HMK9 Training Philosophy
Our program focuses on bridging the gap between you and your canine companion. The first step in training is to become fluent in a communication system that makes learning clear and enjoyable for the dog. Using Heart Mountain K9's system, you and your dog will build a stronger relationship, and your dog will obey your command of his own free will.

In this 6 week course, your puppy will gain socialization, focus, and the confidence to overcome obstacles and solve problems. While your puppy will be introduced to some basic commands and fun tricks, the class is aimed to give you and your pup the best start possible by simply familiarizing your pup to the concept of learning. This class is essential for the lifelong success of your new puppy.

Heart Mountain K9 trains protection in the form of controlled aggression. Every dog has aggression; We specialize in manipulating and controlling that aggression to create a stable companion who can be both utilized as a protection tool, and enjoyed by all members of your family.
Turn My Dog into a Protection Dog!
Not every dog is suitable for protection work and Heart Mountain K9 has a firm belief that a dog should not be forced to do something that it does no possess strong aptitude for. Forcing a dog into aggression can cause major issues and is not a safe, nor is it a morally sound practice.
if your dog shows an aptitude for this kind of work, we are happy to assist you in developing his/her skills, and seeing you clear to the end of your journey with your canine partner.
Start your journey Early!
Starting protection work with your puppy is the best way to ensure success. If you wait until your dog is older, you may have missed out on our opportunity to condition him/her properly for future success.
Consult a Professional Before Purchasing a Pup
It is a common misconception that any German Shepherd can do the job and those who want a protection dog jump to buying the first pup they see. The reality is that these people quickly find out that their new pup is not what they needed. It is better to talk to your trainer and ask for recommendations before committing to buying a pup.
