In our shadow program, Jeff and his team will share with you all aspects of running Solid K9 Training’s award-winning training center, including the daycare, Board & Play and Board & Train programs. 

Depending on the length of the program, the shadow program will give you the opportunity to learn more about:


* Dog rehabilitation

* Leash reactivity

* Prong collar work

* E-Collar training

* Dog socialization

* Separation anxiety

* Dog-dog aggression

* Dog-human aggression

* Pool/swimming training (seasonal)

* Treadmill work

* Running the training center

* Private client sessions

* Social media 

and much more!


Our shadow program is geared towards those who are looking to become a dog trainer or better their skills as one. It is recommended that you have some training experience prior to coming in order to get the most out of the program. Each day of shadowing runs from 9am until 5pm, during which time you will shadow not only Jeff and learn about the business and personal growth, but the other members of the Solid K9 Training staff. You can sit in on phone calls and client communications.  Of note, there may be up to two Shadows at the center at one time, and Jeff may not be here every day of your shadow program, depending on its length. You may bring up to one of your well-behaved personal dogs to join you. (Please contact our front office for details regarding the vaccinations we require of any dog at our center.)  You must be responsible for your own transportation, food and housing. If you need a recommendation for local dog-friendly hotels, just ask us!
