We train you to train your dog! With our award winning private, one-on-one dog training programs, every aspect of your dog’s training is carefully & specifically planned by our training director, Linda Kaim.

We are here to help you!

Do you love your dog, but don’t ‘like’ him very much because of his annoying behavior?

Have you tried other training that just didn’t work?

Is taking your dog to the vet, groomer, or in public a burden because of his pulling, lunging or jumping?

You wanted a companion you can enjoy as a member of the family, not a nuisance you have endure and lock away when family or friends come to visit.

Your dog is more than capable of learning how to be polite on leash or off, around company, and around distractions!

So often, people touch our lives, and they never know what effect they have. Our work with you started us on a road to consistent communication, to honest effort and evaluation, to raising expectations and leaving excuses behind, and to the satisfaction that comes from authentic progress.Thank you for the time you spent with us. It made a difference. I hope you are enjoying life with your family and your young pup.

One of the most important gifts that Linda has given me is the knowledge that Bear’s behavior is dependent on how well (or not so well) I interact with him. Just as children need consistency, so do dogs.

The better I am the better Bear is. Thanks Linda!

I was so shocked the first time Maggie walked “off lead” next to me, that is every dog owners dream! I truly know that Linda cares for all the dogs that she trains because she seemed to take a special interest in every one. I would recommend Linda and Lionheart K9 to everyone who asks. I truly am amazed by Linda’s gift with dogs!

Take a minute and listen to our history.

I am fascinated with puppies and how rapidly they develop. The focus of my work over the last decade has been with early behavioral development and learning in puppies. I am convinced that ‘an ounce of prevention is worth a pound of cure’ in dogs, and have created programs for new puppy owners that reduce the stress very young puppies can create while teaching lifelong skills. Taking experiences from many of the working and performance dog cultures, I have developed and streamlined a concise program exclusively for puppies…
