Kalie’s K9s uses a positive-first, science-based, balanced training approach so that each dog has an optimal learning experience. We don’t only train dogs to perform or stop certain behaviors, but also help owners learn how to interpret their dog’s behavior. Our goal is to leave clients empowered to lead their dogs, and ensure each dog has what it needs to be a better member of its family and community.
Home Care Services
As a dog owner herself, Kalie knows just how important it is to find San Antonio pet care you can rely on for your precious pets, and every dog owner deserves to know their pet is safe and cared for while they're away from home. Kalie provides home care services for dogs to offer their owners the peace of mind that their pets will be in good hands—whether it's for a walk and some snuggles or if your dog needs medication administered, obedience training, or just potty breaks.
Kalie is certified as a dog trainer and canine behavior specialist through Starmark Academy for Professional Dog Trainers.
Kallie is a Very Patient Trainer
She took a very shy, skeptical GSP puppy and opened her up. Taught her the basic commands and how to walk on a leash. She even helped us with a regular collar and an e-collar. Highly recommended Kalie!!
Trains Through Rewarding Success
I highly recommend Kalie’s K9s for your dog training needs. I chose the homeschool option. Kalie came to my house 5 days a week and worked with my 10 month old puppy on basic obedience such as sit, lay, stay, come, and heal. She trains through rewarding success and Gizmo loves her. At the end of each week Kalie trained the human (me) and I was amazed how much Giz and I learned in such a short amount of time. I was also impressed that she built a fun time for Giz throughout her training session. If you and your dog are lucky enough to get Kalie’s training services you won’t be disappointed!
Very Patient, Compassionate and Calm
We reached out to Kalie because our two pups were very anxious around other dogs at the dog park, had issues with separation anxiety, and were too difficult to manage on walks. She listened carefully to our concerns and worked with our dogs (and us!) in a very patient, compassionate and calm manner. Our pups definitely looked forward to her visits as we all did. We’ve noticed they’re much more comfortable in social situations, including walks and around other people, and are making great progress with other dogs. Her help has been greatly appreciated!

Kalie is an amazing trainer!
When I found Harley, my German Shepard, she was skittish, malnourished, and aggressive. She had cigarette burns on her paws and she did not trust men. My training goals were simple, I wanted to take Harley out in public without her biting or attacking anyone. Kalie was patient with Harley but taught her how to sit and stay until I called her. She taught her how to walk next to me, instead of in front or behind me. By the end of Harley’s training, Kalie was able to pet Harley without any growling, snapping, or barking. Now I take Harley everywhere with me, from hikes to dog friendly spots. I never leave the house without my best friend, and I owe it all to Kalie!

Working with Kalie was great!
We had classes with our one year old golden retriever and learned so much. Kalie was so kind, was very accommodating to our busy life schedules and made sure the training was specific to what our dog needed to learn. our golden is doing so much better following commands from us and has highly improved in social situations. I would definitely recommend it to anyone looking for training classes 🙂
