Diana, one of our amazing Assistant Trainers, has such a way with dogs. She exudes calm, focused energy, and the dogs pick up on this and are able to relax, knowing that they are in the hands of a capable leader.

Jackson, a recent Day-train KNine client, is spotted here enjoying some quality down-time with Diana after a great training session in Alice Keck Park (lots of distractions! Turtles! Ducks! People!)

It’s important to balance your training sessions (= physical and mental work) with downtime where you still interact with your dog (= bonding and connection) to create a well-rounded experience that is challenging but still fun and rewarding for the dog.

Nothing like catching up by the fire with old friends ❤️‍🔥 We have Bentley back! Even though this guy finished a training program over a year ago, it’s always great when dogs come back in for tune ups. Maintaining and up keeping is very important when training your dog, and we are always here to help when your dog needs a little pick me up🐶

01/29/2022

My study of canine behavior and training began when I was in the Army almost 30 years ago and continues to this day. I get as excited today as I did then, whenever I learn something new about training and relating to my dogs. For me, this journey began as a job, then became a mission, and has now evolved into a life's passion and work. 

I founded K-Nine Solutions with one goal: To provide dog owners with the help, answers, and results they desperately need, along with the care, compassion, and understanding they deserve. As someone who started many years ago with a dog that had serious aggression issues, I know firsthand what it’s like to feel frustrated and hopeless. I can empathize with your experience and can offer you a common-sense solution that is based on sound psychological principles and is very simple to implement into your life. 

I have found that there is nothing secretive or magical about training dogs. Good dog training and behavior management are both about common sense combined with a functional understanding of a few sound psychological principles, having experience with dogs, and a clear understanding of the way dogs think and interact with each other and the world they live in. 

Your personal experience with dog training doesn’t necessarily have to begin when you get an 8-week-old puppy (although ideally, it should) or when your adult dog bites a child. 

* In reality, it begins on the day you make up your mind to learn how dogs think and how they relate to the world they live in. 
* It begins when you decide to relate to your dog in a manner that both you and your dog respect and understand. 
* It begins when you make up your mind to develop a meaningful relationship based on mutual trust, respect, and clear communication. 

This is what we at K-Nine Solutions have taught and demonstrated every day with literally thousands of clients and their dogs. I hope the effects of my work will carry on in the many lives we have touched along the way.

We love group outings! ✨
Today we went to work around distractions on State St and got some of the dogs out to train in different environments. State St is great because it allows us to encounter highly distractive things like bikes, skateboards, alarms, and other dogs!
Getting your dog out to work in new environments can be very beneficial in solidifying commands and building confidence!

What a great day for a K-Nine Solutions PackWalk in the Valley!

Adam, Diana, and Eric were Pack Leaders today, supporting and guiding our clients and their dogs through a variety of drills while exploring the beautiful town of Solvang!

KNine Solutions PackWalks offer clients a fun and safe environment for practicing all those new dog training tips they’ve learned, plus who doesn’t love a chance to enjoy the great outdoors?

To get in on the fun, join us through our Meetup group: https://bit.ly/3biYF2n

Congratulations to the latest Grad Group at K-Nine Solutions,
Tucker, Scout, and Abbey! 🎉🎓✨

They came to us with a variety of training needs, ranging from reactivity, to impulse control, socialization, and basic obedience.

They all completed successful Day-Train programs including e-collar training and we’re so proud of all of them!

Now we pass the baton to their owners, who will continue the training at home. Why? Because training never stops! 🧐

PRACTICE is the key to continued success. 📈

DISCIPLINE. Do it even when you don’t feel like doing it.🥋

CONSISTENCY. The lifestyle that goes along with training a dog is a marathon, not a sprint. ⏳

BELIEVE in your abilities. The only way to achieve is to believe in and trust yourself. You can do it! 🏆
And we’re always here to help. ☎️😊

Update from K-Nine Solutions about COVID-19

Please help us keep each other safe

Dear K-Nine Solutions community,

I never thought back in March of 2020 that we'd still be dealing with the pandemic today, almost 2 full years later, yet here we are. I'm so proud of my team for the way they've handled the ever-changing environment as we've all tried to navigate these past 2 years, because they've certainly been challenging for everyone.

With the recent increase in COVID-19 cases throughout Santa Barbara County, we wanted to remind everyone of our policies to help keep you and our staff safe:

1. Please stay home if you're sick - remember that we are a small business, and having even one or two employees out creates a hardship. If you have cold or flu-like symptoms, such as a fever, cough, sneezing, runny nose, body aches, chills, or gastrointestinal symptoms like nausea/vomiting/diarrhea, please stay home until you are well again so you don't put our team at risk. We are happy to reschedule your lessons, or we could arrange for a Zoom lesson if needed in the interim.

2. If you've recently been in close contact with someone who has tested positive for COVID-19, please follow these guidelines for quarantine (https://publichealthsbc.org/dont-feel-well/) as outlined on the Santa Barbara Public Health Department website (https://publichealthsbc.org/dont-feel-well/) . When in doubt, call your primary care physician for instructions.

3. Please wear a well-fitting face mask when you enter our facility, as per SB County mandate.

If you’re looking for more ways to protect yourself and your loved ones, check out the CDC (https://www.cdc.gov/coronavirus/2019-ncov/index.html) website.

Thank you all so much for sticking with us. We only want what's best for you, your loved ones, and our amazing team, and we truly appreciate your cooperation. Together, we can get through this, and we look forward to continuing to support each other during these challenging times.

Wishing you all good health,

Eric Smith
CEO and Founder of K-Nine Solutions
