Passionate Pet Educators

We are Fair & Balanced Dog Trainers

Ahead of the class, trusted, cutting-edge dog training academy.


We are proud to be a trusted educator of numerous organizations and agencies, dog sport clubs, and most importantly families around America who demand the highest level of training exclusively in a board & train environment. Our best-selling services, Basic Obedience and Off-leash Obedience, have been centerpieces of our growth for decades, helping families to achieve the most substantial relationship with their dogs.

We are a passion-driven school that takes pet education and dog training very seriously, whose values go beyond just looking at problems, but looking at creative solutions to exceed the expectations of those who entrust us with their pets. Led by Master Dog Trainer John Soares, the John Soares K9 Training team operates out of both Ringwood, NJ and near Philadelphia, with customers and graduates located all over the world. We work with individuals and families with just about any type of dog, as well as specialized dog handlers looking for additional education in the sport of Schutzhund.

Ready when you are

Your dog isn’t going to train itself (in good behavior). So let’s get the ball rolling. To receive a no-obligation pet evaluation, just let us know a few details. We’ll be in touch very soon. Please use the phone number below or send us a message using our inquiry form.

Our prices for dog training are based on an in-person evaluation of your pet.
