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.
Who We Are
Nashville K-9's large team is comprised of high level dog trainers capable of training a pet to federal level law enforcement dogs, and proven to. Utilizing progressive, reward based training methods, we aim to solve your daily dog obedience and behavior programs. With the experience of several thousands of dogs, no one in middle Tennessee can match our combined experience.
What We Do
As the largest canine training facility in Tennessee, we’re able to offer the most extensive dog training programs. Our in-facility training program is our board and train. You simply drop your dog off, and our team of professionals handles the rest. At the end of training we place the parents through a training course teaching you everything we taught your dog! We do not use electronic collars or choke collars in any of our training programs.
Nashville K-9 has evolved and changed over the years, which has strengthened our training technique and mission as a company.
