Camp K9 Training was founded at the beginning of 2017 by Andres. Andres is the sole owner and operator of his company. He founded this company on a passion, a passion for dog training. He realized this passion in 2014 when he adopted one rambunctious husky puppy named Zoey. At 8 months old she was a handful; always running away, being food aggressive, barking, and not to mention the potty training! After realizing he was going to need real heavy-duty methods to keep his pup in check, Andres began working with her day and night. After many long weeks of training later, Zoey showed real results. Without the worries of constantly keeping her in check, he could do almost anything he wanted with her. Taking her on walks without a leash, feeding her in front of other dogs, and most importantly having her obey every command he gave her was not only impressive to his friends, but started to catch the notice of those around him. It was then Andres decided to pursue a career in dog training.
He was accepted and attended The Tom Rose School for Professional Dog Training in 2016 where he spent many months learning techniques and methods to further his career in professional dog training. He learned basic training techniques to help turn the most rebellious dog into the perfect family pet; but also has and is continuing to learn advanced training skills for specialized fields such as police and military canines.
Andres enjoys spending one-on-one time with all different kinds of dogs. Learning their strengths and weaknesses to not only be able to train, but to connect with these dogs helps Andres achieve the best results. Consistency and persistence are the skills that ultimately determine his success.
One of the most important aspects of Andres is being able to give back to the community. While running his business, Andres works with local shelters to train dogs with difficult behavioral issues. After going through his training program, most of the dogs he has worked with are quickly adopted. Always searching for the best, Andres continues to pursue his goals all while learning along the way. He is the solution to the age-old saying, you can’t teach an old dog new tricks!
