Tim’s Dog Training Philosophy
My Name is Tim Franks, Owner of On Command K-9 Academy.
As a fully certified Dog Trainer, I’ve been training Dogs since 1988.
Over the years I have developed a training technique that is based upon the foundation of clear lines of communications between dogs and their pet parents.
My training philosophy focuses as much on training the pet parent to become a dog’s leader, as much as it is focused on training the dog to respect the parent’s decisions and directions.
The relationship between a dog and its owner should never be based upon fear (punishment) of unwanted or undesired behavior, but based upon the ability of the dog’s owner to lead and communicate effectively of rules and boundaries that the dog is expected to follow.

Keys to Successful Dog Training
Every door or padlock has a perfectly notched key made for a successful entry.
Dog training is kind of like that perfectly notched key. Being a dog owner you must become that perfectly notched key for success with your dog.
You must be notched with:
- calm and assertiveness
If you are missing any of these five notches on your key when handling your dog, like the padlock, the key simply would not work because one or more of the notches were missing for everything to line up perfectly for success.

Foster a Dog
On Command K-9 is always looking for Foster Parents for their service dogs in training. Fostering gives you the opportunity to take part in the training and care of dogs who will go on to help their new service human. Fostering comes with plenty of doggy kisses and snuggles, but it also requires some work. Foster families are usually involved in training the puppies, from as young as six week of age up to anywhere between 12 and 18 months old. On Command K-9 Academy will come to your location once a week at your convenience to work with you and the dog.
We are always looking for foster homes. The dogs below have already been placed. Call us for a list of dogs currently needing a foster home. All dogs are extremely cute and smart!
