We train for unsurpassed temperament and loyalty so you can be assured that your dog will be well behaved and you and your children will remain safe.
We have the ability to train any breed of dog. Contact us about any specific requests you might have beyond our included commands and manners training.
Our master trainer, Josh Kirby, is a police officer, USPCA judge, has certified hundreds of police K9 teams. Both his police K9 and sport dogs have won numerous national awards.
Citadel K9 trains the most obedient dogs in the world. They have to be, it’s their job. Our experience goes far beyond home obedience. Our trainers have produced some of the most elite police and protection dogs in the country.
This level of training goes above and beyond standard obedience training so you can be assured your dog will respond immediately and accurately to your every command.
We understand that Citadel K9 trained dogs must also be safe and loyal members of the family. This is one reason we board your dog in our own homes while exposing them to every day family activities. We firmly believe that the key to true obedience is a bond of mutual respect between the dog and the handler so we take care to offer your dog the same love it experiences in your own home.
The in-home board and train system allows our trainers to be 100% hands on with our clients’ dog at all times. Each trainer only takes a maximum of 3 dogs at a time ensuring your dog receives more training time than any other company over the duration of the 2 week course. Your dog will not be left or boarded at a facility and will live in the home of a trainer 24/7 under their supervision and care.
Our trainers treat your dog like a member of their own family, taking them for walks and running errands with them. This helps the trainer bond with the dog and also provides unique every day training opportunities in different environments presenting accurate real world training scenarios that better prepare your dog to return home fully trained.
“I highly recommend this company. Josh is one of those guys with incredible integrity and dedication to the K9 world.”
