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 family and I have been incredibly grateful and impressed by All Around K9 Training. We have had 3 of our dogs go through their training and they’ve gained so much confidence and obedience. Our dogs went in with issues such as biting, pulling on the leash, not being potty trained, and being afraid of the world. And they came back no longer biting, knowing how to heel, using the restroom outside and being noticeably more confident. We were also given the tools to know how to continue the training and that gave us confidence as well. We are forever thankful!!Amber LongoriaJune 7, 2024

My pups are so happy after a tune up with Tara and Gary! These two dogs used to be an almost uncontrollable handful, but after training at AAK-9 we can take them almost anywhere! We take them to the Pearl and other dog friendly places and they do great! Thanks! Guys!Debbie MastersJune 6, 2024
All Around K9 Training has trained 3 of our dogs from puppy to adult and they are amazing!! They are amazing people and treat their dogs with upmost care. They will not leave you without great results!Ryan LongoriaJune 6, 2024
Tara and Gary were super friendly and knowledgeable regarding everything about dogs! We had a home visit to assess how we could proceed…train 1 dog or all 5 of them. I decided to begin with Margaret, and use the new knowledge to get the others in order. Tara met with us at various places to maximize each training session. She helped Margaret increase her confidence and explore more of her surroundings, in addition to some basic commands. I loved the experience and genuinely enjoyed both of them! Would definitely recommend for a personalized training experience!Sherry HernandezApril 15, 2024
Super grateful for this team. Tara has had so much patience with me & our pup (husky 9mo) during training sessions. He can be stubborn & Tara has been amazing in giving me the tools to keep him engaged. Thanks to her I've gained so much more confidence in the way I communicate with him & bond with him. Cannot wait to continue learning & gaining that ability to keep him engaged.H DApril 3, 2024
Our Fur Princess exclusively board at All Around K-9. She loves it and so do we. She comes home happy, well-exercised, and most of all with advancements in her obedience!Zenobia MuhammadApril 2, 2024
I am a first-time pet owner, I adopted Mia who lived at the shelter practically all her life. What a match, correct? I knew I would need training, as well as Mia (according to the shelter, she had some dog aggression, and was escape artist). I research on how to be best pet owner via TV Shows, You-Tube, etc. Then I started searching for where I would get the type a training that would incorporate Mia and myself. As you can expect, there were many that offer various type of training. I reached out to two or three, I reviewed their websites and any all their contents they provided. I stumble across ‘About All Around K9 Training,’ while making appointment with another business. I was truly impressed with Tara & Gary backgrounds, reviews & videos. Then I had conversation with Tara on 1 Jan, yes, New Years Day for about 45 min and I was sold. Tara was such a down to earth person, who ‘listen’ and ‘heard’ my concerns & what I was looking for in a dog, as well as I how I desire to be best dog owner for Mia. Mia was signed up for the ‘Two-week board and train,’ when Mia returned from those two weeks, she was such different dog (i.e., in a walk). Then I receive my training and homework, which I was excited and anxious all in one. It’s now been 3-months, don’t get me wrong Mia is still temperamental & ornery at times; Gary would call it ‘street cred,’ even with that Mia knows who’s the Alpha 😊. I have attended additional training/maintenance training with Tara which are awesome because it reinforces the previous training provided. I am so glad; I stumble across Tara & Gary! The training works if both of you and your pet are willing to do the work. Thank you!!Gidget WMarch 7, 2024
After reviewing a number of trainers, I couldn't be happier with choosing All Around K9 Training. I chose the Basic Obedience Course to learn to be a better owner / handler and build a relationship with Pepper, my four (4) month old Blue Heeler mix. We completed our Basic Obedience Course on 2/26/2024 and I couldn't be happier with our progress. Tara was our primary trainer and I couldn't have asked for someone more supportive and responsive to my questions. I highly recommend All Around K9 Training to enhance your relationship with your dog and we’re looking forward to the Advanced Obedience Course.J NFebruary 29, 2024
This was the best possible thing we could’ve done for our dog Ryder. Ryder went for almost 3 weeks to board and train. He was extremely fear aggressive and reactive. Tara started off the first night with us and showed us how to give Ryder proper corrections. Ryder moved mostly to working with Gary after that due to how reactive he was. Ryder was reactive to dogs and people. He barked at every dog he saw, and he went ballistic when he met new people in his home, in the dog park, or around us. Gary not only taught Ryder what was acceptable and unacceptable, but he, also, taught us what is acceptable and unacceptable from our dog. He taught Ryder what the pressure of the leash means whether he wants him to sit, heel, down, etc. He taught stability to Ryder in holding sit, down, or place for various amounts of time. He socialized Ryder to new people at their facility and in public, and he socialized him to dogs and all sorts of farm animals to get exposure. He taught Ryder how to be neutral in situations and gave him corrections if he wasn’t. He taught us how to use e-collar and commands using our pitch, tone, and inflection to make sure Ryder obeyed and to give him encouragement when he did. Ryder got exposure to using a muzzle consistently to make sure variables are controlled in public and around new situations. We now know how to introduce Ryder to people, and we know how to give him a job to make sure he is obeying and productive with his day. We now have the keys to success with him that we never would’ve understood without Gary’s help. It really is night and day the difference between Ryder three weeks ago and Ryder now. He obeys, he holds commands, and his reactiveness has been lowered significantly. When he does react, we now have the tools and knowledge to correct him immediately, and he responds so well to that. He still needs consistent socialization, but he has been taught what is acceptable and unacceptable. We get to continue to teach him that and continue to help him grow in his new skills. We are SOOO grateful for All Around K9 Training. We truly didn’t know where to begin with Ryder, and they equipped all of us for success.Bailey ArdFebruary 26, 2024
