Seeing is believing.

Family K9’s website was the first to offer videos of dogs in training - because Nick wants you to see firsthand what great dog training can do for you and your dog. Dog trainers are everywhere - and not all of them are qualified to help you with your dog.  Go to any dog park or talk to people who have trained their dogs and see for yourself what the results were for their efforts.  Lots of trainers talk a good game - there is a reason why they don't have videos on their site.  A trainer should be proud to show you their work - just like an artist would love to show you their portfolio.
Nick’s concept for Family K9 is to offer dog owners the very best training - making sure things get done right the first time and guarantees the training for the life of your dog. When you choose Family K9 dog training for anything from puppy training to advanced obedience or problem behaviour - all levels of training and problem solving - you are dealing with a consummate professional with a 20 year track record and you are always dealing with the owner of the business. No part time staff - no trainers who lack experience or are part of a chain organization.
Family K9 offers a wide array of services in order to help Montreal dog owners with their training needs. Please see the Services page for complete details.

I wish I had a photo for you to see.
It was possibly the most touching thing I have seen between Human and K9.

While on vacation in Maine - we were out for a walk one evening and a man walked past us with a dog slung over his shoulder - fireman carry style. It was late and dark and I couldn’t see him or his dog clearly. The dog was at ease and relaxed up in his shoulders. In that brief moment if I had to guess I’d say she was used to being up there.

We ran into him a couple of days later and I went over to say hello and ask him about his dog. She had a splint on one of her front paws and her tongue was hanging out. He didn’t go into detail - just said “she’s got some birth defects” and left it at that. She proceeded to place herself under a cedar bush behind him and he laughed mentioning that she is quirky and afraid of just about everyone she doesn’t know - so without hesitation we walked off after saying goodbye - I didn’t want to stress her out. I did make a point of telling him how beautiful I thought it was that he carries her when she needs it - she must have been in the 60-70 pound range. He was a young and fit looking man and they were a real pair.

I would have loved a photo - had she not been bothered by strangers I would have asked for one of them together. it would have been hanging up in my home as a reminder of the bond, the trust and caring between human and dog.
