WELCOME TO THE K9OLOGY CENTER!

The K9ology Center is an award winning dog training organization based out of Sperryville, Virginia. Our staff of certified professionals lead a variety of group and private training programs. We are here to help with: puppy training, obedience and manners, curbing nuisance behaviors, and modifying fear and anxiety-based problems.  We also specialize in breed conformation, rally obedience, agility, nosework, and other AKC events. 

 

Learn how to speak dog, how to manage unwanted behaviors, and how to redirect and train your dog with science-based methods. Our focus is on teaching solid communication between dog and owner for long lasting results. We recommend a variety of tools based on your dog’s age, skill level, and temperament. Our least intrusive, minimally aversive methods are fear-free! We are here to coach you through exercises specifically design to ensure success at home, and in the real world.

 

We offer a variety of programs to suit your goals, lifestyle, schedule, and budget. 

 

Our private lessons are great for dogs with specific issues, and owners who need more flexible scheduling. Great for getting the whole family involved, problem solving situations, and improve on handling skills through one on one instruction. We are happy to make a recommendation and customize a program to meet your goals. 

 

Group lessons offer a solid foundation to any dog’s education. If your dog is not fearful, aggressive, or anxious - then a group class may be a good fit! Our semi-private 4 week programs are limited to 4 participants! This means owners get extra individual attention while also working on socialization and distractions. 

 

For those die hard owner/handlers, we offer our K9O Club program. Similar to a gym membership, club members receive exclusive budget-friendly class options for manners, agility, rally obedience, therapy dog training, and more! Members also receive special discounts on seminars and events! Ideal for owners who need help staying on track with their training, looking to connect with like-minded dog lovers, or itching to escape the stress of daily life by working with their dog! 

 

In addition to our premier dog training services, we also stock our K9O Shop with a variety of quality tools, treats, toys, and accessories. All items are carefully curated and recommended by our canine professionals.
