The advantage of my training philosophy is that your dog works solely for your praise vs. treats or toys. In a practical world, you, the owner will not always have a toy or treat at hand when an emergency may arise. Obedience training also helps keep a home in harmony, where you, the owner, are the leader and your beloved four legged friend happily follows suit. Dogs really gravitate to leaders and have the desire to please their owners. I work closely with dog and owner(s) keeping man dog’s best friend.

The fact that my business is flexible with hours and location makes it more
practical for those various owners who have different lifestyles. My services
are convenient and can fit into practically anyone’s regimen. My services

it easier for those who have busy lifestyles and still wish to make time to

relationship and companionship man and dog can establish. There is nothing
like it.

“Rockne rec
eived ‘Most Improved Camper of the Month’ at doggie day care
last month thanks to Darrah & Underdog K
-
9 Academy! This is a huge
achievement as my 100lb Rottweiler needed a little bit of obedience and
guidance. As a two
-
year old, he has a lot of energy and
spunk. His "cuteness"
was wearing thin because anything on floors or countertops was fair game for
him. After Darrah's training, we still have our sweet baby Rockne, but now he
plays only with his toys. Walks and runs are much more enjoyable now that he
do
es not pull on the leash and heels on command. He sits on command, which
is very nice when guests come over. We thank Darah for getting our house
back and still keeping our baby as sweet as ever!”

My deep commitment to improving the well
-
being of Dog and Owner

I have a strong desire to keep dogs in happy homes which in turn helps
control
the increasing population in animal shelters; by educating owners on
leadership (opening up a clear line of communication between handler and
dog) and responsibilities that come with having a dog; and working with
shelter dogs to make them more adoptable (
by ironing out undesirable
behaviors in exchange for desirable ones.

Call to schedule an appointment for a customer evaluation

There must first be a customer evaluation to assess the dog’s history and to
identify the
owner(s) goal(s). It is requested that all persons residing in the
household be present at the time of the customer evaluation, as to identify
issues each member may be experiencing with their furry friend…which gives
the trainer a greater awareness of the

circumstances. The customer
evaluation provides a platform for the trainer to collect all information needed
pertaining to each dog so that a beneficial recommendation may be made.
Upon completion of the evaluation, trainer and owner(s) collectively devel
op
a plan to obtain and maintain their goals, resulting in a stable happy
environment and relationship between man and dog.

Baxter

Our family realized the need for a trainer for our Morkie, Baxter, a few months
after he joined our family. The “cuteness” o
f his mischievous ways was
wearing thin and we were all ready for an attitude adjustment. Darah and
Underdog K
-
9 Academy came to our rescue, providing guidance and training
right in our home. Along with teaching the basic commands and respectful
behavior t
o Baxter, Darah was able to see first
-
hand just how Baxter
interacted with us in everyday situations and provided solutions to his
misconduct in his actual environment. She also instilled confidence in our
family, allowing us to become the leaders Baxter n
eeded. Life with Baxter is
more calm and enjoyable thanks to Darah and her patient, caring, no
-
nonsense and methodical approach to dog training."
