Dog Training in Lewisville

Looking for world-class dog training in Lewisville, Texas? Look no further! Citadel K9 offers the highest quality obedience training in the country! What makes our training better than all the rest? Our training is built on the experience of police and military K9 trainers. Lives have been placed in the hands (or paws) of our students 100s of times.

Master trainer, Josh Kirby, has taken K9 training courses and adapted them to work for any dog of any breed. You don’t have to have a dog bred for protection or even a dog with a high intellect. We can train any pooch! And we do mean ANY! Our training comes with a lifetime guarantee.

“…it was important we found a place that would treat our dog like a member of their own family. We cannot express in words how happy we are with Citadel K9. Josh took our dog in and treated him like a king. We got multiple text updates with pictures and videos over the two week period. Most importantly, he came home and was so well trained that we’re at a loss for how a person can train a dog this well that quickly…”

Obedience Training in Lewisville

We are located here in the North DFW area, so our trainers are familiar with the everyday experiences of your dog. We will ensure your pet is well behaved for everyday activities like running errands to Home Depot or enjoying dinner on the patio at one of Lewisville’s many dog friendly restaurants.

If you’ve ever been to a dog park like the one in Railroad Park, you know there are often rules to keep everyone and every dog safe. Maybe you wish you could trust your dog off leash at these parks but don’t feel entirely confident of how they might respond. In our training, we teach your dog to respond quickly and obediently to your verbal commands. Being off-leash will never be a worry again.

Does your dog struggle when you use a leash? Has this prevented you from taking advantage of the beautiful dog-friendly hiking trails in Lewisville? Not anymore! Loose leash heeling is another vital skill your dog will learn at Citadel K9.

Having a dog is all about having a friend that you can live with and who adds joy to your life experience.  Having a dog should have to be a struggle.  And it won’t be.


Obedience Training – What’s Included and What to Expect

During your dog’s 2, 3, or 4 week training they will live in the home of one of our certified obedience trainers with no more than 2 other dogs. This is how we ensure your dog gets the dedicated attention and training he or she needs. We also love this board in-home training style because your pet gets 24/7 training. They run errands with us, go to restaurants and practice commands both at home and in public. Your trainer will send you regular updates and photos of your dog so you can follow their progress! You will also receive a go-home lesson to teach you all the new skills you pup has learned. Additionally, all of our training comes with phone and email support both during and after your dog’s stay with us.
