Here at Intelligent K9, our dogs are our kids. We realize the importance of including our dog into our lifestyle as much as possible. For many of us, this can be challenging when our dog does not listen.

No one gets a dog and imagines conflict and frustration.


We have dogs join us as family with the intention of enhancing our lives but it doesn’t always happen that way. We have lots to learn as dog owners and Intelligent K9 San Diego dog training is here to help!
