With over a decade of experience in dog training, we are here to assist you in having the dog you've always dreamed of.

At Unrivaled K9, we specialize in building strength and confidence in dogs through our expert training programs. Our approach focuses on empowering your canine companion to thrive both physically and mentally, ensuring a strong and confident.

We focus on fundamental dog training principles, promoting stability, confidence, and a respectful bond between handler and canine through collaborative teamwork.

Stability is the cornerstone, providing a dog with a sense of security and confidence essential for their mental and emotional health. This foundation of stability is crucial in nurturing a well-balanced and happy dog.

Obedience training builds upon this stability. Mastering commands such as sit, stay, and heel is not just about discipline; it's about enhancing the overall enjoyment of the companionship between a dog and its handler. It contributes to a dog’s well-rounded development, ensuring they are well-behaved and responsive.

Respect is the final, vital element. Teaching a dog respect means they learn to make good choices, such as coming back when called, even in challenging situations. This aspect of training fosters a deep sense of trust and cooperation in the relationship, ensuring a harmonious bond between the dog and its handler. Together, stability, obedience, and respect form a comprehensive approach to dog training, leading to a fulfilling and joyful partnership.

If your looking for a dog trainer for anything from basic obedience to proper socialization and stability look no farther! Do yourself a favor and give Unrivaled k9 a call. I started attending training with my Belgian Malinois 3 years ago and have gained the tools, knowledge and confidence to handle what can be a very difficult breed. I receive compliments all the time on how well behaved my dog is and I’m always quick to recommend Unrivaled!!

Belgian Malinois

I absolutely love the group training I took my dog (Postybear who is a aussie/lab mix) to Mike’s training mainly so he knew commands and to stop pulling on the leash. We attended many classes when he was a puppy and now he is almost 3 he is the perfect dog. He does not go after other dogs he listens to my command without hesitation!! 100% recommend Mike and the training he provides!!!​

Aussie / Lab mix

Had my German Shepard, Kapena with Mike for his 30 day board and train. Mike was able to focus his training to work with my wife how has Parkinson’s disease. Even though Kapena is still technically a puppy is skills out in public are on point. Took him on 9 day 2400 mile road trip and was perfect for us the whole trip. I can‘t praise Mike enough for the time he spent with us and Kapena.

German Shepherd

My Labrador retriever (Sami) didn't work out at her last 2 homes. I adopted her at 1yr old. I wanted to get some training so that I would know how to handle her. I had seen Mike and his dog in public and I was very impressed with his dogs obedience and got his contact info. We went to training and I have to admit at first, I thought I was in over my head. But in working with Mike I gained confidence and couldn't be happier with how much both Sami and I learned. Having an obedient dog has strengthened our bond and I am able to take her to public places.

Labrador Retriever

This is top of the line training! My Mini Aussie, Sybil, and I have been training with Mike since 2021. Sybil was only 10 months when we started so she hadn’t developed any vices (other than being overly friendly) but I wanted her to have a foundation of obedience before forming bad habits. The knowledge and skills that Mike uses to train are concise and easily implemented for practicing at home. I enjoy the creative obedience sessions while Sybil enjoys the challenging agility portions that test her abilities and problem solving. The training we have received has been invaluable and has made for a peaceful and enjoyable home environment! 100% recommend Unrivaled K9 Solutions for ALL of your training needs!

Mini Aussie

I trained with Mike when I adopted my German shepherd Heidi. I realized she was going to be a bit of a handful and I wanted to ensure I knew how to competently address a few of her issues. She was slightly reactive and very hyperactive. With Mike’s help both Heidi and I gained confidence and trust in each other. Training with her became almost a hobby and seeing her progress made me super proud. We are still learning and growing but have come such a long way thanks to Unrivaled K9.
