Quality Dog Training

Belgian tervuren heeling.

Does your dog  jump all over your guests?
Does your dog ignore you when you call him?
Do you dream of having a well mannered dog who is the envy of the neighborhood?

We want to help! Tell us all about your dog, and we will get you started on the path to a perfectly mannered pet.

Kentucky Dog Training LLC is a full service dog training company that is proud to offer services to Lexington, Louisville, central Kentucky, and the surrounding area. We have a program for every lifestyle, ranging from group classes to extensive boarding school programs. Owning a dog is supposed to be fun, but nuisance behaviors and poor obedience is just plain stressful. Your dog is going to be a 10-15 year commitment, and those years should be filled with pleasant walks and good manners, not dragging you around the neighborhood. If you aspire to have a dog that wants to focus on you, walks calmly at your side, and always comes when called, then we would love to help you reach your goals. Schedule a free consultation and we can get you set up with a training program that will benefit you and your dog for years to come.

About Us

Sam Adams has been working with dogs for nearly a decade. She started off in the sport of agility with her rescue dog, Zoe, and quickly became hooked on dog sports and behavior work. After years spent competing in various dog sports, Sam decided to make her passion a career. She has interned with leading protection sport trainer Todd Dunlap, and spent three years doing board and trains with The Doghouse LLC and Carrie Silva in Florida.

Sam continues to expand her resume by attending seminars and conferences with leading dog trainers from around the world. She also competes with her personal dogs in several different dog sports. She also worked as a vet assistant before becoming a professional trainer, which adds to her ability to care for your beloved dog.

These experiences with hundreds and hundreds of dogs give Sam a unique perspective on training. If you get your dog trained with her, you can expect a customized training program built to suit you and your dog.

We offer dog training services to central Kentucky and southern Ohio and Indiana.

In home dog training services are limited in the greater Louisville, KY area, as well as in Cincinnati, Dayton, northern Kentucky, and Indiana. We do offer pick up and drop off services for those living in Louisville and the surrounding area.

Our Dog Training Services

We offer a variety of services to match any goals and any budgets. Our most popular programs are our board and train programs. Dogs in our boarding school will get several daily sessions with a professional trainer. They also receive lots of social interactions with other dogs and field trips to train in places like local parks. All of our board and train programs include several transition lessons to ensure that everything that your dog learns transfers back to you.

We also offer private lesson programs for those who want to be more involved in the day to day training of their dog or puppy. These programs vary in length depending on your dog’s age, behavior issues, and what your training goals are. We offer both in-facility and in-home options for our Lexington clients, and may recommend a specific option based on the issues that your dog is having. For example, a dog who us pulling badly on leash can fit into either model, but a dog who is aggressive to house guests would be better suited to in-home lessons.

Group classes are another option for the do it yourself type person, and have the benefit of having plenty of other dogs to work around as a distraction. Our group classes are available in several different tiers. They start with the basics, either in our S.T.A.R Puppy class or in our Basic Obedience class. Dogs then graduate to more advanced classes, such as the Canine Good Citizen class, therapy dog classes, sports classes, and proofing classes.
