"Dog Trainer Becky Chadwick of J9's K9s was brought on board at North Star Dogs to guide the pups' early training program and is currently training the pups a blocking technique to help them to block their children's impending flight.

At North Star we believe in the power of early bonding and seize the opportunity to begin to educate the children about how to care for their dog right from the start."

J9'sK9s uses motivational, reward-based training methods. 

“We incorporate lots of food, petting, praise and play in our dog training. Motivational training is a wonderful relationship builder between canines and humans. Not only do reward-based dog training methods work the best - they're a heck of a lot more fun!” - JP
