Welcome to John Soares K9 Training…

Flexibility is what puts John Soares ahead of the class.

When training dogs, it’s best to have a world class team that can take a balanced approach based on your specific needs. JSK9 has the experience to deliver the results you need in weeks — not months — for your family dog. We are considered trainer’s trainer and have proven time and time again to rehabilitate dogs deemed too aggressive or too disobedient into a trained family dog.

Following a simple formula of practice and consistency Rocco has in a very short time exceeded all of my expectations. He not only showed extremely well but be he was magnificent with the spectators, press and media he encountered.



After we met with John, we could tell that he had the knowledge and resources to provide highly customized training that met our specific needs as a family. We like the fact that John’s facility is open rain or shine.  Thank you for everything, John!!!
