Training Programs

Our training programs are designed to provide you the capability to bring your dog anywhere, and the comfort knowing they will be obedient wherever that may be. Sunday brunch, hikes, events or festivals won’t be a problem or distraction for you or your pup after you both have completed our training program. The ability to take your dog with you places will inevitably (and substantially) grow you and your dog’s relationship in ways you could never imagine.

About Us

At RCK9, we recognize that unless the owner understands how to maintain their dog's training, every dog will inevitably regress. To put it simply, dog training never ends. Every time you interact with your dog is a training moment. In order to avoid training regression and protect your investment, our programs are designed with varying levels of personal instruction. These personal training sessions will set you and your dog up for a much higher degree of success by giving you the tools needed to continue training long after your sessions with us are completed. You will be taught the fundamentals of canine behavior/psychology, how your dog was trained using those fundamentals, how to properly handle your newly trained dog, and how to sustain your dog's training long term. These skills will ensure an unmatched level of success that others can only dream of.

Our Staff

Our experience training and handling working dogs for the United States Marine Corps, Private Military Corporations, and Federal Law Enforcement is evident by the dogs we train and rehabilitate. Because of the knowledge gained from a career spent training and handling dogs at the highest levels, RCK9 is able to expertly train your dog or analyze, diagnose, and remedy your dog's behavioral deficiencies. We utilize a combination of innovative & balanced training techniques that are custom-tailored to fit your dog’s individual needs. Because of this RCK9 is able to achieve the highest levels of success in all of our training programs for our clients.

What Our Clients Have to Say About Us

Audrey S.

Our pup just graduated from advanced obedience training and aggression rehabilitation with Rocket City K9.

When we started training 8 weeks ago, Vigo wouldn’t go around another dog without attacking - it had gotten that bad. But now we have our good boy back who can go out with us and enjoy life! Trevor was such a phenomenal trainer who really worked us through how we were reinforcing bad behaviors and how to create new positive behaviors. If you have an anxious, aggressive or poor mannered pup, call Rocket City K9 and get your lives and good dog back!

We purchased Rocket City K9’s puppy program for our 9 week old German Shepherd puppy named Axel. The training taught him the commands Sit, Stay, Come, Down and to walk well on a leash. Rocket City K9’s Trevor Smith did a great job working with Axel and us! He not only trains your dog, he trains you on how to train your dog. We plan to get more advanced training once Axel is 6 months old. I highly recommend him and his company if you are in need of training for your dog or training for you so you can understand how to handle your dog.

Trevor really helped me in training my wild pup! We can walk enjoyably and she understands meal manners, door manners, and meeting people manners. She is still a puppy and is full of energy and defiance but I can work with her now to enjoy her and help her become a “young dog lady”.

Trevor is friendly, easy to understand, and a great teacher with unsurpassed experience and knowledge. He’s been teaching me more than I’ve been able to teach my dog. Definitely worth investing the time to learn more about you and your dog

Trevor is a true professional. We were only successful because of him! I cannot say enough about how great of an instructor he is. Fiona, the dog, learned a lot but more importantly, Trevor trained me to train my dog. As a result, we have bonded even closer. For those who want to support those who served our country, call Rocket City K9. Semper Fi from an old Army Soldier

I knew from the first training session with Trevor this was the best decision I could have made for my German Shepherd and I. Trevor taught us how to communicate clearly, make corrections, praise, reinforcement exercises, all the advanced obedience, socialization, and overall how to strengthen my relationship with my pup. I am incredibly thankful for Rocket City K-9 services and excited for all the adventures I can have with my dog now with the confidence I have in our training.

Trevor was absolutely wonderful with my 15 week miniature Dachshund, Callie. He addressed all of my concerns and needs with my new puppy. She now follows the commands sit, stay, come, down, and walks on a leash without trying to sniff or eat everything she passes. He also taught me the methods I needed to continue working with her on a daily basis. He was very thorough and even helped us socialize her by taking us on an outing to the local outdoor mall. Thank you so much Trevor! Callie will miss you and all of your rewards (treats and playful scratches).

Highly recommend!! I contacted Rocket City K9 to set up puppy training for our new Cane Corso puppy Dozer. Trevor got us on his schedule immediately and we hit the ground running the day after we brought him home. It has been YEARS since we have had a puppy, so we wanted to get set up for success. Dozer presented us with some unexpected challenges, and Trevor helped us through them all. I am extremely pleased with Dozer's progress in the first 6 weeks of training we have done so far. With Trevor's guidance, we feel more confident to handle our newest addition. Thank you, Trevor and Rocket City K9!!
