about us


Welcome to Merritt Dog Training, where Ken, the owner and experienced dog behaviorist, brings a wealth of experience and expertise to help you overcome your dog's behavior challenges. With over 20 years of working closely with dogs, Ken has developed a deep understanding of the complexities of canine behavior.

Ken's passion for helping both dogs and people has led him to specialize in training service dogs for various purposes, including assisting veterans, individuals who are deaf or hearing impaired, and those coping with PTSD. He has also trained dogs for funeral homes, where a high level of obedience is necessary due to the frequent presence of these dogs in public settings.

Working with service dogs in demanding environments has honed Ken's skills in behavior modification and obedience training. This experience has given him a high success rate in addressing the common behavior challenges that pet owners face with their furry companions.

At Merritt Dog Training, we understand that each dog is unique and requires personalized attention. Our approach is rooted in compassion, patience, and positive reinforcement-based training methods. We take the time to listen to your concerns and understand your dog's individual needs and personality.

Ken's extensive training, including a 500-hour immersion dog behaviorist course, has equipped him with the knowledge and insight to provide effective and evidence-based solutions. He stays up-to-date with the latest scientific research and techniques in dog behavior, ensuring that you receive the highest standard of professional training.

Building trust is our priority. We are dedicated to establishing a positive and supportive environment for you and your dog. Our goal is to help you build a stronger bond and create a well-behaved, balanced, and joyful companion that brings happiness and enrichment to your life every day.
