Dog Training San Diego

The benefits of having a trained dog—that is, having a well mannered, balanced, healthy, happy, and safe canine family member—are too numerous to mention in a single breath. Having a well-trained dog not only makes your life and your relationship with your dog better, it also helps to make your dog emotionally healthy and safe from the dangers that come from being uncontrollable and/or imbalanced.

Here at Absolute K-9, we guarantee our ability to successfully address any challenges that a dog presents, ranging from dangerous aggression to specific trouble areas such as house soiling or walking on a leash. We are proud to offer a variety of training types that are suitable to your, and your dog’s, needs.

There are not bad dogs…just dogs that have yet to be trained

We believe that in an ideal situation, it is much better to be proactive in your dog training by teaching the right behaviors before bad behaviors begin.
