importance-of-dog-training-circle-k9Dog training is simply put a part of being a responsible dog owner. With the proper training of your canine friend the lifestyle both you and your dog live can be made less stressful. As well as making a difference in preventing (and possibly solving) behavior problems.

Essentially dog training is all about the communication. You need to be able to properly communicate to the dog what behaviors are correct, desired, or preferred in different circumstances and what behaviors are undesirable. As well as understanding the communication returned from the dog. Dogs are able to signal that they are unsure, confused, nervous, happy, excited, and so on. The emotional state of the dog is an important key with training; as a dog that is stressed or distracted will not learn proficiently.

Circle K9 believes that not all dogs are the same, therefore not all training methods are the same. Part of the training process includes choosing the best way of training. This does not necessarily mean the best way that is going to work for your dog, but rather the best way that will be successful for YOU and your dog. Successful training depends on how much time and effort you put forth towards the success of your dog. Even if you choose to hire a personal trainer to train your dog, the execution of the training depends on the effort you put forth with the dog.

Dog training does take time, Patience is a must. Training will not happen overnight, But after consistent repetition it will work in the end.  

Personalities in dogs are often not that different from humans. Each dog is going to learn differently, and may need different ways or different amount of time to learn. It simply takes a lot of patience, and common sense from its human to conquer the issue at hand. Like humans, dogs need love, trust and confidence in order for the relationship to flourish. Taking the time to train your dog will improve your relationship with your dog and here at Circle K9 we want all canines to live happy, confident lives with their owners.

Circle K9

THE place for all your Dog Training & Boarding needs conveniently located near Houston, Texas.

Circle K9 is located in Magnolia, Texas (just outside of Houston). Run by loving dog owners and a certified trainer, Andrea and David Ketterer’s Houston dog kennel facility sits on a five acre estate for the sole purpose of training and boarding dogs. Dog Training is a passion and way of life for David and Andrea that throughout the years became their profession and the basis for Circle K9.

Circle K9’s dog boarding facility is situated in a country environment with a large pond and plenty of shady trees. The dog kennels are located in a climate controlled indoor facility with outdoor kennels and large runs as well. While staying at Circle K9’s Houston boarding facility your dog will benefit from our huge individual 11’ x 21’ outdoor run areas, and sleep in their personal 4’ x 8’ indoor kennel with elevated Kuranda beds. At Circle K9 we believe the dogs are happiest with plenty of space, lots of exercise, close personal attention and oodles of love, which is why we live on site.

Quality dog training is the core of our business. Andrea and David feel that when conflicts occur between a dog and owner it is when messages are unclear and not properly understood. The key in our Houston dog training program is to teach individuals to understand that all dogs learn differently. Circle K9 is here to help; not only to educate the dog but also its owner.

Specialty Training is offered by Circle K9 of Texas, training such as Schutzhund, protection, narcotics, tracking, and competition obedience. Our goal is to see our Houston training program dogs educated and available to work with a variety of Police and Military Agencies. Or simply to see them successfully integrated within their adoring family.
