Our Mission

Here at Meraki K9 our mission is to make sure communication is clear between you and your dog. We train the dog behaviors and teach you to manage these behaviors. This allows you both to live happier lives together. Training is so important for your relationship with your dog! Your dog has to know what you expect of them. When dogs understand the rules and expectations, most are more than happy to comply and follow. By training your dog you are decreasing the chances of a behavior issue arising that could land them in a shelter! Believe it or not, most dogs are placed in shelters for behaviors issues that could have been helped with training! Here at Meraki K9 we love to see dogs and humans being able to communicate efficiently and effectively!

Cali was such an amazing dog and a fantastic ambassador of the Great Pyrenees breed. She was such an incredible soul and is missed greatly by all those who loved her. 

Thor is happily enjoying retirement from being a demo dog. He is now my grandma's constant shadow, making sure he keeps her company all day long.
