Frequently Asked Questions

  • Do I have to pay everything up front?
  • Crimson K9 Northwest Indiana Dog Training requires upfront payment for many Northwest Indiana dog training services. Payment for our Private Lessons are due at the time of your 1st Lesson.  If you are purchasing a pre-trained dog, a $500 deposit is required. Then, you will pay the balance when your pup comes home. We accept personal checks and cash as payment.

  • What are your certifications/training?
  • One major problem we see with dog training is that there is no governing body that regulates dog trainers. In other words, anyone can call themselves a dog trainer, and take your money, with no training, certification or accountability. This is bad for dog owners and has led to many people being duped or unsatisfied.

    We believe anyone who works with other people’s dogs, especially when it’s being done for payment, should be trained and certified. Beware of any trainer that hasn’t been formally trained and who downplays certification. We are trained and certified and in addition, we are consistently adding to our education and training, always working to get better. Your dog deserves that kind of commitment.

  • What are my Northwest Indiana Dog Training options?
  • Private In-home Lessons

    Many Northwest Indiana area dog owners are taking advantage of our Dog Training private in-home package. This is where we come to your home (or we can meet in a park), and train you and your dog. This is an excellent option for the dog owner who wants to be a part of their dog’s training. You and your dog will meet with your trainer for 4 or 8 lessons (one hour each). The lessons are scheduled every week or two, depending on how quickly you and your dog are coming along. Contact us today for more information on this option for dog training in Northwest Indiana.

  • How do I get started in purchasing one of your trained dogs?
  • You can start by contacting us. This will give us some information about you and will help us best serve you. If you want a custom trained dog, please inform us as to what you are looking for (breed, sex, color, size, temperament, etc.).

    We also breed Australian Cobberdogs and often have puppies available.  This breed is perfect for families and service/therapy.  They are also "allergy-friendly."  For information on adding an Australian Cobberdog to your family, visit our website or contact us today.
