Welcome to K-9 Motivation & Von Risden Haus German Shepherds.

Some of the services we offer include basic and advanced obedience training, behavior modification, AKC obedience, training for Schutzhund, protection work, doggie daycare, boarding and German Shepherd sales.  All breeds and temperments are welcome! Please see our services section on the 'about us' page for additional information.

Our goal at K-9 Motivation is to help you have a more positive relationship with your dog through training, education, and communication.  

We want to help you and your canine succeed in this learning process through a comprehensive educational training program uniquely designed for you and your dog.  As no two dogs are alike, no two training programs are alike. Some dogs will work for praise alone, while others need further motivation such as a ball, a toy, or a treat. At K-9 Motivation, we will evaluate your dog and lifestyle to determine the best course of training for you and your special canine companion.

We would love to hear from you!  We are happy to help and welcome your questions and comments.
