Why "Yahr Complete K9s"?

The original name: I originally chose the name Balanced K9s in 2019, because I believe there should be balance throughout all life. Balance is defined as an even distribution of weight and as a condition in which elements are equal. A person who learns to back up must also learn to move forward. They must understand both how to relax and play. So do our pets. We need to learn how to balance our bodies to help give clear cues to our pets to understand what we are asking of them.

The name change: In February of 2022, we decided to rebrand and become Yahr Complete K9s, this name change was crucial to allow continual growth. Yahr Complete K9s was born so we can continue to encompass training for your companion's whole life from the new puppy who came home to your senior pet who may need help with mobility. The Yahr comes from my married name as my family is here to help yours blossom. I still choose and will continue to choose positive, force-free training to help you achieve your goals.

It's vital for us, as a family, to support our pets, giving them a healthy life physically, mentally, and emotionally, which allows us to have a reliable pet and live in a peaceful house. Learn how to incorporate positive training and fitness into everyday life to enjoy living with your pet again.

Passionate. Patient. Persistent. Animal Lover. These are just a few of the characteristics that describe my style. I know animals are different, and I'll work with you to give them guidance tailored to their needs.
