About Us

Getting your dog out the front door for exercise and exploration is the best way to improve and enrich your dog’s life. Going for a walk or run with your dog should be the highlight of your day for both you and your dog. If it isn’t, we can help!

After fostering and adopting our own challenging rescue dogs, we understand how difficult it is to find good training and behavior help as well as reliable, trusted support. K9 Runner provides personalized in-home training and behavior coaching as well as exercise, enrichment, and in-home care.

About Us

Pete Stevenson is a CBCC-KA certified behavior consultant through the Certification Council for Professional Dog Trainers.  After seeing the positive benefits of running with his own adopted dogs, Pete began volunteering to run with shelter dogs and has spent the past 15 years working with challenging rescue dogs. Pete has been successful working with a range of behavior challenges from the wild and untrained to severely fearful and over-reactive.

Our Approach

We believe that the best training and behavior modification program starts with a foundation of exercise and enrichment.

We teach your dog how to reliably respond to our requests and ultimately we aim to set up a learning environment to allow your dog to make the right choices independently.

We hope to improve the quality of your dog’s life as well as your relationship and bond by allowing your dog to have the opportunity to express normal dog behavior, appropriately, within your family home environment. Ultimately, training activities with your dog should be enjoyable and rewarding for both you and your dog.
