Our Dog Training Mission

Dog Training - Winter Park FLTraining dogs is not just our business, it is our mission. The Calm K9 believes that every dog can be helped, and we want to share our expertise with dog owners in Winter Park and throughout Central Florida.

From our dog training facility in Ocoee, The Calm K9 provides arguably the best dog training services available in Winter Park and Central Florida.

The Calm K9 Dog Training Technique

Dog Training - Winter Park FLThe foundation of our dog training technique is: Dogs learn best from other dogs. The Calm K9 employs Curtis & Meredith's personal pack as canine dog trainers!

A dog that is reactive or aggressive when joining our pack quickly learns that it is OK to trust a human or another dog. The pack will help an anxious or aggressive dog to relax and learn good manners.

When introduced into a group of relaxed, well behaved, and working canines, dogs observe appropriate behavior. To become part of the pack, dogs need to adapt to the behavior of the pack. When a dog exhibits appropriate behavior, other members of the pack will let them know – and peer approval means much more to a dog than a click or a treat.

It's Never Too Late to Train a Dog

Dog Training - Winter Park FLMany dog owners in Winter Park and areas of Central FL have been told their dogs are "beyond help or training", but The Calm K9 believes that every dog – no matter how aggressive – can be rehabilitated.

Without endangering themselves or their pack, Curtis and Meredith have introduced such dogs to a new life full of structure, rules, and human leadership. "Untrainable" dogs, who had been recommended to be euthanized, have been successfully trained and rehabilitated by The Calm K9.
