It is rare to meet someone whose life hasn't been touched by cancer. The purpose of BARK FOR LIFE is to recognize the importance of the pets that have helped us through that journey and to honor the pets we have lost to cancer. BARK FOR LIFE is a fundraiser for the American Cancer Society and if you are any of the following, we would love to have you participate with us:
- Person/Family with a dog
- Rescue Group
- Organization or Business who would like to sponsor this event
- Anyone who loves being around dogs and their owners
We are looking for stories to read at the BARK FOR LIFE of how your pets helped you through dealing with cancer. In 300 words or less send them to me — Katie K9 at my email address above — if you have a picture you want to share — send that along too!
For 31 years dog owners and industry professionals across the Twin Cities metro area have turned to Katie K-9 in times of need. She is dedicated to further educating the everyday family and their dog through obedience classes, private lessons and a weekly call-in radio show.
You too can learn from her time honored training methods. Katie offers year round obedience training in a fun, relaxing, friendly country atmosphere! You won't find expensive gimmicks or treats, just simple “K-9” logic and kind-hearted patience.

With Katie's small class sizes, enthusiastic style and warm sense of humor, Katie will give you and your dog the inspiration and motivation to polish your pupper and make him shine as a life long well-mannered companion! Join the thousands of dog owners across the Twin Cities and greater Minnesota area... Train your dog or puppy right the first time and for a lifetime.
At Katie’s K9’s there are NO TREATS to get your dog motivated to work for you. YOU are the treat. Verbal and physical praise is all your dog really needs from you. Your dog is now working from his heart and NOT their stomach. It’s the beginning of a GREAT working TEAM!
Yes! When you have a treat, your dog will do just about anything to get it from you. Now ask him when you do not have that treat…. You will ALWAYS have yourself, but you will NOT ALWAYS have a treat. Learn how to get your dog to work for you because he WANTS too and not because you have a treat in your hand or in some cases — your mouth.
If your dog was trained with treats, no problem, Katie can help you lose the treats and get you and your pupper working as a TEAM.
No dog is too old to learn good manners! At any age, any dog can learn or re-learn anything. The only thing is…. YOU have to be willing to change and be willing to learn so you can teach your pupper.
Katie teaches hand-signals along with verbal commands.
There are 5 different types of training collars to try. No one collar works for all dogs. Each dog is an individual, we need to see what will work for you and your dog.
- PUPPY Classes — for ages 12 weeks to 5 months
- BEGINNER I — for dogs 6 months to 100 years old - 5 Weeks/1 hour per week
- A “QUICKIE” Class — a one -time 2½ hour Beginner I class — for people on a tight schedule. This gets you both started right!
- BEGINNER II — for my students that want to learn more.
- NUTRITION Classes — What your dog eats makes a BIG difference on how they feel and how they learn. Many behavior problems can be solved by changing their diets and adding supplements. Along with having a healthier and happier pupper, with fewer vet bills too! Classes are now held around the Twin Cities at Katie K-9's and also at other locations, so you don’t have to drive to Hugo! (check out the Nutrition schedule for Places & Dates)
- YES!!! Katie K9 & Dr. Jessica Levy — are available for Nutrition Classes and Behavioral classes for dogs and cats, to be held where you want us or at Katie K9’s — if you do not have a place to hold a class. Maybe put together a fundraiser for your rescue group. Call for prices and details.
