Great Dog School! To be completely honest- great people school for those who want a good relationship with their pup!

-Rebecca and Maverick


There’s a lot of dog trainers in the KC metro.  Have you inquired about your dog trainer’s credentials or continuing educations? 

We know the frustration and exasperation that goes along with doggy disobedience.  When you’re dog has hurt someone or can’t relax the situation can seem insurmountable.  The Certified trainers at Canine Solutions not only know the feeling because they’ve been in your shoes with their own dogs but they’ve also undertaken hundreds of hours of continuing education to ensure that you are getting the BEST science backed information to address your canine conundrum.

Our lead trainers have a combined 20 years of training experience and have voluntarily achieved multiple advanced behavior and training certifications.  They are constantly updating their repertoire through seminars, webinars, and other advanced learning opportunities so they can share with you the superior scientifically sound methods of Positive Reinforcement.  Through +R training, our clients achieve their desired outcome with the least amount of stress and fallout when compared to other training methods.

We look forward to demonstrating the powerful powerful tools of Positive Reinforcement and showing you how to use these tools overcome historical and future challenges you may encounter on your journey with your friend.


It’s okay to be frustrated, it’s what you do next that makes the difference.  Success requires a growth mindset and a willingness to take the steps necessary to achieve your goals.  Whether you choose to increase your own skill set or let a professional relieve your task burden our trainers will be empathetic and honest about what it take to achieve the outcome you desire.

It’s okay if you don’t know what to do yet, we are here to guide you!  If dominating your dog doesn’t vibe with your personality rest assured that there are peaceful ways to train your dog that still work!  You want the best for your friend which is why it’s important to chose training methods that actually resolve the underlying issue.  If holistic welfare is on your radar then you’re in the right spot!


Like people, dogs are a complicated system of interwoven parts.  Health impacts behavior and chronic stress contributes to poor quality of life.  Diet, exercise, mental enrichment, and access to safe structured environments are all necessary parts of any training program.  In many cases the use of calming supplements, chiropractic care, and Eastern or Western Veterinary care may be recommended to facilitate your dog’s journey to emotional wellness.
