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.

Common Dog Issues 

  • Barking
  • Pulling On Leash
  • House breaking
  • Nipping
  • Aggression or Biting
  • Jumping
  • Chewing on Furniture
  • Shyness or Anxiety
  • Afraid of Thunderstorms, Fireworks, and/or Other Loud Noises
  • Not Coming or Running Away
  • Digging


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.

No situation is too difficult for Patriot K-Nine! We do not have any size or breed restrictions and will be there for you every step of the way!


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 trainer 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 are here for you, because we’ve been there.
