We have trained with Kenton Callahan (owner of Family K9) for years now.  As owners of a Standard Schnauzer, (aka "those stubborn dogs cannot be trained to do obedience / rally"), we now have two racks of ribbons with many placements, due to the training and help we received from Kenton.    

Simply put, Kenton knows dogs!   In his classes, I have seen him work with many breeds of dogs and many types of owners.   He watches team performance and then customizes training plans to suite the dog and owner teams.   Just as no two dogs are alike, Kenton's plan for success will vary and be customized for you and your doggy partner!

Kenton's involvement is not just in the classroom.  He also comes to shows and cheers his clients on!   It's good to be observed and receive positive feedback right at the show.  

Our dog does many performance sports and the foundation skills we have learned from Kenton have enabled us to take our dog anywhere -- to any venue.    A good dog is a polite dog and your dog will learn good skills for being out in the world while training with Kenton.  

Whether you are looking for a class or for private training, we are happy to recommend Kenton.   It's a guaranteed good time working with him.

"Kenton's training methods have had a huge impact with how I communicate with my shy dog. I do not know where I would be today without his help. He not only helped me with living day to day with my dog but got us to a place where we could compete in Rally and obedience!  I highly recommend Family K9 for all your training needs."

"Kenton's classes are a lot of fun, fast paced and you are busy working your dog  the entire session. (None of this sitting around in class waiting for your turn) By the end of class, you have  a good idea of how to  teach your dog the particular skills presented,so during the week, by continuing to practice, you and your dog are successful in performing the skills taught..."
