Conveniently Serving New Jersey and Pennsylvania

 

Welcome to Guardian K-9 Training

I have worked with animals for 17 years beginning in 2001 working in kennels, advancing to pet stores for both small and large corporations. I later worked as a full time veterinary technician as well as a part time dog groomer. A local dog trainer was impressed with how I handled his dogs while at the Veterinarian’s office. He then offered to teach me his dog training techniques. After completing a student course in K-9 training, I created Guardian K9 Training based on three principles—honesty, trust, respect and happiness for all clients.

k9-homeI provide quality training at a fair rate for I believe everyone has the right to have a well behaved dog and NO training routine should be the same for every dog. Each dog needs to be evaluated and treated as an individual because every dog is different. And, I do this without costing the client an arm and a leg (we need our arms and legs for our dogs and our own well being!). I think most agree that the ideal classroom situation for children occurs when the teacher connects with each student to enhance and expedite the learning process. This applies to dogs as well.

I’ve been fortunate to have had years of experience handling dogs both medically and psychologically which, when combined with my training skills allow me to connect with each dog to enhance and expedite the learning process. This is done by finding the right balance of discipline and praise which makes training fun and effective for you and your dog.

 

WE train puppies starting at 8 weeks of age and older.
WE offer affordable training for all breeds and all ages.

I am very happy with the results my dog achieved through Dana. She asked what I was looking for and she had a process to get my dog there. Results were quicker than expected. On the leash or off people comment how well behaved he is as a puppy. Dana has helped me enjoy my dog anywhere I take him as are strangers who come up to him. It is also nice to be able to contact her with questions. Highly recommended.

Dana was great with our dog, knew what she was talking about and knew how to get results. Our dog is much better walking and inside as well! Very happy with the results.

We started training with Dana a couple months later after getting our first puppy. She has been amazing. She's extremely reliable and she will even let you call her or text her in between sessions incase you are having any issues. We can now take our puppy off leash to any parks, beaches or even other peoples homes and not have to worry about his behavior. I wouldn't recommend anyone else!!!

Very professional and friendly. I'm very pleased with all her guidenes in training my dog who had problems with interacting with some people. I'm very pleased with all the hard work she has helped me give to my dog. She will be my service dog and next training for diabetes training. Job well done.

Dana is truly a nice person. She worked with my wife and I to erase all of Cosmo's (the Rottweiler) bad habits. Aggression towards the children on the block. Aggression towards other dogs. She explained to us the first day we met what she planned to do and delivered on all counts. No exceptions she did exactly what she promised. Cosmo will sit and let the kids on the block pet him. They can even walk him. Money well spent. Thanks Dana.
