Blue Line K-9 has a different approach to dog training.
It feels like play, but seriously works.
We help you develop the dog’s natural desire to be with you.

We’re different!

Our training is FUN for you and your dog:

A well-behaved dog responds to your commands because you have everything it wants: food, fun and love.

We teach you what makes your dog tick. We help you become his teacher and leader, and give you practice making it work.

Our group workshops help you develop that relationship, and learn to get a very well behaved dog.

Our 1-1 sessions start with understanding you and your dog. What do you want to be able to do with your dog? What are your dogs strengths and challenges? Then we get to work on exactly what you need.

Who we serve:

First time dog owners

Many first time dog owners are a little nervous about what it takes to properly train and control your pet. We make it a fun and easy process for both of you.


Come to us with your new little cutie and leave with a loving relationship and the confidence that your pet will be safe and well-behaved indoors and out.

Rescue dogs

We will help you develop your rescue dog into a happy, loving companion who is safe and well-behaved. Some of these dogs come with baggage. We’ll help you figure it out and ensure your pet trusts you, and you them. We recommend starting out with a 1-1 evaluation at your place or ours.

Problem dogs

Some dogs have issues. Aggressive dogs can be a nuisance and a danger to themselves and to others. We will help rebuild the broken trust that is behind most aggressive behavior, and ensure your pet will be a loyal, safe companion. Sign up for an evaluation.

People who want to have more fun with their dog

We have weekly workouts, agility classes, tracking and more for those who simply want to have more fun and more exercise with their dogs.

Advanced training

We offer Canine Good Citizen certification and beyond. These classes are open to graduates of our entry-level classes or with an evaluation. With this AKC certification you can be confident taking your dog places, and assure others (such as landlords) that your dog is well-behaved. Who’s a good dog? Now everyone knows.


    Teresa came to our house tonight and graciously spent over 2 hours working with us and our 3 boys correcting their behavior and our tactics. Her 11 years of expertise certainly showed. We are looking forward to seeing progress in our boys with all of her helpful tips!


    I am amazed at how quickly Mike was able to identify ways to work better with my dog. No longer am I being pulled on walks and we both come back happier! I can’t wait to start classes and continue learning. His knowledge and patience put me at ease and made the training fun. Thanks Blue Line K-9!!!


    We had Teresa come out and help with our 18 month old rescue Lab/Weimaraner mix and her advice has helped tremendously. Teresa was friendly, explained things perfectly, and made it easy to understand. We will definitely use her again when it comes time for us to do the e-collar training.


    Mike and his team truly care about their clients and their canine companions. Rare is the trainer who has fully researched, and truly understands, the scientific and psychological concepts which influence modern dog training theories. This research and expertise is what sets Mike apart and makes him a truly unique and valuable trainer. He is a wealth of knowledge and experience. I highly recommend the team of trainers at Blue Line K-9 to anyone, from the new puppy owner to experienced dog owners. Blue Line K-9 will help make sense of the sometimes contradictory and confusing world of dog training and ensure that you and your pup bond in ways that are healthy and responsible.


    The owner himself, Michael, took almost an hour of his free time, unpaid, to give me advice and tell me he didn’t think I needed training at this time for my dog. I’ve never met someone so honest and caring about animals and their owners to help them for free and not take advantage of making money. Never been more grateful to someone! I took his advice and because of it my dog and child can live peacefully and stress free! When I do need training I’ll never go anywhere else!
