My interest in training started with my first Doberman. Owning a Doberman was and remains a serious responsibility to me. They are my largest pleasure in life, next to my two legged family. Started training as a hobby and competing in various sports in 1995. What a wonderful time in my life. Finding what I truly loved to do. After several years I decided to work with the public and opened AK9 in 2001. My goal everyday is to make a positive effect in peoples lives. Sharing my skills of training with others is so rewarding. Improving the relationship between a owner and their pet is huge. If you have ever truly loved an animal then you understand.
