Stop Bad Dog Behavior – and Create a Loving Bond that Lasts a Lifetime!

Cathy’s K9 Kids provides step-by-step puppy and adult dog training in your home, nearby park, or around your neighborhood in Cleveland, Ohio's east side suburbs.
My programs offer reliable, effective solutions to all of your dog behavior challenges – from housebreaking and house manners to off-leash control and politeness with strangers and other dogs. Do you have a dog with a sweet and friendly personality? You might want to consider my Therapy Dog Training Program.

Is trying to control your dog’s behavior wearing you out? Whether this is the first dog you’ve ever owned or you’ve been a Pet Parent all of your life, you know that there is nothing more challenging than when your dog doesn’t listen to you or do what he or she is told. I’m here to help – with comprehensive, customizable training programs that are tailored to your needs, and to the needs of your dog. No harsh corrections, no yelling, and no treat bribes. Your dog will want to do as you tell him, because your attention and affection will be his paycheck.
