Welcome to K-9 Obedience Club of Jacksonville!. Founded over 60 years ago as a dog training club for American Kennel Club traditional obedience competition enthusiasts. K-9 has grown and evolved over the years to include a wide variety of classes to reflect the wide range of dog related activities available to today’s pet owner and experienced performance competitor.
K-9 has always offered Basic Obedience classes to the community; in addition to that we now offer Puppy classes to give your “baby” a “head start” in basic behaviors and healthy socialization. We also have a class called Family Dog to work on acceptable household manners. Pet Therapy class is available to those who would like to share their dog with patients in hospitals and nursing homes when they and their dogs pass the screening process.
For those who are ambitious to become a team with their dog, K-9 holds classes in a wide range of dog sports such as Introduction to Agility, formal Obedience competition and Nose Work, a new sport based on drug/explosive detection.
Whether dog owners are new to training or accomplished competitors, K-9 Obedience Club offers many ways to build a stronger bond with your dog. Understanding how your dog learns and responds can make communicating with your dog more effective, but more importantly, it may enrich your dog's life and deepen the bond you share.
Club members take classes, train independently and train with other members on shared interests. The beautiful covered open-air training facility and spacious grounds are available to members year round.
