Our Methods

Patriot K-Nine LLC is Fayetteville’s resource for quality personalized dog training, as well as rehabilitation for dogs with mild to severe behavioral issues. Founded on the belief that every dog should be treated with respect and that not every dog learns the same. All canines differ in personality types and every owner has unique expectations for their dogs. We devote our knowledge of canines and their behavior by applying this to a training program designed specifically for you and your pet. Our objective is to provide our clients with the skills to not only understand, but better communicate with their dogs using both traditional and new age methods. Training is more than simply teaching your dog to sit!

  • Barking
  • Pulling On Leash
  • House breaking
  • Nipping
  • Aggression or Biting
  • Jumping on You or Others

THERE IS NO MANUAL FOR DOG TRAINING

Every dog and every owner are unique. Therefore, we don’t specialize in any one technique. Reward based training may work for certain behaviors; correction may be necessary for others. Utilizing what’s call a “Balanced Training Theory”, your Patriot K-Nine trainer will work closely with you to understand your relationship with your dog, your stresses, worries and successes. We will build your confidence around understanding behaviors and communicating successfully using the most appropriate techniques available today.

WHAT SETS US APART FROM OTHER TRAINERS

We help you engage with your dog through a deeper understanding of how they think. We build a relationship with you and your dog, not just treat symptoms. There is a reason behind every behavior and our goal is to find that reason and address it. You’ll learn to pay attention to body language, predict behaviors before they become problematic, and build a stronger life long bond with your dog! Our trainers will speak to you in terms you will understand, we avoid using terminology often seen in the training community without properly explaining its meaning and how to apply it.

We believe in a train as you live philosophy that was adapted from our military experience, meaning that you will not always find us at our shop. We will be out and about doing home visits, public outings with you our clients, on trail walks and so much more. Patriot K-Nine Dog Training is NOT your typical Dog Trainer and we are looking for not your typical clients to join our family. You aren’t a basic dog owner so why would we offer a basic service? Come find out why we are the most recommended dog training company in Cumberland County with the most unique training program of its kind.
