Out of My Area?
If you live outside my service area, I may be available to meet at a local park or public meeting space - please call for details. Alternately, the publications below may be of interest to you.

Information outlined in The K9 Guy llc publications is based on the experience of a Certified Professional Trainer (CPT). Publications contain the same information provided to local clients seeking healthy relationships with their pets. Many local clients have found this information helpful, so it is being offered here for those wishing to improve their knowledge regarding dogs. Please review content summaries before purchasing to assess a publication's merit for you and your dog(s). Because there is no way to return information, no refunds are available for these publications.
Because this information lacks any personal assessment of your pet, or control of its interpretation and application, no liability is assumed by The K9 Guy llc for its use. In no case should it take priority over recommendations offered by any canine professional who has seen you and/or your dog in person. If recommendations found in these publications do not bring improvement, or result in any degradation of behavior, owners should discontinue their use and consult a local professional dog trainer.
