Why Are The K9 Experts Unique?


Everyone is different, and that not only includes every dog, but also every family. We at The K9 Experts understand this and custom tailor the dogs
training to both the needs of the family and also the way the dog and family learns. We want to focus teaching your dog behaviors that will benefit you the most. After your free evaluation with one of our professional trainers, we will recommend a training program that best suits your needs and wants.

Our Director of Operations Courtney always had a passion for animals but zoned in on her relationship with dogs at a young age. She began teaching obedience classes for family pets when she was 16. After graduating high school she went on to attend The National K9 School for Dog Trainers where she studied behavior modification, puppy through advanced off leash obedience, search & rescue, assistant dog training, protection & patrol, detection as well as some dog sports. Then after being moved by the unique and horrific events of September 11th, she joined the Connecticut Army National Guard and enlisted as a Military Police Officer. She served as an MP for 14 years and attended specialty schools such as SWAT and K9 School. As a Military Working Dog handler, she assisted local, state, and Federal agencies on various missions to include but not limited to protecting Presidents of the United States and the Pope. Wanting to put her skills to use, she served overseas as an independent contractor for 2 years. She returned home and wanted to go back to helping families have a better relationship with their companions. Her experience to show people how to communicate with their dogs utilizing tools, timing, and techniques help The K9 Experts lead the pack in obedience training.
