Jayne BradleyFebruary 12, 2023
We are beyond grateful for all the hard work and attention that Jason put into our Betty. We dropped off a rambunctious, 8 month old puppy and picked up a well mannered obedient puppy. She is no longer herding her sister “shit zue” into her crate, no more jumping or pulling on a leash. She will stay in place when in public, so I can shop and check out. She also comes when we call her and has amazing door manners, which is huge bc I was worried every-time the door opened. We highly recommend every dog owner invest in their dogs future.Heather WoodsFebruary 11, 2023
For Christmas I adopted two puppies from the shelter for my kids. As a first time dog owner I was excited to have two new fur babies. That excitement quickly turned into fear as I learned I had adopted Belgian Malinois. After calling around to different dog trainers and being told, “oh no you should take them back to the shelter, no one would blame you”. I was loaded with fear and felt like I made the worst decision. My last call was to All Around K9 Training. I spoke with Gary who took his time to educate me about Belgian Mals and his extensive K9 training inside and outside of the military. I felt sooooo much better after speaking with Gary. Immediately set up training sessions for each pup, Tara was very informative and worked with my budget for each dog to go through one week of boarding on the leash training. I never had to worry about my fur babies being gone because I knew they were in good hands. My kids and I looked forward to receiving daily text updates on their progress with pictures and videos. Jason and Josh trained both my puppies and they did an amazing job, not only with the dogs but with people training. My kids and I would visit for a mid week checkin to make sure we were comfortable with the commands and how to properly correct behavior. Even after training ended I was never alone. Gary and his team call to checkin, and were ready to help with anything I needed. I highly, highly recommend All Around K9 Training!!!Tawana LeakFebruary 11, 2023
I highly recommend All Around K9 training. Last year I adopted my five-month-old puppy, Evie. It quickly became apparent that the quiet, little pup I saw in the shelter was actually a high-energy, destructive, wild child, intent on teething on me and anything else she could sink her puppy teeth into. I needed help... bad. After one conversation with Tara, I knew she was the one to help us. She explained her training methods and philosophy, and I felt really comfortable with her knowledge and genuine love for animals. I opted to do private lessons where Tara trained us, (yes, I had to learn the basics as much as Evie). But it was more than just learning how to give sit, and stay commands, Tara taught me how to understand and communicate with my dog. In addition to private lessons, I have taken advantage of the monthly Maintenance Walks (group meet-ups) that they offer. I really appreciate this option for ongoing support to work on training issues that may arise. I also use their boarding services frequently, which I really love because I know Evie is well cared for, and her training is reinforced each time she is there. Now at a year old, Evie is a socialized, obedient pup, who gets constant compliments on how well-behaved she is. I can’t say enough about Tara, Gary, and the rest of the staff; working with them was the best decision I could have made.Georganne HernandezFebruary 1, 2023
