Our Mission


Here at Meraki K9 our mission is to create clear communication between you and your dog. This type of language allows you both to live happier lives together. Training is important for your relationship with your dog fora many reasons! At the root of everything, your dog is only looking to better their situation! S/He is going to figure out how to get what they want! It is our job as the human to show our dog the most beneficial way to get what they desire (which is through performing behaviors WE like!). If your dog is left to their own choices, they may find that behaviors THEY discovered (i.e. digging, jumping, barking, stealing your shoes..etc.) pays WAY better than doing the behaviors you like! By teaching your dog a clear and effective communication system you will create a training culture that is fun for the both of you!
