Make your ideal dog a reality.
Throughout my career, I have seen one K-9 program after another, in various police, military and civilian organizations and have met some of the best trainers in the world, but I have never met anyone as accomplished and experienced as John Soares.

What We Do
Our focus is on delivering mutual benefit: Win-win outcomes that make life better for pet owners and dogs alike through world-class board & train programs. We also train and place some of the world’s finest protection dogs. These are family and executive-level protection dogs. They are NOT attack dogs. Our service dogs are certified and trained for your specific disability. These are not ESAs (emotional support animals). Whether you need a K9 for personal protection or a service dog for a disability, contact us to discuss your needs.
All of our services require an in-person evaluation. As an essential business, we conduct in-person evaluations with a prior appointment only. Whether your inquiry is related to basic obedience, off-leash obedience, personal protection, or protection dog sales for family and executive protection, our programs are customized to meet your needs. We do not provide prices without an evaluation since our training is completely customized to you.
→ Promote family and personal safety.
→ Improve the bond between human and dog.
→ Provide a wide array of educational solutions.
We have a sense of urgency in our commitment to continually transform and improve the bond between human and K9. Our approach encourages and equips individuals to focus on lifelong learning, communication with their dog, and grow in a healthy way. We also greatly believe our mission is to promote family and personal safety and know that personal protection dogs can be the difference in saving lives. We take great pride in providing both pet training and high-level personal protection solutions to the public.
Flexibility is what puts John Soares ahead of the class.
Whether you’re looking to purchase one of the finest protection dogs in the world or looking for training for a dog you recently acquired, you need a complete dog trainer that can give you the results you need. And easily learn how to manage your dog in your home or out in public in less time than you can imagine. A canine expert that educates you on everything from obedience and behavioral training to advanced dog training and off-leash control of your pet when necessary. And gets your dog motivated to follow commands consistently. And generalizes the training to your entire family. And provides follow-up training and answers all of your questions. Agreed? Great. Ready when you are.
Board & Train Programs
When training dogs, it’s best to have a world-class team that can take a balanced approach based on your specific needs, whether that’s basic obedience training, off leash obedience (walking your K9 off lead), or behavior modification to address aggression, biting, and toy possession. JSK9 has the experience to deliver the results you need in weeks — not months — for your family dog in our reputable board & train programs. We are considered the trainer’s trainer and have proven time and time again to help people rehabilitate dogs deemed too aggressive, too disobedient, and too dangerous into well-trained canines.
Personal Protection Dogs
Responsibility for bringing security and peace of mind to our clients through world class protection dogs is something we take great pride in. Our family protection dogs, executive protection dogs, and home protection dogs, along with other dogs with protection training, are available for the right owner. Don’t find yourself settling for a guard dog that doesn’t have the dialed-in world class training that’s ultimately necessary. Protect yourself and your family with the most high caliber protection dog available through a customized matching process to your needs.
Our Training Methods
With over 30 years of experience as a K9 specialist and over 50+ years of combined experience when you include our team, we believe the owner or handler should work as one with the dog.
