These classes are available as follow up options or just for fun after completing training or an evaluation.
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, 11:00am for large dogs, 12:00pm for small dogs and puppies (no dogs over 30lbs), and 1:00pm and 2:00pm for our large puppies (over 30lbs) and active adults. 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

Board & Train
Imagine a world where…your dog comes when called every time, on or off leash, walks politely when on leash, sits and downs when asked, is socialized with dogs and other family pets, is housebroken, doesn’t jump on people, dig in the yard, bark incessantly, bite or growl at people, lunge at other dogs, and doesn’t guard food and toys.
Wouldn’t that be nice?
It can be a reality with K9 Lifeline’s Board and Train. K9 Lifeline can transform your dog into a happy, well adjusted companion in just 2 weeks. Following the 2 week program it is important for the owner to understand and follow through with the foundation established by K9 Lifeline.

How does it work?
Your dog will be living in a dog friendly enviroment surrounded by other dogs and muliple 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.
