Our Reviews

Considering her age, I wasn’t very hopeful that the training would have any effect on her but it absolutely did. Joe answered all of the questions I had very promptly and was very honest throughout the whole process.

We recommend Joe and his team 100%. Before working with Strategic K-9, Plato was nervous and reactive in public spaces, but now he feels confident and calm!

Emily Bivens December 2023

Great experience working with John. He really taught us how to communicate with our GSD Toga. He's a real professional!

David Avanzo March 2024

Joe is fantastic. At the initial evaluation, we knew immediately Joe was the right trainer just by the way he interacted with our dog Apollo. He explained his training program and interacted with Apollo in a kind and calm manner.

Ronald Desnoyers March 2024

I cannot recommend Joe and his team enough for their outstanding training program ! After reviewing multiple training programs in RI, we landed on Strategic K-9 Training because of their one on one approach right at your home.

HIGHLY RECOMMEND! I rescued Tate in April of this year and right away I knew I wanted him to gain a sense of stability and routine. The shelter I adopted him from recommended training just from what they knew of his past.

Thank you Joe and Amy, you guys are truly the best out there! My boyfriend and I are so lucky to have found the two of you and can’t thank you enough for not only training our dogs, but for training us so that we can be the best for them!

Sydney was very helpful to our family learning how to properly challenge and train Wendy, our 1 year old Shepard/bull terrier mix. I would absolutely recommend strategic k-9 to my friends :)

Stephanie Stephenson January 2024

Our 2 year old mixed breed Enzo, who we adopted as a puppy, started showing aggressive behavior when people he was unfamiliar with came into our home or onto our property. Joe saw this first hand when he came to do an evaluation.

Frequently Asked Questions

How much do you charge per lesson?

Before providing a quote, we need to conduct an evaluation to understand your dog's specific requirements. This allows us to tailor our training programs effectively to ensure the best results for you and your dog.

Do I come to you and do the training?

We come to your home or you have the option to come to our facility and do the training in your environment. At times we can meet at public places, Example: Home Depot, or near by Park.

Do you train puppies?

Yes, but a puppy must be at least 4 months of age and up to date with all their shots.

How do we get started with the training?

Step one is to schedule an Evaluation for you and your dog. Once we complete this evaluation, we will customize a personal program for you and your dog.

Do you use E-Collar?

Yes, for off leash training, some programs include E-Collar in pricing.

Do you use treats/cookies in your training?

No, we replace treats with "Praise". Dogs love a pat on the head for a good job. We want your dog to listen to you, not for what you're holding in your hand.

How do you socialize my dog/dogs?

We bring our own dogs to help socialize and teach your dog/dogs how to properly act. Another Option is you bring your dog to our Facility for Socializing.
