German Shepherd

Welcome to Gallatin K9

Educating, empowering and inspiring dogs and their owners to help them achieve their best life. 

You and your dog will love our unique dog training approach.

Gallatin K9 is focused on providing professional training for all dog owners. Tailoring each training program toward the dog's individual needs and what the owner is looking for.

Fun, informative, and safe lessons are our priority! Learn how to communicate in a more effective and long-lasting way, to create a better relationship with your dog and enjoy the process while doing it. Having a dog as a member of your family can be an exciting and rewarding experience. It also can take a great deal of patience and a commitment to doing what it takes to achieve the relationship you want with them. 

We know all dogs are different, and each dog gets an individualized dog training approach. We believe dogs thrive on structure and clear, consistent communication. Our goal is to help you and your dog understand each other better and live a happy life together!

We believe in a Respectful and Ethical Approach to Training. Our training focuses primarily on enhancing the relationship between Dog and Owner, encouraging the dog to express themselves, and guiding them with a balanced training approach.

Training a Puppy with Snack

What we do 

When you brought home your dog you imagined a harmonious coexistence.

But now you're dealing with leash pulling, barking, growling, chewing, jumping, digging, biting, counter surfing, and they won't come when you call them. Or maybe, your dog is nervous, shy, and just not sure about the world. We can help you overcome all these things and more. Let's give your dog all the tools they need to be seamlessly involved in your life every day! 

Learn how our unique program can help you and your dog live harmoniously and happily together.

WHAT PEOPLE SAY

Beatrice 

Claire understands dogs and clearly loves dogs. Our German Shepherd responded naturally to her pet affection and training. We are looking forward to her "board and train" program in April over our spring break! We have complete trust in her ability and kindness with animals.

Emliy

Claire is amazing and I would recommend her training to everyone. She is so patient and understanding. She is helping my border collie Aussie mix with leash obedience and heal as well as working with us on leash aggression and jumping. It’s a work in progress but my puppy was showing improvement quickly. 10 Stars.

Meagan 

I have two great dogs but was was overwhelmed with how to deal with some of their poor behaviors. I scheduled some personal training sessions with Claire and it was a great experience! Claire is friendly, knowledgeable, accommodating and offers simple, easy to understand instruction. I recommend Claire to anyone seeking dog training.

We brought our 11 month old European Doberman to Claire for some practice and advice on his dog reactivity. She was able to guide and show us effective methods to incorporate to help Odin. We had a great experience, thank you!
