North to Alaska—- to train dogs?

Last week Modi, my 3-year-old Malinois and I returned to Anchorage Alaska to help some dogs and their owners become better companions. Some of the dogs that we worked with were previous friends/clients that just needed some refresher training, others, we had never worked with before.  

Modi and I cheered on 2  On The Ball K9 Training LLC clients that took their AKC Canine Good Citizen test at Alyeska Canine Trainers.  This test consists of 10 steps including greeting a friendly stranger, reaction to another dog, walking through a crowd, sit/stay & down/stays, etc.  Congratulations to Diego & Kiska for passing their test and becoming Canine Good Citizens.  

While in Anchorage, we helped with problems ranging from basic puppy manners to dealing with a pack of 6-8 dogs. We also spent a day being a tourist, visiting the Saturday Market  and taking some time out to pose by some Anchorage art.

Lets go for a ride


That is one big bear!










Modi and I would like to Thank Diego, Kiska, Titan, Bailey, Tucker, Zoe, Emma, Takoda, Gilbert, Bella & their owners, as well as Bubba & her pack for having us back in Alaska. We are very grateful to have such loyal clients that would allow us the opportunity to return to Alaska to help them with their dogs.  Thank You so much!  

 Below are just a few testimonials from some of our newest clients in Alaska.  





“Thanks Summer! It was great having Bailey work with you and we are on track now after your instructions”–Cody & Bailey  





“Hey Girl!  Thank you for taking a wild ride with Bubba’s pack, and transforming me into a more calm, assertive pack leader, and the pack into a more calm, submissive pack!  What was becoming a stressful situation, has become a more pleasurable experience after only two sessions with you!  Your energy is calming and your knowledge is great! I do admit that it is a bit more work for me and somewhat exhausting, but in due time, I anticipate that our new behaviors will soon become second nature and routine. Thank you again for coming to Alaska and sharing your expertise and patience!  You and Modi are a delight!”— Michele “Bubba” Palatas

“Summer, Even tho we had only 3 hours, I really learned a lot. I know I need a lot of practice but I don’t think I’ll freak out now when we encounter other dogs. Now I have good info and will be too busy multitasking. Thank you and Modi so much-some of the best money I have ever spent. Aside from the numerous mosquito bites, it was a great (and exhausting) day!”– Deb & Bella
