Take a "hands-on" approach with our personalized in-Home Private Professional lessons. A series of 4 sessions will have your 4 legged friend performing obedience commands on your verbal or hand signal cues.
Not enough time? Then Our Board and Train Program with Kelly's K-Nines, in Aurora, is for you! We know you live a busy life, and it is hard to consistently provide the attention and care that your pets can demand. Let me train your dog for you - here, in Aurora. With years of satisfied owners and loved pets, you can rely on me to successfully train your furry friend. Then in the included follow up lessons, we will teach you training tips, handling techniques, and all of the commands. Both options produce a happy well-mannered dog.
Whether you have a new member of the family that needs puppy kindergarten, or your four-legged friend needs a tune up, we ensure that your pet will receive the best in training by taking a Balanced and Positive approach. You will learn handling skills and how to be a leader for your dog. Your dog will build confidence, gain self-control and love our obedience training.

I'll take the Well-trained dog to go!
This training has all the fix'ins! It's our most comprehensive program. Leave your Pal with me and we will train all of the Basic and Advanced commands on leash. Trips to the local hardware store, park and neighborhood bus-stop, to name a few, will ensure your dog's appropriate behavior is transferable. If off leash control is what you crave, add E-Collar training! Liberate yourself from the lead and experience the joys of leash free obedience.
Just like the 2 week course this program is meaty! It is designed for the furry friend who has more to learn and will need a little extra time. Plenty of socialization season these Boot Camps. Your dog will be trained among friends at Kelly's K-Nines , and go on field trips! He will learn to obey even with distractions. Follow up lessons will teach you how to handle and command your dog.
Don't see what you want on the menu? Ask!
This is the same as the Boot Camp, but for the lighter appetite. This Monday through Friday Program is designed for dogs who just want the basic commands, or who already have basics and want more advanced skills. Drop your dog with me, at "School" and we will train all day. Then pick up a tired and much smarter pooch. *We can customize the length of the program to fit your needs. E-Collar aditional. Includes instructional 2 lessons.
Some of us can't spend that much time away from our Pal! How about 3 days a week? For a series of 3 weeks. This is the same as Boot Camp, only modified. E-Collar additional. Includes 3 Instructional lessons.
*We can customize the length of the program to fit your needs.

"Kelly is an absolute joy! She is an amazing trainer who listens and is intuitive to the needs of our two dogs. She helped us with some very specific training issues. I would highly recommend her to anyone looking for any kind of training!"
"I can't possibly write a strong enough recommendation for Kelly!!! There is no possible way we could survive without Kelly in our lives, she is simply the absolute best! We have a pack of 3 and they all absolutely adore Kelly, yes even Kimber! :-)"
"We absolutely adore Kelly and all the work she has done with our goldendoodle, Cubby. Kelly has made our lives so much easier and she has helped us gain the family dog we always wanted for our kiddos. She has trained (on and off leash), boarded and provided day care to Cubby and there is no doubt that Cubby loves every minute she is with Kelly and her doggy friends!
"Kelly was a huge help when we adopted our puppy last year. She provided some great initial suggestions on getting him acclimated. Then after a few months we turned him over for an intense 10 day training session...WOW what a difference. Kelly was also a great resource with follow up questions as we worked with the dog to implement at home what he had learned during training. To this day we cannot believe how good little Zack behaves. Thanks Kelly!"
"We rescued Charli about a year ago, he had no obedience training and Kelly came to our rescue. Charlie responded to her training very easily, he showed excitement and with her pocket full of treats he was ready. Kelly was very patient with me and made it fun for the both of us. I was thrilled to see what we both accomplished. Thank you Kelly for your expertise in training!"
Kelly trained our dog when she was a puppy and as a now 3 year old dog, she is perfectly behaved. She did such a great job socializing her that there isn't a dog she doesn't like or get along with. Anytime "Stella" sees Kelly she is beside herself with joy. All around, the best trainer out there!
Call me to discuss your dogs needs and together we will decide which program is right for you!
