These classes are available as follow up options or just for fun after completing training or an evaluation.
***Saturday Socials are temporarily on hold due to COVID-19 restrictions***
K9 Lifeline’s Saturday Socials are a unique approach to helping dogs maintain and regain social skills by allowing dogs to interact in a safe, structured environment. Unlike a dog park, K9 Lifeline monitors interactions to allow dogs to thrive in social settings. Dog’s will learn to self regulate and learn proper social interactions. Through guidance, dogs will learn to use their natural instincts to improve aggression, shy, fearful, and other problem behaviors. K9 Lifeline has helped thousands of clients with their dogs to regain and maintain social skills through this unique and interactive program!
Saturday Social Schedule & Evaluation (required to participate) K9 Lifeline offers Saturday Socials for owners and their dogs every Saturday at 10:00am for large dogs, 11:00am for our large puppies (over 30lbs) and active adults, 12:00pm for small dogs and puppies (no dogs over 30lbs). The classes are 30 minutes long, please arrive 10-15 mins. early. No appointment is needed once your dog has passed its evaluation. Every dog is different and evaluations and pretraining may differ greatly from dog to dog. To run these socials safely K9 Lifeline individually evaluates each dog that participates. The fee for the initial evaluation is $100.00. After the dog has been accepted into the program, you and your dog are welcome to participate any Saturday. For the safety of all the dogs and clients in attendance, some dogs may need a little more work before attending and be asked to sign up for daycare or receive training before being able to join. To really see changes in your dogs behavior K9 Lifeline highly recommends training to be able to teach YOU how to better work with your dog in home and outside of K9 Lifeline. Training and Socials go hand-in-hand and dogs that go through our training programs are guaranteed access to Saturday Socials.
$100 is the initial fee for evaluation, not all dogs pass, but this fee can be rolled into any of our training programs801.272.1159 Email Us
Walk The Walk ®
Its easy to talk the talk, but you have to Walk the Walk!

This program is perfect for the dog that needs more freedom with control and the owner that is ready to take the Next Step! Since The Next Step is a program option after a foundation has been created through one of our other programs, all training fees will be deducted to make it affordable for anyone that wants to move forward with this amazing program.
Imagine a world where…your dog comes when called every time, on or off leash, walks politely when on leash, sits and stays when asked, is socialized with dogs and other family pets, is housebroken, doesn’t jump on people, dig in the yard, and bark incessantly?
Wouldn’t that be nice?
It can be a reality with K9 Lifeline’s Next Step Training. K9 Lifeline can transform your dog into a happy, well adjusted companion in just 4 weeks. Following the 4 week program it is important for the owner to understand and follow through with the foundation established by K9 Lifeline. This program includes a lifetime of support following the training. This program is customized to meet you and your dogs needs and goals. For 4 weeks your dog will learn how to be a dog again. K9 Lifeline will work with your dog in a fun and friendly manner to help reach the goals established prior to training.
How does it work?
Your dog will be living in a dog friendly environment surrounded by other dogs and multiple trainers. Combining pack mentality and structure your dog will learn to be a dog again, and will return to your home a well balanced member of your family.
