Training Programs

 All dogs deserve solid foundation training. Healthy relationships rely on clear communication, and by improving our methods of communication with our dogs, we can provide them with happier, more well balanced lives. The Summit K9 training philosophy is based on the principle that truly reliable behaviors can only be achieved after building strong foundation of motivation, communication, and consistency.

All Summit K9 trainers are required to have a deep understanding of canine learning theory and are always pursuing continued education in training and handling. We are committed to exploring a wide range of methods, techniques, and tools to help our clients achieve their full potential with their canine companions. We specialize in improving leash walking, establishing off-leash reliability, developing polite social skills, and generating calm behavior in the home.

Walking Programs

At Summit K9, we are passionate about providing dogs with the biological fulfillment they need to live happy, healthy lives. Dog walking with Summit K9 is not your average dog walking program. Mental exercise is equally important to your dog's health and well-being as physical exercise, which is why we have specially formulated our walking services to include structured training and games. While your pup will have plenty of opportunity to sniff and explore, they will also be actively building loose leash walking skills, basic obedience foundations, and attentiveness to the handler.

Solo Dog Walks

Fun filled, training centered walks to provide physical and mental exercise while building new skills. Dogs of all skill levels and behavioral needs are welcome to apply to this program!

Available in 4, 6, and 10 Walk Packages


Pack Adventures

Join the pack! Your dog will build key skills while learning to safely socialize with other dogs. Your pup is sure to come home tired after a day of learning and exploring in the great outdoors! 

Available in 4, 6, and 10 Walk Packages

Midday visits for potty breaks, feeding, and introductory socialization performed by a canine professional. We all know that puppies require a crazy amount of time and energy to meet their needs. We are here to help!

Board & Train Program

The Summit K9 Board & Train program is specifically designed to lay the foundations for your ideal dog! Throughout their stay, your dog will receive extensive one on one training to build the skills necessary to ensure proper house manners, general calmness, basic obedience, and leash skills. Participants in our 4 and 6 week programs will also build essential skills for off leash reliability and safe socialization with other dogs. 

This program is specifically formulated to assist you in learning to implement a holistic training system with your dog that will yield optimal results. Dogs in this program will be conditioned to very consistent structure, streamlining their transition back into your home. Owners participating in this program must commit to utilizing a crate in their home regularly. 

Dogs will be dropped off on Sunday night and will work on targeted training throughout the day with Summit K9 trainers Monday through Friday. Dog and owner will meet at Green Valley to receive a go home Private Lesson every Friday when they pick up their dogs, with guidelines and homework for continued progress for Saturday and Sunday. Following the final boarding portion of the program, owners will receive 2 in home follow up lessons for continued skill building and troubleshooting.

During their stay, your dog will be given the highest quality care and attention. Experienced staff will be on site 24/7, and you will receive frequent video and photo updates communicating your dog’s progress. Transparency is extremely important to us, and you will be notified of any problems or concerns immediately if such occurrences arise. Throughout the day, your dog will receive structured training, plenty of exercise (both mental and physical!), and outdoor play sessions with our trainers. Once your dog has mastered the basics, they will participate in regular field trips to practice their skills and explore the great outdoors! 

Summit K9 board and train programming is a headstart program. It is extremely important that the owner maintains the results when the dog goes home. If the new training and system of structure is not implemented from the moment the dog leaves our facility, they will backslide to their old habits.
