Balanced K9s, LLC - Training and Behavior

Amy is a professional dog trainer who has been training dogs for 5 years. She graduated from Loyola University - Chicago in 2016, with a degree in Psychology. Because of Amy’s desire to understand behavior and how people (and animals) learn in different environments, she focused her degree on behavior and learning. Amy currently has a Tibetan Terrier/Poodle Mix. He is trained in obedience, agility and is a trick dog. Paxton has earned his Canine Good Citizen (CGC) and Community Canine Good Citizen (CGC-A), and Amy and Paxton are currently working toward his trick titles. Balanced K9s provides training that works with lasting results in a healthy, positive learning environment.

Why Balanced K9s? I use the term balanced in the direct sense of the word. There should be harmony with you and your pet. The animal should be balanced in terms of body and mind, reducing anxiety and stress -- you teach your pet to relax or play! We are teaching healthy alternatives to behavior so you and your pet can be at ease in the house.
