What can I expect when

               adopting a trained dog?

All foster pups trained by SFK9 learn to sit, down, and climb. They are taught proper leash manners as well as entryway etiquette and general household manners. We set a firm foundation for both house and crate training. Our pups are socialized with strangers, children, other dogs, and even cats on a regular basis. They are exposed to real life situations including riding in cars, going to pet stores, playing at dog parks, busy public streets, hiking in forest preserves, and so much more. All our trained pups come with training support to help them transition into their new homes and unlimited follow up training to maintain the skills they have learned during their training with us. We stand behind our students and their families for life!

Where do these dogs come from?

              

SFK9 works with rescues, other trainers, charities providing service dogs, veterinary practices, local licensed breeders, and private owners in need of re-homing their dog for various reasons. In each situation, the dogs we take on are trained before they are re-homed. More often than not, these pups are considered unadoptable or are challenging to re-home due to their behavior when they arrive in our care. We utilize these situations not only help a dog in need, but also as a hands on learning opportunity for our apprentice program. Many of the dogs spend months in training before they are ready to join their new families.

 

In all situations, we want to make it very clear that SFK9 does not own any of these dogs. We are a 3rd party that was hired to provide training services and we network the dogs as a courtesy to the owner. Our services are paid for by the original owner of the dog and are reflected in the adoption fee along with any additional expenses the owner deems fit to include. Payment of adoption fees are to be made directly to the original owner of the dog and not through SFK9. We assist in screening new families as we are most familiar with the dog and what kind of home they would thrive in. Unlimited training follow up provided through SFK9 is a condition listed on the adoption agreement for each dog we train and help network.
