Puppy Head Start

This six-week class is held in our safe, clean indoor facility in Canoga Park, and is designed for puppies 7 to 16 weeks of age. Toy breeds are accepted up to 20 weeks of age



This six-week class is open to all dogs over 16 weeks of age. Using positive reinforcement and motivational methods, agility equipment and fun games, students improve their relationships with their dogs and strengthen the dog's ability to focus and obey around distractions.



Dogs must have completed a Beginner Class at J9's K9s. Continue having fun with your dog as you build on the skills learned in Beginner Class! Intermediate Fun & Games Obedience emphasizes strengthening behaviors such as coming when called, loose leash walking and stays. Difficult distractions and distance from the handler are also added in this class.



Dogs must have completed an Intermediate Class at J9's K9s. Design your own class curriculum in this innovative, upper-level J9's K9s class. Each student decides what they want to work on during the six-week session, and the instructor plans the games in class accordingly! Recalls and stays around very difficult distractions, sit for petting, confidence building, tricks, attention around distractions and more - includes a "Street Smarts" session where you'll practice around real world distractions, too. The sky's the limit in this made-to-order class!
