Obedience Training and Socialization

As of 7/1/2018, an evaluation appointment must be scheduled for anyone prior to enrolling in Obedience Foundation or Level 1 Obedience training courses. To schedule an evaluation, please call 1-844-935-6693.

Cooperhaus K9 specializes in training all breeds of dogs.   Our methods are fully customizable to fit your individual needs and goals. Programs are designed to create a stronger bond between you and your dog while training them to adapt in real life situations.

We offer different levels of obedience classes in group or private settings. Specialty classes such as Agility, Canine Good Citizen (CGC) prep, Reactive Dog and Puppy Socials are also offered.

Cooperhaus K9 believes in a balance between correction and reward based training. Audible and visual distractions are used that simulate environments in real life. Commands are most commonly taught in English and/or German (inquire for other languages).

Protection Dog Training

Prior to entering the protection training program, your dog’s instinctual drives will be evaluated along with their obedience and socialization skills. We responsibly work each dog to the best of their potential using a wide range of training techniques.

Cooperhaus K9 protection training range from family protection dog to business-security dog programs.

Specialty Classes

Pack Walk

An opportunity for you and your 4 legged pal to participate in a trainer led excursion. Outside the pleasure of being outdoors and obtaining some welcomed exercise, such ventures allows for you to gauge your training progress in environments outside the training facility


Build your dog’s confidence, strength, and their bond with you through the use of our agility equipment

Agility training is all about building a common language between dog and owner. It teaches you to use body language to communicate clearly and effectively

Agility provides the kind of exercise that actually improves a dog’s behavior. Have you ever taken your dog for a long run, only to bring him home and find that he’s actually more hyper and crazy than when you started? That’s because vigorous exercise is good for your dog's body, but it does nothing to exercise his/her brain

Nose Work

Want to give your dog a job to do in which he/she is guaranteed to be successful. This is it. In this class, the dog learns to use his/her most powerful sense, the nose. Depending on the dog’s ability and advancement, he/she will learn to sniff out the targeted specimen. And most importantly, he’ll have fun doing it.

If you have more than one dog in your household, you may find it challenging to manage training at times. There are strategies we provide that can help make it easier to train in a multi-dog household
