Our Program

We are a group of people who are passionate about enhancing opportunities for youth from under-resourced communities and giving homeless dogs the chance they deserve to live a happy life.​

What We Do

Our 3-week programs bring local youth and shelter dogs together to work one-on-one with the encouragement of our dedicated team members. We use rewards-based, force free dog training as a model for promoting self-discovery and nonviolence.


K9YA students enrich the lives of the dogs they work with by providing much-needed socialization, teaching basic behaviors and developing trusting relationships.  K9YA dogs enrich the lives of the students they work with by helping them understand the importance of empathy, initiative and a positive outlook.
