Steve Brooks K9U specializes in behavior problems and pet obedience for the real world.

“From first-time puppy owners to rescues to seniors and disabled dogs — even expectant mothers who want to learn how to introduce a dog to a new baby; I specialize in behavior problems of all kinds and teach a solid foundation of real-life manners to dogs of all breeds and all ages. I love teaching dogs tricks just for fun and also to curtail behavior problems. I also teach Veterinarians, Vet technicians and staff how to handle difficult dogs safely while enriching the hospital environment. I also work as a consultant to help families choose the right dog with the right disposition, and then I train both the dog and the owners.”
