Making YOUR dog Better.

With Nashville K-9, you can rest assured that we will take ownership of our training and take your pet to new levels of obedience.

Our Background + Service to the Community

As one of the most highly sought-after dog training facilities in the southeastern portion of the United States, we train several hundred dogs each year. Our focus is consumer pet training, but we are also well-versed in the training of working dogs including Police, Search and Rescue, Detection and Personal Protection dogs. 

In service to the community, we voluntarily run government K-9 units, assisting municipalities in Police and Search & Rescue cases and provide several demonstrations per month to various schools, pet stores, humane society functions, churches and more.
