K-9 Korner Inc
K9 Korner is an outstanding facility. I have been a client for 9 years and would only trust my Labrador and Golden Retriever to this facility. Sorry to hear about your misfortune with kennel cough, but truth be told, your dog could pick it up anywhere. Paul and Karen Price run an impeccably clean Kennel. They are true professionals of the trade, highly certified in all areas a dog training. Paul and Karen and their staff are extremely well schooled and treat my dogs like their own. They have been there for us with training, questions, daycare and boarding. K9 Korner is, in fact, the only place I would trust with my dogs. They have gone above and beyond for me on many occasions. And my dogs love it there. In nine years, with two dogs, I have never had a problem. Unfortunately, your experience, if it is true, is an exception, not the rule. Hard to believe this even happened, since they only board to clients. In 9 years, I can recall only one time when an illness went though the kennel. I was notified promptly. The issue was remedied immediately. There are some things you can't control. Bottom line: K9 Korner is an outstanding facility run under superb ownership. Don't let one rotten apple deter you from entrusting your dog with these fine people.
Tips & Advices
In order to be certified as a therapy dog or emotional support dog, animals need to receive an evaluation/written designation from a licensed health professional: social worker, physician, psychiatrist typically. As for service dogs, which are allowed to accompany their owners into most businesses and pet-restricted areas, they can receive training, certifications, and registrations from several organizations such as TDI and United States Service Dog Registry. These certifications are not required by the Americans with Disabilities Act, but may streamline the process of getting a dog access to typically off-limits areas. Service dogs and therapy dogs are not the same thing. The same dog might fall into both categories, but therapy and emotional support animals are not recognized under the ADA.
Aggressive behavior is the most common reason that people seek professional training for their dogs. Aggressive dogs require careful evaluation from a professional to accurately classify and diagnose the behavior. Puppies that display aggressive behavior are often diagnosed as undersocialized or hyperactive, and may evolve out of that behavior with regular obedience training. However, dogs with real aggression issues require specialized training from a behaviorist or trainer who understands genetic and hereditary factors, types of aggression, environmental factors and aggressive treatment methods. The number one suggestion when seeking an aggressive behavior specialist is to ask a trusted veterinarian. Dog rescues or other professionals may also have good referrals.
If a dog doesn’t meet expectations at the end of a training course, it is as likely to be related to the training course or the pet owner as the dog. A recommended next step would be to carefully research more training methods and local trainers to find a program that is better suited to your dog. Another one is to consider whether lack of commitment, inconsistent at-home practice,  or an inconsistent discipline/reward system may have undermined the training program.
Obedience training generally takes place at 6 months, but you can begin training a puppy to socialize with humans and other animals at 7-8 weeks.
Essentially, dogs learn to respond properly to basic commands in obedience class--and humans learn how to properly give those commands. Dogs and owners will also learn how to communicate with each other, and how to avoid distractions or disturbances from the outside. No matter which method of dog training is used, it is necessary to be consistent and committed in order to train a dog. Also, it’s important that a pet owner understand their dog’s temperament and hereditary factors, and find a class and method that is appropriate.
