Who are we?
Originally established in San Francisco by owner Theophainia Brassard, Refined K-9 is now a larger team of trainers offering award-winning service in the North Bay (Marin County) San Francisco, and the East Bay! We offer private in-home behavior modification and obedience. In-home Puppy Foundation Programs. Board and Train programs in some of our trainer's homes, and at our facility in Tracy CA. We recently partnered with Petfood Express to offer puppy classes and socials in East Bay Locations! Refined K-9 is more than just a team of trainers, we are a community. Our LRA (Leash Reactive Anonymous) class has people flocking from all over the Bay Area on Saturdays to Treasure Island. Dog owners who have never been able to join group classes because of reactive or aggressive behavior now have a safe place to work together. We love providing this opportunity to connect with other dog owners who have has similar experiences to provide a welcoming and understanding atmosphere where owners build confidence and dogs gain real-life experience and exposure. Our trainers gather together as often as possible to troubleshoot cases, work with our own dogs, and generally just have fun together. In "our off time", we can be found working our own dogs in a variety of different competitive sports, or just grabbing dinner!
Who you are... We know you're out there!
We are on the hunt for an experienced trainer who understands balanced training as their own methodology. Our constant flow of training requests requires you be able to work with some aggression cases, as this is one of our specialties. We like to play it safe, so all cases are filtered via phone consult before booking with you. While our other team members are independent contractors, we work together in many ways. Communication via phone, email, texting will be a daily/weekly task with our booking staff. A reliable vehicle is a must. Because of the different approaches to training, we love learning from each other and encourage our trainers to keep current with seminars and classes for trainers. We hope your toolbox is as open as ours! Our trainers meet monthly for an "all-hands meeting" to discuss ways to make your job even better.
There is no shortage of client opportunities with Refined K-9! Our trainers enjoy this "job" because they are able to make their own schedule and take on as much or as little as they want. NO BURN OUT here! The mental health of our trainers is incredibly important to us. Any job has it's ups and downs so we stay in close communication with you to be sure you are getting the work you not only need but want to be doing. This caseload is slightly different for each trainer on our team. Our booking staff helps you handle your schedule so you can enjoy helping clients and of course... Training dogs! Because our trainers are independent contractors you would receive a percentage of every training package depending on your level of experience. If you are newer to dog training, this percentage will increase as your experience does as well.
