About RK9 Training LLC

At home dog training showcasing the brilliant mind of your furry family.

Core Values

  1. Compassion: I believe in approaching every dog and their human companion with empathy and understanding. By recognizing and respecting the unique needs and emotions of each individual, I strive to create a safe and nurturing environment for learning and growth.

  2. Positive Reinforcement: I am committed to utilizing positive reinforcement techniques in training, focusing on rewarding desired behaviors rather than punishing unwanted ones. By fostering a positive and encouraging atmosphere, I empower dogs to make choices that lead to success and strengthen the bond between them and their human partners.

  3. Education and Empowerment: I value the importance of education and strive to empower dog guardians with knowledge and skills to become confident and effective trainers themselves. Through clear communication, guidance, and ongoing support, I aim to equip dog guardians with the tools they need to build strong, lifelong relationships with their furry companions.

Kelly Weekly and her dog Angel.

Welcome! I'm Kelly, a certified dog trainer dedicated to positive, force-free methods. With over 10 years of experience and certifications from the Victoria Stilwell Academy and CATCH Canine Trainers Academy, I prioritize the well-being of animals. As a member of the Pet Professional Guild, I stand for no force, no fear, and no pain in training.

Hailing from West Virginia, I draw inspiration from its natural beauty and believe in building strong, trusting relationships with dogs. I've volunteered at animal shelters and worked at an aquarium, gaining diverse experience. Let's work together to create a harmonious bond between you and your furry companion!
