Dog Training

K9s Only has been a premier Los Angeles Dog Training facility for over 20 years. Our expert knowledge on dog behavior has shaped our dog training methods to look at the whole dog, not just the species. Like people, dogs have different strengths and weaknesses, different ways of learning and their dog training should be tailored to meet their individual needs. There is not ONE way to train every dog. The primary goal of K9s Only is to produce a companion animal that bonds with and respects its guardian and has the ability and desire to please. It is important to K9s Only, that through working with your family, you will be able to better understand canine behavior and how to effectively communicate with your dog. This is achieved by recognizing that your dog is a living creature with a brain and has the ability to make his own choices. Our dog trainers influence the dog’s behavior in a natural way, allowing him to make right and wrong choices. A training evaluation allows our trainers to determine what method and type of training will be most suitable and successful for you, your dog and your family.

Dog Hotel / Dog Boarding

Our Los Angeles Dog Boarding facilities each offer private rooms for your dog, providing comfortable beds and blankets in a temperature controlled environment, including Filtered air and water. Our staff maintains the highest cleaning standards and our primary concern is the health and safety of your beloved dog. Because K9s Only specialized in dog training, our staff is capable of caring for all breeds and all temperaments and welcomes dogs that may not get along with other dogs. While vacationing with us, your dog will have 4-5 outings a day in playgroups that match your dog’s activity level and temperament. Dogs that don’t play well with others are given the same amount of playtime in our private yards, one-on-one with our caring Animal Care Associates. For more information, visit our Los Angeles Dog Boarding page.

Dog Daycare

Each location offers large indoor and outdoor play yards with ramps and obstacles for your dog to play and socialize while in our care. Large dogs and small dogs are separated and most importantly, our daycare yards NEVER have over 25 dogs playing at one time. Our dog trainers evaluate your dog through a safe and gentle process to ensure success in our yard. There is always an animal care attendant watching over the playgroup to maintain our non-bullying policy. At the end of the day, your dog is returned to you tired and happy, ready for some down time with you after your busy day and his busy day. Playing is hard work!.
